April 4th, 2015 - This collaboration - a lighter brown and orange in body - has a fantastic smell, combining jasmine and a touch of sage. There's also a little hint of thyme, and while the aroma isn't strictly herbal in nature, it goes give the impression of luxurious Springtime cuisine. The flavor is obviously hoppy, but the herbal composition in the aroma makes a comeback here, though milder, and persistent. The aftertaste provides an opportunity to really savor that interesting, gustatory quality, touched or dappled with mesquite honey. A feast in a bottle!

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (marijuana). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Wow, this takes the #1 spot for the most marijuana-like hop aroma I’ve ever experienced in a beer, bar none. Not even close. Exactly like a fresh bag of bud. And almost nothing else...one-dimensional for sure, it’s like pot tea...but striking and interesting and fun. Quite rich and lip-smacking in the mouth, so it’s a joy to drink...close to a DIPA in body/weight. Neat beer. Coronado has always been consistently 3.0-3.3 quality for me, but this one is certainly better than usual. bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Rating #2308 - 2016.01.12 - Bottle from @craftcellarsyyc Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with grapefruity hops, citrusy - mild caramel malt note. Taste is more of the same, dry bitterness and caramelly malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious. Ratman197 (15762) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bomber poured a hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit, citrus and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness and citrus with a crisp dry moderately bitter finish. glennmastrange (2949) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle. Moderate grain, nutty and bread for the malt, moderate orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of dried apricot, alcohol and fruit liqueur. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white, with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. A very tasty IPA. There is a big malt presence here, but there is an almost a perfect balance of citrusy hops.

Bomber from Total Wine Tampa.
Couleur ambrée-orange, col épais et crémeux blanc-casé.
Arôme est fruité tropical, avec un bouquet grains caramel et toasté assez dominant.
Palais reste axé sur les malts mais cela n’obstrue en rien le profil des houblons. Retrouve un côté accentué au niveau du pamplemousse, fin résineux avec un fini mat caramel persistant sur une pointe épicée et ’bready’. IPA intéressant emais dont le caractère malté semble prendre un peu trop le dessus. rosenbergh (12033) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled 01/06/15. Thanks Timo A!
Clear golden color with a small white head.
Fruity hops, mild bitterness, tropical fruits and orange in the aroma.
The flavor is fruity hops, orange, sweet caramel malt and mild bitterness. Easy but also tasty West Coast IPA.
