4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Draft sample. Poured a clear copper color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Tap at Whole Foods. Orange pour. Aroma is so loaded with fresh hops! Resinous, tropical fruit. And the hops carry right into the flavor. So fresh and vibrant.
