3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, earthy and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where exceeded.

Sample at the taproom. Hazy bright golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine notes, and some malt in the background. Medium to full body with a piney hops character and flavors of grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Pours clear light golden with lots of head and lacing. Nose is tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste is also nice malt with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Great.

Draft. Served in improper glassware. Still pretty rich hazelnut aroma. Dense lace. Flavors of nut brittle, hemp seed, and a whiff of guava pith. Maybe a hint of orange too. Surprisingly pithy finish. Still, an absolute winner.

Bomber on my daughters patio (Laguna Niguel) on 24th May 2015. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Hops rule the roost here, citrus, tropical fruits in the aroma a bitter bite in the taste. I couldn’t find any honey sweetness, or presence at all in either the nose or flavour. Decent though and certainly a hop forward brew. Alcohol hidden nicely by the depth of hop flavours.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Yum-o! Great looking brew with a large, durable, cream-colored, frothy, fluffy head, loads of lace, and a clear amber color. Aroma is a volatile blend of fresh hops, caramel, & biscuits. Flavor has those characteristics plus carbonic tang, malty sweetness up front, followed by a piney, grapefruity hoppy taste that has a very long finish. Excellent palate with a little alcohol warmth. Very good drinking beer. Yessir.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden orange. Head is decent. Okay lacing in a pilsner glass. Might perform better in a nonic pint. Aroma of strong grapefruit, honey, pine, grass and orange. Aroma also very floral and complex. Wow. Taste is perfectly balanced between malts and hops for a dbl. Pine, grapefruit and some floral. Subtle honey on finish creates a medium-thick mouthfeel. Finish is bittersweet. Damn, that’s good!!

On draft. Hazy orange gold with one finger head. Honey, lemon, pine aroma. More piney on the taste, but there is still honey. Pretty interesting.

Can’t recall what crap store I bought this at near Disneyland. This beer, however, isn’t crap. Sweet orange, peach and lemon, caramel and honey. Pine and more honey stuff. Mellow with a pepper bite. Just enough sweetness and a subdued tangy lingering aftertaste. orange, honey, pepper and pine, resin, caramel, multigrain crust, biscuit, more orange, more honey and more orange and honey. Stellar brew.

2/21/15 from 22 oz bomber. Pleasant enough aroma but not strong or piney. A bit out of balance on the malty side. Needs better aroma hops and less buttering.

B hazy golden. Citrus hops and alcohol in the nose. Boozy and floral and citrus. Sticky hops but alcohol seems too much for the base. Not bad but not the best.
