3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours hazy copper orange with a off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Nose is a mix of tangerine and faint grapefruit. Taste is more balanced than many of the style, but has ample bitterness. Citrus character continues. Body is light but never feels watery or weak.
Poured into a pint glass from a 16oz tallboy can.
3.25 A: Murky copper amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Hops are primarily grassy and earthy, but there’s some piney and citrus in there as well. Overall though, the hops are underwhelming. Yeasty breadiness with some toastiness and a touch of caramel. Pretty average.
2.75 T: Hops are again underwhelming. Very mild bitterness and not a lot of flavor as well. What is there spans across grassy, earthy, piney, and nondeScript citrus with no real focus. Lots of yeasty breadiness, but clean for the most part. Toastiness accompanies a light fruitiness with some peach and pear. The taste isn’t bad. It’s more an issue of comparing this to competing IPAs. This one doesn’t measure up.
3.0 M: Medium body than comes off a bit watery. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but overall good enough.
2.5 D: Again, it’s a decent beer, but well below average, especially in the IPA world.

16oz can poured into a sam adams glass. Hazy golden orange pour with a white head and tons of lacing leftover. Closer to an English style IPA the hops were a more subtle variety than my preferred west coast brews but still pretty tasty. More pine than citrus along with some biscuit notes.

Burnt orange pour with semi creamy khaki head. Lemon, soap, pine, cantaloupe, bitter orange peel. The malt backbone is semi sweet, but the hops are pretty bitter. Decent overall. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
From bottle, courtesy of FiL. Sweet caramel and light fruity hop aroma, lightly oxidized. Hazy golden amber with foamy thin lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with some caramel and fruit apple note. Light citrus hops character. Light acidity, bit of alcohol, and some light bitter astringency. Finish is light fruity with mild hop bitterness. After is mild tart after with lingering bitterness, but overall not harsh. A little cider in there, a bit odd. jb (3270) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle share from bob. Thanks bob! Nice dark gold color. Bob says good head. Hazy. Fruity. Fruity yeasty palate. Light on the hops. Decent. Heavy apricot flavor dominates taste. This one grew on me. Bumping it.

Draft at tap room. Hoppy smell. Really taste pine and citrus hops. Best of the beers I sampled. Ron (3995) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. A hazed amber with a thick bubbly head. Aroma is floral piney hops with citrusy and biscuit notes. The flavor has some nice grapefruit and pine upfront with nice biscuitty malt. Slight bitterness and dry finish. Medium bodied. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange, brownish color with a thick off white head. The aroma has caramel, earthy, bread & some pine. The taste is medium in body with a malt forward taste with a mild bitter finish. overall not my favorite flavor profile in an IPA but an OK beer. cfrancis (3474) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours copper with a small white top. Aroma is pine and floral hops. Taste is a big pine and hop bitterness with a smaller sweetness and honey. mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Pours a nice golden color with light head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and citrus. Starts a little bitter but finishes very smooth leaving a hint of hops in the aftertsate.
