3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a cloudy cantaloupe hue with a medium off-white pillowy head with nice retention. Aroma consists of cooked vegetables, caramel, citrus powder drink, berries. Taste is like a cross between a Pac-NW IPA and a Belgian wit, which I expected; it starts out sweet before becoming quite bitter. Spicy Belgian yeast (clove is prominent) mingles with American hops to create a completely different beast. Highly carbonated and an oily mouthfeel. Interesting experiment.

22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Looks copper with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel and pale malts, and light wheat and spice. Flavor the same, but something is a little weird on the finish. Average texture. A decent beer.

On draft at Tap 25. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. The aroma has some skunky, dank hops and maybe a touch of wheat. The flavor is thick with lemon and orange fruit and a citrus peel bitterness. Full, fizzy body with some honey on the palate. Any wheat flavor or character is hidden by the hops and heavy palate. Pretty tasty though.

Bomber. Hoppy citrus aroma, golden color with decent head. Heavily carbonated with a bitter finish and lots of flavor. Like other belgian IPA’s but not subtle in any ways.

22 oz. can. This is an interesting brew. Full, fluffy head that shrank, leaving ¼ inch head. Good lace. Nose is a true blend of wheat, grass and tropical hops. Malt base is bready with some caramel, and somewhat floral. Citrus hops with a hint of that Belgian yeast. Worth a try for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a frothy protein rich two finger head that sticks along the edges quite well. Aromas are slightly muddled but notes of wheat, belgian yeast and fresh hops sneak through. On the palate this beer is refreshingly delicious. Not too complex but well constructed enough to highlight bits of wheat hops and slight traces of belgian yeast comes through on the spicy end. Nice lingering hop bitterness. This 22oz is hitting the spot for my first beer at the end of the week !

Pale golden coloured beer. Tastes good, a bit wheaty and a bit of IPA as advertised.
