Bottle @ home shared by LeninCat. Thanks Lenin! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a fluffy khaki head. Fairly herbal, doughy, biscuity, woody, a touch sweet aroma. Slightly oxidized, woody/herbal, cracker/doughy, light citrusy flavor. A bit old but not something I think Iíd like normally.

Draft at Big Beers and barley wines. Pours a clear amber /copper color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malt, orange citrus, resin, very mild spices, with a moderate bitterness. Not much of the wood character. Worth trying once.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. The aroma seems to be more malty and fruity. It contains caramel, bread, and orange, to go along with undertones of pine and resin. The taste has a heavy dry pine flavor that dominates. Orange is very prominent, and there are traces of floral hops. But outside of these, the taste is rather lacking. Aftertaste is pine and lingers for a little while. Medium in body, slick yet slightly sticky in texture, with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, this one is unusual. Iím not very happy with the somewhat odd impressions that Iím getting from either the aroma or taste. Iím disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copperish orange,slight haze,short head,scattered froth/lace. Aroma has some malt and some subtle piney herbal hops, slightly spicey. Smooth malty toasty-roasty like, with mild sweet, pretty hoppy piney herbal strong bitter. Good ipa. Taste like alot of columbus to me but apparantly its centennial/cascades only. Good price for a bomber and good ipa.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber pours a bright clear reddish copper with good sudsy tan head. Aroma is a great íredí foresty hop profile. Flavor is agressively hopped as well. Caramel tries to add balance, but it leans heavily to the citrusy/piney//orange zesty hops. Really didnít care for it that much. Very cool idea for a beer, but execution? not so much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up nutty and sweet caramel hops topped by grassy notes and a little citrus.. very much on the malty side. The flavor found dry orange zest laced throughout.. sweet biscuity malts supported.. finished with a lot of sugars lightly cut by tangy orange zest. Medium-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. this just didnít come together very well.
