Bottle pours copper color. Nose dank hop and resin. Taste bitter bite up front resin, strong mid palate bitter. Not getting much from the added spices, or the wood for that matter. Wonder if they left any of the pine tar on the bats while aging the beer? They should have.

Clear amber with a decaying white head. Aroma is hop wax and earth, which leads to a more dense body. Lots if floral bitterness. An extremely early IPA sk like dirt if you eat/drink this one.

Beer with a cause is good with me. This one is okay, but it isnít anything special. Itís certainly drinkable, but it probably isnít so memorable. Hey, at least it is for a good cause.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. From notes. Pine and citrus with orange and grapefruit. Are they serious that this was aged on baseball bats? Weird, but ejoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big zesty nose of lupalin hops and citrus. Pours a dark orange, almost brown, under a big tan head. Taste furthers the big smack of hop aroma, and Iím comparing this to the dried flower hops I just stuffed in a few jars for safe keeping yesterday. Very citrusy, what with the added orange peel. I think we can compare it to a Tyranena Scurvy. Very sticky malts, but not overly sweet. After a month in my fridge, itís still a powerfully hoppy but enjoyable IPA. Those buying it to support the charity may find themselves somewhat gobsmacked.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is citrus, sweetish malts/syrup and a hint of tea. The flavor is citrus, syrup notes/thickness, citrus zest, malts and a dry/bitter and slightly off finish. Goes to a great cause, unfortunately knew from the aroma that it was going to be middle of the road.

Bomber from Beer Run. I didnít even realize this is a fundraiser project, so Iím glad to learn it is and that a relatively local brewery (Center of the Universe) participated. Pours a clear amber color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of strong citrus notes, pale malts and mild wood. The taste is raw wood notes, pale malts, caramel, herbal, resin hops. Medium bodied, well balanced, lingering bitterness. Nice beer.
