A nice & relatively sessionable black ipa. Huge dark roasted hop notes. Beautiful dark pour w/ a tan head & great lacing. The roasted flavor & hop kick sticks w/ u but is medium in body so it goes down easy! This is a damn good beer!

Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige head. Lots of citrus for aroma. Nearly cat pee. Med + body. There’s a whole lot of citrus for flavor with some light chocolate/dark malt support. Seems to get a bit of fruit/floral towards the finish. Finishes bitter, dryish and tasty. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a big foamy beige head that has incredible retention and ample sticky lacing. The aroma is rife with fresh citrus and some cocoa. The taste, like the aroma, features bitter oranges and grapefruit set in a chocolaty/cocoa malt base. The palate is full and smooth with just a touch of grittiness. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very tasty concoction.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, pours a murky brown with a thick light brown head, doesn’t look great, aroma is really nice to make up for it, big floral touch with some citrus, flavor has a hop front end with some chocolate and malt in the finish, a little thin in the mouthfeel, not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Black pour with a foamy off white head. Strong burnt chlorophyll flavors. Big liquorice. Medium full body. Slightly juicy. Celery hearts. Soft red fruit. Bitter vegetables. Harsh finish. Unashamedly a Black IPA though. Worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour orange hue with a beige thin head and light lacing .... Aroma of orange, heavily piney and grapefruity hops with a light roasted malt .... Taste is of piney, grapefruit and citrusy orange hops with a roasted and chocolatey malt backbone .... Has a decent bitter hop bite and light oily mouthfeel ... Decent black IPA with a lingering bitter dry roasted and hoppy bite ... Solid
