COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied deep mahogany ale with ruby red highlights. Citrus notes of chamomile, grapefruit and Meyer lemon brighten the aroma. A zesty array of hop flavors from mango and bitter orange to green mint and hibiscus meld with the nutty, roasted caramel and subtle dried fruit flavors of the complex malt profile to create a surprisingly fresh, yet warming example of the style.

bhensonb (14989) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours very dark - but held to light theres a lot of garnet in it - decent creamy beige head. Aroma is mild cat piss - but theres some roasty malt and arguably pine too. Full bodied cause of the creamy carb. Flavor is roasty malt with a heck of a lot of citrus and resin. Fact is, the feel is actually kind of like a hoppy barley wine - but theres too much hop for that. Point: its not harsh - its smooth - but its hoppy enough to stand up as a NW hop bomb IMHO. Curl up around one or two of these, and go to bed. Excellent ale.
