One of my favorite beers! Bold, hoppy flavor. Much better on draft, but still really good in a bottle. I highly recommend it!!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Bomber poured into a Stein. Nice aroma, minimal lacing and good mouth feel with tasty lingering hop bitterness! Well done.

Slight grassy, citrusy aroma. Very light and caramel-like. Copper with white head. Great thirst quencher. Very good example of British IPA albeit too strong. Nice assertive bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a nice deep clear gold body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is very light offering up spicy to grassy hoppiness and then followed by some malts and then almost a cracker sort of note. The taste is smooth and gets into a decent amount of pine hops balanced by some malt sweetness. To midway it gets a little grapefruit and tangelo like and those citrus notes only build into the finish. At the finish a thin feeling body is noticed but this doesnít really distract from the taste all that much. Pretty nice.

this beer didnít stand out at all. It was however an average iPa and was quite fresh. Citrus hops slight fruitiness and a light malt balance. Not bad but I could see a lighter iPa like this fading quickly in a bottle."

Definitely hoppy. maybe a touch out of balance on the aftertaste. Malty on the knows but hoppy on the finish. The two match all too briefly in the middle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle , golden with a good sized white head. Nose is mild, mostly malt, some mild pine aroma. Taste was somewhat balanced, body was on the thin side of medium, with a oily texture. Lively beer, with an abrupt finish. Drinkable, not too bad, but not up there with my favorite west coast IPAís.

Fresh hops bursting from the just opened bottle changed my attitude about this brew after having read a few ratings. I was not expecting much and was a little disappointed and having brought this one home. However, a hoppy and fresh floral aroma coming from the glass as I poured made all the difference in the world.
The light orange flavor and light malt backdrop makes for a nice balance and leaves just a little light bitter to linger on my tongue. Itís a nice amber in the glass with a respectable head, but nothing that waits around for you. Iím enjoying this and would consider it a possible go to if it were in my area.
