Poured from bomber. Not a great aroma but a solid citrus taste. Not much rye flavor and a pine after taste.

Pours murky orange with a super pillowy white head and tons of thick lacing left behind. Aroma is tropical fruit, dank hops, and pine. Taste is rye, citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Smooth palate, medium carbonation. Overall light and tasty brew. Great ipa.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is piney and citrusy hops and a slight metallic twinge. Taste is more focused on the citrusy hops with a hint of more English style hops. Rye isn't as prominent as I hoped but still very tasty. Palate is perfect. Soft and full. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another gem. 24-karat pour with hints of crimson, scarlet, and tangerine topped with an ivory foam. Candied orange, mango, papaya and guava accompanied honey-baked biscuit and spicy black pepper. Think of citrus jam spread generously across toasted marbled-rye bread. Tasty...the breakfast of champions!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at the beer vs. wine tasting at Aficionado’s on 2/23/13. Pours a clear, yet chunky gold to amber color with a thin off-white head. Malty sweet nose with notes of spicy rye and hop. Malty flavor with spicy rye character and oniony hops in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber at Sergio’s World beers. This is not as hoppy as I would expect from FFF, but not to say it’s not hoppy. There is hugely assertive rye in the aroma with accents of citrusy hops. Palate is fairly sticky with spicy rye and an even wash of hops. I can’t believe the restraint of bitterness, relatively speaking.
