Bomber pour.starts golden ends hazy brown fire to sludge in bottom of glass (bottle had been in fridge 2-3 months?). Sweet candy like nose with a touch of bitters. Predominately fruit flavor (watermelon? Papaya?) With a floral after taste.finished a bit bitter, fresh hops, nice classic IPA style.

Bomber from a BA trade (I think). Thanks! Very nice, balanced DIPA that’s English style with a bright floral bouquet and a truly rich, complex, caramelly malt base that works really well. Perhaps just a bit sticky here and there but overall well done.

Surprisingly good beer here. Great robust malt profile with sweetness and smokeyness thats very nice. Hops are prevalent and quite floral/citrus and bitter. Nice stuff.

these I usually dont like but this one is very well made. Roasty malty flavors and a strong even bittering. One of the best british ipas.

500ml bottle in a glass. Pours cloudy amber with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrusy hops, and a hint of tin. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a terrible beer, but not good for the style.

Growler from the brewery. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of resiny hops, some sweet citrus, pine, peppery. Tastes of resiny hops, sticky sweet with a light bitter finish.
