"Fairly clean and floral ipa. not bad, but definitely lacking in depth. not sure of the age, seemed relatively fresh and pretty balanced if a little light in the hop department for an ipa."

Voodoo (403) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a clear, deep golden color with a thin white head which disappears quickly......aroma is pine, citrus.......taste is bready maltiness, citrus, slight pine......not over the top but a solid drinkable IPA. Quite refreshing in these days of excesses.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange with white head. Nice tropical fruit and floral aroma. Taste is moderately bitter. Kind of thin mouthfeel for an IPA. Floral and piney bitter tastes with a little bit of orange peel. Average to above average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
