Bomber from Douglas and the SLC crew when I met them at Squatters. The nose of deliciously fruity hops burst out at me as I opened the cap, producing mangos, vanilla wafers, with hints of pineapple and grapefruit. Orange with lots of small stringy floaties and a large cream head. Flavor is lightly bitter with lots of fruity notes. AFAIC absolutely fantastic.

Big thanks to douglas88 for this one. 22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body supporting a light tan head off foam. The aroma has a pleasing level of dank hoppiness, spicy hops and a bit of citrus mixing with sweet malts around the edges. The taste has a nice rich bitter and flavor hop profile coming from just yummy dank hop earthiness, spicy hops and a bit of lemon lime. In between those notes is a sliver of malt like sweetness. This is really nice and is hitting the spot with its plethora of hoppy goodness.

Bomber. Poured clear light-medium orange with a dense, well-retained eggshell head. The aroma picked up fresh pine, black pepper, and grapefruit over biscuity malts.. fresh and engaging. The flavor found similar stuff.. pine and black pepper bitterness plus touches of dried grass over biscuity and lesser caramel malts.. residual citrus and peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. a little grainy for my liking, and it was almost watery at one point on the middle. Overall this was a very good brew that I’d drink more of (if it was available).

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. There is bready malts with a hint of caramel. The hops are pine, spicy, citrus, resin. The resin and bitterness from the hops hinders the drinkability of the beer. Very well made, well done Scott.
