3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a golden color with just a thin white head on top that sheds minimal lacing. Biscuits, grassy hop aroma, with a dash of grapefruit and toast. The flavor shows wet grass, leafy, and herbal hops. Notes of toasted grain join in with plenty of bready/biscuit malt and just a touch of lemon. Some sticky sweetness but that’s countered by a dry, sharp bitter finish. Definitely fresh. Solid stuff.

Nice citrus, piney, grassy hop flavor with a slightly sweet bready malt. It's all fairly subdued but you can tell the freshness of the wet hops. The hops also come through in the mouthfeel giving it a smooth slickness. It's the best feature of the beer. If this had more assertive hop flavor and bitterness it would be great.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the Davis Co-Op (CA). Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is citrus zest, almost, with earthiness. Full bodied til the carb leaves. It’s very hoppy. Very zesty. Orange. So strong that burnt rubber comes to mind. Why? Don’t know. It’s not all that bitter compared to the hugest NW IPAs, but it does not lack flavor and bitterness. I cannot recall a fresh hop beer that is so striking as this. It just bowls me over. Brilliant effing ale.

Strong aroma of pils and urine. Literally like a skunky miller. Taste is better but very light malt. Almost adjunct. Not pleasant. Moderate hop flavor but not pleasant.
