2011. Hazy tan. The aroma is earthy, minty hop. Similar character on the palate. Not at all bright. Malts are indistinct, relatively boring. Not bright? How’d they do that? djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a small off white head with spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops and bubblegum. Medium mouthfeel with a dry hop with grapefruit and grass with a light bitter finish. A good IPA from Bridgeport. bhensonb (16130) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bomber (minus foil) from Whole Foods in Sacramento. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is floral, citrus and light stone fruit. Near med body. Flavor is a bit earthy, but mostly floral, citrus and light stone fruit. It’s bitter. There’s enough flavor to overcome the garlic bean bacon spread I just had. It’s a very down to "earth" beer.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, grassiness and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit and light grassiness with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Unlike more herbal fresh hop beers this one on draft tastes like orange juice. One dimensional and sweet but not terrible. BVery (11494) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Tap at Haymarket. Very non-aggressive IPA - some floral hop but it’s far from bold. Decent enough but far from awesome. onceblind (11135) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2011
GABF 2011. Bright yellow gold with slight haze. Grassy fresh hop aroma, but also has a tone reminiscent of plastic. Nice smooth grassy hop flavor with mild floral and a small bit of citric hops. A little light on the body. Balanced though. marcus (10975) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy amber with a disappearing off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor that is overwhelmed by dry hop bitterness. Not very balanced and a bit thin, but hopheads will probably like this one. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
