Very solid, but a bit harsh and thin. The hops are not nearly as strong as the label says...85 ibus? Can’t think up much to say about it...kinda ordinary. BarrettMiller (12) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Inviting aroma. Starts with a citrusy spice flavor, with a strong hop body, finishing dry. p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Bomber from Holiday wine cellar into 3 half pint glasses. Looks like brown gold with smallish head. Smells slightly rustic amber hop spice. Lovelly tweaked version of an IPA. Overall 7 of 10. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 5, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours light amber with a long lasting thick head. Aroma and flavor has some citrus notes and caramel backing. Slight spice from the rye. Overall I would have liked to have a bigger bitter bite and finish. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Bomber, poured a deep orange color with citrus and spice aromas that flare the nostrils. Taste is citrus, caramel, hops and grapefruit bitterness throughout.

On tap @ the brewery.
Deep orange color with lots of white head. Citrus hop aroma with some spice and caramel malt - nice rye spiciness with some bitterness and a good amount of malt. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
29 July 2011, tap at brewery. yellow, faintly cloudy, occasional bubbles. nose is astringent grapefruit rind but not huge. thin/med body and mildly fizzy. decent ipa. can’t say i can pinpoint rye but nice prominent bitterness. slightly sweet w/ grapefruit rind all throughout. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle send to me from Saarlander. Rusty gold color with a good lasting foam on top. Scattered lacing. Pine and grapefruit in the aroma with grain, woodsy notes, and caramel. This is a solid beer. Easy to drink, refreshing, and enough hops to satisfy. The hop flavor seems more resinous with a little pine than any citrus; soft and somewhat oily but with a little bit of a gritty grain note that’s probably the rye component. There’s plenty of malty sweetness but it still gets nice and dry in the finish. Nice firm bitterness. Lacks any thrill but just a good all around beer.

Bomber. Pours the expected orange-gold of the style. Thin layer of sticky white foam. Aroma of sweet malt and light hops. Flavor is solid of malt and rye, though a touch sweet of corn. This is a fine brew, but lacking in hop flavor and presence. Mouthfeel is oily, but not heavy. Just decent. Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle-pours lightly hazy orange with a small soapy slightly off white head that turns to fizzy pretty quickly. nose is not all that in your face in terms of hops-lite citrus, lite pine, sweet malt-flavors are lightly hoppy, rye notes (cracker, sweet grains) and some lite citrus. really not all that IPA-ish if you ask me. finish is sweet with lingering grainy notes. really decent if you would call it an APA,but not IPA. Decent and i bet it would be bettter on tap. a pretty soft beer for the style and ABV.
