3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a murky copper/orange with small white head. Aroma is yeasty and heavy on toffee malts. Taste has a bite hop spice into caramel and toffee malts with some bitterness and light citrus. An English IPA with almost a barley wine flavor. A bit lacking on hops however.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper color with a blend of red and orange. The head has a nice retention and the foam sticks to my glass. The aroma is of crisp malts and has defined hop notes. The hops had citrus, minor spice, very resinous, and grassy scents. While tasting I picked up on sugary malted grains, a bitter bite, and booze. The body was medium and it had a good finish that did not linger too long. Nothing really stands out here. Its a good beverage but not one I’d search to have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a clear orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Strong caramelly malt backbone supporting an even stronger hop load: grapefruit, black currant, black pepper, pine resin. Fruity. Tangy. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Good stuff in the West Coast IPA vein.

From bomber. Pours a rich clear dark honey color with a thin dense foam head that hangs around and lots of lacing that clings to the glass. Aroma is subdued, with citrus floral notes. Taste is bitter, some citrus and floral. Medium oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle purchased at Learys Fine Wine for $8.95. Dirty orange color with lasting head. Aroma is fruit and floral and mild grassy hops. Tempting.
The flavor is sweeter then I was hoping with more of an English feel to it. Candied orange and peach upfront with grain and caramel in the center. Also has a light earth note with the grassy and floral notes. The body is medium with a lightly dry texture. I drank the 22 oz. myself and it actually really grew on my as I sipped. The ABV was hidden until I stood up. A nice surprise.

This might be the most delicious Imperial IPA I have ever had. Hops, but not chalky. You cannot taste the alcohol at all, never mind being over 10%. Fantastic nose and finish.

The aroma is caramel, roasty and hops. Pours a yellow/copper cloudy with an off white head somewhat lasting. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation average and the finish bitter. Overall not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-06-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a medium sized smooth off-white head with a lengthy retention, hazy golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, earthy and caramel malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, semi-sweet, and caramel malt. This beer has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste, but not overly hoppy tasting for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. No idea how old it is. Pours an unclear orangey copper with a white head leaving coats of lace down the sides of the glass. Aroma has pine and citrus and fruits, with oranges and pineapple quite strong, and caramel. Taste is sweet fruits, led by pineapple, bitter orange peel and a solid caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied with very little alcohol presence for over 10%. Finishes quite balanced between bitter and sweet. Solid, well balanced brew.
