4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy - it smells exactly like a fresh-cut pine tree and has just a touch of sour citrus. It pours a lovely clear golden amber with a decent and fairly persistent creamy off-white head. Flavor is like a liquid pine tree - this is definitely a must for hop fanatics! For all the hoppy flavor, though, it is only a little bit bitter and has a nice fruity undertone that has grapefruit and apple components. Texture is nice and ragged, quite fizzy, leaving behind a firm tingle and a hoppy, slightly fruity finish. Look for this one!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep orange brew pours out and throws up a tall, creamy off-white head.
The aroma is citrus hops, some pine and an underlying juicy malt.
Mildly bitter with a great malt balance.

Bomber pours a slightly cloudy amber with an off white head. Very piney scent. Taste is citrus and earthy. Very nice! Love the tongue in cheek humor on the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The first pour is crystal clear dark amber. The second pour is hazy, so there’s a little sediment. No complaints there. I know their IPA is better unfiltered. There’s a nice hop aroma. Nice mix of apricot and grapefruit. The malt is a little underwhelming. Slight candied quality to the finish. The bitterness is enough to make up a bit, but it lacks a little depth in the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Little 5 Liquor shop. Pours a cloudy amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is pretty spot on. It basically smells like their IPA, which is not a bad thing at all. Lots of grapefruit and some juicy citrus. The flavor is not quite as hoppy as it could be because of the dense malts. It’s not quite sticky but it is yeasty and fruity. Still, there is plenty of zesty hop goodness to go around. I liked it, I just wish Sweetwater would really take the hop bomb to the next level beyond the amazingness which is Sweetwater IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Liquor Loft. Orange-brown pour with a thin off-white head that leaves a ring. Juicy tropical fruit in the aroma - much like their regular ipa. Tastes are pineapple, caramel, sweet honey and earthy orange. Texture was oily medium with very little carbonation. Overly sweet, sticky and flat for my tastes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
A: Hazy orange with a half inch or so of head that generates a fair show of lacing on the glass.
S: The aroma is OK, with scents of alcohol, hops, and pine.
T: Although I wasn’t as huge a fan of the aroma as the other guys, I’m even less impressed with the taste. The flavor just isn’t doing it for me. Hop and citrus notes seem muted and blurred by alcohol intensity. In addition, the beer is just too sweet. Overall, it was out of balance and just not that impressive.
M: Under carbonated and too sweet. Could be much better.
D: A small serving of this was more than enough. Unless the next batch of this is drastically different, this was my first and last rendezvous with Dank Tank Border Hopper.
