Bomber from Whole Foods in Sacramento. Copper color with a decent beige head. Aromas of citrus and light caramel. Medium body with kinda fizzy carbonation. Flavor is mild caramel and a decent amount of floral/fruit hop. Finishes more dry than not, there’s bitter in the mouth, and it’s rather clean. Not gonna hit the Top 100, but it’s definitely a good drink. Maybe NS’s second best. Waiting for the IIPA.

Bottle. Copper-amber beer with a cream-colored head. Nice summer fruit and tangerine aroma. Summer fruit flavor with grainy malt, l;ight earth, and cirus. Medium-plus bodied. SUmmer fruit lingers with grain and cereal notes. Nice hop flavor but graininess takes over.
