Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear dark copper with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and caramel. Full bodied. Creamy carb. Flavor is very hoppy, with a lot of caramel. The hop is herbal, earthy, floral, citrus. The flavors are strong, but mixed. Thereís hop burn. This stuff is stuffed with hops. Amazing ale. Hop wise.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bomber from Full Throttle Bottles. Pours dark orangish amber with thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet nutty caramel malt and big citrusy hops - notes of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple. Taste is earthy, nutty, mildly roasty caramel malt with juicy bitter citrusy hops. Bitterness lingers through the finish, but pleasantly so. Definitely on the malty side for an IPA, but plenty of citrusy hops balance it out so this works well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dirty amber, moderate frothy sandy head, decent lacing.   Pith, citrus peel, and musty hops on the nose.   Similar tongue, lots of pith and citrus peel.   A bit astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate.   Musty hop finish, a little green at times.   Tiz okay, but not real smooth.   Feels a little green, rough, and a bruiser for being just an IPA.   Lots of pith and citrus zest in this one.   Decent malt
base at least.

Growler pour, hazy orange with spotty white head, very light lacing. Aromas and taste of tangy hops, grapefruit, pale malt toast, pine, and other citrus fruits. Taste is slightly hot for 7 percent but works well with the bitterness. Very nice IPA. Being munsoned was a good thing in this case. Cheers

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from PD. Hazy amber pour with a medium, off-white head leaving heavy lace and with excellent retention. Nose is cut grass, resin and ganja. Medium body and vigorous, fine carbonation, which along with some oiliness yields a superb mouth feel. Resin, toast, weed and biscuit. Finish is resinous, bitter, slight caramel and some toast. At 7% and with a solid body, this is very close to an Imperial. Reminds me very much of the Alpine and GF IIPAs.
