3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy slightly dirty gold - like green tea - with a slight creamy/bubbly whiteish head. Aroma is something like citrus combined with asparagus. With maybe some basil tossed in the mix. Passing strange stuff. Med body. I honest to gosh think this is a mix of basil and some standard citrus hop. Lots of basil. Well itís damn drinkable, and Iím thinking itíd go well with something Italian. Itís bitter in the finish, and itís certainly easy to drink. Course I think you gotta be really fond of basil to get into this. I had basil/tomato dressing on my lunch today, Iíve got basil in the kitchen window, so basil is on my mind!

Bomber poured a hazy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, coriander,wheat and lemon. Palate was light to medium odied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of sage, coriander, wheat and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering spiced finish. Even less Hoppy than Boulevards version. Why do they call this a White IPA???

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The other half of the collaboration tasted laterally. This was closer to the style, with a pronounced dryness. Significant coriander, white pepper. More perceived bitterness, with a mild hop aroma. Likely better consumed with food, I thought the drinkability was fine but limited. Slightly hazy whitish coloured body.Thanks again, Tom.
