I was impressed with the balance of this beer, quite floral and hoppy, with the bitterness complemented by noticeable malts. creamy tan head and quite lacy, with a nice golden color. suprisingly smooth on the palate, considering the amount of hops crammed into this brew. like a pine-forest with a citrus finish.

bomber from Saarlander, thanks Aaron. as expected a big floral & pine nose. appearance is a clear light amber with a short lived head and some spotty lace. flavor is all about the hops with some sweet malt just lurking around in the background. while very drinkable, the blend of hops seemed to be fighting against one another. the intent may have been to add complexity, but in the end, it seemed a bit muddled.

Medium sized tan head, retention is very good with loads of sticky lace hangin around. Hazy, apple juice/orange colored brew. Lucious nose of fruity hops, spices, citrus with juicey melony notes, a touch resiny and herbally, ahhhh. Body is med/light, crisp, lightly resiny and surprisingly brisk! Just a ton of tastey hops, citrusy, fruity and extremely aggressive, a bit sappy, resiny and fresh, tropical and lush. There,s malt in there but it,s mostly buried. Dry, blitzing hop finish, gorgeous! Killer quaff! Props to FlacoAlto for this amazingly tastey brew!

22 oz bomber pours an amber body with a large and creamy offwhite head. Good retention and lots of clumpy lacing. Fruity hops nose of grapefruit and orange with a kiss of pine. Active carbonation, medium body and a hops bite on the tongue. Dry and bitter taste, hop driven. Grapefruit, pine, and rind, with a note of orange. Somewhat harsh with hops overload. Very westcoast IPA.

Bottle from Naven. Hazy, orange, amber color. Smell of hops, pine, grapefruit, spicey peppers, caramel, flowers, malt and orange peal. Tastes the same but better. Wow! What a nice ballance of the different hops. I love this one!

Draught @ Pizza Port, San Clemente. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head. Malty hoppy grapefruit aroma. Sweet malty hoppy flavor with hints of grapefruit and pine needles. Dry hoppy bitter finish.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Huge thanks to Dickinsonbeer for this one. Pours hazy deep coppery with 2-finger off-white head and tons of lacing. Aroma is huge resiny hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, big black pepper. The taste is very hoppy with a firm caramel malt base, and notes of grapefruit, mango, tangerine, honeydew, black pepper. Rich, complex, very well balanced mouthfeel that gets a tiny bit hot at the finish, and even more black peppery. This one is a benchmark IPA.

Bomber in a chilled pint glass. Poured a caramel brown with a thick white frothy head. Smell of lemon. A good solid IPA from Pizza Port.

Bomber thanks to Dirti_Martini, nice choice as an extra! Poured a clear orange/amber body with hugh head that settled down to a nice ring small head aroung the glass. Aroma is of hops - very subtle but with a pleasant smell of citrus. Flavor was smooth with a nice hop flavor packed in. Again the citrus with a small amount of malt in the flavor. Aftertaste was great - a little sticky with a piney/grassy essence. Good IPA. Cap had a price sticker of $3.69, wish I couold get it in my area for that cheap of price!

Pours bright, dark amber into a shaker. Tan head quickly conglomerates on surface. Grapefruit and resin aromas. Upfront slick caramel with a crips to lasting, bitter pine and grapefruit finish.
