3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Scottsdale location. The beer pours to a bright glowing brassy amber body with a nice dense, creamy white head. The aroma is similar to an aromatic silage. I don’t have any idea what they were going for here. The flavor was fortunately interesting. Toasted malts meets crisp grains and citrus hops but it’s not overly bitter. Lively and refreshing. The palate is nicely textured and refreshing. I thought it was an APA.

Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy dark copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel with a hint of chocolate. Near med body. Flavor is sort of a toffee/chocolate combo. Treacle aspect. It does suggest a toffee hard candy. Finishes pretty sweet. I’m not thinking this would be wildly popular amongst DIPA freaks.

It’s a style I rather enjoy, this one. It appears as the way I imagine it will smell somehow. Coppery russet in colour, but clear and carrying the remnants of some ugly grey head. It smells of gorgeous caramel malts and bready yeastiness and tastes similar. It is sweet but not cloying and very drinkable.
