_angst_ (2918) - Göteborg, - DEC 23, 2012
Bomber courtesy of my secret santa joeneugs. Pours tiny hazy deep golden with a rather fluffy offwhite head that is pretty quick to dissipate while leaving some sticky trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, slightly malty, fruity and hoppy with biscuits, crackers, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, alcohol, oily pine, resinous wood, oily fresh lemon zest, caramel, lychee and cape gooseberries. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and fruity with grapefruit juice, oily pine, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, orange zest, lemon zest, overripe tropical fruits, crackers, caramel and hints of gooseberries and green kiwi fruit, mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with caramel, oily pine, pineapple, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, grapefruit rinds and green kiwi fruit. Solid stuff...

Bomber. Floral hop aroma with notes of citrus and pine resin. Pours light copper colored with a large, soapy white head and no lacing. Starts with good flavors of citrus and some floral hop notes. Finishes very dry with strong pine resiny notes and some strong grapefruit acidity and flavor that lingers on the palate after. Nice ipa.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
A bomber. (Whole Foods) Washington, DC. Slightly cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Mild herbal notes, fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and some sweetness in the balanced aroma. Yummy! The flavour is... Wow! Alcohol! Super strong alcohol... And sweetness, malt and piney and resiny hops, mild bitterness and more alcohol... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPABevyGuy (46) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2014
This is like a sculpin on steroids. Very hoppy, citrus and a little earthy, with a bit of malt to balance it out. Flavor lingers around very nicely and you would never know it’s 10% ABV. Awesome brew!
