AWISLguy (2749) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a yellowish orange with a spongey white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has caramel and pine. And caramel. And pine. And caramel. Very sweet smelling - to the point of feeling my teeth rot. Taste is of sweet caramel, spicy pine and bittersweet orange with a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes somewhat dry and to the sweet side of bittersweet. Some alcohol. A thick caramelly resinous brew. No clue on the bottle date.

jcr (2647) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Draft at Santa Fe taproom. Hazy golden body. Fizzy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, citrus and grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Long bitter finish. Medium to full body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Too bad the bitterness masks whatever else might be in this beer. So not near as flavorful as DIPAs like Dreadnaught. Actually liked Marbles IPA better.

Botte in Santa Fe.

I like the happy discoveries one makes when sampling new beers from new regions. Somehow the fun is enough in the exploration that a 90-th percentile gem makes up for slogging through a half-dozen beers in the lower half of the distribution.

This is the gem that has made worthwhile my otherwise disappointing exploratory efforts this week in Santa Fe. Its not a world beater --- the Sculpin and the BigEye PA that I had last week in Santa Barbara are better --- but its darn good and markedly better than the average new experiment on the Seattle grocery shelves. So Im delighted, here in my hotel room, to marvel at the over-the-top (in a good way) candied grapefruit aroma of this beer. Im enjoying the juicy tropical flavors, the well-rounded bitter finish, the laid back malts, the thinner-than-8% mouthfeel, and doggone it, the 22 oz are gone long before Im ready to say farewell.
