Really pretty golden copper color with a billowing white head. Lots of hop aroma at first, but seemed to die off. Crisp, toasted malt flavor with a lighter than expected dry hop bite. Nice, clean straight forward ale and I like the concept of "Grow Your Own" they used in producing all the ingredients themselves.

22oz bottle. Large, rocky off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, lemon/grapefruit, some bread. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some lemon, bread. Clean light-medium body, some acidity, light resin -- nicely drinkable.

Pale gold; frothy head. Prickly, lively carbonation; medium bodied. Malts have elements of toasted grains, crackers and bread crust. Hops are sharp and snappy, with green-like notes of plants and grass. Only a mild sweetness; not quite enough to keep up with the bitterness, IMO. Some nips of fruit, such as orange rind and lemon. An earthy yeast flavor can be detected from start to finish. Overall, not too shabby, just a little rough around the edges.

The pour is a hazy, pale gold with a moderately full, white, creamy, rocky head which is is mostly lasting and leaves lots of soapy lace. The nose is pleasant but simple with grass, light floral, light grains, and faint lemony citrus and pine. The flavor is similar with a piney bitterness, light pepper, cracker malts, faint honeyed biscuits, and lemony citrus. The palate is nice with a moderate body, lively carbonation, and silky mouthfeel. The finish is crackery, spicy, and bitter with pine notes and lingering lemon. I donít really know what to say about this one. Nothing really bad to say but not really what I look for in a APA, lacking the rich malt undertones and big citrus notes. However, a nice appearance and a nice palate help make it enjoyable.

Pours golden with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Notes of light citrus, wood, fragrant hop resin, crackery malt, pale malt. Medium bodied with soft, foamy carbonation. A very nice beer, quite enjoyable.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, straw, earthiness and spicy hops with a smooth dry malty finish.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
Biscuity crackermeal aroma, toasted golden. Dark gold, strong white head. Very one sided and lacks a hoppy balance. More crackermeal, dries out in the finish as the toasty body subsides rather than something contrasting coming up to meet it. Drinkable.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bomber - very respectable idea, and unlike SNís "estate" beer, it isnít twice as much as their regular offerings - pours a hazy straw color - well-sustained, soapy lace - a very dry pale ale, with a lot of crackery, dusty malts - the fairly strong hop profile compliments this fairly well - they are fairly bitter, but donít taste all the fresh - a bit of lemony character on the tail end, along with some toasted grains - it has a few minor flaws, but itís quite good.

Thanks Mark for sharing the bottle brought back from Oregon! Pours a hazy glowing pale orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is a zesty burst of citric fruits and a bit of a peppery spiciness. Very fresh fruits with a nice strong malt backbone. Flavor starts again with a quick shot of citric fruits, some mango, nectarine, very juicy hops. The malts really come in strong, I feel like they were more present than a lot of other american pale ales. Nice bready graininess to balance the lightly bitter finishing hops. Medium to full body and a soft yet prickly carbonation. Very quaffable pale ale.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2010
bottle. lightly hazed golden wheat body, patchy, sticky, billowy white head - gorgeous head retention. nose of crusty dried crackers, snappy and dry hop cones, light pine wood, light lemon zest, light cracked grains and pils/pale malt. husky, somewhat assertive cracked grains and dried/stale crackers up front; medium to heavy dryness. hops are dry and pungent but also resemble something like dried garbage and dried/stale vegetables, as if theyíre green but extremely far away from fresh. finishes with a mild chalkiness and without really deciding what it wants to be. generic pale ale, underhopped IPA, iím not really sure. as a whole there are bright spots (dryness, crackers, light zest from the yeast) but the malt is far too rough and it finishes as a very forgettable beer.
