3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark amber with nice white head. Slightly dirty citrus and floral scent. Strong hops on a soft biscuit malt. Long grapefruit finish. Some woody notes throughout. For a session I might have gone lower ABV but it is a nice drinker.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2011 Had again and while still good, this is really pretty dry, almost a bit too much.
First rating 4.5 Other than a fairly indistinct aroma this beer is awesome. Great hop flavor throughout with a nice dry hop finish. A good malt flavor as well but this is good enough that they should take it off of seasonal and make it a regular.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden under a generous foamy off-white head. Big nose of springtime flowers and greasy leafy lupulin hops and a touch of lemon zest. Big taste of toasted biscuit and earthy leafy hops, a bit of bitter resin, and a finish of cracker. Not shabby, just a bit more earthy than I like.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Floral hops are strong in the nose. Slightly hazy golden-copper body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled, white head that lasts throughout and coats the glass with lace. Deliciously malty toasty flavour with a nice complement of floral and spicy hops and fairly pronounced bitterness in the backend. Medium body with wonderful fine bubbled effervescence. Enjoyed on tap at Portland Craft.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle... Poured a hazy amber with a big whit head. Hops and big malts on the nose. A mild bitterness from the hops with some citrus-like and was quickly balanced by the roasted/toasted malt and caramel notes. Very refreshing and a good session ale. Straight forward but well made.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from BevMo Salinas. Nose is floral and hints of citrus. Very lightly hazy urine yellow with a medium yellow tinged head (should be drunk out of a urine sample cup?) Flavor is lightly bitter with lemony citrus hints.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is pretty light to me, and I only get some grassiness coming off it. Taste is actually fairly bitter, but has a nice bit of toasting coming through on it. Pretty decent drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from BevMo Mountain View.
Brilliant clear golden in color with a lasting white head and excellent lacing that totally coats the glass.
The aroma is like a spring rain (I assume that’s where the name comes from). Some wet leaves and earth for sure, along with pale malt and herbal notes.
The flavor has pale malt and just a touch of caramel, with considerable hop bitterness, herbal and earthy.
Dry and crisp on the mouthfeel with medium body and a good lightness to it.
Good stuff, a real beer’s beer as I like to say, not something that an old redneck would think was to froofy-froofy, but still tasty. I approve.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a slightly hazy orange to gold with a foamy white head and very robust lacing rings. Big nose of citrus and pine hops. Medium mouthfeel with distinct carbonation. Flavor is caramel malts and bitterness from the hops, and the finish is lightly bitter. A very drinkable and enjoyable APA.
