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!

Initial smell is that of an old book....Strange thats not the first time Ive used that for an IPA. Maybe a slight chemical or phenol smell. Very nice coppery color, big ass two finger head. Pretty nice floral bitter taste, with some spice thrown in. The Amarillo hops get me every time...I should know by now to expect the old book and soap smell. Pretty honest IPA.....not bad.

Faint cloudy to the golden - light laced head. Very light aroma considering the assalt that follows. I’m an Amarillo sucker so while I love the almost insane orange pith flavour and dirty cracked pepper bitterness I just feel that it’s a bit out of whack. Bounces around like a seismograph on a pogo stick.
