4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Green Wax Dipped 2012 Vintage Bomber. Appearance is a light gold and copper color an inch of sea foam head. Lots of pine, citrus and toasted malts in the aroma. The flavor starts out with grapefruit, mint and orange peel notes along with some caramel and sweet grain. Also a spicy herbal note from the hops in the background. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy and well-carbonated with a clean, bitter citrus finish. Even though it’s a little sweeter and grainier than most Wet Hops, it still delivers a satisfying blend of hops flavors.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 oz. bottle. Pours a copper color with a white head that lingers. Aroma of fresh hop with a bit of malt. Medium body, flavor is a good mix of malt and hop, nicely balanced. Finish is a bit dry, slightly dry. Dry finish...not a bad brew!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with HopTsing. Found this lurking in the beer fridge from last year- no telling how it will be. Orangey and hazy with big frothy head. Smells biscuity, a tad citrusy, a bit dank. First sip is perfumey and sweet, then the bitterness kicks in. I think this is past its prime-- oops, will have to drink faster next time. If I come across it again I will re-rate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased as Sierra Naveda Estate Homegrown Ale: Aroma is fruity. Grapefruit with hints of pineapple and perhaps orange. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a robust, mostly lasting, ivory head and abundant lacing. The taste is lightly bitter. Fruit up front followed by some earthy and grassy flavors. There is a healthy bitterness in the finish and the aftertaste. Medium body and fmedium crisp carbonation. Oveall, an easy drinker. Very tasty and refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle as the Estate Homegrown Ale. Deep, rich, amber colored pour. Off-white head, pretty sizable. Plenty of lacing as it slowly falls. Nice caramel malt aroma and a great fresh citrusy hop bouquet. There is a slight chocolate note I am getting as well. Taste is a very malty flavor with some caramel notes. Great soft hop flavor. A little bitter in the back with some residual malt sweetness. Very good beer.

Bomber. I don’t think I had what everyone is rating. A big malt bomb in a wax top bottle.
