On tap at Rough Draft. Fruity herbal spicy citrus with a bit more malt than other offerings. Very well executed. Not my favorite hop line-up but it does what itís supposed to do.

Bottled. Rating number 9; for some reason I canít help but think of the White Album. Pours dark golden with a lofty white cap of foam that lasts. Aroma of pine sap and a bit of grapefruit. For some reason I get a hint of metal. Well-balanced flavor of smoky malt, grapefruit, orange citrus and cut grass. Finish round out well. Slight bit of vegetable underneath. Enjoyable.

22oz bottle picked up at Bevmo
Pours slightly cloudy dark golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, dusty and pine. Flavor is floral, citrus, caramel with a bitter dry finish
Decent

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear light copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is perfumey floral. Maybe a touch of melon. Med body or better. Flavor is very floral, with some burning hop. Citrus and melon. Must be other things, but itís all rather mixed. Hop burn moderates, flavors smooth out. Light toasty malt backbone is apparent. Itís a wonderfully made ale.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bomber from Valley Farm. Medium amber in color. Nice fruity hop nose to it, with a little sweetness. Good hop bitterness up front. A touch of earthiness, finished off by a good dose of grapefruit peel.

Amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is citrus, tropical, mango, light caramel, fairly fruity. Medium bodied, moderate to low bitterness, smooth mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

Rating #900n Bottle from a trade with Dave. Thanks bud! Pours a deep bronze, clear, with a big fluffy cream colored head. Strong bready malts undertone some lightly piney and very earthy dank hops. Flavor is big on the bready malts, some fruits, a bit of grassy pine on the finish. Drinks pretty easy, resinous, with medium carbonation. This is a nice sweet fruity bready IPA that is nice drinking...while on the malty side and more toward the APA category, I would happily drink this again.

(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a medium white head. Aroma of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavor of pineapple, light passion fruit, mango, citrus, tangerine, and caramel with a dry, moderately bitter finish.

Growler (from Whole Foods Chandler, AZ) opened and poured with a bouquet of aromatic citrus that billowed out of the growler and glass. It has a clear deep copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma erupts with grapefruit and tangerine notes backed up by just noticeable sweet maltiness. Towards the end of the draw a bit of mango tropical fruit is noticed. The taste begins with a firm degree of citrus hop bitterness that tries hard to stay ahead of the lightly malt sweetened citrus hop flavor. It goes back and forth between grapefruit, orange, clementine and tangerine and then ending with a sweet sliver of mango that tries to edge in amongst the largely bitter citrus hops. Darn nice IPA. Wow.
