Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Iím really enjoying this one. the aroma is piney, with citrus notes. it pours wonderful with a golden rod color and an off white color. taste is pine tree, malt and all around bitterness that is balanced. the Alcohol is also really well hidden, this does not taste like a 10% ABV

22oz bottle thanks to McBackus. Pours a hazy straw color with hints of orange and gold. Wispy white head. Aroma is dry and spicy with strong hoppy grapefruit. Ruby red grapefruit is predominate with a hint of sweetness. Malt body is negligible, mostly hops in this. Strong citrus rind and ruby red grapefruit. Medium body, creamy with a semi-dry finish. Good.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #3300... Bottle purchased at Bodega Blue... Clear, orange/gold ale with a large, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Grapefruit, tropical fruit aroma; even a little white pepper. Big, bicuity malt flavor is dwarfed, but not entirely muted, by the ultra-bitter, heavy-handed Amarillos. Full-bodied with subtle carbonation. Lengthy, biscuity, bitter finish.

Bomber. Light gold color. Sexy head. Nice nose of citrus fruits, weeds and herbs. Flavor is nice. Itís hoppy in a good way, but the malt character seems to be severely lacking and there isnt much balance. That being said, as a versatile beer drinker who appreciates hoppy beers, I enjoy the flavor. Body is also very thin, disappointing. That being said, still a pretty tasty brew.

22oz. bomber. Clear, light amber color with a large, sudsy off white head that left sticky lacing all over the glass. Nice aroma of grapefruit, orange marmalade and a doughy malt background. Starts off lightly sweet, but then turns quite bitter and dry. Grapefruit pith, pine and just a hint of the malt that was in the aroma. A bit chalky. Some alcohol comes through on the finish. Overall a pretty solid beer.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a minimal ivory head. Aromas of citrus, pine, light carmel and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and dry. Flavors of grapefruit rind, earthiness, pine and light carmel with a dry lingering bitter finish.

Had this on tap at mad mex. I knew they didnt make much and was kind of suprised to find it. The aroma seemed to be pretty balanced and had some some citrusyness to it and a lot of caramel and bready notes. Overall the aroma seemed a little lacking. The flavor was okay but not nearly hoppy enough and I was getting some off flavors that probably shouldnt have been there.

Bottle. Light gold and crystal clear. A modest white head that laces well down the glass. Not much aroma, perhaps some hops. Medium body, with a floral and resin flavor that starts out refreshing and ends a bit sweet.

pet3rman (366) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Pours dark gold with thin white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Hides most of the 10% behind some serious citrus and pine notes. Quickly sweetened by malt. Pretty good kick in the mouth. Nice Double.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some caramel, some slight grassy tones, and a little alcohol. Flavor starts off with the citrus and pine hops that give way to the sweeter malts. Decent but has a slight strange after taste. Overall not too bad.
