750ml bottle poured into snifter. Nice pleasant aroma of hops, citrus and slight grapefruit. Flavor is mostly with a nice malt backing. Don’t need to say too much, it’s just a good solid IPA.

Bottle. Pours a little more on the red side than the regular ipa. Aroma is a little more subtle than the original, but better in a way. The taste is super smooth with no bitterness. Overall they nailed this, and imo better than the original.

Murky orange color out of the bottle. Thin off white slick on the top of this beer. Hop resin nose. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Lots of hop resin, grapefruit rind, tangerine, marmalade, and fresh bread. Alcohol is well hidden. Solid iipa.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Frank Smith’s. Pours turbid ruddy orange with 1-finger well-laced white head. Nose is huge resiny hops, tropical fruit including pineapple, tangerine, honeydew, mango, huge black pepper, Tastes rich, very complex, with big notes of resiny hops, tangerine, black pepper, mango, melon, and a rich hoppy finish. This one seems a bit less palate busting than the original, but that doesn’t make it any less dense. The Citra really shines through in this one.

The aroma is very hoppy and caramel like with pine, citrus, and pineapple. The appearance is copper with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a very good IIPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden amber with a foamy off-white head and lacing. It has an intense resin nose, with a bit of grapefruit and other citrus. The flavor is all resin and pine up front, with a more citrusy middle and a long, bitter finish. Not quite as drinkable as I was expecting, but definitely interesting.
