Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate head. Nose is quite floral up-front. Taste is definitely hoppy and bitter with the floral elements coming through in the taste, too. Very easy drink.

4/14/13. Bomber thanks to LOL bitbucket. WBW before OTL weight loss challenge tomorrow. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Lots of yeast in the bottom of the bottle, beware floaties. Malty aroma and flavor, pale malts, biscuits, and a touch of caramel, with earthy, musty hops, and black tea. Meh.

Poured from bomber into snifter, typical DIPA/IIPA color, clear, but with sediment aplenty. Aroma is a bit bitter in a chemical way, taste matches with a soapy aftertaste. I have to say I am a bit disappointed but still enjoying it.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Nice hoppy floral, pine spicy aromas. Smooth medium body. Tropical fruit, pine sap hoppy flavors with a solid pale malt base---lightly astringent finish--good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a foamy/creamy near-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, but itís not harsh resin or citrus. Sort of mixed floral/citrus over a light, pleasant caramel backdrop. Near full bodied. Flavor is very hoppy - thereís hop burn. Still it seems floral and citrus. Amazing amount of hop here. Not even noticing the malt til I think about it. Suddenly I get light pitted fruit - apricot. Amazing. (thatís twice for that word). This finishes smoothly and hugely bitter. Extremely pleasant to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 2/23/13
Aroma: The nose has citrus and floral hops with some bready malts
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange with an off-white head and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste has a citrusy sweetness and a light-medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall, this is an okay example of the style, but not an impressive one. The hops feel a little bit too subdued. There really just isnít enough going on here.
