3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Milltown. Pours a soft straw yellow with one two fingers of sticky white head. Sickly hoppy nose, tons of resin and citrus rind with raw hop leaf and cone seeping through. Very dank and heady. Flavor is super intense, takes on that mothbally character some overhopped beers have for me. Tastes almost like a chemical on the finish. No me gusta.

Bomber. Pours a pale orange gold, very slight haze. medium head, white with decent retention, nice lacing.Nose is hoppy, pine in the front, little bit of citrus and tropical fruit. Full mouthfeel, almost oily, but fades rather quickly and not as much hops bitterness as I expected. Enjoyable.

Great color, head and lacing. Huge aroma - should get a 10 but... the skunky, oniony aromas from Amarillo and Simcoe hops overwhelm the more desirable citrus, pine and floral notes from the Columbus and Centennial. This also comes through in the flavor. I would like to love this beer. It would get about a 4.7 without the nasty hops.

Draught at Eureka Burger. Rating #72. Hazy orangish color with a white head. Sweet malty and light tropical aroma. Toasty flavor, very malt forward, which threw me for a loop. Wasn’t a real big fan to tell you the truth. (2475)

Pours a hazy amber with a fairly small head. A lot of hops to the aroma without overpowering the nose. Good level of hops, though balanced well to cut the bitterness.

Shiny golden color. White head gets thinnish soon. Strong floral hop nose. Taste is biscuity and hoppy. Citrus with a biscuit and gravy backend. Weird. Really funky amd foody. Its got plenty of character and should be enjoyed by more women and children all around.

Bomber from Bier 30 in Boise. Pours a very clear copper color with a large thick white head. A great bursting nose of fruity hops and resin is coming through. A great flavor: pure Cali goodness here, sweet resiny hops with massive fruit, insane drinkability, Simcoe, sweet candy, caramel. Awesome! I guess this isn’t everyone’s cuppa but man this is good. Leaves your lips lingering with bitterness and sweet as hell hops. Homerun.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 The appearance here is darker golden hue with a creamy off white head which is long lasting. Aroma of grapefruit, onion, garlic. Flavor is more garlic and onion. Odd combination, but it works somewhat. I had this after Sierra Nevada hoptimum, and it pales in comparison. Interesting flavor, yet with that said, it doesn’t quite float my boat.
