Bomber. Citrus, pine and caramel. Light bitterness throughout. Crisp. Well balanced. A good light IPA or a great hoppy pale ale. Tasty.

On draught at hub - pours a nice clear copper color with medium thick white head. Nose is both hoppy, syrupy, and boozy. Taste is hop forward with dry citrus finish. Centennial hops are one of my favorites.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Bomber. It pours to a dark golden color. The aroma is very strong pine & citrus hops. The taste is a strong hop flavor up front followed by a good malt balance. Overall an excellent IPA.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Aug. 2013, bottle from Bottleworks, SF) Pours bright amber, crystal clear. Aroma is quite light, sprite-like, hops, lychee and pineapple with an underlying sticky-sweet malt. The taste is where it takes the wrong direction. there is some fruit and citrus from the hop, but very fleeting, followed by a bitter and sweet richness that disappears almost as soon at it appears. Not a bad beer, but a bad IPA and a forgettable experience.
