COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michigan Hatter celebrates our local agriculture with its Michigan-grown Cascade hops from the Leelanau Penninsula. Bright and aromatic, with delicious malt notes underneath a citrusy showcase of hops. Pairings: sharp cheddars, herb-roasted poultry and curry.

a nice dry-hopped aroma of citrusy cascade hops atop a fluffy head atop a hazy golden amber. green and piney, with a bit of malt and no discernible alcohol heat. medium bodied and milder in the flavor than aroma, at least hops-wise and it finishes a relatively dry and clean grapefruit. very nice, and definitely lighter fare than some of the other IPAs around. I’d like to see this in a six-pack rather than bomber bottles...

Bomber. Ugly looking amber with lots of stuff. Hop and pine aroma. Spicy hop taste. Not really my thing.

Decent aroma and active amber pour with a simple but smooth taste and small aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In a tulip out of the bottle. One of many MI beers I'm trying after a trip. A classic cascade hop IPA. Tasty but not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by TheMattTucker

Bomber. Amber with lots of particulate. Spicy hops. Hoppy at the end. Not my favorite of the series.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

draft poured a copperish dark orange color with white head leaving lacing all the way down the glass. nice hop aroma consisting of citrus mostly. the flavor was nice and not over powering. solid citrus flavor backed by malt, medium bodied. pretty good ipa.

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bomber from Blue Dog Lansdale. Pours turbid deep coppery orangy with frothy 1-finger off-white head. Nose is bready caramel malt, oramge marmaladey fruit, piney hops. Tastes piney, resiny, very bitter and IBU-heavy in the alpha acid department, with finishing heavy bitterness, but mayhaps a bit unbalanced, but still delicious.

Aroma is citrus, malts and mild flower and sugar notes. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, slight earthy notes, fruit, mild sugar notes and a tangy/bitter finish. Most Cascade exclusive hopped IPAs to me anymore taste the same but this was little better.
