Bomber from Guerde! Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy/foamy beige head. Aromas of citrus, pine and roast malt. Med+ body. Flavor is very citrusy hoppy with some heavy roasted malt. It’s bitter. It’s good. Finishes a bit harsh - guessing from the roast malt. Could be the hop tho - there’s a lot of hop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured lovely crystal-clear medium garner with a well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and redder fruits with fresh accents of spruce and earth.. well-balanced. The flavor found toasty caramel, fruits, and biscuity notes, again with fresh bitterness around.. pine needles and plenty of residual sugars on the finish. Medium-bodied and a bit grainy on the palate.. OK balance, but I drank it a bit too warm.. solid stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle via trade pours clear ruby red to amber with tan foam head and leaving behind a bit of spotty lacing. The aroma offers up spicy to earthy hops with a bit of crystal to roasty malts. The taste is similar with spicy hops that get pine like and nearly resiny with bitterness to midway making for a pleasing experience so far. Into the finish earthiness and a bit of roasted malts poke their heads up for a moment or two. Nice hoppy brew.
