Nose is fruity, flavor is floral, glue, honey, grapefruit, quinine. Medium sweet, medium hoppy bitter. Finish is quickly appearing long lasting hoppy medium to heavy bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, pink-tinged orange colour. Aroma is nice and floral. A softer taste than many IPAs, as the hibiscus comes out quite subtly.

Bomber, pours a semi clear copper amber color with an off white head. Some suspended yeast sediment. Mild aroma with a bit of hops and sweetness. Flavor is nice with a hint of funk in the finish. Great cause and a decent beer. I would definitely buy again for both reasons.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 On tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. At first I thought this was infected with Brett, but the bartender assured me it was the hibiscus. Hmmm, I’m not sure, as it wasn’t very floral, just funky and slightly fruity. Flavour was moderate bitter. Not your typical IPA. I still think this was infected. Any way, I liked it a lot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very clear orangey pink - almost pink grapefruity - with a pink/white head. Nose is hugely floral, with tangy spices and citrus. Taste is of sweet flowers, tangy pine, grapefruit, some caramel. Herbal tangy and very dry. Almost a belgian yeast presence. Medium bodied with no alcohol noticed. Finishes sweet and tangy with some bitterness. Dry. Very interesting solid effort from a brewery that continues to hit their notes. 14.3
