COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New for 2011, this Imperial IPA’s full malt body is elevated by the loads of hop flavor and bitterness. Copious amounts of Citra, Chinook, Columbus, Cascade and Centennial hops are used to give this beer a wonderful aroma of orange zest and lemon. This fruitiness from the hops is complimented by a nice caramel biscuit malt flavor from the pale and crystal malts and finishes balanced with a slight hop kick. This beer was dry hopped for your enjoyment. Available in 22oz Bottles and Draught ABV 7.5% IBUs: 80

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a creamy, bubbly near-white head. Aromas of fruit and floral - definitely some citrus. Med body. Flavor is light stone fruit, grapefruit rind, floral, and maybe, just maybe, a hint of malt. It’s that good. Yummy.
