Awesome APA. The balance of hop to malt flavors is great. It has lots of that citrusy, hop taste without the strong bitterness one associates with IPAs. Plus, the malt notes are really quite flavorful and leave a slight creamy smoothness on the finish. I could drink this every day...

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 This is almost an IPA in the flavor and the amount of hop aroma & taste it has. Great beer.

Bottled. Smell of a lot of hops, pine, grass. Pours golden with a nice head that last. Taste hops, citrus, pine and grass. This beer is a nice mellow hoppy beer if you want something that has favor but is still easy to drink.

Old notes from October.
Month old bottle poured into a snifter
This is my first experience with a wet hop brew so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The aroma is nice and bright although I assumed a beer of this style would have a massive hop aroma similar to opening a bag of hops on brew day. The label says grassy and citrusy and I definitely get both with the grassy being more upfront. The taste is super clean and easy to drink with little to no bitter aftertaste. This would make a great summer beer which fortunately, or unfortunately, lasts year round down in Florida.

Bomber bottled on 10/5, consumed 3/29. Would love to try one fresh. Aroma was grass, lemon, grapefruit and bread. Flavor was very similar but completely muted because of the age. Almost no carbonation. I’ll rate this again if/when I get a fresher example
