bhensonb (14073) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Amber gold color with a decent off-white head. Lots of resin and floral/grapefruit hop backed by a dose of malty sweetness. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is hop - mostly grapefruit over malty sugar. Finish is bitter and dry, but there’s enough backbone to make this a really enjoyable drink. Quenching? Kind of. Refreshing? Yep.

The taste is orange sherbet, tangerine, kumquat, dried pineapple, hay, resin, straw, grass and a touch of alcohol warmth, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Great balance. Delicious DIPA.
