Bomber bought at Albertsons in Hayden, ID. Best before 2/23/14, so Iím guessing this is pretty fresh. Aroma is doughy, catty, piney, wheat cracker, grapefruit, floral. Pours clear copper-gold with a medium off-white head with great retention and lace. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter; heavy bitterness lingers through the long finish. Crisp and refreshing. Medium body, highly carbonated. Nice fresh hop ale.

650 ml. Maybe a light haze on the burnt orange-golden body supporting a quarter inch of meringue on top. Olfactory perception is dank ash, lightly scorched grain, peppery resin, green herb and a hint of grapefruit. Flavor is resin, lightly scorched herbs and grain, peppery citrus pith. Light-medium body is way dry, has average but smooth carbonation and a long finish of charred cabbage. Another predictable, but drinkable and well-crafted American IPA using a "new hop strain" to blast your face off.

Bomber. Poured clear lighter golden with a sticky whitish head.. set up nicely in the glass. The aroma picked up fresh lighter fruit and grassy hops over lightly honeyed malts. The flavor found kind of sharp black pepper and floral bitterness over light fruit meat and a kiss of honey.. finished spicy. Medium-bodied and a little too sharp on the palate.. just ok overall.

22oz bomber pours up with a clear copper body that has gold hues and supports a white head. The modest aroma offers up some sweet malts, a light citrus candy note and then slivers of spicy hops and earthy lime. The taste begins with nice citrus hop flavor and bitterness thatís backed up by a bit of smooth sweet malts. It then heads into some mango like tropical fruit notes as well as spicy hops to a dash of earthy hop notes here and there. Nice IPA although it lacks juiciness it does provide a bit of a dry finish.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Light bitter hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Good beer tho not quite an IPA to me. Fresh hops come thru in the nose and flavor, but not so aggressive. vey drinkable.

22 oz bottle shared last night. Gold with a white head. Fresh resinous hops, pine, medium bitterness, light citrus fruit. It was OK.

stevoj (2148) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Nice try but merely average. Initial sharp hop bitterness, but kind of flat after that. Heady with sticky lacing light amber, piney nose. Flavor is bitter but fades fast. metallic and dry finish.

Pours a clear copper with a large white head with a bit of sticky lacing. Huge hop aroma. Orange, peach, grapefruit, and pine. Taste is not as expected based on the aroma. Pine and malt dominate with a grassy, straw like taste. Hint of citrus, slightly spicy. Long bitter finish of hop resin and malts. Medium body, slick and somewhat creamy texture, average carbonation. Different for an IPA, stands out from the crowd. Very hoppy, but not as overwhelming as most IPAs. Hops are definitely very fresh tasting. Certainly worth the price!

On tap at Yard House Houston. A dense, finger thick off-white head sits on top of a clear golden body. Thereís some peach in the aroma, but itís the citrus peel, grapefruit and pine cones that dominates. The flavor has a fine bitterness, some sweetness in the back and a good dash of pine cones and grapefruit. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Long finish with a tad too much sweetness, but thereís enough bitterness to deal with it. Nice. 131114
