3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Poured amber-golden/orange with a moderate forming off-white head. Nice retention. Hops on the nose that came off earthy, herbal, and vegetal like. Hops offered a nice spice here, somewhat resinous but mostly vegetal and earthy. Not floral and perfumy. Some bitterness and bread-like malt tones and some sweetness considering the high abv. Wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one, but I’d buy it again.

Very unusual beer. Appearance is more like a pilsner, bright and bubbly. Hops are subdued on the nose, alcohol very well hidden in taste. I really enjoyed it!

A new realm in IPA's.. Big, rich and full bodied. Layers of florals, orange citrus, honey and sweet bread. Aromas and flavors truly reminiscent of jasmine tea with honey... Seriously! Balanced bitterness, which compliments the sweet malt backbone. Very enjoyable. A must try.

Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of snappy, herbal hops and pale malts. The taste is spicy, herbal, fruity hops, toasted caramel malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Solid beer.

Sweet and smooth with flavors of peaches, hops, caramel, booze, and citrus. Very sweet yet hoppy finish. I like, but it is boozy- be prepared!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not much more to say on this one, one smooth double IPA. Buttery, velvety texture and taste. Malt comes through, not covered by, but in concert with the hops. Very well done indeed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a clear light orange-yellow color with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Interesting aroma. Musty and very floral, lots of lemon, some orange and grapefruit, and biscuit malt. Taste is intense. Moderate sweetness and very strong bitterness. Flowers and citrus fruit mostly but the bitterness overpowers a bit. Very dry finish. Overall, it’s like an extremely bitter imperial pilsner. Good DIPA but too bitter and dry.

Golden orange pour with a fluffy white head. A nice citrus, lemon zest, and some doughy yeast. Nice and spicy earthy hops with a nice citrus and dry finish. Pretty tasty brew.

On tap at TAPS in Petaluma. Pours even gold with a white head. Strange lactose aroma with strawberry cheesecake notes. Flavor bears it out, crazy fruitiness and a sort of milky body. There are more typical IPA notes too, bitter piney resin especially. Strange beer but I kinda like it.
