On tap at Stubbys. Cara-amber with a slowly evaporating tan head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, peaches, fruit, citrus and alcohol. Taste is big with booze, fruits, citrus, oak, light vanilla and a high alpha acid finish. Nice.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bomber from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours a very clear orange with a white head leaving many spots of lace. Aroma has heavy vanilla and citrus, with pine and toffee. Taste is of sweet vanilla, oranges, spicy pine, a nice woody backbone and a very solid caramel malt base. A terrific balanced blend. A bit alcoholly. Medium to full bodied and dry, but slightly syrupy. Finishes bittersweet with a good blend of the two, and spicy earthy dry. The original was over fruity and sticky, and the oak version mellows that while actually adding components and -- never thought would be said about an oaked IPA -- is superior to the original.

This is awesome. Great vanilla and hop aromas and flavors. I wish more breweries would age IPAs in barrels. The sweet vanilla and oak compliment the hops nicely.

PhilJackson80 (294) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to light amber color with a medium white head. The aroma has citrus, pine & some oak in the background. The taste has a medium body with a very slight bitter finish. The oak definitely comes on the back end & is balanced very well. Overall a very good DIPA.

If an onion bomb is aged in oak barrels, does it taste any better? Not particularly, Pours honey clear gold. Sweet and citrusy scent. Taste is a nondescript bitterness with earthiness added. Light medium and bubbly mouthfeel. Draft - Brick Store - Decatur, GA

Bomber. Dark amber with a off-white head. Grassy, herbal, light oak, and piney hop. Taste is bitter, but not overly. Medium body with a soapy feel. Unearthly seems ironic as it has an earthy/plant like flavor.

22 oz bottle for 8.50. I got the last one so it must be my lucky day. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a white head. Aroma is malts with a slight citrus hop in there as well at the end. Taste is wood, floral hops and only slightly malty. Spicy on the end with no lingering bitterness. Very complex IPA. Medium body, average carbonation. I’ve never had an oak-aged beer before but this is a great IPA. Not 11% like the description suggests. My bottle says 9.5%.
