3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The creamy texture of this beer is the best part. Bomber from Charles St. in Boston. Aroma and flavor are surprisingly more subdued than I thought they would be. Expected a more agressive bitterness, piny characteristic and floral/citrus aspects. Instead, I got a very balanced beer. Malt is very pronounced, with a slightly sweet honeydew character. The hops are definitely there with light pineapple, apricot and tangerine notes, but a very soft bitterness. Excellent, but not what I was looking for. Would drink it any time, anywhere.

Couleur proche de la High Tide. Nez très expressif, sur les agrumes et les fruits exotiques (mangue, ananas, fruits de la passion, litchi...). La bouche est excellente elle aussi, vraiment ce qui se fait de mieux comme IPA, résineuse mais pas trop asséchante, très éxubérante, d’une longueur incroyable. Les 7% donnent un produit plus frais que la Mongo, plus facile à boire et en même temps la bière garde tous ces arômes.

bomber from costco goleta, ca. a nice grapefruit aroma upon opening. does not rise to the level of great ipas though. the aftertaste is a bit of an unpleasant oily hop residue. not bad, but not great. Maybe it spent too much time in the Costco Warehouse.

Cloudy gold with a solid thick quilt of marshmallow foam. Smells of grapefruit, resin, plastic, sage, lemons. Taste of bitter hops, some biscuit malts, some grapefruit, some resin and a little alcohol. Medium on full bodied with tight and moderate carb with an off dry finish. Quality beer, wish it could show up more often in my area, and fresh.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
hazy yellow colour, huge, extremely long lasting dense off-white head; perfect aroma of pine resin, grapefruit, hints of honey, earthy yeast and slight alcoholic notes; taste of intensive hoppyness: pine resin, citrussy notes and huge amount of bitterness; though bitterness is really significant, maltyness is also present; excellent IPA, one of the best, I’ve ever tasted
