3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a clear bright golden orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Aroma is fresh, musty hops. Oranges, tropical fruit, and some pine. Taste is pretty solid. Light sweetness and a strong bitterness. Hops are fresh and fruity, very light malt taste too. Dry finish. Medium body with a fizzy carbonation. Overall, pretty decent but nothing special here. I bought this because I love the label.

Draft on tap at the Milwaukee Avenue Brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a pretty transparent well carbonated golden hue, touches of orange glow, a bit of dullness in parts. Frothy whitish head atop stays as a mellow layer, laces ok. Lively carbonation, faint hop haze. Aromas are melon, some gentle yet growing fruit, touches of citrus, florals. A more earthy hop, slightly spritzy bibe catches me as it warms more, Bready malts, a bit of fruit, that sweet gumball element. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, firm melon and gumball, good bit oif sweeter fruit, tropical fruit elements hit. Medium bitterness, florals, some more gumball and a bit of pineapple. Bit of lemon, florals, grass. Some bready malt backbone, touches of bitterness, more lemons and florals start to take off. Bread, grass, lingering lemon and earth. A touch of spice, dryness as we round the corner. Fruity sweetness feel still keeps on trucking, really hangs on with melon and tropical fruit. Finish is more dry, grainy, mellow to decent hop presence. Some deecent florals but lacks that bitter bite. The front end seemed to promise a lot but that big bitter backend and finish never really came for me. Ok. Prefer Galaxy and Regular more.

Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; light for an IPA though. A transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of bitter hops with some citrus too. Tastes like it smells with a good, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

Pours yellow with a white head that quickly fades into a nice lacing.
Smells of grassy hops slightly citrus.
Taste is definitely grassy dry. Flavor lacks.
Pales compares to Galaxy Hero.

Hazy straw color with a finger of pure white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is all citrus and hops. Very pungent grapefruit and bitter hops. Mouth is very bitter. A lot of hops going on here, but thatís about it. The citrus is not nearly as strong as it is on the nose. Pretty simple hop heads delight. I was expecting a lot more from the rave reviews I got personally.

Crystal clear golden pour with a thin white head. Citrus nose. Hints of pine and grass. Very fresh. Taste is bursting with citrus. Juicy fruit but very clean. This tastes very fresh. The hops arenít really balanced with much, but this is still pretty tasty. Good medium mouth, but the looks of this one leave one to question what beer this really is.
