3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Funky but subdued hop aroma on pouring. Lighter yellow gold than many other IPA’s. Tastes very citrus and floral with a solid biscuity malt. Finished well but not as great as some of the other IPA’s I’ve been sampling recently.

A solid IPA. I don’t know if it’s just the name, but it seems best for winter consumption. And the label is hilarious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours a hazy straw gold body with a lavish almond head. Aroma has citrusy grapefruit and orange with toasty caramel tones. Creamy medium body supports a solid honey caramel malt backbone. Hops overshadow the malt, with assertive grapefruit, pine, and grassy bitterness. Some Pacman yeast twang underneath. A solid IPA.

Aroma of fresh celery. Tall white head. Very bitter and hoppy. Well balanced. I like it. Amarillo Hops dominate the palate. Not a bad IPA, not great either.

Pretty tasty. Definitely looks like pee! Flavor is hops all over the place from start to a slightly astringent finish. Pretty tasty all around. Very fresh flavors dominate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a sticky white head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus all over the place with honey and soft fruit. Tastes hoppy, bright and fresh. There is an earthy (almost celery like) mid palate. Honey and soft fruit and loads of grapefruit. Mouth feel is almost chewy... But in a good way. Nice IPA!
