Bomber (12/21) - Deep gold pour with average head. Has an aroma that hits you in the face from a distance. Superb hoppy flavors of orange and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel and not too dry. Would love to have another but glad I got to have one!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5-17-13. Obviously I know this is past it’s "enjoy by" date, however I wanted to see how it fared. Pours a lovely gold with big craggy white head. Aromas are SUPER citrus hops and some grass with just a hint of tropical fruit sweetness. Flavors are just like the nose though there is a line of striking bitterness right in the mid-palate but it fades and this beer gets back on course. Palate is perfect, not too heavy for this big beer and it feels much more quaff-abale than one would imagine. Overall, this was amazing when it was fresh. Probably 4.5+ especially on draft. It has faded just a little but what put me off the most was the very sharp bitter flavor, but even then it was still super drinkable. The best about the Enjoy By series, they have improved this beer with every release and this was the best to date, if they make improvements on the next one look out Pliny, Heady, and Kern cause this is coming for your spots.

Had it on tap at Quenchers in Logan Square Chicago. Poured a hazy orange color with a thin head and uneven lacing. The aroma is a thunder bolt from Zeus, hop floral goodness. And the taste is hop euphoria, be careful, it’s a 9.5

On tap at Pracna. Dark copper color. Very fresh and sort of a wet-hop quality to the beer. Tons of hops, flowers and a little pine. It is sweet and there is a lot of malt in here, but the hops are more prominent. Great beer.
