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.

Pours a nice light copper color with a very nice lacing. The malt is good and strong and the hops are very floral and balanced without being over powering

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big hops IPA this was balanced well in the finish with the sweet malt. Great fruity citrus hops in the flavor this was a super beer.

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

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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful appearance; darker than the vast majority of Single IPAs. Almost zero hops in the nose in favor of malt, and that doesn't seem right. Huge malt backbone in the taste is slightly toasted for an interesting twist on the style. Hops seem like an afterthought, and I like that. Mmmm.

22. Pours a slightly hazy rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that piles up and sticks around for a while. Big fresh fragrant dimensional fruity nose, showing oranges and tangerines and grapefruit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and bright acidic citrus and tropical fruit notes--weíve all had this IPA before from a couple dozen different breweries, but this one is really well done, and if you get your hands on a freshie, itís gonna smell and taste pretty delicious. Thereís a lot to like here, because the Wookiee really likes his hops, and he knows how to show them off.
