Release 27 9.4% ABV. Orange tinged honey color complements a layering of hops flavor. Citrus competes with resin while malt flavor exceeds sweetness resulting in a fairly complex beer with racy bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages for Less in Santee, CA. Faint print: Release 26/9.5%. Pours translucent gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fresh fruit and citrus. Med body, about. Flavor is very bitter. Grapefruit rind. Could also be floral and resin. It’s mouth smashing hoppy. Mild hop burn which builds with time. Heat’s not an issue, but you can find it. Pretty strong flavors.

Out of a bomber, release 22. Aroma is floral, citrus, and a tiny sugary sweet scent. Flavor is floral, citrus, grapefruit, and a nice English malt also. Very nice and bitter!! Very good, I just recommend you get this the freshest you can, I’ve had an old bottle and its was not very good.

Draft at uber. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Lots of sheeting lace. Rich pine and darkly toasted caramel nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and heavily resinous pine on the mid palate. Loooong resiny finish, almost shampoo like.

Cooper’s blind tasting: Golden tan, decent head. Reserved hop nose. Nice pineapply bursts. The body however is tannic, off-note hops, and fusels. Disappointing and out of control.
