4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle poured a golden color with a big fluffy white head that laced the glass well. aroma has pine, citrus, sweetness, and resin. has a sharp fresh nose. mouth feel is medium and coats well with hefty carbonation. flavor has plenty of hop flavors(citrus, pine, grapefruit, and bitterness), balancing sweetness, and enough malt to stand up to this. the beer is big and hopped but not overly bitter. has a nice lingering finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lovely bright amber-orange with great head and lacing. Aromatic. Bright fruity hops, papaya esters, tangelo, some earthiness in the background lingering. Body is surprisingly quaffable. Does have a little sweet cloying thing at the end but not in any offensive way. Hop flavors are mainly earthy with just a hint of fruit, which is just the opposite of the aromas. At first quite nice and not too intense. Grows stickier, heavier, and duller towards the end of the glass.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. 8% ABV. 102 I.B.U. O.G. 1.085 Pours a lovely thick tan head of good duration, with nice lacing, over a clear dark (SRM 15) golden body.....nose roars with resin, pine, grapefruit.....tastes of sweet malts early, then heavy resin, grapefruit flavors arrive and carry through to a surprisingly mild bitter finish, there is sweet malt in the back ground throughout....mouth feel is thick and heavy, carbonation medium. I wonder if the F.G. was about 1.020.

Bomber from Archer Liquors. Wow this kicked ass. Beautiful deep orange pour with a nice bit of head. Nose is resin pine with alcohol in the background. Grapefruit also comes through nicely. Flavor is dominated by those beautiful hops and there is a nice sweeness to the taste followed by a good malt presence then ending with an appropriate bitterness. Great brew.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2009 Bomber. Pours a deeper than expected golden amber color with a small white head. Aroma is prolly the weakest part of this brew. Taste is big, complex, sweet and great. The color of this beer really adds to the deep taste of hops and a citrus sweetness and complex hoppy bite. Very enjoyable. Go WINGS !

Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. Wonderful citrus/grapefruit aromas. You can also smell some caramel malt backing, but not too much. Flavor is of pure hop juice! Great citrus/grapefruit flavorsthat end in a bitter finale! Not too much of a malt backing, just some hidden sweetness in there. Great brew!

Citrus grapefruit aroma so sharp it burns your nose, creamsickle like sweetness is the only semblence of malt,taste is pure hop flavors and bitterness,grapefruit meat and rind, tongue curling bitterness to finish,all in a bomber less then 4 bucks,its just so amazing how a California brewery can deliver such high quality at such a reasonable price. Thanks Lt.Judge

Bomber. Clear dark gold color, nice white head. Delicious nose of grapefruit and pine, very similar to Hopslam and other nice hop bombs. Same citrus characteristics in the flavor with a surprisingly short, dry finish. Easy drinking, crisp, and tasty.
