3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin head but good retention, hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is all lemon and grapefruit. Bold and standard.
The taste is mild at first, almost watery, then building bitterness to the end.
Lower carbonation and medium body.
A normal IPA in the big world of IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours a mostly clear copper with a two finger beige head and excellent lacing. Smells floral hoppy and malt. Flavor is interesting, abundant hop bitterness with obvious heavy malt, but isn’t sweet at all. Just as massive hop and malt in the finish and aftertaste. One of the most bitter beers I’ve ever had. Is anything but average, has its pluses and minuses.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
22 oz bottle. From a kiosk in Portland, OR.
Deep amber golden color with a small foamy white head.
Gym hall, sweat, apples and mild sweetness in the aroma... downright horrible aroma... I’m about to throw up...
The flavor is vomit, pine, birch... all the woods and dryness and sweetness. Incredibly bad. I can’t give any craft brew points as the beer is undrinkable.

Tall can, shared with Parksy. Medium orange amber, massive off white head. Caramel and citrus with piney undertones, quite malty, moderate bitterness. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fred Mayer, Portland
Amber color, darker shade, bright, clean, with small head. Strangely, the aroma is cheesy. Lean mouthfeel, rather dry; the flavor is mostly caramel with a light bready and biscuity tone, lightly cheesy; strong bitterness but without the expected hop brightness, some resins are there though.
Because of the strong yeast and caramel character, this beer reminds a lot an ESB, with more hopping.
Weird but not bad. Unexpected.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Caramel nose, with strong piney hops, weeds, herbs. Rich bright copper color with a thick, chunky head. Chewy caramel, hops slathered on with a trowel. Hops presence rises through mid palate and even final. Medium-heavy body, with a definite hop texture. Well, this is nearly a solid bar of hopped caramel. A bit much.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a great IPA. Some hops but more malts. Hopefully it was old because it wasn’t too great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from Roth’s. Deep copper in color upon pouring. Nose is a little bready with some sweet fruitiness. Strong grapefruit peel throughout. A little breadiness as well. Somewhat one dimensional. Strong grapefruit peel finish.

Interesting IPA malty flavor up front with a great hop finish. The smell is deceiving to the flavor. Good beer!
