Sent to me by Strukzone. Thanks Dave. Poured light amber with a beige head. Good lacing. Nose of citrus, light fruit, and pine. Medium body and a very resinous mouth feel. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a lot of xitrus and tropical fruit. Finish is somewhat bitter. Not sure how this differs from an IPA but who cares. Very nice beer.

Part of a flight of your choice of 3 beers for $10. at Shakers lounge. This includes the next 2 beers I rate. Golden amber pour with a white head. Aroma is fruity and dry. Taste is the same with a nice malt body. Very tasty on draft, nice lacing.

I start the pour and its all rocky beige head with a tiny bit of clear amber at the base. Think I got an old bottle. Date looks like April so maybe this isnt a fair shake. Nose is fruity yeast esters and mango/ melon rind. Nice sweetish malt backbone with yeast and fruity hop coming in late. Finish is gently hoppy but lots of flavor without bitterness. Solid and sessionable.

On tap at Shooters. Pours a clear dark golden with a thin but retentive white head that laces. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is sweet pale malt, pink grapefruit and medium hop bitterness. Not a hop head, but this is very good.

jcr (2584) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft. Light amber body. Frothy white head. Aroma of pine, resin, citrus, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky and lively carbonation. Light pine, resin, grapefruit. Could pass as an IPA considering the abv and hap assertiveness. Well put together, but too much resin/pine.

I must have gotten a bad one. Bomber is dated 05/01/2015, and I bought it on 06/05/2015 from a St. Louis beer shop. Gigantic white, bubbly head. Aroma is of corn. Taste is, well, super bitter bad IPA with no depth or malt. Super carbonated and dry. Terrible. WTF happened here???
