4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle to aroma to palate to taste to finish, this brew is world class. Grassy pine citrus aroma. Firm crisp palate, hoppy bitterness with a great malt balance. Finishes crisp and hop floral notes carry through and leads you to drink more. Classic!

Full bodied as advertise poured in sniffer and the head was pretty much non existent after a few moments. High alcohol pretty well hidden. taste of ripened fruit just the right amount of bitterness. Finish is better then the start.

Pours a thin head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is ripe dark fruits.
The taste starts with fruit sweetness, then boozy sweet and finishes with a mild bitter note.
The texture is thicker.
A bit sweet for me but fine.

(En fût à la brasserie): Une légère invasion de diacétyl en entrée et une avalanche d’agrumes immédiatement ensuite. Des phénols et autres esters ferreux n’aident en rien la présence d’alcool. Décevant.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
The ONLY good things about this beer were that A. It looked great in the glass with a large very long lived head and decent lacing and B. I got this on sale for $3 a bomber. The rest is all down hill. It smelled like flowers and old cereal. Tasted like sucking on a flower petal. Was watery with a way too dry long bitter finish almost like aspirin. Slammed a couple big mouthfuls followed by a shot of Fireball to kill the taste. The rest was DRAIN POUR!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruddy orange with a huge head like sponge cake that takes a very long time to reduce. Smell is tangy and subtle. Ale is rich and spicy with a citrusy malt backbone. Palate is slightly flat.

From the bomber this is the ex-pa not an ipa and I could tell, not a lot of spices but really strong and chunky like a bread dumpling covered in gravy that gives you a buzz.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bomber from Bev Mo. Very interesting hop biscuit aroma. Earthy noble type hop aroma, pretty big. Additionally a mild macadamia nut biscuit malt back ground. The malts really pick up in flavor with a crisp slight alcohol finish. Defiantly unique, I loved it some friends do not.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mine must be old - bomber from Kenwood Liquor on Oak Lawn, IL. Huge white/tan head. Aroma is sour orange. Taste is citrus bitter that is too astringent and has no malt to balance it. Palate is super-carbonated, super-dry and a bit watery. Oh well, I decided to give this a try blind, and it turned out to be an excellent beer if not old or ruined in some way.
