Michigan..huh? You are alright in my book. I love the upper peninsula. Anyways, this is a satisfying imperial. You know.. that strong IPA your taste buds are waiting for. Go for it! That’s what it’s there for. Enjoy;)

Bomber. Citrus hop aroma with notes of grapefruit acidity. Pours dark copper colored with a big off white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with a bit of caramel, but is quickly overtaken by the grapefruit citrus and piney hops. Finishes dry with hop bitterness but balances well so it's not overpowering. Good stuff.

BBB63 (6445) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2008
2008 MiBGF: Coppery hue with a excellent head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramelized malt, floral and grassy hops, apple and peppery phenolic esters. The taste start with bitter snap and acidity supported by lots of sweet malts for balance. Hop spice and slightly boozy finish. The mouth feel is oily and sticky, warming with a sharp kick around the edges. This was really nice and the best beer I had on Day 1.

Bomber. Pours a darkish copper with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Aroma is big with grapefruit, resin, caramel and a light woodiness. Flavor is caramel quickly dried by the resin, wood and grapefruit. Near-medium body is smooth, dangerously drinkable, and dry.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours amber copper with a foamy off-white head. Lots of resin aroma hop. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is lots of (mostly resin?) hop over caramel. But the effect is tremendous. Finishes well balanced. Quite tasty.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Pours hazy, deep copper toned, aromas of citrus and resin hit you and draw you in. Wonderful floral, citrus, grapefruit juice, malt backbone, very deftly balances the heavy hops. Hides the alcohol very well, could easily drink several of these tooo quickly ! Enjoy.

From a 220z bottle from Pick’s Liquors poured into a snifter. Dark frothy white head that leaves very nice lacing. The beer is dark rusty orange in color. The aroma is floral and grassy hops and sweet malt. Taste is extremely bitter. Medium bodied and thick textured, it has average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, this beer is awesome. At 7 bucks a bottle, I’ll definitely be buying it again!
