4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer has a clear amber color with a large off-white head and smells like pure hops: resin, floral, and grass. Although the scent isn’t too overpowering, the taste hits you hard with a heavy bitterness with a mild sweetness, but these two flavors blend extremely well, leaving you wanting more. Also, the palate very nicely complements the flavor with the thin texture, light body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter but definitely long finish. This beer is definitely great and light despite a nice large flavor. Very well done.

Bomber->SA. Clear bright copper with big frothy offwhite head. Aroma and taste a strong pine and citrus hops over malt. Somewhat watery. Lingering bitterness. Taste is a bit off-putting. OK, but disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big citrusy hop aroma. Dark golden amber with lacy white fine head. Nice, if somewhat subdued citrus flavor. Smooth, slightly acidic finish with no real bitterness. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper with a thick off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is like the bottle says: grassy and bright. Also features some citrus and caramel malt notes. Taste is grassy and citrusy but malt seems breadier than in the nose. Slight metallic twinge. Palate is full body and prickly carb, disappears quickly from the mouth. Has potential but a little off.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pour. Orange amber color with a light white head. The aroma is of wet hop, quite mild. The taste is smooth and hoppy; not very full bodied, finishes dry. Overall the beer is quite hoppy, but manageable.

draft at JK O’Donnell’s in Fort Wayne - as good, if not better than their Hercules IPA. Fantastic taste from start to finish. Outstanding IPA

Charlie's redondo beach in tap. Pours nice, foamy head, stays with it. Dark golden color, caramel. Not much to aroma, a bit of pine. Easy drinking, nice on the palate. A good but not great beer. Would order it again.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2014 Bomber. Orange-brown with a nice white head. Fresh hops and caramel malt. True to style and simple. I’d like to see the hops dialed up even more.Get it fresh or forget it.
