Surprised I haven’t rated this yet. 22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Co-Op. Piney and light spicy hop aromas with some very sweet candy sugar aromas present, too. Not sure if I like the aroma in this guy. Too sweet. Transparent dark golden body with a nice off-white head that leaves pretty good lacing, Has a piney, herbal, peppery hoppiness to start that’s almost astringent. This has a very nice sweetened malt backbone before it finishes with a lightly dry, bitter, hoppy flavoring. More pine flavors late. This is very well-balanced and pretty tasty stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Bomber poured into a tulip. Clear copper-orange in color. Decent sized off-white head that leaves a nice lace. Piney pineapple hops and touch of malt sweetness. Bitter hoppy flavor with toasty, roasty malts. Lengthy bitter, drying finish. Tasty. Tried again with consistent notes.

[Bottle] from Cloudskipper. Thanks Chris! Pours a clear golden honey color with a smallish white head with little lacing. Aroma is a bit of citric and piney hops, a touch of oxidation, and some crackery malt. Flavor is very hop forward, but the malt is definitely there and adds a bit of metallic flavor. Finish is moderately bitter and quite dry.

Another big thanks to cloudskipper for this brew. Huge, wonderful hop nose with just about everything you’d want in a IPA. Flavor is pretty sexy, but not quite as good. A very solid IPA.

The smell is caramel, hops, pine, citrus, and pine neddles. The look is clear, good beige head, and a golden in color. The taste is a nice bitterness, caramel, pine, and citrus.
