Beautiful rich mahogany/ruby amber. foamy white head. decent retention and lacing. I likes the looks

smells green and wet. caramel comes in and kind of sinks into the first mentions

taste follows the nose. caramel malts with a wet hoppiness, almost a little musty. some loam and almost a dusty/mild spiciness in there towards the finish

I like it. There are other things I'd rather pay for before buying another bomber, but I'd definitely pick it up again at some point

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle into standard pint. Pretty excited for this, deschutes never fals and I like ambers.

A: a finger of offwhite head that is leaving good lacing. A splotchy cap remains. Good clear amber color almost red.

S: fruity hops anda slighly sweet malt smell. Pineapple and other tropical fruit notes. Smells pretty good.

T: the hops aren't as fruity as I was expecting. Solid malty body with slightly bitter end. The taste isn't as good as the smell but I would gladly buy this again.

M: good medium body. Nothing amazing about it.

O: a good amber, but nothing fantastic. I enjoy it and will finish happily.

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Two fingers of head on a fairly clear, but deep red colored body.
The smell is only faintly caramel.
The taste is has a mild malt sweetness to start, then a mild grapefruit bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
This is an easy drinkin' beer but still has some nice flavor.
