Bottle at a tasting at James’s place. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big bright citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, spicy hops, a bit of malt and wheat. Crisp and warming, very nice. Finishes up with warm spiciness, lingering grapefruit and a nice pithy bitterness.

Bottles pours a nice bright yellow, a little cloudy, aroma is a nice fruity and hops. The flavour is very well balanced, Lots of bitterness and lots of flavour, very nice offer, this is more like DIPA and the beer this most reminds me of the pliny and its dang close, nice offering. hope this isnt a one off.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Premier Gourmet. Pours an inviting golden hue with an oily cream colored head. Lacing coats the side of my snifter. Sweet on the nose with a mix of tropical fruit. Body starts sweet and is quickly overwhelmed by a barrage of tropical goodness. Put on your horned helm for protection Gandry.. Mango, Pineapple, Grapefruit abound. Body is full, but slick. Bitterness is solid but not over powering. This beer is perfect, I need to HEADY to the store and get more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber sent to me in trade by UDBEERNUT (I suggest you change your avatar name to all CAPS). A Bee-you-ti-full glowing golden with enchanting lacing. Thicker white oily head. Yes, this critter is shaping up. Strong nose of piney hops with a sturdy honey undertone. Sloping tight lacing yields to lovely abstract lacing as beer quaffs on thru to my gullet. Upfront sweet tones equalize and do not entirely dominate the bold body. Numerous rails of intense hop of vying dominance assail the senses. 8.5% YMBM! I need to sit down, oh yeah, I am. Props Art!
