3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass a little.
The aroma is subdued - some sweet malt and stinky hops.
The flavor is sweet soapy malts with some old fruit and a big harsh resiny bitter finish that lingers. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall, a big hop bomb with harsh resiny stinky hops.

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.

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!
