4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with a light tan head of foam. The aroma is thick with resiny hops coming from pine to grapefruit to a certain level of grassiness. As it warmed I started to pick up some floral hop notes. The taste is resiny hop richness nuanced by a modest malt sweetness. I get grapefruit, lime peel, grassy wet bitter hop leaves, a bit of dank earthy hoppiness and then it seems to get more resiny with robust levels of pine sap midway and into the finish. This is big bold rich and bitter with slivers of hop flavor here and there to keep it interesting. Dandy IIPA.

Strong green grass and grapefruit aromas. Clear medium yellow body with a foamy white head. A bracing grapefruit and pine bitterness greets you first followed by a solid alcohol bite. Then a caramel sweetness and an almost buttery smoothness follow this as an excellent counterbalance. The resiny hops swirl around in your mouth after this in a most delicious way. Finishes bitter and sticky on the tongue with a sweet aftertaste. Solid DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Go Fred! Pours hazy light amber with a foamy/creamy white head. Lots of citrus/floral hop over a light malt backbone - for aroma. Med body. Flavor is floral with a touch of some spice. Thereís a little malt, the sweetness is detectable, but thereís burny spice, and a lot of hop thatís more floral than anything else. Enough hop to put a burn on the internal tissues of the mouth. It gets a bit gluey texture with time. Or maybe thatís membranes coming off the mouth. It is hard to pin down the hop, suffice it to say thereís a lot of hop, itís very floral, and it has hot bits. Excellent.

Amber color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Crisp, sharp taste of hops, grass, pepper, and light woodiness. Very nice and less strong than the alcohol content would lead you to believe.
