Bomber wife gave me for Christmas from LS. Mild sweet malt and floral aroma. Copper body with white head. Like it that the bittereing hops are mild and a good citrus flavor is what lingers after each gulp. Smooth enjoyable brew.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle... Poured a burnt orange with a white head. Smoked malt aroma and a little yeasty. Syrupy palate. Nice caramel/toffee undertone with pleasant hop and malt balance, leafy presence and very sweet. Really smooth and easy to drink.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Poured a deep copper-golden somewhat orange body with a small but residing white foamy top. Aroma of sweet citrus hops and robust malts. Dark fruity flavor with a distinctly gripping finish of grains and resinous hops. Chewy and delightful for a winter seasonal.

On tap at the Elysian Tangle Town location. It pours a clear deep gold with a copper core and lasting white foam head. Nice sheet lacing. The aroma is pale to sugary malt sweetness, some mild citrus to slightly pine hoppiness and a murmur of dark fruity esters. The taste begins with both lightly roasted malts and moderate pine to grapefruit hop bitterness. The hops begin sweet with hop flavor early and then become increasingly bitter. About midway the malt sweetness peaks with a brief moment of fruity esters before grainy Munich malts pick up the flavor and carry it into the after taste with the growing hop bitterness. This beer is big and hoppy with lots of hop bitterness. It ends somewhat thick and viscous.

RSRIZZO (1972) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Had this beer on 1/2/2003. Aroma is a nice sweet scent with hints of hops. Color is a hazy golden orange with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is hoppy. Starting with a medium body it goes down with smooth with a slight crispness coming on. Finish comes in with a sweetness that is almost wine like, this is followed by a hop flavor and mild bitterness. Its more of a Pale Ale than a Winter brew but is one of the tastiest brews I have had in a while.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2007
22 oz. bomber. Pours a glowing, very cloudy, orange-tinted brown. It is almost opaque from haze and, held up to the light, looks like the color of caramel with bright orange highlight on both sides. The head pours very thick and is a yellowish off-white. It slowly fades into a medium-sized cake that laces the glass heavily. The aroma combines smooth, herbal, citrus hops; light honey and crystal malts; and a funky, bread aroma that slightly resembles a savory breakfast biscuit. The taste is a nice blend of sweet malts (lots of caramel, pound cake, toffee, and honey) with a beautiful flavor of fresh hops - like they were just harvested from the vine yesterday. The hops give such an amazingly smooth, herbal character - like a subtle hint of pepper and menthol providing the soft backdrop to lemon and orange peel. The finish is very full and quite sweet. The mouthfeel is very thick and full-bodied. The carbonation level provides just the right amount of creaminess and tingle on the tongue. Overall, this was pretty good. It is a bit thick in the mouth, but other than that it is amazing. I think it is a bit underrated here.
