3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy copper/amber with yellow tinged creamy head. Aroma of earthy hop and sweet caramel. Med body. Flavor is fruity, followed by grassy, ending with residual earthiness. The hop is sufficiently intense to make the malt relatively unnoticeable. It’s hoppier than many IPAs. Very nice. Some roasty malt does come out after taste bud fatigue sets in.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Amber, a bit dark, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Very soft bready and biscuity notes on the nose.   Soft breadiness up front, pale biscuit, not too strong, a little mealy, slightly nutty.
Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Flat finish, a little bready, nutty, mealy, and biscuity.   Doesn’t have as much umph as it did when it started.   Even then, the umph wasn’t that big.   Seems like a lighter example of
an ESB.   I also expected it to be a bit more crisp, which it was not.   Tiz okay tho, clean at least.
