very well done. pours a clear orange with decent head and nice lacing. smells unique, sweetish hops, some oak? flavor is similar, with some sweetish malts balancing out the big abv and moderate hop. very well balanced for the 10.6% abv, very smooth and very very tasty! very aromatic and fruity, tropical flavors all throughout the body. finishes moderately bitter, not extremely bitter, but very satisfying. nice price as well. definitely would recommend

Poured from the bomber smells like fresh hops. Taste is chunky and hoppy (which I think were the 2 cops on sandford and son). Deschutes always does a good job with the fresh hop style, all of their beer I’ve tried taste similar, but with different characteristics. This one is strong but if not for the buzz I wouldn’t have been able to tell. Fresh squeezed on steroids, and steroids is good. You keep making beer in this style and I’ll keep buying them.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin head on a hazy medium straw body.
The aroma is a big blend of citrus (all of them) plus some pine.
The taste is bold and complex. Moderate bitterness throughout held up by a big malt.
The texture is thick.

Really nice!! Pours slightly hazy light orange with lots of foamy head that sticks around and tons of lacing. Lots of sweet citrus nose. Flavours are pineapple, peach, grapefruit, some sweet syrup. Taste medium/big bitter med/sweet. Full body, somewhat creamy with an aggressive bitter finish. Alcohol is there, but reasonably well hidden.

Bomber. Melon and grapefruit citrus hop aroma with pine resiny notes. Pours hazy golden colored with a large soapy white head and some lacing. Starts with tropical fruit flavors with subtle grapefruit citrus. Finishes dry with more of the sweet tropical fruit and slight pine resiny flavors. Nice IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle with BB date of 4/15/15. Appearance: Cloudy golden with a quickly dissipating white foam head.
Aroma: Intense citrus aroma with melon, pineapple, peach, and grapefruit.
Taste: Rich malt sweetness with slight breadiness and caramel that quickly leads to a blend of grassy and citrus flavors of orange, peach, and grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate carbonation an slight alcohol warmth.
Finish: Leaves a lingering bready malt and grapefruit flavor with slight bitterness.
Overall: Very flavorful IPA with a solid malt backbone that balances the high ABV and makes the bitterness very balanced. Drinks like a strong, fruity APA

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home- pours clear golden with off white head of foam that settles to a cm ring. Nose is super fruity, tangerines, orange and rind along with sweet biscuity carastan malts and some earthy pine as well. Resinous fruity hop notes, juicy and somewhat thick bodied and long bitter finish with some abv heat. A little off balanced but pungent for sure. Hop heads rejoice though likely not sessionable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Best By 4/7/15", 9.5% ABV. Color is hazy golden yellow with a slightly orange head of about 1/2 finger. Smell has a strong grapefruit character with some pungent earth tones. Taste is bracingly bitter, lots of citrus peel with some savory cracker and cheese. Lots of really powerful hop flavors in this one. Tread lightly!
