3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Albertsons. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A nice fruity aroma, grassy, oranges. The flavor is nice: light resin, oranges, lemon zest, a light floral hop, more sweet orange hop resin. Quite clean and flavorful. Fair price, and tasty. Good deal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a slight new belgium fat tire remnant. Slight peach cones through. Hoppy but not sharp hoppy. Surprising abv but mellow, not much alcohol taste. Careful with this one. Feels like a light beer with a different hoppy peach session beer edge.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Slightly hazy orange body, slowly ascending bubbles, and a big, long-lasting off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, pine and grass, medium fruit, and light floral notes. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel. Bright, orange- and pine-hops; underlying caramel; and noticeable alcohol; dry finish. Very drinkable, balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells floral, sweet and cidery. Pours clear, light golden with a small white head.
Tastes perfumy, grapefruit like, woody, malty, nice hop flavour.
Body is moderate to heavy, low carbonation, a nice finish.
Nicely balanced great tasting beer. I might forget I'm drinking an imperial.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very well balanced. Doesn’t taste heavy or over sugared like some higher alcohol double IPAs. Floral hop aroma. Not overly hoppy, like many Dbl IPAs. Finishes fairly clean with just a hint of lingering hop taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light copper pour w/ a big foamy white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is an enticing blend of citrus flavored hops. The taste is well balanced & not overly bitter. Nice citrus flavor going on & very smooth for its potency. This is a solid DIPA!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Clear orange copper, off-white foam mostly fades. Fruity fresh hoppy aroma, citrus and pine. Initial taste is bitter resinous citrus pine hop, quickly softening to a mostly fruity hop flavor, grapefruit, peach, apple and pear, subdued sweet malts. Average carbonation, lighter bodied for an Impy, more aggressively hopped. Mild boozy aftertaste. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden. Frothy white head. Fresh hop aroma. Very nice lacing. Big grapefruit flavor. Sometimes you drink a double and its disappointing because the sweet malt overtakes the bitter. This one is the way I imagine that a double should be. Plenty of bitter like you want, but just enough sweetness to give it great balance. Very tasty and easy drinking for being 8.5%

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a clear, golden orange, massive fluffy white head, unparalleled retention and wicked lacing. Nose is resinous hoppiness, guava, passion fruit, citrus, melon, pine. Mouth is medium bodied, thin for the style, bittersweet (emphasis more on the bitter), tropical fruit, cakey malt, mildly soapy towards back end. Another pleasant surprise from NB and very nicely priced.
