3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours clear dark copper with a 3 finger frothy beige head. Firm aroma of pine. Med body. Very hoppy. Lots of pine with a little citrus and arguably floral. Even a bit earthy. There’s a pretty strong roast malt backbone, but the hops rule. This is really bitter and flavorful. Highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at the brewery
Red amber with near brilliant clarity and just a little bit of fine, tiny bubbles. Smell fruity, reminds me of New Belgium’s Hoppy Bock - nice sweet lemon, some mixed berry and bits of grapefruit and other malts. Flavor follows suit with some malt, but then plenty of fruity hops, lemons, grapefruits and cereal grain flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. The standout so far at the brewery.

Tap at Three Creeks. Pours a low haze amber with wispy lacing. Nose is stickier grain, tea, somewhat savory with Worchestershire sauce. Taste is soapy, grainy, husky, raw, tea. Palate is soapy, papery, tea tannic. Lots of problems.

Color is golden orange. Foam is off-white and creamy. First hit of aroma was a little yeasty. Body is a little slick. Lots of bitterness in the flavor, not much malt.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery in Sisters, OR. Moderate citrus with good sweet malt backing it. Deep copper/orange color. Mix of citrusy hops / somewhat harsh resinous notes in mid / nice balancing act in finish. Medium-heavy body. SA heavy hitter. A bit rough and crude, but still tasty and satisfying.

Yay for more breweries in Sisters. Malty body with resinous hops almost creamy character to the beer.
