Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a clear orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and grapefruit. Medium mouth with strong pine, juicy hop, light bitterness, very nice.

Pour from a 22 oz. bottle, basically the last couple ounces. Pours a hazy gold color with a white head. Lots of big, sweet and slightly bitter citrus in this one - orange, grapefruit, lemon - with pine resin, honey, caramel, grass, and some fresh herbs and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a resinous mouthfeel. I need to try more of this one, because what was there was so promising. Really tasty IPA.

Bomber. Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Super rich tropical fruit - thank you Mosaic hops for rocking so hard. Maybe a hint of pine. Awesome!

gold/orange pour, baby finger of head. Big hoppy aroma, mango, citrus fruit. Nice citrus profile, mango, peach, grapefruit. Honey sweetness comes through in the finish. Medium body.
Big thanks to Leo for bringing this one by!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Binny’s poured into tulip. Pours a rich gold color with thick white head. Leaves a nice lacing. Aroma - bright citrus, honey, touch of pine. Taste - while still a lot of citrus, more resin and pine on palate, touch of honey, malty middle, then a moderately bitter finish. Nice prickly carbonation and a moderately long finish with a bit of alcohol burn at the very end and warms the stomach. Very similar to a Hopslam but a bit rough on the edges. Still one of the better new IIPA’s I’ve had in a while.

One of the better iPas I have had. Super citruscy and bitter. Pours a cloudy orange on color. Easy to drink and smells like grapefruit. Had at bad apple.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
pour from a 22oz. Very good hop aroma with just a bit of sweetness on the nose. Thin white head with a clear golden color. Went in with high expectations from buddies that have had this before. It didn’t disappoint. You can pick up on the honey, but the star is still the hops. Dank hops with big grapefruit. A great collaboration with 4 Hands. Will seek this out again.

Bomber shared by Bill at guidos ulgy sweater party. Huge citrius aroma, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is a citrius explosion, no real bittterness, smooth finish. Unlike most other pw dipas this one lacks the overly sweet malty back end which is usually my one complaint. This is very good, 2nd only to their original NvU.
