Appearance is a cloudy dark amber/copper. It smells like honey with citrus and hops. The taste is sweet at first, then bitter. There is presence of coffeesque toasted malts along with citrus. There is a slight bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is crisp with little acidity. Overall, a very drinkable ale but is surprisingly bitter.
As a side note, these Rogue bombers are a little pricey. What is essentially two glasses of beer costs almost as much as a six-pack of some other decent micros.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.
The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.
The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.
This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
