Bomber from Total Wine Manassas. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malt, floral hops with a bit of citrus. The taste is caramel malt, herbal hops. Medium bodied, low carbonation, really not hoppy at all for a DIPA.

12 ounce bottle pours an orange copper color with minimal off-white head that dissipates quickly. Some minor citrus and resin aromas not extremely impressive nose. Strong malt backbone with a bit of an earthy flavor along with some pine. Just ok.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy copper under a thick rocky off-ivory head. Big nose of caratoffee and lovely floral hop notes. Big fat flavor of chewy toffee and granola, and something like pecans and a little kiss of coffee. The hop flavor isnít too sharp or bitter, but just right and balancing, without too much to distract from the sweet toffee body. Almost like English toffee pudding with a punch of earthy semi bitterness.
