Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 08.16.14. A: Citrus, lemon, and funk. A: 2 finger head. See through straw yellow body. T: Citrus, lemon, rye. P: Creamy and watery. O: The rye was not my favorite in this one. Itís just not my thing, so the beer sadly went down the drain.

22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/12/14. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The beer has a very strong citrus aroma. The taste was more orange & lemon zest with some malt to balance out the citrus bitterness. Overall it was ok for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber up in Washington. Excessively awesome spiced nose. Beautiful IPA here, the additional spices really treat things up. Hope I find this again.

Nice looking amber with half inch of rocky head. Appearance score reduced by some floaty bits. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus. Lemon, orange. Smells like those hard candies covered in icing sugar that come in those metal tins. Taste gives a lot more of the malt - a sweet caramel/biscuit. Comes across as really fruity, even juicy. The real fruit addition obviously ramps up the citrus, but it does so at the expense of the...beer part of it. And thereís some unfortunate butterscotch. Refreshing though

Bottle from Whole Foods
Cloudy golden color with a lot of floaties; small head. Strange aroma: lemon, soap, rosemary, heather. The mouthfeel is rather dry; no notable malt flavor; strong bitterness; but it has a soapy character, and herbs, and some citrus peel.
Weird, hardly pleasant.

Bomber From KatHouse, Thanks Brother!. Poured into pint glass. pours a light hazy orang leaving a thin white lacing on glass. Aroma is kinda strange, thinking itís the black lemon and peel ? Taste is peppery. different in a good way though.

This is blasted with lemon and orange. Color, aroma, and taste all display the heavy hand of citrus hops and added juicy fruit rinds. Good beer.
