UPDATED: MAR 27, 2009 Dark sugary caramel aroma and color, gummy white head. Great weighted raw grain character, earthy dense hops, but too much caramel malt and it finishes sweet and balanced

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark red/brown with a nice head and lacing. Aromas of floral piney hops, light citrus, and some caramel and toasty malts. Nice and hoppy with a pepper, floral, and citrus bitterness profile. Some toasted malts, caramel, and perhaps toffee make up the malt profile. Nice lingering hoppiness. Very good brew.

650ml bottle. Clear red/brown body with a big beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel and lots of hops. Flavor as a nice, powerful balance of malt, sweet caramel and lots of hops. Fine, rich body and a long flavorful finish. An interesting and well made mix of IPA and red ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish amber with a lingering ring of ambere foam. Aromas of carmel, cocoa, citrus and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, cocoa, nuts, earthiness and light fruittiness with a smooth dry lingering malty finish.
A nice malty red for a change, but I’d still like a bit more fruittiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Bottle Trek. A very thick looking red pour, almost like it’s congealing or something. Decent fluffy head with a very fruity, floral aroma. I don’t know why but for some reason I was expecting the usual American double red, which is to say an Arrogant Bastard knockoff. While this one is certainly well-hopped, it’s got a nicely balanced quality all its own, with citrus hops, sweet malts, and a fairly crisp finish. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. A hazy dark amber beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor though also added a strong note of hops.
