Thanks to OrlGamecock for sharing the bottle. Pretty standard IPA. Nothing offensive about it. Lots of piney hops. Decent enough.

Poured a opaque dark amber hue with a white head, great lace and retention to it. Aroma had strong hop notes. A nice mix citrus, pine and even a floral note to it. Flavor was nice and hoppy, but lacked any significant caramel malts. Alcohol seemed well hidden. Finish was dry. A good 2IPA.

courtesy of stawn, thanks! great, very floral aroma. taste is good, a lil simple, but well done and very enjoyable. the nose is a lil better in terms of balance and floral nots, the taste is slightly more simple. another great west coast iipa, worth a try.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright clear copper under a large frothy beige head that slowly receded leaving thick heavy lacing. The nose is bright and citrusy with a little bit of resin. Minimal malt pushing through all these hops. The flavor is quite bitter with some juicy grapefruit notes. It’s almost so heavy on the grapefruit that it makes you pucker. The malt comes out a bit more on the finish with heavy caramel and toasty notes. Medium bodied with a touch of resiny stickiness. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice IPA.

Nice head and lacing, dark amber and verl slightly cloudy, lots of resinous and aromatic hops but just short of too much, tastes of plums and dried fruits. Quite Good on tap at Mad Mex

On firkin at Teresa’s. Poured orange with eggshell white head that left sheets of lacing. Floral nose. Flavor is of light citrus fruit. Grassy. Not overwhelmingly bitter like most IIPAs. Crisp and drinkable. ABV not noticeable. Worth looking into if it comes your way.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2010
Clear golden with a medium off white head. Loads of hops in the nose along with grapefruits and malty hints. Massive amount of hops in the flavour with notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine and hints of pale malt. Finished very bitter and dry. Nice.

jkwood04 (3422) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 15, 2010
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours bright amber/orange with a thin, lingering head. Aroma of citrus hops, but sort of weak. Flavor full of hoppy bitterness. Sort of abrupt finish, and average body. Not bad.

22oz. Bomber. Pours a coppery orange with a small layer of white bubbles. Definitely a big west coast IIPA with a nose of solid pine needles. Flavor is all about the hops with a big pine flavor hitting hard early followed by a sharp, dry and grapefruity bitterness. Carbonation is lively and the texture is oily and resinous like most beers in this style. The bitterness just sits on the tongue and lingers. This reminds me of the early IIPAs with pine dominating and the bitterness being a bit too harsh and unbalanced. While still enjoyable, I tend to prefer beers in this style with a bigger citrus nose and more hop flavor to accompany the bitterness. Not bad, but considering the plethora of outstanding beers in this category, I’m not sure I’d pick this one up again.

Bomber pours a cloudy copper with a off white head and lacing. Grapefruit and pine in the nose. Taste is very dry and grapefruit bitter. Hops shine here!
