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.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a nice looking semi fluffy light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of sweet malts, some spicy wood and a bit of citrus hops. The taste begins with spicy wood blending into some pine and citrus hops that swirl around a thin stream of sweet maltiness. This has a pleasing degree of assertive hoppiness where thereís plenty of balance and depth with firm hop bitterness and mild malt sweetened hop flavor. Nice. This is right at the top for me in this Homefront series.
