From bomber. Pours a clear rich golden color with a small white head and tons of clinging and lacing. Piney resin-y hops, peach, biscuit , and soap on the nose. Taste had a little too much soapiness for me to fully enjoy, which is too bad because I thought the pine/peach contrast was unique. The mouthfeel is nice on this one, sweet, good carbonation, smooth citrus/resin finish.

Really enjoyed this one.
Super piney aroma to me. Good sour orange aftertaste.
Really like this one, just sad my glass is almost empty and the next one will be bought next time I visit the US.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I enjoyed this quality beer poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass. The beer had a rich aroma of citrus, spices, pine, and a bit of clove and some grassy notes. It was a clear, light amber-gold color with a big foamy white head that had good retention and a lot of cling and lacing. Its taste had a good bitter graininess, with a presence of alcohol, and a touch of sour citrus flavor; it was not sweet. The beer had a thick mouthfeel and was very fizzy with good carbonation. It was a very dry beer, strong, and best for sipping.

22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Bottle on date 1/5/12 (95 days ago)
Aroma: oranges, peaches, bubblegum, lemon, lime, hint of grapefruit
Appearance: Very clear pout and 1 finger frothy off-white head that faded slowly.
Taste: medium sweet, mild sour, medium bitter
Palate: medium body, thin texture, slick. lively carbonation. mildy bitter, sweet, and slighy sour finish. Very light and crisp. Refreshing.
Overall: I like this. More aroma and flavor than Union Jack. Less bitter as well. Surprised at the 9.5%, would guess closer to 7.5 to 8%. This beer is very well balanced without being too sweet nor too bitter. Will pick this up again and try to get a fresher bottle.

Pours with a citrus aroma. Dense gold color. The malts are apparent after an initial bitterness. Finishes smooth. The big alcohol content is apparent throughout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Acquired a bomber at mile high wine & spirits in Lakewood , CO.
Poured into a goblet glass . First impression is the smell- this beer smells like a hoppy pack of juicy fruit!!!! Beautiful golden yellow hue that is really intriguing . First sips remind me of a west coast styled double IPA that is very one dimensional . It has very nice balance between grapefruit & pine but not much else. Good for a Pliny lover in need of a good IIPA but no substitute .

Bomber and on tap. Great Double India Pale Ale. A smooth, well balanced big brew. Lots of grapefruit and pine smoothed out with the sweet caramel. Long bitter finish with a touch of alcohol burn. Tasty.

On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a clear orange-old. Caramel and a touch of biscuit with moderate pine bitterness. Honestly, a bit one-dimensional. I was expecting a lot more. Solid but pretty forgettable.
