UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bomber. Cloudy copper color with frothy white head. Citrus and grapefruit all over the aroma. A little bit of alcohol fumes when you get to the bottom. Flavor is well balanced. Obvious abundance of citrus hops and a firm malt back. Nice, mild bitterness hangs on in the aftertaste. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Hazy orange-amber with big lasting head and sticky lace. Moderate nose friendly hop nose. Flavour has a solid malt base which gives it a bit of a syrupy note to the body. Flavour starts out fairly woody but citrus notes emerge and grow to hang from the trees. Pretty decent if a little heavy.
