16oz can poured a partially cloudy orange color with minimal white head and nice lacing...the aroma was immaculate. plenty of malt up front with citrus and some piney/grass undertones. the flavor was much more of the same. very flavorful of malts and citrus hops in every sip. yet is was smooth as well as bitter but not an over biting bitterness...really liked this one. thanks chad

On tap at Three Penny in Montpelier. Orange/gold pour as pictured. What a fantastic beer. So bright, so citrusy, just a punch of bright hops with every sip. No wonder people go crazy for this one.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep golden light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is massive! Lots of citrus, floral, fleshy fruit hop character. Big hop character in the flavor as well, not overly bitter, with a nice caramel malt background. Solid! Thanks Luke for sharing.

Bomber from Robert K. Poured a good looking bright orange amber body with a larger foamy white head. Aroma and flavor are rather delicate. Notes of pineapple skins, grains, apricots, some dough and a touch of citrus rind. Medium body with a very dry finish and a lingering aftertaste. Meh, good but ooverrated.

Can, 4 weeks old, thanks to trade with Taylor. Pours cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is packed with hops. Spiciness, fruity citrus flavours, pine and dank, aswell as peach and melon coming through. Taste is really fresh crisp, quite bitter and moderate sweet. Very well balanced. Long fresh hoppy finish. Medium bodied with soft to moderate carbonation. Very happy I could try this one.
