Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Extremely hoppy in the nose, which makes for a great introduction to an IPA. Taste is very bitter and hoppy, just like an IPA should be. Great brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick off-white head. Great head retention.
Has a very citrusy hop aroma along with a little bit of dankness. A little bit of caramel and biscuit malt as well.
Taste is a great balance between malt and hops. Great earthy citrus quickly followed by biscuit and toasted malt. No one flavor really overpowers the other and the balance is really outstanding. Bitterness is high and it leads to a crisp, clean finish. Nice full mouthfeel.
I am really impressed by this beer. It is not a humungous hop bomb but more of a balanced IPA. Would like to have again sometime.

Not a bad ipa at least this batch very bitter on back of tongue not to much for a hop head but probably for others. Pretty pleasant good head

Draught. Orange with white head with coating lacing. Full fruity aroma. Flavour is midway between an IPA and a Cape Ale. Very good and satisfying. Seek this out.

750 ml - Good India Pale Ale, had the required hoppy nose and malt. Good but not remarkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty, hoppy, tasty. Lots of toffee, caramel and chalky cocoa in the malts. Rich, green and earthy hops. Lots of hop flavors; not biting or bitter. Light grass, flowers and sappy pine. Balanced. Stylistically, not in line with your typical IPA, but it’s still a delicious beer.

Really hoppy. I like the name and the beer. Carpet funky burlap hopped brew with Lots of maltiness to keep it balanced but the hops win. Its good stuff.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours copper amber wth a foamy/creamy 4 finger beige head. Mixed fruit hop aromas over a caramel backbone. Med + body. Flavor is sort of mildly cooked caramel covered by a huge amount of hop. No harsh NW thing here. It’s mixed fruits and florals, with maybe a bit of pine. A fruity ale rather than a resin ale. Quite delicious.
