3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, last one, at total wine in greenville. pours a hazy, copper orange with a one-finger, whispy white head and a light ring of lace. aroma is very nice, very dank as expected from sweetwater, with sticky hops, grass, pine esters and heavy citrus notes of orange and lemon zest. flavor is damn nice as well with more sticky, sweet hop notes of peach, apricot, and pineapple backed by orange citrus, pine esters, soap and a bit of spice with a bitter, clean finish. palate is medium bodied, bitter, and nicely carbonate with a fruity aftertaste. overall, a very solid effort from sweetwater but i wish i had a bit fresher.

Bomber, just released a few days ago, nice and fresh. Poured clear, golden with some amber hints. Aroma was a blast of citrusy hops, lots of pine, fresh and juicy. Citra is fitting name for this hop, very nice indeed. Flavors were a bit more toned down although didn’t disappoint, big hop presence. Quite fruity with a long bitter finish. Just a touch of sweetness in there but otherwise no alcohol could be found. I like that the dudes at Sweetwater made a fresh hopped double, first one I have seen and they knocked it out of the park. Nice job.

Bomber. Holy mother of sweet hoppy goodness, Thanks Rob! Citrusy grassy causing me to sneeze aromas. Orange, grapefruit, and pine flavors tickle the tastebuds. Overfall a freaking awesome beer. My burps even taste great. Now that’s a sign of a quality libation!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, unknown date (although quite fresh). Pours very hazy amber/orange with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring and wispy cap, hardly any lacing. Aroma is full of citrus, oranges, tangerine, grapefruit, as well as some pineapple and tropical fruit, a little pine, caramel and bread. Very good strength. Flavor follows suit with oranges, tangerine, some sweet grapefruit, pineapple, mango, melons, then a solid sweet caramel malt backbone, good bitterness on the finish with some lingering sweetness from the malt. Tasty. Mouthfeel is medium to almost full, creamy, medium carbonation. What? A citrus bomb coming from Sweetwater? Who’da thunk?!

Similar to their regular IPA, but stronger. A decent amount of grapefruit hop flavor with some sweet earthy malts. Not bitter at all. Medium bodied and full flavored. On the sweet side for a DIPA.

On tap at Perimeter Taco Mac (killed the keg). Poured a dark copper color with a large white head. Aroma is a wonderful blend of citrus & pine hops and a almost fruity aroma as well. The flavor matches with a very nice malty backbone. A nice smooth palate. Very impressed by this beer. Hoping I can find this a the store to get some more.
