Bottle from brewpub shared at Octobr Houston tasting.br>Pours a thick amber with a watery strawberry/grapefruit aroma. Flavor is stingy-thin grapefruit and rose. Average mouthfeel. Too approachable for me.

bomber shared by KAggie at October Houston Tasting. Pours a cloudy go0lden with a white head. Nose is grassy and fruity. Taste is citrus fruit and grass. Mouthfeel is medium, but not bitter enough. Disappointing IPA. Maybe it’s old.

Bomber via trade with thickfreakness, thank you Charles. Pours copper orange with flecks of sediment as wel as a 3 finger tan head. Nose is extremely hoppy with lots of pine and citrus. Touches of orange, grapefruit, and restrained bitterness. Taste is citrussy with a nice malt back end. I really like big citrus IPAs and his has a lot going for it. Overall a damn tasty interesting IPA.

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Pours golden with a slight haze and a nice white head. Aroma is huge grassy, floral, pine, pears and some toasty malt. Flavor is a lot of bitter, green hops, almost astringent with some notes of pine and tropical fruit. Sort of just like green hop juice with some slight toasty malt. Body is a bit on the thin side but its not bad. A little too astringent green hop flavor for me but its ok for a local IPA.

bleeng (1474) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Rerate: Bomber. Dark, hazy creamy head. Nice fresh hop nose. Mild but very drinkable and some nice malt undertones. Good beer. On tap at NWXW. A bit cold. Nice dark brown coloring with a creamy white head. Huge hoppy nose but a bit medicinal. Flavoring is very bitter and sharp but very drinkable. Good thick body with lasting flavors. Good IPA.

fiver29 (1025) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Miketd. Pours a hazy orange color with a off white head. Head lasted a little while. Had a nice hop aroma with some sweetness. Taste was hoppy smooth, grapefruit, and was refreshing. Was nice palate cleanser after drining a imperial stout before eating a big fat steak. Overall I enjoyed this brew and would have it on hand if locally available.

Bottle. Thanks to Fly for sending me this one. Poured a nice hazy, cloudy orange body with an intresting size head. The head started to form geometrical shapes similar to Chouffee Houblon, funny because this one was refriged for over a month. Aroma is light hops, citrus, caramel and an odd similarity to Brett. Flavor is bitter, light lemon citrus and aggressive hops. Not bad.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Thanks lb4b. Hazy yellow/orange with medium white head. Aroma is very muted and not much going on. Flavor is some grapefruit, bready malts, and just a pale maltiness. Medium bodied and lively carbonation but itís almost like they filtered it to hell and back, just nothing going on. Smooth and doesnít taste but itís just not exciting.
