3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clean, light, tasty IPA. The body is bright tangerine with an average head and light carbonation. Lots of sweet citrus in the aroma; lemon and some melon, too. The flavor is crisp and tart. Orange and creamy, butterscotch malt. Poured from the bottle right out of the fridge, this thing hit the spot.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Appearance is a light golden bronze color with a cap of off-white foam and bubbles. Lots of pine resin, tropical fruit, grapefruit and lemon in the aroma. The taste starts with a potent dose of tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit rind along with some pine, hops resin and toasted malt toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a clean, bitter citrus finish. Overall, a fantastic West Coast style IPA with just enough balance and complexity.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass produced a finger worth of white head that laced out wonderfully. The body of the brew was a clear copper in color
I got huge aromas of citrus fruits and flowery grasses coming off the nose of this one. It was really a pleasant aroma not harsh like some IPAís it did add a lot to the experience. The flavor defiantly was a west coast take on a IPA very hop forward. There is also enough sweetness form the malts to keep this brew from being one of those one dimensional brews. It had a light to medium feel to it with good carbonation.
I enjoyed the bomber and would love to have another glass. It was worth the wait and I will continue to look for a fresh bottle in Mass if I can come across one. I have been looking for two years now with no luck, they just donít stick around. Now I know why.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Delightful fruity/citrus aroma, with bit of cereal behind. Taste is very west coast ipa, lots of grapefruit, other fruit. Quite dry, but a little sweetness in there to start, before fading to bitter, bitter, bitter. Finish is somewhat muted.

On tap at Ray's. Clear dark golden, soft white head. Nose is bubblegum, mango fruity hop nose. Soft and smooth on the palate and really well balanced from sweet to bitter. Resinous hops with just enough malt sweetness. Big fan

12oz can to Sierra Nevada IPA glass
A - Brassy golden body, crystal clear, firm 2 finger off-white head. Textbook retention and lacing showing off.
S - Awesome bouquet of citrus aroma. Grapefruit, apricot, spicy, light bready malt. Yeast comes out more as it sets. The aroma is spot on. A harmonious balance of hops, yeast and malt.
T - Spicy grapefruit bitterness right off the top. Bright and clean. Sweet and bitter grapefruit flesh morphs into resinous grapefruit rind bitterness toward the end. Citrus, pineapple, and, stone unripened stone fruit dominate the palate. It has a simple sweetness that plays off the hops wonderfully. Semi grainy malts add just enough backbone to support the strong citrus hops. Finishes crisp and clean with a long bitter aftertaste.
M - Medium full body, low to medium carbonation, smooth with a very clean finish.
This might be the best IPA Iíve had to date. It is clean, precise, and executed almost flawlessly. Itís bursting with hop flavor and bitterness without being over the top which is hard to come by. The layering of flavors are very impressive. As of right now this is my favorite IPA to date. This 6pack was 15.99 but worth every penny.
