Strong hop aroma. Full malt body, infused with super fresh hops, which are citrus forward with some pine. Bitterness in just the right amount; this is not a hop bomb. Perfectly balanced, and recommended! A-

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy dark orange with bright golden bronze edges. Dense creamy tan head that doesnt hang around forever. Loose stringy lace. Enormous sweet orange and orange rind nose, tangerines and grapefruits. Intensely fruity. Hop showcase. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with sparkling fruit notes all over. Balanced, harmonious, and distinctly powerful. Beautifully done.

This beer is hoppy...a bit more so than I normally prefer, but unlike some other high hop beers that I have drank, this one began to grow on me. My wife surprised me with a growler of it, and I wasn’t sure I would finish it...that is not going to be a problem.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Strong citrus aroma with a hint of caramel. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is astringent citrus with a decent caramel backdrop. Maybe some resin. There is a mild hop burn that builds. It’s really not far from a DIPA, flavorwise. Very, very nice ale.

Big citra hop bubble gum nose, pale malt sweetness, a little crackery malt. Golden orange pour, nice head and lace. Flavors of citrus hops, nice and tropical bubblegum, crackery malt a little sweetness. Nice citra finish. Good shit manne! You could probably put citra hops in poop and I would like it.

Bomber. Maybe I’m a little stuffed up but I can’t pull much off the nose. A little pine and caramel. Flavor takes a little while to adjust to. Super earthy, piney, almost nutty/peanut buttery hop flavor. Pretty stiff bready malts. Flavor is just deliciously balanced and hoppy without a bunch of bitterness. The mouthfeel is exquisite. Creamy and smooth. Highly recommended.

Tap @ Saraveza... Poured pale, golden/orange with a thin, retaining head. Nose had dandy, strong citrus hop tones. Those same hop tones came through in the flavor. The citrus was the highlight here. Resinous earthy spices tones along with pine and vibrant yeast esters. Quite nice. Lots of hop flavor and well balanced without a whole lot of bitterness.
