From bottle. Amber golden color, pours with a lot of head and a large amount of sediment in the pour. Odd aroma that is mostly malty, with not much hops. Taste is better, with some citrus hops but still mostly sweet malt. Finishes with a spicy sweetness.

Bomber at Lake Wenatchee.
Deep red-orange pour with abundant head. Pineapple aroma, pine-sap flavors. Sticky sweet on the front end. A bit hot. Not a good DIPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Opaque orange, small off-white head fades. Faint sweet malt citrus hop aroma. Taste is fruity sweet caramel malts with a moderate floral citrus hop bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, well hopped. This English take on an American take of an English style lacks intensity, as I suppose it should, but it’s still DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty (caramel and crystal), citrus and slight resinous hoppiness. Thick and unwieldy. Not nearly hop-forward enough to be any sort of IPA

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish brown in color... Aroma of sweet toffee... Flavor is caramel, malts, hits of hops on finish... Intensely malty and sweet, not a dry ipa by any means... Not very good

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in a flight. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is decently hoppy with pine elements coming off of it. Taste is somewhat bitter, but pretty smooth. Decent DIPA, and I’d happily drink it some more.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very week aroma of metallic malts. Copper appearance. Very dispraportionate flavors of burnt caramel, more metallic flavors, odd funk and awkward bitter hops. Overall, this is extremely unbalanced and awkward. Not pleasant drinking at all.

22 oz bottle - Pours a hazy orange. Major hops aroma. Smells a bit of alcohol. Oh, boy! Good strong Imperial IPA flavor. Solid, but nothing special for this category.
