Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Go Fred! Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Lots of hop. Resin, floral, citrus. Med body. Flavor is very hoppy. Citrus, resin and I think floral. It’s bitter as all get out. Oh, there’s some light roast caramel backbone. But if you don’t look for it, it may not stand up. This finishes NW dry and bitter, but not quite so harsh as many. Extremely nice!
