Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy 3 finger off-white head. Aromas of roast caramel and resin. Med body. Flavor is harsh roast malt with some resin, and arguably a bit of citrus. It’s hard to decide: resin or citrus. Seems like both. Definitely bitter, and with time it seems a bit floral. This is an incredibly delicious beer. Just excellent.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a vibrant orange color with a big head that is just slightly off-white.
S: An incredibly dank hop aroma to this beer. Big citrus and pine notes with a slight herbal quality to it. A mild malt sweetness consisting primarily of bread.
T: The flavor is somewhat sweet and does not have quite as big of a hop punch as the nose. Some citrus and fruit hop notes and a solid pine character which gives the beer a strong bitterness.
M: Medium in body body and carbonation.
O: Good but not great, unfortunately. With some fine tuning, though, I think this one has potential.

Growler… Hazy orange ale with a small, white head. Fruity, floral aroma – pineapple, mango and peach stand out. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Heavily bitter and fruity. Finishes crisply and heavily bitter. Kudos to DuffManSW for floating the growler my way!

Golden/orange pour. Resin, grapefruit peel, and floral hops on the nose. Flavor is malty enough but has some really good citrus hops. Finishes a bit bitter with almost a yeasty flavor.
