3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma ha a nice pungent citrusy hop texture with grapefruit predominant in the scent. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that linger around for a while. Taste is quite nice with the hops punching you in the mouth, grapefruit, lightly astringent, candy, and light pine notes. Palate has got medium to high carbonation with a lingering hop aftertaste. Overall, Pretty good stuff. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours a clear dark golden color with averabe white head and lacing. Aroma is full of honeydew melon, with some floral hops, peach, and a bit of caramel. Taste is fruity sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Aftertaste is honeydew. Body is medium with lively carbonation.Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Could have better balance. A bit of a disappointment for an IIPA, my favorite style, but by now I am surprised when anything from New Belgium exceeds my expectations.

Clear golden in appearance. Looks like a premium lager sporting a pure white head. Fruity citrusy hoppy floral aroma. Tadte is candy sweet floral. I have mixed feelings about this beer. It hides its alcohol well. It tastes amd smells good and bad all at the same time every other sip. Se la beer.

Bottle. Cloudy, brownish pour with long lasting head, good lacing. Nose is pine, clean malts, peach, orange. Flavor is fairly bitter, melon, unripened honeydew. Tastes just like biting into a honeydew, but if that honeydew was exceedingly bitter. I’d like to. Try these hops in a less bittered IPA/extra pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice clear golden color with a bone white head. Nice retention so far. The aroma starts off fruity and then has a herbal bitter aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Apricot and peach like flavors followed by a solid level of hop bitterness. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit rind, and light caramel. Well balanced blend of citrus hops and malt. The flavor does lack the bitterness of either pine or citrus that I would like to have tasted. However, this is a solid, although not exceptional, DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the tap a clear, bubbly golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled cream-white head. Hearty aroma is royally hoppy with more than a hint of fruit - more at pomme than citrus. Flavor has plenty of hops, mainly woody, not as bitter as the description promises, but who cares - this is a more than decent Double IPA with citrus and resiny undertones. And yes, a hint of peach. Finish is indeed dry, fizzy and hoppy. A rampant beer that demands respect!
