Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin for another DIPA treat. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Smooth softish palate with good fine carbonation. Light creamy malt supports crisp fresh orange hops. Lesser hop skunk. Finishes smooth with hop spice lingering on. I found this light.and easy going!

Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Clean amber color with creamy head. Very nice aroma, hoppy, fresh, fruity; later, the animal side shows too. Good body strength, not too thick; caramel and toffee flavor, with just an acceptable touch of crystal malt; moderate sweetness; strong hopping, with loads of piney resins, reasonable fruity contribution; the final is a bit, pleasantly abrasive; long. It manages not to be chewy.
Excellent.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours clear bright copper/amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is mild roast caramel with some barley wine hop levels. Full bodied. Flavor is roast malt with a lot of hop. Still has that brown sugar aspect, but there’s floral, resin, citrus, grass ... And there’s a lot of hop. Mild mouth burn. But the hop isn’t NW harsh. It’s just pretty close to overwhelming. Not sure it finishes dry, but probably close enough. This one is for hop - not harshness. Did I mention there’s a lot of hop?
