20100515 Sampled at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Spring Gathering. Bomber from Honeygo. Surprisingly and probably unnecessarily big beer if they’re going to call it an IPA, but whatever it was plenty decent, nice and roasty, pretty sweet throughout but finishing hot and alcohol dry. Some lingering resinous bitterness.

a bit too strong where they need more flavor. the malts are a strong yet astringent it and the hops are notice yet not anything special for this type of beer. it has a sweet flavor of chocolate malts but the hoppiness brings a great amount of palate fatigue.

Pours dark black with a tan head. Smell is more of roasted malt like a stout rather than hoppy like a dark IPA, which this claims to be. Taste confirms this, but it does have some bitterness to it like an IPA. Very rich beer with a creamy texture and low carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall a good beer but not what I expected - drinks more like an imperial stout than an IPA
