Wow. I get back from vacation, sit at my cube in the cube farm and it takes me about five minutes to notice a package cleverly hidden by the beer gnome. Not only does the package contain this bomber, but an empty from some homebrew I left out for the Beer Gnome a few months back. So, thusly, three cheers for the Beer Gnome! Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah! Nose of pink grapefruit and first taste too. Very light toffee head that settles and remains a thin film of fizziness. Mody is thin but not watery. It leads to the mellow mouthfeel and lends to the overall "lightness of being" Peary sweetness simultaneously balances this light crisp critter. A fantastic brew.

The Dan journal #389. Tasted 8/5/10. 22oz bomber. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Webbed off-white head. Aromas of subtle oranges and herbal grassy hops. Medium bodied and rather astringent. Good bitterness with a bright effervescence and a dry finish. Flavors of citrus fruit, especially oranges and grapefruit. Bitter finish and mildly sticky. Very well crafted and drinkable!

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Dry leafy aroma, bright clear copper, thick creamy white head. Strong cantaloupe character and biscuit malt, juicy and dense, some apricot tartness and an earthy weight. Interesting mesh of flavors, I dig it.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Standard pale orange appearance, nice head, fairly clear. Aroma was a change, as non-standard IPA hops were used - big aroma of bitter hops, but instead of the classic C notes, there were lots of floral and earth components. Flavor matched - just enough malt to hold things together in a beer that focused on an unusual hop profile. Interesting, although not my all time favorite. As it warmed, anise and orange marmalade notes came through as well. Bonus points for originality.

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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

Rusty (1533) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours a vibrant oily orange with a nice looking small white soapy head. Aroma is grass, oily hops, malt and very clean. Flavor is bitter grassy fresh hops, malt, citrus, well balanced and lots of hop oils. Zeus and Williamette are not my favorite hops, but they work well in this beer and itís a pretty nice IPA.

Bomber from the CBX. Pours a cloudy bright orange with a white head. The aroma is not super strong like I prefer my IPAís, but it is clean and hoppy. Notes of lemons, grass and cough drops. The flavor is bright, zesty and non-aggressive. There is juicy citrus all over. Itís a refreshing IPA and a little different than what Iíd expect from a west coast brewer.
