Armstrong has a big, complex, malty aroma, and a deep mohagany color derived from imported crystal malts. Ample domestic and imported hops balance out the maltiness and compliment this “big” Ale. This beer has more aliases than a mafia Don: formerly known as “Bad Santa” then “Sick-Gnar”, it is now named after Armstrong Woods, but most people think it’s named after a bicyclist. The term "Double Pale" came about because the original incarnation of the recipe was literally double the Annadel Pale Ale grain bill. The recipe has since been tweaked, but the deep color, bold malty aromas and complex hop character still characterize this unique beer.

Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours deeply ruddy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is pretty roasted malt with some herbal hop. Near full body. Flavor is very roasted malt, with a brown sugar aspect, and the hop is hard to pin down. There’s a lot of hop, but this one is malt dominate. Drinks pretty good.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a nice tan head and a coffee and treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses and burnt toast flavor with a long dry finish.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #3. Solid. Dark amber pour. Aroma had a light nutty toast with a bit of caramel sweetness. Easy to drink, seemed like a big brown ale to me, more nutty toast and an underlying sweetness. (2278)

It’s always nice to try a local beer, but it didn’t astound me. It’s an average brew to me as I’ve many a strong ale before - relatively. Expected aroma of bread and caramel; translucent murky orange-brown body with orange-red highlight and soapy head and lacing; balanced taste without any notable flavors; average mouthfeel; decent overall.
