Bomber I picked up on an East Coast trip. Clear golden with a smallish off white head. I smell cracker malts and little else. First sip is sticky sugary and the beer is a bit fizzy. Only a little pine and fruit. Not really all that much going on here. Crackers and graham crackers with some indistinct fruit. Kind of a disappointment, actually. However, I am sure this beer was a hit in 1993 and shows how far we have come.

It wasn’t bad, but not particularly memorable, either. Fairly typical IPA. Had with lunch at Fire + Ice restaurant in Cambridge, MA.

On tap at Beer Authority New York September. This is a good all round beer with a cream foam cap and vibrant orange colour. Floral hop aromas are pleasing as is the flavour.
