22oz bottle 10/30/10 (Binny’s Naperville)-48° in Shaker-Pours a hazy orangish amber with a huge off white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste of the same with a bit of malt and grapefruit thrown in. This medium bodied brew is easy to drink and well balanced.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange, huge head. Strong aroma of citrus. Flavor tasted a bit stale, but could taste toffee, pine, and grapefruit. Very lively carbonation and a slight bitter finish. Definitely not one of my favs, but easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly nice dry pale ale. Well hopped, floral aroma. Citrusy hops, bitter but wet. IPA level bitterness in a light pale ale, very drinkable and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bomber, pours a orange color with a thick white head, has a hoppy yet sweet aroma, has a dry hoppy flavor and is nothing special but isn’t terrible.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle. Floral hops nose, not very pronounced or strong. Pours a nice orange-gold with a thin head -- there was haze, but I can’t tell if it’s chill haze or part of the beer. Drinks thin and unimpressive -- as bruising as their other beers are, this one’s a mediocre lightweight.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours burnt orange with a white head. Aroma off toffee, butter, leaves, light pine, bread. Kinda strange on the nose. Tastes of bread, pine, soap, flowers, and corn. Finishes like toast with a bit of pine and grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied with abrasive carbonation that thankfully swirls out effectively enough. It works as an after-work beer, but it doesn’t please much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; had this one way back during my family xmas beer tating. Pours a amber/gold color with a whitish head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit, herbs, pine and caramel. Flavor was similar, but too unrefined for my liking. Some balance, but everything did not come together well enough when compared to others of the style that I prefer.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sparkly, clear with a slight bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, but nothing to write home about.

20060121 Bomber shared with Dickinsonbeer. A big step up in the APA style at the time from what I had been used to, this beer’s highlights included fairly big body with sturdy pale malts. The hop presence was dry, brash, and a bit of a stretch over what most easily available APAs were bringing. Enjoyable enough. I thought these guys went out of business though? Perhaps they’re back.
