bhensonb (12962) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours orange tinged gold with a creamy off-white head. The nose is so full of so many different hops. Floral is a fair deScription, but inadequate. Full bodied. Flavor is floral/perfume, citrus, and something like earthy/resin. The hop load is fantastic. Mild burn and lots and lots of sensory impingments. Maybe some sort of unusual fruit towards the finish. This is just great ale.
