Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy slightly dirty gold - like green tea - with a slight creamy/bubbly whiteish head. Aroma is something like citrus combined with asparagus. With maybe some basil tossed in the mix. Passing strange stuff. Med body. I honest to gosh think this is a mix of basil and some standard citrus hop. Lots of basil. Well it’s damn drinkable, and I’m thinking it’d go well with something Italian. It’s bitter in the finish, and it’s certainly easy to drink. Course I think you gotta be really fond of basil to get into this. I had basil/tomato dressing on my lunch today, I’ve got basil in the kitchen window, so basil is on my mind!

Bomber poured a hazy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, coriander,wheat and lemon. Palate was light to medium odied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of sage, coriander, wheat and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering spiced finish. Even less Hoppy than Boulevards version. Why do they call this a White IPA???
