I enjoyed this, but I really couldn’t do it justice trying to describe it in my notes. It has a lot of what I consider ale-like qualities at first, but it finishes kinda lagery. In between, there is a nice mix of caramel and resiny hops. It seems to morph from an IPA to some sort of hoppy marzen as you drink it.

Bomber from Ace in Boulder, CO. Pours clear amber/copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast caramel. Hop? Med body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt and a heck of a lot of hop. Grassy/herby hop. Noble hop. Not pure Saaz. But very nice. It starts to finish sweet and then the hop goes bump. Incredibly delicious.

2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Pours light golden yellow with whitish head. The aroma is leafy with some estery spice notes. Flavor is kind of papery with some disembodied bitterness. Odd high alcohol note toward the finish. Meh.

This is an interesting drink. It tastes pretty controlled and organized considering they have created a frankenstein here. The beer is a golden amber with a thin creamy head. Lots of small bubbles in the carbonation. The aroma is what i would expect from a lager. They did a really good job of not making this beer too bitter or malty. It is pretty balanced and very tasty.

On draft at Capones. Pours a clear coppery color with a medium sized frosty off white head. Aroma of light citrus, lemon tea, honey and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber in color with a fluffy white head that leaves a bit of white lacing on my pint glass. Aroma is citrusy malts, complex caramel malts, and a little bit of dough. Flavor is upfront citrus, caramel, dough, malts, some bittering hops and citrus in the finish. Pretty tasty, but a tad strange yet familiar at the same time. I commend the idea, and the execution was decent but I don’t think I’d do it again for $9 a bomber.
