akoeninger (341) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Purchased a bomber. Nice dark color with some red highlights nice tan head. Piney hop aroma with a roasty, toasty side. Clean, balanced beer with an earthy hoppy flavor that ends with a hint of roasted malt. Solid black ups. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

574deadzone (885) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bomber. Pours nicely black with ruby highlights and a tall, rocky khaki head that settles slowly and leaves some healthy lace. Nose initially presents ashy roastiness which gives way to a clean, earthy pine hop note. Pretty sweet flavorwise, and touch less bitter. Medium-full body, softer carb, creamy, with a toasty bitter finish. A solid brew, but not especially hop forward as one might hope. More toward a hoppier robust porter. Still tasty, though.

Imaena (1701) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bomber. The nose is all hops. Very floral and grassy - aggressive hopping is evident. It pour solid black with a big tan head that fades quickly. The taste is roasty and very hoppy. Its a bit thin on the palette which is a bit of a let down. But overall its a pretty good black IPA.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 12, 2013
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a semi-transparent black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was black malt and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of black malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Mittenator (1090) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bomber. Dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Malt, honey and hop aromas. Hops, coffee, chocolate and malt. Super astringent.

hazy pour with minimum head, a little weak in the taste. Looks better than its taste.
