kevinator (1040) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pretty average. Mild hop aroma. Copper and golden color with a white head. Medium to light palate with big carbonation. Medium to mild hop bitterness up front with an decent malt background. Would I choose their over a bland beer? Of course, but this is still a middle-of-the-road beer.

Bought bomber for $4.99. Itís a little better on tap but itís close. Good representation of an English style IPA and a nice change of pace. Malty, mild hop aroma and bitterness. Definitely can be a session ale. Goes well with savory comfort foods. Not as staple in my fridge but itís good value when itís on sale.

Excellent beer. It is not my favorite, or even close. It is just a good beer to sit down and drink with some friends. You donít covert this beer, you just drink it. You enjoy it. Not quite a session beer, but itís good for any occasion.

Deep golden with a white head - Malt and some hops in the aroma - Nice malt to support a nice hop profile with some fruity notes and some bitterness - the hops goes into a light bitter finish - This was nice
