On tap at 18th Street. Pour is burnt orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavor is heavy on the tropical fruits with notes of bitter resin, honeydew, mango, peach, toasted malt, and slight booze.

Tap sample. Poured cloudy orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop and earthy malt aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer and exceeded my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to snifter at 18th Street. Looks good; a cloudy orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Smells hoppy and equally malty. Tastes like it smells with some discernible citrus and tropical fruit. Fuller-bodied. Good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber (brewed in Chicago (Pipeworks?), not Gary), pours a hazy dark orange with substantial off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of fruits: peach, pineapple, mango, and tangerine, with some earthy, dank hops at first plus considerable sweet caramel. Taste is Initially bitter, with lots of sweetness in the middle before returning to a dry, bitter finish. This is a big beer with some alcohol in the aftertaste, but not hard to finish. Body is at least medium with average carbonation, and a sticky mouthfeel. I was expecting an evil hop bomb but found a well-balanced DIPA not as brutal as the label may lead you to believe it is. Excellent!
