Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big hops forward aroma. Floral and fruity. Very nice malt backing and flavors. This was a very tasty IPA. One of the bets I have had in a long time. Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Appearance was amber gold with diminishing whitish creamy 1 finger head, spotty lacing.Aromas where sweet honey malt with grapefriut, lemons, oranges and spices. Taste was sweet figs, honey sweet malty backbone with melony citrus lemony hops comes through in the back. Palate was smooth creamy carbonation with beautiful medium balance of sweetness and hops. Wonderful IPA... pacond (188) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Orange color body with big hop flavor and bitter grapefruit finish. On point for sure. MacBoost (1898) - Victor, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2012

Pours and looks the same as I described below, but the taste is nowhere near as mind blowing. 3.6
Pours a clear light amber with a generous 4 finger head. Very citrusy aroma, grapefruit, mango. Taste follows suit, very sticky hops, very bitter. A beautiful beer. 4.3
Bottle. Golden orange pour head with a foamy white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Fantastic balance. Good body. Loads of grapefruit and melon hop notes supported by a sturdy caramel malt backbone. A very nice IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bomber from Wilibees in Petaluma. Orange pour with great white lacing on the glass. Nose is bright citrus hops - grapefruit and mango - with some resin to round it out and make it a very full aroma. Moderate palate. Taste is sharp citrus hop that is well balanced. Great beer. jefcon (1853) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2012
What a lovely, tasty beer. Lots of hop and a gentle wash of malt. Slight amount of minerality, like stones washed in a river. Draft. beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is filled with sweet grapefruit, grapefruit peel, peach, orange and tangerine and is super hoppy. Flavor follows the nose with a touch of sweet malt, I get floral notes, sweet grapefruit and grapefruit peel, subtle tropical fruit and orange and tangerine. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a great IPA. Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2012
A pretty citrusy IPA. Very strong grapefruit flavor - round citrusy nose. Tastes more sour than bitter. Finishes very dry. There are plenty of hops in there...but it starts off and ends with so much citrus, that it feels like a hop cameo.
