4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours a deep cloudy amber with a medium tan head leaving a little lacing down the sides. The aromas are cedar closet, light oranges and maybe some grass. The mouthfeel is watery and dry with a strong bitterness. This was a great beer! Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the CBX. This is super cloudy for the style and on the darker side of pale ales. The aroma is a little hoppy with modest melon and citrus. It is pretty sharp with a grassy character. Pretty straight forward APA, all in all but not completely textbook. Itís not heavy on the citrus, the bitterness is more in the way of grass or pine. Finishes zesty but light. Fairly decent but nothing to write home about.

Split a 22oz bottle with a friend of mine. Poured a slightly red, clear color. Aroma was a full, sweet malt and floral hop goodness. Had a solid fresh taste to it that simply hit the spot where it mattered.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear reddish amber with a soapy tan head. The aroma has nice smooth toasty malt with a moderate amount of sweetness and light bitterness from the hops. There is light caramel and pine. Medium grainy body with some prickly carbonation. The taste is very rough and earthy with a nice blend of roasted malt and earthy woody hops. The finish has a cracker like taste and some piny hops added. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle courtesy of( liveFREEorRYE ) .Pours a medium deep amber with good size head and strong lacing. A strong malty caramel aroma with resinous and grassy hops in the background. Taste has a strong bitterness soothing into a mildly sweet malt profile that is quite excellent. Leaves a sticky resinous very bitter finish. VERY bitter. This is NOT my style, yet I can still drink this

To me, this is a great table beer and I donít mean that in a derogatory way. This is solid with equal malt and hops. Everyone at the table could drink this and it would pair with most food. Nice amber color with a faint aroma but strong flavor.

This is a very hoppy ale. Itís mostly all thatís in the nose and flavour, there is malt but itís secondary. Fades out bitter but clean, Very orangey, not much on head/lacing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
20100829 Bomber from Wine World. Dark amber, some sediment clouds, with lasting, medium sized, dark khaki head. Aroma is pretzely, peppery, and slightly briny, mineral, like a cedar estuary with some herbal and earthy hops, but pleasantly fresh all around. Flavor is lightly sweet, bracingly bitter, medium spice/pepper from hops and alcohol. Medium bodied with creamy eff, helps break up the bitterness without thinning the mouthfeel. The Rogue yeast actually works very well in this one. What in the world is free range coastal water? Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
medium brownish red, slightly dark for style. large white head. nose of toasted malt and herbal hops. firm bitterness, too firm, before low crystal malt but a lot of toasted, victory-like,malt flavor prior to more herbal hop flavor with some significant residual sweetness for the style with a touch of alcoholic warmth. overall: hops are displayed with too much bitterness and not enough flavor. malt character is nice. residual sweetness is too high for the style making the brew less drinkable. flawed version of the styl
