Draft- Bright gold cloudy orange with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma and flavor are both a bit weak, with earthy grassy hops and toasty malts. Little citrus as the description states which is disappointing, but okay overall

Thechasm442 (338) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bomber bottled Sept 24 to a tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden orange with a fingers worth of off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is dank pine, citrus, grapefruit, and hints of bread. Taste is big dank pine up front. It’s followed by tons of bright citrus flavors as well as some tropical fruits. There is a nice bready, caramel malt that kind of sits in the background a bit. The beer is somewhat sticky and leaves you refreshed and wanting more. I can barely notice the alcohol. Awesome dank west coast DIPA.

Pour on tap at Beer House, hazy dark orange-red pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of big pine, earth, resinous notes into a bit of caraeml, toasted bread notes, some orange as well.  Taste had a mix of caramel, toffee, nice dank, resinous notes with some spice, pine, grass, touch of citrus, finishing very bitter, dry.

Beaver (1328) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2014
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.
