3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear light amber with a slight beige head. Aroma just about suggests cat pee. Med body. Thereís a lot of caramel for backbone, but itís just about overwhelmed by a complex and strong mix of hop. Iím voting for at least resin and grapefruit rind. But I think thereís some floral mixed in. This is pretty hoppy stuff for a Right Coast IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear orange color with a tall off-white head. The nose is grassy and a touch vegetal. Not off to a good start. Some sweet malt in the form of bread and toffee. Light citrus peel on the finish. The flavor is also somewhat vegetal and grassy. Fairly bitter, a touch of metal, and some bread. Straw, light toffee, and some toasted malt. Really just an unimpressive hop profile and beer.
