4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber, slightly golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh hops and a little grassy. Flavor is hoppy, a little piney with minor grapefruit in the finish. Overall tastes like a slightly supercharged version of their 420. Really like this one, would have again if I can find it.

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?!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Light tan IPA. Heavy heady hop nose; canned mandarin orange juice & fresh straw. Pineapple. Stupid easy drinkability, prickly tongue palate. Fucking A Nice but the race issue left a bad taste in my mouth: Points lost.

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.
