3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber thanks to MrBunn. Pours a thick viscous orange juice consistency. Aroma is not real strong, but is there in small bits of pine and citrus. Taste is pretty good, heavy on the malt and some decent hops and pine resin flavor. Smooth drinking. More like an IPA than a double. I could drink more than one of these as I near the end of the glass.
The label wins it for me....very cool.

Draft sample at Dayton AleFest ’09. I was expecting more from a DIPA. The aroma and flavor is quite subdued. Flavor is sweet and citrusy. It is quite balanced and the ABV is hidden, but it’s just an average IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz: pale yellow with mild white head and moderate carbonation. spicy and floral nose. flavor with some hop bitterness and a lot of nice hop flavor, of herbal and spicy and floral notes. problem is in the lack of malt flavor, there is some residual sweetness, but not much character flavor. am interesting double ipa, not great, but worth drinking

bottle courtesy of miketd, thanks so much! slightly murky pour looks as unclean as the waters of lake erie itself. aroma is of an old timey box of soap flakes and ’spring fresh’ fabric softener. there is a very pleasant freshness and crispness to this beer. very tart and dry style, not my fave, but pretty darn good. has a mild malt sweetness that balances it out nicely.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber (fresh from Great Lakes today). Pours a light orange with a dense head and aromas of citrus (oranges and lemons), grass and a little honey. Flavor is very good... there is enough hops and alcohol to balance against the sweet malt and keep this from heading toward cloying. That said, it does have considerable honey sweetness, a creamy flavor and texture and a nice alcohol bite to it. Finishes with alcoholic warmth and citrusy hops. Very pleasant. (Oh... and props for the new label... it is really cool.)

Strong grapefruit and cream aromas. Opaque orange color. Bitter citrus and orange peel. Creamed malt and some cheese. Rich and sweet on the palate with a sweet duration. Good.

Shared with my uncle on the 4th of july. He really liked it and was surprised that it was made in Ohio where he lives. Poured amber with a white head. Good aroma of pine. Citrus flavor with a hint of caramel.

Growler shared by JaBier: Very aromatic hop blast of citrus. Flavor is very clean and bitter. Well balanced and exactly what it should be. Awesome.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
660 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a big, creamy off-white head. Aroma is mainly hops, but not very intense. Flavor is sweet malt, balanced bitter, some pine. This IPA is quite sweet and not very bitter, still quite balanced and kind. Medium body and a long (mild) bitter finish. I like it.
