4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(22oz botle from jc). Pours slightly hazy copper wih 2 finger off-white head. Very active carbonation. Aroma has some must, juicy grapefruit, some pine/wood. Excellent! Taste is sweet malts with some wood notes and bitterness on the end. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation on the tongue. Finish is bitter, but the malt balances this beer out. Really good beer and drinks easily.

Bottle. Pours amber with a think white head. Aroma of floral, pine, and citrus hops. Nice balance and sweetness against the hops. ABV well hidden. Slight oil/stickyness. Good brew though. I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. bottle. Pours a nice clear, amber/orange color with an inch worth of white, thick, foamy head. Appears very lively with all of the tiny bubbles. Aroma is very much floral and piney hops with a nice sweetness to it. Taste is really good. A nice balance of grassy, earthy hops with a very good bitter bite at the end. Pretty sticky feel to it. Not overbearing, but a definite stickiness. Overall pretty good, I could drink this on the regular.

Excellent, almost a double IPA taste. Very refreshing strong aroma of grape fruit. I wish we could get this in the Chicago suburbs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy stray golden with a frothy white head. Killer of fresh grassy citric hops.Something sunny about the aroma that I love. Full and fruity with a rich body to balance the bitter dry hoppy finish. Hops are super balanced, it makes this dangerously drinkable. Mouthfeel is both wickedly full and delightful spicy. I like daisy cutter, but I like this more.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the brewpub. Pours a nice soft golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is super fresh citric tropical fruit hops, deliciously oily with all the fruitiness and a touch of pine, very floral and grassy. Flavor also presents a lot of tropical fruit, very rich and fresh hops with a nice sweet caramel maltiness in the background. A softly bitter finish that isn’t too overpowering to kill the amazing hop presentation. Medium body and a sharper carbonation. Excellent beer!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting. Colour... cloudy gold and probably would’ve had a frothy head but I just had a wee bit. Nose... holy hares that’s one hoppy rabbit!! Palate... a burst of grapefruity hops and canes sugar up front but then not much follow through. Seems like it delivered its strike at the front and left nothing much else! Perhaps a bigger pour would’ve been better, but it was one 22 oz. for 16 people!
