An okay crisp brew. Has a bit of a nice spice taste blended with the hops, smooth aftertaste with standard bitter hop flavor.

Bomber. Pours an average, foamy, light tan head. Clear, amber body. Citrus and pine nose with some sticky crystal. More fruit in the flavor - pear and white grape accompany the suspected pine and grapefruit. More sweet crystal malt. Medium-full body with a sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Detracting. Lingering hop flavor with a bitter finish. Pretty good, but the mouthfeel really dragged it down for me.

Bomber. Pours a pretty reddish color with a big frothy head and aromas of pine and herbal hops. Flavor is pretty similar. A toffee/caramel malt presence balanced against an English hoppiness. Pretty light and crisp, but not that compelling as far as I’m concerned.
