Pours amber with a thin white head and nice citrusy smells on the nose. Massive hop flavor on the tongue. Again then citrusy notes were well expressed. This beer lingers so long it’s as if your tongue has been placed in a vat of hops for 3 weeks. It’s not a subtle beer but then again it does come from California.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Snojerk321, poured into a tulip. Pours a deep amber/caramel brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is initially of piney resinous hops, pineapple, and grapefruit. As the beer warms, more of the sweet caramel malt comes to the front. Taste is bitter, with a lot of deep rich caramel sweetness - the balance is more in favor of sweet than bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation. Very nice IPA, but a little sweet and rich for me, I tend to like my IPA’s a bit more crisp and hop-forward.

Bottled, definitely a little bit old. However this was quite good, if it tastes this good when its old I would like to try this one fresh. It has a nice aroma, very citrusy, definitely the noticeable hop is the cascade, it is quite a nice mix of the hops and malt. Recommend a taste of this one

22 oz Bomber. Pours out an orange / yellow color. Fruity smelling with floral notes. Taste is sweet and smooth. Bitterness is there, but not overwhelming. Has some interesting tastes that I cant really pinpoint, but it makes it unique, which isnt a bad thing in this case. Decent, drinkable beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Burnt orange colored in appearance with a half-inch of white head. The aroma is predominantly hops resin and caramel with a little bit of candied oranges in the background. The taste begins with strong earthy, herbal hops bitterness and grapefruit citrus flavors followed by toasted malt, tangerine and caramel. The finish is bitter and citrusy while the alcohol is fairly subtle. This is one seriously bitter and hoppy brew that more than delivers in the hops department. Another solid San Diego style DIPA.
