Bomber from SuzyGreenberg - thanks Ben. Pours a luminescent peachy amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. ? Grassy/herby aroma over mild caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Caramel is light, and the flavor is like Imperial Pilsner. Good stuff. Itís definitely bitter. Good stuff. Repeat indefinitely.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and a touch spicy. A hint of soft fruit and orange peel along with a bit of sweet malt. Light and fairly quaffable brew although itís fairly forgettable. Simple though.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head that fades. Aroma of is malty, a bit of a noble hop like earthy/spiciness, a little bit of fruit-leather-rollup. Toffee. Taste is bitter, a bit astringent, husky, hay. Really a lot of lingering bitterness. Lively bubbles. Dry.

Bottle that RiversideAK threw in as a bonus on a recent growler swap. Pours a just hazed orange amber with a large beige head. Crisp hops, light grain and malt. Citrus and spicy malt. Big earthy grapefruit, touch of sweetness and a bit of alcohol on the finish.

Tap @ The Sushi Bar (McCall, ID): Pours a light amber color with a nice head. The nose is lightly citrusy with a nice fresh hop note and some creamy caramel malts. The flavor is balanced, not overly bitter but with a nice malty body and more crisp hop notes in the tail. Almost an english style IPA with PNW hops. Good refreshing summer ale that isnít TOO light.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really nice malty nose is accompanied by peppery floral hops as well. Pours hazy amber with a fluffy head. The flavor starts with a nice dose of malt, lightly sweet, bread and a touch of toast/caramel and then a really nice blast of floral peppery hops that clean out the finish. Very nice drinking and sessionable, I can see this going with every kind of food.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a dense and creamy platinum blond head that falls fairly quickly away but never falls lower than a solid disc of mousse atop the rest of the beer. Plenty of sedimentary rings of lace and sunspots atop that. Really a showy little spotlight hog of a beer. Big forward pine and mango nose, very abundantly hoppy, lots of power to it. Creamy medium body with plenty of lively carb. Toast, caramel, pine, and mango barging through on the mid palate. Very coherent and harmonious, but still tons of power there. Long resiny finish. Weíve all had this beer under many names from many different places by now, but it never gets old when itís made well from good ingredients, and this beer is a rock-solid example.
