Bomber: Aroma is a very nicely hoppy, with the slightest bit of malts in the backing. Mostly citrus, grapefruit, and pine are in the initial scent. Appearance is a clear brown with a medium tan head that doesn’t last for long. Taste has got a little bit more of the malt characteristics, a bit of roasted malt, but there is a big prevalent hop note as well. Palate is nicely carbonated, with an aftertaste of lingering bitterness. Cheers!

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bomber. Pours dark brown wit lots of lasting foam. Aroma is of dark malt, bitter hops, and plums. Taste is a disappointing combination of bitter metal, followed by more bitter, and then more metal. Dark malt notes pop in throughout, but overall this is an uninspiring brew with little notable taste. Not impressed.

adnielsen (9115) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Charred dark malty, a bit smoky, light tar, piney, a bit fruity, odd aroma. Tangy, charred, roasty malty, a bit fruity, organic hoppy flavor. Not good now and I can’t imagine it was much better fresh.

Bottle, 2011 vintage. It pours dark with little head. The aroma is mild, with only a little hops coming through. Taste is just average with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

jesperhammer (2899) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
22-MAR-2012, bottle @Papsø. Dark brown and clear. Roasted nose, bitter and hoppy. Taste is mostly IPA-like. Like the Rye Hatter this is very spicy. Roast kicks in late. Not really in balance. Medium body.

superspak (2614) - Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2012
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottle 12/16/2011. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense khaki head with very good retention that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, orange, toasted malt, biscuit, light chocolate, and herbal spiciness. Some good aromas here, but they are also very muted. Taste of big grapefruit, caramel, pine, roasted malt, biscuit, orange, light chocolate, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, roasted malt, caramel, and herbal spiciness for a good bit. Some decent flavor balance, but the hops are more prominent in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol presence is invisible at 5.5%, no warming noticed at all. Overall this is a nice and enjoyable black IPA. Very smooth to drink; with a good amount of flavor and balance.
