bhensonb (15489) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Amber gold color with a decent off-white head. Lots of resin and floral/grapefruit hop backed by a dose of malty sweetness. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is hop - mostly grapefruit over malty sugar. Finish is bitter and dry, but there’s enough backbone to make this a really enjoyable drink. Quenching? Kind of. Refreshing? Yep.
