Pour is a hazy copper with a small white head, Aroma is nicely hopped with a decent pine resin. Flavor is also decently hopped but not overly so. The malts are just barely there but do leave a nice dry cracker on the tounge. Decent beer and at a nice price.

This reminds me so much of something but I can’t think of exactly what. Bigger bodied IPA, sticky, glasses, but lively carbonation makes it easy to drink. Medium caramel, toast, peach, orange, pine, resin, all fairly equally balanced, Resiny tropical sharp kick at the finish with light lingering bitterness. Really well done here.

Bottle. Poured an orange color with a nice white head. Head did retain throughout the entire beer. Plenty of lacing left on the side of the glass as the beer went. Aroma was pine, spruce, grass and maltly caramel. Flavor was a lot of the same. Malty backbone. Some hops in the finish. A more balanced ipa. Decent.

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep, transparent copper with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of piney and citrusy hops, a good amount of caramel malts, and a hint of spiciness. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good IPA.

Appearance: clear golden orange with 1 finger sudsy tight white head. Aroma: grapefruity citrus up front, slight pine notes, and hints of caramel malt. Taste: balance of pine bitter and sweet floral hops, nice sweet malt and bitter dry finish. Mouthfeel: thin to medium, slick body, dry aftertaste. Overall: really great IPA. Very impressed. Nice multi-hop flavor with well balanced malt backbone.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Binny’s Arlington Heights. Aromas of citrusy hops, light tropical fruits, and some underlying sweet malts. Flavors of sweet malts, light citrus, and some light bitterness in the end. A bunch of test batches and this is what they picked? Maybe a bad bottle. I assume this is probably fresh as it is the first time I have seen it, but hops seem faded. Oh well I usually like the hoppy offerings from this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Kind of surprised I’m the first to have this. Gorgeous copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is big floral hops, citrus fruit, pine and caramel. Taste is pine needles, citrus fruit, hop resins, herbal notes, floral notes, sweet malt, caramel notes, and tropical fruit. Damn tasty! Body is medium but chewy with a resinous feel and soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more floral hops, citrus notes, pine, caramel, hop resins, sweet malt, ad tropical fruit notes.

Taster at RateBeer awards dinner. Smelled of pine and floral hops. The flavor was slightly less full than anticipated. Smooth on the palate making it an easy drinker. Would like to try again.
