Nov. 16, 2012; 22 oz. "bomber." Cloudy, copper pour. Delicate lacing. Doughy, caramel aroma. Sticky sweet. Full-bodied. Nicely balanced; hop edge is rounded-off a bit by the malt. Very good - especially for a local product.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange, brownish color with a thick off white head. The aroma has caramel, earthy, bread & some pine. The taste is medium in body with a malt forward taste with a mild bitter finish. overall not my favorite flavor profile in an IPA but an OK beer.

Bottle. From Half Time beverage. Ok aroma. Nutty, earthy. Cobweb. Tad hazed brownish orange color. Good head , spotty lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Medium body. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Meh. Hoping this is a bad bottle. Otherwise its uninteresting at best. Odd aroma and flavor.

bomber from consumers beverages in niagara falls. pours hazy orange with an off white head and some huge protien floaties. faded hop aroma with papery malts. flavour is similarily stale. this probably used to be pretty good but its quite old. please date your bottles so people dont buy dead stock off the shelf.

Botle from Wegmans Johnson City. Pours brown with a thick khaki head. A bit of citrus on the tongue. Kind of a thin mouthfeel. Fair amount of grapefruit on the tongue. Has a decent amount of bitterness on the finish. Eh!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with an amber glow and a thick, four centimetre tall tan head - this is a great looking IPA! Aroma of fresh nutty and earthy hops with a bit of flowers, some malt noticeable and definitely some sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong nutty and earthy malt flavours dominate with a good floral and grassy hop flavour that isn’t quite as deep and robust as the smell indicated. Aftertaste shows a little sweetness of caramelised sugars, some light nuts and a bit of yeast - all with the faintest of hop flavours. Overall, a nice and maltier and nuttier IPA with some good flavours. Not like a West Coast IPA, but that’s pretty obvious giving a name like Cortland - but well worth trying if you like the style! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-March-2013.

Bomber pours hazy copper orange with a off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Nose is a mix of tangerine and faint grapefruit. Taste is more balanced than many of the style, but has ample bitterness. Citrus character continues. Body is light but never feels watery or weak.
