Bomber. Pours unclear orange with white head and light splashes of lace. Smell is sweet citrus, some tropical and pine. Taste is big sweet malts with a wallop of pine, citrus and some floral. Heavily bitter finish. Well done and the 1st I’ve had from these guys.

Bomber from Capone’s. Pours hazy straw with off-white head. Nose is heavy resiny hops, citrus, tropical fruit. Tastes smooth for a beer this big, with piney hops, tangerine, pineapple, and a resiny, IBU-heavy finish. This one is tasty.

Bottle. Pours a translucent hazy orange with some carbonation. White head with nice sticky lace. Good aroma of pine, fruit and grapefruit hops. Flavor is a nice hoppy citrus, grapefruit and some astringent. Laves you feeling good and forgetting the last week of work. Great Friday beer.

Bomber via BoostIPA pours a hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet malts with floral and tropical hops. Taste similar to aroma, melon and honey, graham cracker, light bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden orange pour with a thin soapy white head and light sticky lacing .... aroma is of citrusy and piney hops think grapefruity and pineapple ..... taste is a bit sugary with citrusy and bitter piney hops with slight caramel malts, but mostly a grapefruity/piney hop combo ... very well dry hopped in the finish with a big bitter hop bite .... solid hoppy brew just a little too sugary for me

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very light gold color with a small white head. Aromas of juicy tropical fruit, some pine resin. Taste is tropical fruit sweetness, coupled with some big bitterness on the backend. Pretty good tropical fruit expression from the hops. Not too much bitterness or astringency. Light on the malt. This just took the throne for best beer made in Rochester, NY.

Very off aroma on this one that thankfully doesn't really carry through to the flavor. First sniff was soapy which then kind of turned into a musty fruitiness. Odd. Smooth fruity sweetness really cuts any bitterness and let's the overhopping be the star. Odd fruitiness is in the hop flavor to go with a spiciness. Not really grapefruit... I'm not really sure. Definitely a unique beer in the overhopped IPA category.
