Pretty good stuff. Lots of sweet maltiness right when you take a sip which turns into a nice hoppy, fresh grapefruit taste. Lots of citrus. I got some awesome tropical notes as it warmed up which was cool. It like almost became a totally new beer. Really good stuff.

A nice but not exceptional imperial IPA. Pours U Texas orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Lots of resin and grapefruit flavors. Faint boozy background and a sharp hop kick in the finish. Solid.

Bomber from Craft Beer Base. Slightly opaque gold, small white head. Aroma has lots of pine hops and malty resin. Flavour starts with super bitter hops, a bit of malts and a long bitter finish.

Bomber pours a hazy orange with a big creamy off-white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is full of pine resin and grapefruit with some bready malts present as well. Taste is bitter but not over-the-top. The malts provide some sweetness in the middle before a long, slightly boozy and somewhat bitter finish. Body is medium to full with an almost creamy mouthfeel, due to below-average carbonation. I definitely prefer this to the regular Big Daddy IPA. It’s an IIPA I’ll gladly try again.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!
