3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, August 2011
Sweet and soft aromas of hops, packed with citrus and candy notes. Itís flowery with an incredible resemblance to lilacs. Some scratchy, sharp hops finishes the aroma. Light to medium bodied, taste is filled with grass, flowers, lemons, nectar and last but not least, more flavours of lilacs! Very unique and interesting. Finishes with a raw bitterness.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber pours brilliantly clear gold with copper core and off white head. The aroma offers up juicy grapefruit and tangelo as well as lime peel, spicy hops and an herbal like sensation with hints of sugary sweet malts off in the background. The taste is quite bold with grapefruit, tangelo and tangerine like citrus notes that lean more toward bitter hops than flavor hops. Lots of yummy hops here with only echoes of sweet maltiness well of in the background.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very hazy orange amber with a creamy 2 finger off-white head. Aroma seems to be light stone fruits over mild caramel. Some florality. Med body. Flavor is roasted malt with a bunch of mixed hop. Enough hop for it to be harsh and burning. So itís good. I think itís resin with a lot of grapefruit rind - but itís mixed, so Iím uncertain. Tho Iím certain it tastes really hoppy!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A clear, golden body is topped by a big, quite dense, off-white head. A bit weak on the nose, certainly hop dominated, with pine cones and resin. Some citrus peel. The flavor is quite bitter, lightly malty, with citrus peel and pine cones. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Lasting bitterness in the finish. A quite nice one, but a bit one dimensional. 110827

Pours mostly clear gold with a large beige head that leaves solid lacing. Aroma of dank, earthy, woody, resinous hops and a little light citrus and floral. Taste is nice, bold resinous hops dominate the beer but there is enough malt to balance it well. Very nice stuff.
