Bomber, courtesy of SoLan. Pours golden with a tight white head. Citrus and pine hops on the nose. More of the same pine and citrus hops in flavor, light malt profile, a little alcoholic heat shines though, very bitter pine, and then it winds down with a vegetal harsh astringency in the finish. Medium mouthfeel, with decent carb, but the finish is too harshly astringent to balance out. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Hazy and golden-orange with a big, foamy head. Nice texture. Snappy, sharp and crisp hops up front (flowers, grass, pine and citric acid); decent aromas in the beginning. Malt aromas were really sweet-smelling, with notes of cake, bread dough and caramel. Malt flavors were similar, but much more subdued and not very sweet. Finish was dryish and bitter. Residual bitterness was a bit harsh, and it didn’t have any sweetness to help balance things out. For that reason, I found the beer to be a bit stark and rough around the edges. kyzr (1545) - Montana, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Pours a deep gold with big white frothy head. Nice hoppy citrus nose. Flavor is big hoppy and chewy. Nice caramel and malt that help balance it out. Good hoppy dry finish.

I picked this bomber up at Pat-apostrophe-s Liquors in Porter, IN. It poured a light amber body with a tall rocky head that soon degenerated into clumps of islands drifting about the top of the ale. It had an aroma of caramel and toffee topped by soft citrus and floral scents. The hops intensified in the flavor, adding a light touch of pine to the citrus zest and grapefruit. It finshed on a modest bitter note, perhaps developing somewhat the more that was drunk. A sessionable IPA. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle from and on tap at brewpub. Pours a thin amber with an exquisite aroma of peachy hops with sweet grapefruit. Flavor is bitter, biting grapefruit and pine sap. Thick and lasting mouthfeel. I’d sprint for another of these. And I hate running. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bomber. Pours a cloudy bright orange with one finger beige head and delicate lacing. Nose is floral and citrus hops. Taste is caramel malt, un-ripe ornamental oranges, grapefruit and a an extremely dry bitter finish that lingers for quite awhile. This is much hoppier than I anticipated, especially from the aroma. Medium mouth feel. A nice IPA! blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2008
bottle, hazed orange pour, head is thin and fading, some nice lacing, nose is sweaty grapefruit, light sticky pine and grapefruit notes with some flowery lavender also, good typical ipa marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 15, 2008
This hazy yellow beer poured with a decent off-white head a a fresh floral aroma. The flavor is seriously bitter, but there is a tasty caramel malt base to balance it out. It’s a bit too piney for my taste, but hopheads will probably love it.
