A hop bomb of delight. Pungent hop presence beautifully balanced within the beer making this a true pleasure. A skunky hop aroma that is intoxicating on its own. Really bitter but in all the right ways. If I could drink this all the time I would.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden in color with a white head and some attractive thin lacing. Smells of sweet citrus hops, earth, a strong sense of pine, and a nice bitter hop aroma throughout. Heavy caramel and toffee malts give this some nice sweet backbone. A bit strong in the earth and pine, but very full of bittering hops from beginning to end. The finish is dry and bitter almost leaving a bit of a lip pucker. Nice.

Crushed at the FFF Brewery with Honkeybra. The description of this brew is extremely accurate. I was eating mac n cheese with bacon when this beer was delivered to me. One sip and my palate was wrecked. Bitter and delicious. It may have burned my tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber pours a hazy pale golden body with a two centimeter bonewhite head. Good lacing. Aroma has citrusy apricot and orange, pine, and minty and grassy notes. Medium body is smooth and well carbonated. Taste opens dry and bitter, with grassy and pine hops. Citrusy notes quickly follow, adding orange marmalade and apricot elements. Malt presence is subtle and a bit biscuity. No hint of alcohol. Hops are bright, fresh and lively. Extremely drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light color, almost like a hefeweizen. The smell was of pine. Surpisingly light bodied for a DIPA, must be from the use of dextrose. Taste was good, with a bitter finish and lemon/citrus notes. I thought it was too light and could’ve used more malt body.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Thanks Adam. A touch hazy but mostly clear light yellow orange appearance with a white head. Resiny, piney, quite potent hoppy nose. Quite citrusy, grapefruit, resiny, slightly piney hoppy flavor with a nice malty body. Grapefruit, resin hoppy aftertaste. Nice choice Adam!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A 22oz bottle from Chuck’s poured into a snifter.
Color is dark gold, almost orange. Minimal amount of white head that disappears almost instantly but leaves nice lacing.
Aroma is helluva heavenly hoppy! Floral and piney hop smells along with something sweet. Maybe nectarines.
Taste is heavy bitter and lightly sweet. Very strong hop presence in this one and again, something sweet. Possibly citrus fruits.
Medium bodied with a creamy texture, lively carbonation and a long bitter finish.
Overall, this may be one of my new favorite beers. Definitively something to put a little hair on the chest of any non-hop head. I am going to thoroughly enjoy this beer and next time I head to Bowling Green, I’m going to have to grab more than one bottle...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Orangish of sorts, dirty, really dirty, loads of sediment float about, moderate frothy white head, with spotty lacing.   Semi-sweet citrus rind and hop goodness on the nose.   Nothing brash, pretty soft and subtle.   Nice combination of sweet and hoppy right up front.   A little citrus background.   Not as brash as the Dreadnaught, but also not as heavy.   Could use a bit more body.   Backside yields a bit more citrus peel, which is nice.   For some reason this one seems tame... I expected a bit more of a bruiser.   The 9% ABV is well hidden.   Solid example, even if middle of the road.   Tangy citrus peel on the backside... thats the main thing.   Decent, but could use more malt body.   Thanks to Pailhead for the bottle!
