Bottle (22oz) Light clear golden. Big white head. Nice citrus aroma. Taste was all kinds of fruit but with a peel bitterness in the end. There seems to be a slightly metallic taste in the end too. Pretty nice overall. Would prefer in 12oz portions.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 I gave this a 2.1 overall score on 08.16.14. I probably had a dead IPA. REREVIEW: Bomber dated 06.17.15. Poured into a tulip on 08.14.15. A: Orange, herbs, rose, and candied lemon. It’s very unique. It’s like a soft perfume. A: 1 finger head fades to a ring and very thin spots of foam. Hazy reddish orange body. T: Follows the nose. Herbs, orange, and rose dominate. Candied lemon and vanilla are subtle. P: Creamy smooth with a crisp finish. It’s pretty light and fluffy in the mouth. O: I expected something like Citrusinensis, which is good, but this is on another level.

22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/12/14. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The beer has a very strong citrus aroma. The taste was more orange & lemon zest with some malt to balance out the citrus bitterness. Overall it was ok for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber up in Washington. Excessively awesome spiced nose. Beautiful IPA here, the additional spices really treat things up. Hope I find this again.

Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, lemon zest and black pepper. Bitter flavour, lemon zest, hops, quite spicy. Bitter finish, lingering hops. Nice!

Nice looking amber with half inch of rocky head. Appearance score reduced by some floaty bits. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus. Lemon, orange. Smells like those hard candies covered in icing sugar that come in those metal tins. Taste gives a lot more of the malt - a sweet caramel/biscuit. Comes across as really fruity, even juicy. The real fruit addition obviously ramps up the citrus, but it does so at the expense of the...beer part of it. And there’s some unfortunate butterscotch. Refreshing though

Bottle from Whole Foods
Cloudy golden color with a lot of floaties; small head. Strange aroma: lemon, soap, rosemary, heather. The mouthfeel is rather dry; no notable malt flavor; strong bitterness; but it has a soapy character, and herbs, and some citrus peel.
Weird, hardly pleasant.

Bomber From KatHouse, Thanks Brother!. Poured into pint glass. pours a light hazy orang leaving a thin white lacing on glass. Aroma is kinda strange, thinking it’s the black lemon and peel ? Taste is peppery. different in a good way though.
