COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not sure what you just drank? Wheat beer? IPA? Yes, it is. This mysterious ale boasts aromas of tropical fruit, a playful bitter edge, and the body and mouthfeel of an American hefe. Big alcohol and rich white wheat make this unfiltered ale accessible to all types of pallets.

Cybercat (3503) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with a fairly thick pale golden-wheat head. Strong aroma is quite fruity, mainly orange with some apple and lemon, and a wheaty hint. Flavor is quite hoppy for a wheat, a little bitter, with wheaty and fruity notes, a hint of yeast. Finish has hay, malt, fruity and - whoa, now there’s the hop bitterness, like an angry bobcat scampering down your throat. Quite an item!

Very good beer! Strong hoppy taste but not over powering. Great aroma and smooth finish.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Bomber purchased locally. Poured into a tulip pint. Deep hazy orange, can hardly see through the glass. Thick 1 inch puffy white head, looks like alot of carbonation, but surprisingly not. Lots of sweet citrus in the nose and palate. Hoppy resin bitterness on the back end. Pretty interesting brew.

Pours deep hazed gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes soapily. Passion fruit, pineapple and grapefruit aromas. Thick with sweet caramel and wheat upfront turning quickly tropical fruits and resin before the bitter grapefruit pith finish.

nsquishee (615) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Very smooth, citrusy dIPA combined with a sweet wheat beer. The best part is that the IPA dominates over the wheat: the sweet wheat balances the aggressive citrusy hops. Very nice and smooth sipper. A sleeper of double - it drinks like a smooth IPA.

750 ml bottle pours a dark orange color with a nice white head. Aromas of grapefruit, citurs and some light wheat in the backgound. Medium bodied, smooth, drinks like an IPA.

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Dark orange pour, a little frothy head and an aroma of passionfruit, a little banana slightly sweet. Flavor profile is definitely that of an IPA, strong creamy hops, plenty of starfruit, interesting sweet woody aftertaste. Not like a wheat ale at all, but still tasty and worth the $9 for the bomber.

portableparty (1956) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours hazy orange with a large sudsy off white head that slowly settles to a soapy film and lacing. Aroma has a sweet malt and piny hop scent with bread/biscuit and subtle spice. Taste is bitter and bready with a nice spice. The hops are resinous piny and fruity with the malt being sweet/caramel and rounds off with biscuit and butter and a little spice all around. Palate is full slick and sticky with a warming dry finish. Pretty tasty! I enjoy these beers that are to the extreme of there so called style and not just called an American Strong Ale.

ellolovey (469) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus rinds and pine hops. Wheat and grass with some pineapple. Taste citrus and pine hops. Sweet malt backbone. Pineapple and wheat are subtle throughout. Sticky on the palate. Medium bodied. Slightly dry bitter finish with a a sweet lingering aftertaste. Definitely made interesting by all the different characteristics.
