3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a clear light reddish orange with asmall light tan head. Faint sweet fruity malt aroma with classic modest citrus hop component. Lightly bitter flavor with mild maltiness as well. Slightly metallic, and then a moment later, big bready malt flavors, and then a rather sharp IBU bite at the end. A little sweet over all as well. Softly carbonated.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Bomber. Hazy, burnt orange with a lasting film of foam. Aromas of evergreen resin, caramel and light orange. Flavor of toasted nut and caramel on the front are quickly overtaken by pine resin and peppery citrus zest. Near-medium body is to the dry side, slightly astringent and smoothly carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Clear, light amber color with a very thin head. The taste is a standard pale ale and is quickly by an intensely bitter, hoppy finish. Not too shabby.

Bottle: Pours a transparent orange amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts with some fresh floral grapefruity hops. Starts with good fullness for the style with pleasant light malty sweetness well balanced with assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear gold with a short white head that persists and leaves minimal lace. Malty nose and a cotton-candy and berry sweet, medium body that lasts through. Tart and citrus in the middle and finish with strong hop aromas all through, as if dry-hopped or hop-filtered. Low carbonation, very drinkable - a session beer? A decade ago, this was an American IPA!
