Clear dark bronze in color. Big sudsy tan white head, persist for minute or so. Aromas are sweet and malty, comparable to bread. Flavor has a slight roasted quality. Big hop punch at the end. Very clean hop taste, sounds strange but it made my mouth feel clean for some reason. Some subtle sweetness is there also. Very good beer, enjoyed alot.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Thin head on a clear, copper colored body. The aroma is grainy and honey, but quite bold for a lager. The taste has a building bitterness that is balanced with a mild sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness and a little bready. Low carbonation and medium body. A really enjoyable beer and quite drinkable.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy copper with a medium collapsing beige head; leaves a ring of ugly big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of dough, toasted bread, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is lightly sweet before a nice hoppy bitterness sets in and lingers there long after the swallow. Itís earthy, grassy, caramelly. Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium. Good.

bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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. Itís hoppier than many IPAs. Very nice. Some roasty malt does come out after taste bud fatigue sets in.

kereltis (33) - Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours an orange brown color, very clear with a mild sweet aroma. Plenty of hops but not over powering. This is a winter ale for the summer ale lovers, light, some what refreshing with a good taste. I tend to prefer darker, stronger flavored winter ales though. This just wasnít warm enough for me.

Pours a finger of white foam on top a clear amber body. Nose is earthy. Medium carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel. Taste is balanced- caramel malts, light bitterness, and a sweet fruit finish. Sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2252) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big malty character up front, breads, toffee. Slight hop character. There was a noticeable sourness to the beer. Not to bad.
