Bomber pours opaque orange with gold hues and off white head. The aroma is floral hops, flowery perfume and lesser amounts of spicy hops, wheat, an herbal note and some banana. The taste has crisp fresh spicy hops that are really inviting flowing into some wheat notes, banana and floral hops. It stays pretty spicy with crisp hops from front to back. I think the freshness of this brew is what makes it so enjoyable. Not sure I’d feel the same way if it had some age on it.

Overdone citrus hopping, like chewing on a grapefruit rind. Strongly bitter with dry crackery malts. very astringent. Hazy gold.

From a bottle poured a slightly hazy amber color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

I quite enjoyed this, really pulled nicely from wheat ale and ipa.. . Poured a slightly hazy tan, really good foam .. . balanced and refreshing, some wheat- some bitterness, all class .. . this guy couldn’t outdraw a crayon...

bottle... medium golden brown, watery off white head... nose of wheat and yeast, boring... must better than an expected being a Terrapin and wheat ipa, a hot summer day refreshing beer, but hides the alcohol well, at first there is tons of wheat, grainy not sweet, then the ipa qualities come full force, pine a touch of alcohol, malt backbone... pretty nice, nothing I’d track down but nice extra

Bomber. Huge hoppy nose, big time citrus over caramel and light pine, chewy Lagunitas caramel and light spicy dough. Airy yeast with light mineral and medium phenolics, strong Belgian dried fruit component with the bubblegum. Bright and punchy. Orange pour with highlights of Ruby Red Grapefruit and a creamy white head. Taste is dry and hoppy, sourish malt with a bready aftertaste after the wood, resin, and tropical fruit have passed. Wheat mash and lightly rubber yeast. Full body pushing fat with light crispness. Bitterness from the middle through the end. Big mishmash of flavors, but as colorful as a rainbow and worth the expedition.

Nice balance between a hefe and an IPA. Orange and unfiltered. A good blend, hops and wheat. Carbonation is right there and its a good mouthfeel. Some orange taste. IBU 75. Radek’s bottle.

HonkeyBra (3625) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a glowing reddish-orange with a small white head. Aroma of bubblegum and banana, citrus, a bit of tang. There are some notes of wheat and sweet bread notes. Flavor is nice, refreshing. It has the sweetness of a wheat ale with a significant amount of citrus hop character. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. The mouthfeel is light bodied, with lively carbonation. Finishes on an earthy hop note. Very nice, enjoyable hoppy wheat ale.

on tap at Taco Mac Cumming on 7/8/11. hazy orange pour with a 1/4" white head. Belgian yeast nose with nice fruit esters and light citrus hops. medium creamy body with average bitterness with more Belgian yeast qualities. semi-dry finish with citrus, banana and wheat.

phaleslu (7108) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2011
22 oz. bottle via recent BA trade. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, grassy hops, pale malts, and sweet bread. Flavor of sweet malts, butter, lemon, wheat, and grassy hops. Light-medium bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really nice wheat ale.
