Transparent straw pour with very active carbonation. Aroma is somewhat light but piney with hints of apricot and citrus. Flavor is resinous pine, grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Off-dry finish.

This is a pretty solid fresh hop ale, but its potency and freshness can’t compare to Stone’s or even Sierra Nevada’s offerings. Still, well-balanced, bright and clean taste.

Drinking thus after a CD Galactica, it seems almost like a light ipa! It features fresh Amarillo hops that are really lemony, with just a hint of pine. Crisp & slightly sweet finish.

Bomber pours surprisingly light golden color with a sticky white head. Aroma is very grapefruity, but I swear there are some simcoe hops in there. Get a strong aroma of cat piss. Very light-bodied and nice to drink. No real hint of the alcohol, maybe a bit of ethyl acetate. A nice ipa.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bought at the fairly new Smokes and Suds in CDA, ID. Aroma is doughy, rubbery, sulfur, grapefruit, chalky chewable vitamins, floral. Pours an extremely pale slightly hazy golden hue with a two finger white head with nice retention; sudsy lace sheets the glass after dissipation. Taste is lightly bittersweet, with the bitterness lingering long after the swallow; lemony, bready flavors. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation for style, medium body. Not too bad, but that rubbery sulfur smell is distracting. I wonder if too much sunlight got to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A slightly hazy yellowish color with a white head. A hoppy grape aroma with flowers and some spice. Smooth but rather non descript in the flavor and palate, but it has a nice aroma and features the Amarillo hops well.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Piny and bitter off the start awaken the mouth. Mid sip banana notes with a mild punch of yeast. Finishes with a flat hop taste that blankets the tongue. Good for a glass.

It must be a seasonal release. I didn’t know at the time that this was the 2013 release. Good. On tap at the Public House.
