Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a decent sized white head. Really big perfume notes on the aggressively hopped nose with some floral presence in the back. An effervescent, dry body follows with a lot of minerals, earthy hops, light fruit (pear maybe?), and fresh cut grass. Hoppy upfront, weird middle palate, and dry fast finish. Worth trying for $4.99, but nothing special.

Pours copper with a nice white head and a little lace. Aroma is awesome, of hops, citrus and herbs. Smooth flavour, light, nice hop finish, citrus.

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bomber---> Tulip. Pours a hazy amber orange with a small bubbly head and mild lace. Aroma is very muted funk and light citrus. Not much going on in the smell department. Taste is pretty sour funk and some light clan citrus with yeast notes. Kind of flat on the tongue but not overly thin. Overall a very uninspiring beer.

kidobutai (225) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Great clean aroma. Enormous head that quickly begins looking like soap suds. Slightly cloudy but nice golden color. Not bitter, but tart, easy going down. Right amount of carbonation. If this is considered an IPA, itís my favorite... probably because it doesnít taste like an IPA.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Clear lt brown and orange with large fluffy off-white head that lingers and leaves nice lacing. Aromas lemongrass, citrus hops, spice, yeasty funkiness and bleu cheese. Crisp carbonation, smooth mouth, nice dryness in the finish. Flavors yeast, wood, some hoppy bitterness, malt & peppery spice. Pretty good, though not a favorite.

backdaft (181) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bomber. Pours a light amber color. Thin white head leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is a bit of funky yeast and floral hops. Taste is same with some malt and faint lemon citrus. Pretty good, but not their greatest.

bhiner41 (177) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Sour all the way, but no sharp sour notes. Smell is hoppy and musty. Color is hazy orange, thick foamy tan head. Bitter taste with a sour finish. Rather short dry finish as well. Nice mix of the sour and pale style.

agent_511 (157) - - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a deep gold with a moderate white head. Floral hop aroma. Slight malty flavor that blends well with the spice and grapefruit hop flavor. Some carbonation in the mouthfeel. Very pleasant little beer.

Never been particularly impressed with anything Iíve had from New Holland, this is no exception but it is better than the other offerings Iíve tried. A lot of funk but pretty well balanced, enjoyable but nothing special.

May have been a bit past its prime - it literally exploded out of the bottle, though still a very enjoyable beer; amber color; citrusy, spicy aroma; nice citrusy hop flavor with the spicy, fruity notes of a Belgian ale
