Tap at devils advocate. Pint glass. Small white head and gold color. Smell is subtle. Kinda yeasty , then some sweet and sour balance. Sugary. Some citrus. A lot of body. Finish is a little flat. But still a good beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was served in a snifter from a 22oz bomber, the nose has very strong grapfruit notes with a very slight grassy smell. as for taste it again overpowers with the grapefruit note (likely due to the chinook hop) but despite its almost 9% abv it has a light feel and is easy to drink. overall i would recommend to anyone

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma is grapefruity, piney, doughy, perfumy. Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick off-white pillowy head with excellent retention; leaves some lace. Taste is pretty standard for style. Starts out sweet and finishes with a lingering bitterness; bit of an alcohol burn in the finish. Doesn’t taste experimental. Good but average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber with best by date in 12 days (3/13/14) - I honor this concoction by pouring it into my Duvel tulip glass. Nose is pine, citrus and floral. Malty and balanced, but I bet it would be a lot better if fresher. A little boozy and grapefruity. Not the hop explosion label advertises. ABV on bottle states 9.3%

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Starts with a big blast of grapefruit hops, pours a clear amber with a large white head. This is a hop monster, lots of citrus, a touch of pine, and just the smallest hint of malt. Long lingering bitter finish, and a really good beer at the $6 a bomber price point.
