Bomber. Pours clear dark amber with a 2 finger light tan head that leaves great lacing. The nose is ripe citrus and malt. The taste is citrus, caramel and light pine in the finish that lingers a bit. Medium bodied. Not as citrusy as the aroma suggests, but itís a nice drinkable IPA.

Bomber poured into pint glass. Nice aroma with good head and lacing on glass. The taste is smooth with some crisp hop, but not hugely bitter (which I like the bitter). Coating texture on tongue. Very easy to drink and worth the 5.49 price.

Bottle from The Beer Authority, poured a clear orange color with a big foamy head. Citrus hop aroma. Smooth body without a big malt character followed by a bitter punch. Flavor, abv and body are right in my wheel house. Iíll ride the chair again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from Growler into snifter.
Pours a beautiful red copper with a creamy white head that lasts. This is a beautiful looking beer, top notch. Smells like fresh hops, a little spicy but mostly citrusy. This beer tastes great, it doesnít overwhelm you with hops but you definitely know there are plenty. A slight tangy flavor that develops in a lasting bitterness. The body is light and crisp. I could and will drink this beer all evening long. Iím hoping this stuff with last on the shelves as well as on the taps because I look forward to enjoying this beer for sometime.

Glorious color - medium amber that radiates light well with off-white head. The amber is such an appetizing color.
Aroma is a delight of black Ceylon tea aromas, metallic hops, biscuits, and faint citrus.
On the palate the tea flavors resume with toasty/biscuity malt that tries to hold up to the metallic, piney hops. The pine carries through to the finish.
One of my favorite hoppy beers now because I love the ones that bring in some of the tea aromas/flavors with the hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper color with a thick, off-white head. Nose is really, really nice - citrus hop backbone, with a honey-caramel malt counter. This would be a fantastic summer brew - mild but still flavorful, with enough hops to make it refreshing and no more than just enough malts to balance it out. Lively carbonation, and the flavor lingers for a while. Slighly oily (or even watery) mouthfeel - thatís certainly not its strongpoint - and it doesnít "wow" you in any way, but itís extremely drinkable and entirely satisfying.
