Bottle from Olive Tree Market: Aroma is loud with a strong delivery of green oily hops that bring out scents of pine, citrus fruit and light dashes of spice. Appeared a brassy copper color topped with a thick lather of foam head. The drink is heavy with a puckering taste of intensely bitter hops that also gives off a bit of a metallic finish.

On tap. Hazy orange-amber with a lasting covering of creamy roam. Aroma is pineapple, toffee, resin, evergreen and dank herb. Tastes of a great blend of the same. Medium body is well balanced, has low-average carbonation and is dangerously sessionable with no hint of the abv.

The good: inviting citrus-hop aroma; classic pour with a nice head and copper color; substantial mouthfeel; taste begins with good malty backbone. The "it depends on what you're looking for": bitter bomb extraordinaire, coming on soon after the first sip, and not letting go. If you want bitter, this is your beer! I find it just a bit unbalanced, tho: bitter is good, but it shouldn't be 98% of the beer.

Väldigt väldigt fruktig upplevde jag. Fint hantverk där den kraftig beskan fångas upp. Lagom kolsyrad.

Den här ölen hade en arom som var alldeles ljuvlig. Smaken bar toner av grapefrukt, druva, passionsfrukt, kroppen var stabil och balansen närvarande.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma of mild roast caramel with some brown sugar, fruit and citrus. Med body or better. Flavor is pretty floral/citrus hoppy. Might be a touch of diacetyl. Mostly fruity. Hint of burnt rubber. Nope, that’s my hand. Ah well. This is a very smooth and hoppy beer. Extremely tasty.

Bomber from Valley Farm. Moderately hopped nose. Sweet and sticky. Quite bitter. Citric bitterness throughout. Quite slick and syrupy. Solid malt base and a good hop flavor. Good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a amber orange with a nice off white head which fades to decent lacing. Aroma is of pine resin, citrus, some sweet malts, and some caramel malts. Taste is of pine, spruce, orange and grapefruit, a little tropical fruit, sweet malts, some caramel, and a little noticeable alcohol. Has a medium full body with a slightly creamy but also slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, bitter, somewhat boozy finish. overall, a ok DIPA that might be a tad to sweet, needs more body, and needs to mask its 9% abv a little better.
