Bomber shared by Forgetfu (thanks Bill!) poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, grapefruit, earthiness, light orange and light grassiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, grapefruit, orange zest, light earthiness and light grassiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish.

Bottle. A deep rich golden orange color with a nice foamy white head. I was impressed with the hop flavor and feel of this on the palate. Itís hard to believe this is only a 5% abv beer. For what this beer is (style and objectives), this is excellent.

Bottle @ Ratmanís. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with an off white head. ‹ber spicy, garlic, onion, hoppy, herbal hoppy aroma. A bit chewy, cracker, grapefruity, spicy flavor. Fun stuff.

Zymurgeist2 (941) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Massive citrus aroma!! Tons of grapefruit and passion fruit! Explodes like Jimi Hendrix blasting open a set. Deep gold with fluffy white head. As clear as Tracy Chapman belting out a ballad. Flavor of overwhelming grapefruit and candi-like sweetness. Hop flavor lasts longer than the Tom Petty 7-day residence at The Fillmore in í99. Bitterness is nicely restrained. Would welcome an encore performance with this beer!

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with a decent thin cap of white and white lacing left behind.

Aroma: Fresh citrusy hops, orange peel, light bread dough, bread crust.

Taste: Juicy hops, bitter piny hops, dry toasty malt, finishes very clean.

Mouthfeel: Thin, juicy, average carbonation.

Overall: A very tasty Pale Ale. Itís one of my favorite styles when the hops do the talking and the malt does the walkiní.

Pours a clear medium gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a great floral and citrus aroma with a background of pale malt. The flavor is floral and citrus hops up front with a maltier middle and a citrus aftertaste over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber, received as a gift from a bottle shop (whose name I donít recall and canít find on the google) I was taken to by a friend in Petaluma. Clear gold amber pour, ample white head, no lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and flowers. Taste big on grapefruit. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Assertive bitter bite. Medium body, moderate carbonation. A nice, unexpected treat!

Bottle thanks to Dan. Spicy and very tea-like on the nose, with grassy bitterness and hints of melon and grapefruit showing through a bit more in the flavor. Dry, herbal and floral, with secondary fruit aspects. Crisp and clean. Very nice.

Pours a nice medium amber gold. Transparent, no noticeable haze. Big white head. Rocky with big bubbles sticking to the walls of the glass. The aroma could be turned up. It has a nice hop tone of grapefruit, tangerine, grass and a bit of pine. Thereís also a pleasant malt presence contributing a good deal of caramel. Maybe a touch of butter. With a big increase to the hop aroma, this beer would shine. The taste is a step up from the aroma. Thereís some pleasant bitterness, particularly in the finish. Fairly dry. Very easy to drink. The malt flavor is pleasant enough. Nice doughy, caramel flavor. However, this is a hop-forward APA, and while the hops are well handled in the taste, they need to be turned up in the aroma. Still, this is a good beer, and Iíd be very happy to drink a few pints while watching a football game or something. Nice session-ish beer.
