Bomber to tulip. Pours surprisingly light yellow for an IPA; small white head. Nose is funky and somewhat foul at first, with citrus. Flavor is citrusy and not much malt. Light-bodied. Overall decent but certainly not great.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Bright yellow orange pour. White head. A unique and amazing IPA. Zesty tropical and floral aroma. Mild hops. Slight bitterness. Just as easy to drink and good as any IPA I could imagine

Pours a hazy straw color with white head. Wonderful beer. Big time hop flavors - fresh cut grass backed up by grapefruit and just a hint of resin. Perfect balance with bitterness checked by caramel and doughy malts.

Everything about this beer Is great. Love the Amarillo hopps. This one is perfectly balanced and tastes hoppy and bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
