3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pretty foamy 2 inch head leaves great lace for the entire glass.. the brew is a slightly hop hazed tangerine orange..
The nose is honestly pretty astounding... like a fruity citrus juice concoction.. lemons.. limes.. melon... yummy.
Wow! Tangerine and tropical fruit hoppiness from front to back on this one.. only enough pale malts to deliver the hoppy goodness .. finish reminds me of grapefruit zest..
Body is on the lighter side for the style.. but it adds nicely to the overall package.. sorta dry too.. and I appreciate it.. dangerously drinkable.. But at $7.50/bomber, it isnít going to happen too often.

Pour is a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is a nice citrus hop presence. Flavor is much the same but with more intense citrus blast with maybe some honeydew and cantaloupe. Very little to no malt presence, this thing is all about the hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amazingly underwhelmed by this. Donít have anything meaningful to add to the 1000+ ratings of this one already -- golden color, citrus and pine in aroma, bitter finish, blah blah -- nothing that stands out at all from any other decent IPA Iíve had. Donít have anything bad to say about it, just remarkable how dull it is. I should probably try this again and rerate, but Iím in no hurry to.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden orange with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Fantastic aroma - citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter throughout with some sweetness opening up in the middle followed by a bitter dry finish that lingers and lingers. Very nicely balanced. Really enjoyed this beer, only thing that didnít suit my taste was the heavy dryness. Mouthfeel was moderate with crisp carbonation. An excellent IPA.

Pretty much the perfect IPA, plus itís always readily available. Sturdy enough malt backbone that lets bright apricot and citrus shine.

Nicely carbonated and clear golden in color. The aroma is of citrus, hops, and lite sweet malts. A simple, balanced, and perfect IPA. The flavor matches the aroma. The finish has a mild bitterness that is very pleasant. It doesnít linger either. Overall this is an excellent beverage to try.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
May 2012. 22. oz. bottle. A masterpiece of an IPA. So balanced and well made and close to perfection. Only a few others can stand up to this one. Pine, citrus, hops, tropical fruit, itís all there.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont (love that place!). Pours clear golden with goodly white, foamy head. Aroma of malty fermenting beer/slight alcohol, pine and slight background orange. Flavor, carried by a medium body, comes on softly and well-balanced. This is one of the most well-balanced, well-behaved and well-roundedly delicious IPA?s in my experience. It?s a crime beer like this isn?t more available on the East Coast. I would be drinking this every week if i could find it, and I?ve been looking for weeks now!

Bursting with citrus and pine aroma. Pours a deep golden color with generous white head. The taste is bitter but opens up to some sweeter tropical flavors towards the end. This beer is so good, I feel lucky to be able to drink it.
