Bomber from Tacoma boys. Pours a light golden color. Thick white head. Scent is not all that strong actually. Some hops. Kind of grassy. Taste is pretty hoppy. A little sweetness. Bitter finish. Good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper pour, fluffy white head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is super dank hops: oniony, garlicy, bright citrus, pine, no malts whatsoever. Lovely. Full bodied, mango, citrus, highly drinkable given the ABV. Really good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber sampled at home. Hazy orange with a white head. Smells like caramel, unripe mango, fresh pineapple, lime. The taste is very well balanced, full of fruity and bitter hop flavours. The alcohol is there, a bit in the smell and a bit more in the aftertaste, but still a fair amount less than I expected. Soft mouthfeel and medium bodied with a low carbonation and a hop bitter, alcohol spicy, tropical fruity aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland
Hazy golden color with compact head. Tropical and citrusy explosion, perfect pale malt canvas, balanced. Lean, with very moderate residual sweetness. When you can conceal bitterness and alcohol so skillfully, the result is a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Pours golden with about 1 inch off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is sweet, hoppy alcohol. I would call it a high alcohol palate wrecker. I’m not really digging it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Thanks to KL. Clear Citra nose, with some fumes rising, and pungent overripe tropical fruit and body odor. A punch in the nose. Bright gold straw color. Tropical fruit initial, alcohol pokes through soon, and the deep sinister bittering goes on and on. Heavy, thick, and a touch cloying in finish. Wow! Thick, rich flavors. Great hop combination. A superb imperial IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Dank citrus hop nose, grapefruit, biscuits, sweat, mango. Dry, hoppy flavor, tropical fruit. Not at all syrupy, but very dry, with a soft, full body and huge hop flavors. This is a masterpiece. Maybe the best Imperial IPA I have had.
