Clear amber with an off white head. Grassy ganja skunky smoke aromas with earthy floral; pretty nice, actually. Medium body. More straightforward flavor is tasty floral hops with honey sweet pale malts. Easy drinking and flavorful.

22oz bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Mostly malt aroma with hints of grassy hops. Fruity and yeasty flavor with a crisp hop finish. Good Spring beer (even though itís July).

Drank this bottle a few nights ago and it was quite good. Slightly dry and more crisp than their usual brews with a less hop bite (although there is some nice hop bitterness present). Well balanced brew with a slight herbal/flowery taste. Enjoyed this.

22oz bottles, I thought I reviewed this already. Amber pour with white head. Aroma is floral and citrus (lemon). Flavor is very floral little malt. Hop forward but not enough. Fairly boring really.

Bomber. Medium to deep amber body with an off-white, fizzy head, mostly diminishing. Malty aroma out front. Bread, caramel, grain, sweet raisin. More subdued in the nose are the floral hops.Just a hint of citrus and pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. The bitterness goes up a notch in the finish which is lightly sweet. The bitterness sticks around a long time along with a bread crust taste. Medium body with a velvety texture. Moderate to lively carbonation. Far from an in-your-face APA like Alpha King. Less carbonation, less crisp and clean. Subtle hops below a maltiness. Nonetheless, it works because of the balance.

Bomber from Bottle Trek. Pours orange amber with a slight white head that died lacing. Aromas of caramel and piney hop. Medium body with smooth, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor is mildly roasted caramel with a lot of floral/citrus/resin. Finishes definitely bitter. Really tasty.

hayduke (3318) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 31, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a slightly hazy orange to gold with a foamy white head and very robust lacing rings. Big nose of citrus and pine hops. Medium mouthfeel with distinct carbonation. Flavor is caramel malts and bitterness from the hops, and the finish is lightly bitter. A very drinkable and enjoyable APA.

raphael (866) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2009
from bottle. had been afraid it would be light and summery. colors alittle lighter & hazy. still close to an ipa.aroma of grapefruit, white sugar, almost apricot. a little flat in the mouth, and light. flavor at about 80% intensity, some harsh edge at that. overall pleasant

very nice, crisp beer. Ninkasi rarely makes a stinker and this one is no dud. Had from 22 oz bottle.

Poured from 22oz. Bomber into Pint glass. Pours a hazy orangish-gold color with a frothy white head that turns to a light ring around the glass. Aroma is of caramel, slight citrus and a touch of butter/diacetyl but it isnít that vibrant. Flavor mirrors the aroma except for more citrus hops with some toasty malts. Its a light bodied beer that is slick because of the present diacetyl. Its a decent beer out of the bottle but the tap version was seemed much fresher and more flavorful.
