3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark brown with a frothy 3 finger tan head. Aroma is evergreen/resin over a malt that suggests cask. Itís a very fresh aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly chocolate with a good dose of resin/evergreen and a bit of citrus. Itís bitter, and heading towards being harshly so. Itís very tasty.

22 oz. bomber from Rothís Vista Market in Salem.
Pours a dark dark brown almost black with a nice bubbly tan head.
Aroma of piney hop and caramel,burnt oats and a bit of coffee.
Flavour much the same but more towards the piney/resiny hop way..still some dark caramel coffee in the back.
Mouthfeel is quite thin adds to drinkability..lingering bitter coffee.
Nice Cascadian here.

Bomber. Aroma dominated with stout like characteristics, coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is nicely hoppy. Citrus and pine balanced by roast. Balanced between ipa and stout but the intensity is a bit underwhelming.
