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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, best by 09/09/14, very cool idea. Nose is heavy orange, zest and rind, with heavy grapefruit and light tropical leanings, lightly dank, some paper and scratchier resins. Weak caramel malt anticipated, but juicy hops. Pours deep but clear orange-red with a dense and creamy beige head. Taste is strongly bitter but not excessive, semi-dry (which is to say semi-sweet) with all of the he above flavors and some doughier edges. Good wood and medium spice from the hops, clean yeast and a touch of soapy cleansing, very fresh and citric with only an average malt background. No alcohol showing, but the mouthfeel is very heavy and wears a bit, medium body otherwise bright, fresh, and clean. Really punches through!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bobmer from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a clear deep honey amber/brown body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma of dry toast, rotting orange, dry maple syrup, touch of dried out brown sugar. Palate is full with rather strong carbonation and an odd not too pleasant aftertaste. Flavor of soap, rotting citrus, earth. BLAH.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with a fluffy and rather persistent pale buff head. Hoppy aroma has definite orange and malty notes plus a woody undertone. Flavor is very hoppy and woody, with orange and malt in the background. Firm body and strong fizz make for a good mouthfeel, while finish is woody and hoppy and just a little bitter. Go to bat four our troops and their families!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Golden with two finger head. Seemed at first to be a pretty standard (but above average) IPA. As it warmed, I caught more of the woodiness, which while subtle, adds some depth. The spicing improved as it warmed a bit too.

650 ml. Lightly hazy orange amber with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aroma is toffee with resin, orange, ginger and grapefruit zest. Tastes of earthy toffee, resin, molasses and lightly sour orange. Finish has some detracting menthol and leafy-wooden bitterness. Light-medium body has a nice smooth carbonation and finishes well to the dry side with some astringency.
