3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a huge orange-beige head that lingers and produces good lacing. The aroma was sour and tangy with a light fruity hop presence. The flavor was bitter, tart and dryish with moderate fruity hops and light floral hops and a light caramel undertone. The finish was long with tart and tangy fruity hops. Medium body. Not the kind of beer that I would seek out, yet pleasant enough that I could drink it all night happily. Solid.

Pours a cloudy orange, with foamy cream head, aromas of floral hops, pines and citrus with a slight malt hidded in there, the flavor comes across pretty bitter but pleasant. Overall drinkable and enjoyable!

Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Herbal and citrusy hops combined with toasted malt, and earthy notes make up the aroma. Taste is strong herbal hops, citrus fruit, hop oils and toasted malt. Lots of earthiness to this as well. Touch of pine coming through too. Body is medium with a creamy carbonation. Lingering bitterness on the palate. Ends with more big herbal hops, citrus oils, grapefruit juice, earthy notes, and a soft maltiness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a transparent golden bronze with a well-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet grainy pale malts with a floral juicy citrus hop character. Starts with average fullness and good carbonation with a little toasty grainy malty flavor and some citric grapefruity notes before a much drier, slightly earthy and bitter finish that lingers. The bitterness cuts away at the drinkability and thereís not enough sweetness to balance it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Joey da man! Pours hazy apricot with a large foamy white head. Very attractive. Aroma is floral with a lemony snap. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is oddly papery malt with a definite citrus bite. Lots of florality with that. Something like an odd strongly bitter ESB. IBUs must be large. It ends with a little citrus, and a fair amount of bitter. Itís really good ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
In the bomber bottle from Beertopia. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a very thick white head. The aroma give a mild essence of what is to come: floral and citrus hoppiness. The flavor at first reminds me of a pilsner with some fruity pineapple, but the body is very thin and the extreme unbalanced bitterness at the finish lingers on and on with a long harsh palate. This is absolutely not a pre-dinner apperitif beer, so save it for a very flavorful food pairing. I doubt that Iíll ever try this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in an elongated tulip glass. The beer pours a straw-colored yellow color, with a moderate white head. Hop-centric nose of pungent danky scents, along with some grassy character. The palate seems far more bitter than one would expect from 35 IBUs. However, this seems less an indication of heavy hopping, and more a product of the beerís very dry character. The finishing gravity of this beer canít be more than 3 degrees Plato. The lack of malt sweetness isnít missed, as the flavor and complexity of the hops more than make up for the absence of the former. Overall, the beer is an excellent example of a dry American pale ale. Quite enjoyable, if slightly different.

20100321 Bomber from Honeygo. Hazed light amber with tall, rocky white head that sheets lace. Aroma is fresh, definitely malt forward, toasty, and some mild lemongrass and earthy hops. Light, soft mouth feel, medium-light heft, with nice hoppy bite late and clean but mild bitterness drying out the end. Flavor adds some white tea and citrus blossom notes, lingering toasted malts. So far Iíve been able to try these Chatoe series beers when nice and fresh and theyíve all been pleasant and solid beers. I wish more Rogue beers could be so recognizably fresh; I might even buy them once in a while.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a thick foamy white head. The aromas are fresh floral hops and crisp malts, with a touch of bready yeasts. The flavors are spicy yeast, a nice medium hop bitterness that dries out the mouth. A very fresh and clean tasting brew.
