COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
East coast vs west coast...a battle that has been waged for years in many forms. Now there arises a brew that strives to unite the two sides. This IPA bursts with an inviting hop aroma in conjunction with a carefully selected monastic yeast strain. It delivers unexpected, yet delectable flavor. Case closed?

Bomber poured a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit, yeast, citrus and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, lemon and light grapefruit with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
Uninteresting IPA. Some bitterness, not bad, but nothing special as an IPA. Yellow coloured body, a little lace. Slightly odd aroma. Not that drinkable. Average mouthfeel, suitable carbonation.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bombers from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours clear dark straw with 1-finger splotchy white head that laces fairly well. Nose is funky yeasty rock sugary malt, mango, citrus, hops. Tastes funky, yeasty, with mid-palate dry florals, hopcitrus, Gets a mild semi-metallic taste as it warms. Decent, but not as good as some of the prior efforts from these guys.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Orange pulp, banana, clove and malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange, banana, and malt. Mildly bitter clove and orange peel finish. More wheat characteristics than IPA.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle in the campground at BCTC. Pours a hazed orange amber with a thin white head. Spicy floral notes with musk and yeast. Floral hops on the nose. Sweet, musky and toasty. Citrus and toast, finishing up with more musky yeast notes. Nice.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours light-ish gold with a big white head. Plain pale malts, faint sweetness, light earthy and floral hops, low bitterness, faint mineral-like notes, and a hint of odd spicy yeast. Not bad, I guess, but not a good IPA.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bomber. Honey golden with just a bit of haze. A big white fluffy head lasts. An aroma of big citrus hops. Those citrus hops are also big and biting in the flavor. Pepper notes with some lemon, tropical fruit and grapefruit. Spice and yeast. Caramel malts are way behind in the balance. Pretty good IPA, especially for those who like citrus hops.
