Hazy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Massive citrus and pine hop nose, quite nice. Big beer with a strong malt presence with a ton of hop character. Some citrus and pine warming in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber, 2015 vintage. Tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma with slight pine resiny hops and a bit of booze. Pours amber-orange colored with a large off-white head with moderate retention and lacing. Starts with tropical fruit and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with bitter pine resiny hops and a little bit of an alcohol burn. Pretty good, but the booze in the finish is not something you expect from an IPA and doesn't fit in the overall flavor profile.

Poured an orange color with aromas of citrus, hops, light pine and some malt. Flavors were fresh citrus and subtle pine with light malt. A solid beer that was enjoyable in the heat, I could drink a lot of these with out too much complaints.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice combination of moderately sweet malt and fresh citrus hops. A little hint of pine and other fruits round out the nose. The flavor has a wonderful balance to it. A nice caramel and crystal malt base works in combination with the citrus flavors that leads to a nice hoppy bitter finish. Medium/full bodied IIPA.
