4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Pours lightly hazy copper with a lacy white head. Sweet grapefruit, mango, toffee, pineapple and grass aroma. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet grapefruit, mango, nuts, peach taste. Nicely but not overly bitter finish. For whatever reason, this beer hits me just right. If I could brew an IPA like this, I might just stop buying IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice if not ordinary IPA. Aroma was so so. Citrus and earthy hops. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little thin with piney hops dominating and just a hint of caramel malt. Medium carbonation makes this beer, good but not anything to write home about.

Smells grapefruity and a little like an orange. Smells very crisp as well. Cloudy pour. Tastes sweet and is quite astringent. Ends with a kind of woodsy, grassy flavor. Im pleased.

Bottle. Aroma of grapefruit, other citrus, perfumy hops. Flavor adds toasted/bready malt to the equation, as well as an earthy yeastiness that I didn’t find did wonders for the mouthfeel of an IPA. Still, pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops and grapefruit. Flavor is more citrusy with some grapefruit in the background. Nice IPA, nothing terribly exciting though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden amber color out of the bottle with a sticky white head. Grapefruit juice, orange peel and hairspray in the nose. Really nice hop head beer, with lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemongrass notes. Bready malt backbone underneath it all with a long grapefruit rind finish. Enjoyable IPA.

Bomber bonused from hannont, thanks Todd. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet and citrussy. Taste is very strange, its very bitter, but actually sweet, I get grapefruit, and a sour pucker from it. All in all this is a really interesting, grapefruit IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden orange with a nice lasting thin head and sticky lacing. Aroma is somewhat malty with hints of caramel and pale malts. Hops are earthy, floral, and herbal. Toasty malt flavors followed by a nice piney herbal hops. Not overly bitter, but more balanced and very drinkable.
