Oniony aroma. Grapy. Flavor has more onion. And seems New Zealandy more than German, but I can see some German character as well. Other than that, it's a Stone DIPA.

Pour is a clear blonde with a large white head. Aroma is a spicy hop with a lot of pine. Flavor is a nice hop with some sweetness followed by a big bitterness. I don’t really get any pils malt or noble hops, it’s just a pretty much in your face sweet hop bomb. Drinks more like a 5% IPA then the 9.5% so this could be a black out beer.

Pours gold. Head is frothy white. Nose is complex sweet citrus, sticky sweet malts, floral and citrus. Flavor is muted floral and light citrus, intense bitterness like you would suspect with stone. pretty good but very different.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, floral notes, grass, and a touch of pepper. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two tinger off-white head that has decent retention. There is a good amount of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate pilsner malt, light honey, and a touch of fruit. The finish has moderate-heavy pine, floral notes, grass, light grapefruit, and a touch of pepper. it’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, it’s like a blend of an Imperail Pilsner and IIPA,

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light copper with medium sized off white head. Nose is citrus and hops...good aroma that you can catch from a few feet away. Flavor is initially very piney, resin, before a burst of citrus followed by a drier hoppiness (probably the nobles kicking in). Long mouthfeel.

Bomber from BevMo. Deep golden in color. Somewhat hoppy nose. Grains and maltiness as well. Grassy hop character up front. Hoppiness is somewhat mellow, yet sill there. Interesting take.
