3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, release #24 at 6.4% abv. Nose is nice and hoppy, doughy citrus and enveloping caramel, even a little toffee that’s edging toward chocolate chip. Cloudy/hazy copper-brown body with a foamy, rocky beige head. Taste sweet to start with a little tartness before bitter Betty rears her ugly mug, bright but non-distinct citrus and nice, grassy herbality with doughy, lightly spicy hops underneath. A little nuttier/earthier and this qualifies as a straight-up trail mix brown; as it stands, just a pleasant association. Fullish body, even dense at times, with a little alcohol showing, and very lightly soapy. Good balance. On the whole, very nice, and kudos for releasing something slightly new under the sun!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber from douglas88. Thanks! Pours a deep reddish copper with a sticky and persistent offwhite head. Nose is resiny with some low roast and a molasses type note. On tasting, the bitterness is over the top and borderline harsh. The beer is too dry to support the level of bitterness. Resiny and some citrus but not much elegance. Brutal.

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with sweet grains, hay and a bit of grapefruit. The flavor is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, cashews and caramel. The palate is full and cilky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. Release #27, 6.6% ABV. Lots of citrusy aromas escapes the bottle as I pop the cap. The head is of moderate size, light beige in color and with some lacings. Unclear, dark golden to copper colored beer. Citrusy, mostly orangey aroma with some room left for the malts. A light caramel flavor is more or less overpowered by orangey hops and bitterness. Medium to full body with some carbonation. A bit sweet on the palate maybe, with a pleasant bitterness kicking in towards the end. A tad on the sweet side I think, but it’s a nice beer anyway. 130430

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Listed as the Lemon Drop Hop version. Sort of an orange-amber our with a dense off-white head. Strong lemon and grapefruit peel hop character. Floral, some biscuit, and a decent amount of caramel. Flavor starts off with a nice bright citrus character, but the sweetness of the malt comes to dominate. Floral, light bitterness, and some subtle pine.
