A bit of hops in the aroma. Looks nice. This isn’t too balanced at all. The hops are bitter but also metallic. Disappointed with this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured orange with a white head. The nose consisted of herbs, reefer, floral, hops, and vegetables. A very earthy, vegetable-like IPA. The hops weren’t resinous or alpha-ish bitter. Just earthy, spicy and floral. Some biscuit grains and malts to create a subtle sweetness. With a dry, earthy, grassy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Hop City, Atlanta. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Full Sail’s IPAs. They’ve always struck me as competent but slightly deficient in character and complexity. This one, however, I kind of dug. Modest hazy gold pour, with a medium, creamy head. Nose was far less "aggressive" than the commerical description suggested. Clean, fruity, and dry, almost like a nice pils. Medium dry mouthfeel enhanced that impression. Flavor was more conventionally IPA-ish in its hop profile, but it still had something of the earthy bitterness in the finish that faintly recalled Stone 14.

Hazed orange-amber with a medium tan head. Aroma of orange, citrus, grains, orange rind, pale malt and mild sulfur. Taste is tropical with orange, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and mild floral hops. Moderate lasting bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grapefruit and lemon peel bouquet. Clear golden, medium yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but with the hops less prevalent and with a light maltiness to balance it out. Not bitter and barely an IPA, but pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours hazy light orange, kinda like the label actually! fair white head. Nose is sweet fruity hops, kinda like fruit cocktail. Flavor is assertive hop bitterness, cantalope, and grass, and some rubbing alcohol notes. Medium chewy body. Linger earthy bitter finish. Decent, especially for a fair price.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. Clear burnt orange with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is dirty butterscotch, lemon, resin, wood, and fresh apple. Flavor is soapy butterscotch, cabbage, dirty lemon and pine sawdust. Near medium body is a bit too fizzy, but well-balanced and lightly tingly. OK traditional, British-tasting IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, bitter hops, spicy hops, and less toastiness. Good IPA, but I think I prefer some of their other IPAs (Elevation and Hop Pursuit).
