BBB63 (5746) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bomber bottle, pours a clean golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and very good lacework upon the glassware. The aroma has big citrus and tropical fruit esters along with light dankness and resiny notes. Minerally earthiness along with fresh bready grains as well. The taste is uber balanced with brash bitterness countered by fair handed maltiness supported by some spicy and earthy notes. Lively mouth feel with some metallic notes, not overly aggressive nor sharp. The finish is indeed dry but a tad short for my only bitch about this. This exceeded my expectations since many of the styled new hop breed IPA are one-note or just too high alpha. This is takes me to the cliff edge but does not push me over. Mikey Likey and I hope Eric does too.

Crystal clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of passion fruit, mango, other sweet tropical fruits. Tastes is slightly bitter citrus which gives way to the sweet tropical fruits of the aroma. Very light mouth feel. This is a very crisp, drinkable ipa.

maxcoinage (26) - Wauconda, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Poured from 22oz bomber into imperial pint glass with a nice 2 inch head color is a nice golden delicious looking brew. Aroma is fantastic I absolutely love it (galaxy hop!?!) Itís a lovely floral and citrus smell. Mouthfeel is medium carb and body is medium-light Taste is a bit of piney, resinous hops with a crisp, slightly bitter finish that lingers for a bit. Overall this is a solid IPA. The aroma really had my hopes up but taste didnít match, but still really enjoying it. Not sure id buy another bomber as a beer really needs to be outstanding to warrant buying at bomber price

Narnad (1417) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours a very clean, golden color with a modest amount of carbonation and a tall, well retained, dense, white creamy head. Aroma is grapefruit and pineapple in the nose with a light touch of pine. Malt takes a back seat but provides a mild clean sweetness. Flavor is fantastic with an overall balance flavor. Notes of grapefruit and a light mango are the most prevalent of the hops flavors with a light biscuit and sweet malt through the entire tasting. Body is light/modest and perfect for the flavors. The carbonation helps to bring a light crisp, dryness to the beer which compliments the hops perfectly. Overall a great beer! The lightness to it really makes it a great warm weather pick up.

Bottle from TheAlum, pale golden pour with minimal head. Big danky/piney scents with some citrus in the back. Taste is citrus and a lot of pine, great blend, nice and sweet, great finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it out of a bomber, poured a solid orange hue with a thin head and uneven lacing with a solid hop aroma with hints of grapefruit. It has a bold IPA taste with an underlying citrus flavor.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bomber from Binnyís Des Plaines. Pours dark golden with white head. Aromas of juicy citrus, pineapple, mango, and resiny hops. Flavors of bright tropical fruit with pineapple and orange with nice hop bitterness and enough malt backbone to keep it honest. Great fresh IPA. Gotta love galaxy hops.

I tried this beer at Revolutionís Brew Pub, and loved it. I think its a Hoopier version of the anti-hero. Instant Classic
