Dark hazy burnt orange hue with creamy diminishing white creamy with minimal head, sharp citrus and pine needle smell, sweet and bread malt, minimal carbonation syrupy as it warmed, seems high in alcohol there is something funky in the back end. Sweetness and alcohol outdoes everything else.

Super awesome IPA, how have i never had or rated this before? Take Racer 5 and kick it up two notches and this is what you have.

I really enjoyed this! Bomber to tulip, pours dark gold with thick head. Smells of hops and more hops. Dank and pine. Taste hops front to back, full bodied. Much better than the Racer 5.

On tap at Parry's Pizza in HR, CO. A beautiful dark orange with a thick off-white head. You can smell and almost taste the hops before you even drink it. Great mouth feel. Tastes of roasted caramel and a touch of mandarin orange.

This one poured a bright orange with a white head. Aroma was of dank hops, light tropical and grassy notes too, with a mild toasted grain aroma too. Flavor was gree, earthy dank hops, mild lemon and moss too. Pretty solid, but nothing amazing.

Bomber->SA. Dark copper with substantial offwhite head. Citrus hops dominate, with floral notes and a sweet malt backbone. Good, but lacking the depth or bite to be great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep golden light amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is wonderful, but a bit faint. Hints of fleshy fruit, tropical fruit hops with a mild caramel malt. Hop flavors a bit more present in the taste with lots of fleshy fruit hoppy bittersweetness and a mild alcohol burn. Hop character lingers well into the finish with a continued alcohol burn. Excellent beer, but still prefer the Racer 15.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is pretty musty with lots of fresh citrus hops with hints of pine and caramel too. Taste has a light sweetness and very strong bitterness. Bitter, chewy citrus hops throughout. Spicy finish with a slight alcohol burn. Decent DIPA, seems overrated on here.
