Bottle 22fl.oz. @ CBC 2013 [ Red Session ]. - Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013, Sparta Hallen, Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads 11, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark
Clear medium red - amber brown colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, fruity - berry, wood and chocolate notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, hoppy, malty, sweet malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Bomber into tulip. Bottomless oily black; stiff sand-colored head. Stunning interplay of pungent PNW hops, spicy rye twang, and nuances of tobacco and woodsmoke. Sweet and roasty malt flavors, sharp citric/piney hop, some almost-tropical fruitiness. Slick and filling mouthfeel, cut by the zing of hop/rye/CO2. Crazy delicious; one of the most satisfying beers I’ve ever had. TBone (17583) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013

Dark brown-ruby color, small steady brown head, lace. Piney hoppy aroma with some toasty notes. Front has caramel and coffee, perhaps hints of caramel too. Finish has piney hoppyness. Nice and balanced.
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours black with a lovely tan head head that holds well. Nose shows piney hops, some roasted malts and maybe even a little citrus. Wow taste is lovely! Roasted malts and piney hops dominate first up, with a bitter, almost caramel like finish. Slight spiciness from the rye too. Great black ipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone zvsn (2096) - ISRAEL - NOV 16, 2013

Pours jet black with a foamy off-white head. Nose is hoppy and malty. Taste is beautifully balanced sweet malt and floral hops. Full body, mild carbonation. Excellent brew!

Bomber bottled on September 20, 2013 from Keg Liquor. Been waiting to try this one as I like basically everything from Firestone Walker. Pours very dark with a well formed khaki head. The aroma is great. Nice pungent citrusy hops with a subtle dankness highlight a spicy rye aroma with a suggestion of whiskey. The flavor is solid. Great hop presence. I could use more hops, maybe I guess, but I do really like what they’ve done here. There is an assertive citrus bite and it’s very apparent, but doesn’t quite explode. The malts are clean and add perfect balance. Delicious rye notes mix with dark chocolate and there is a constant earthiness. Very good beer. Itzjerm (2871) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2013

Delicious. I prefer IPAs with meals, but this is a great standalone sipping beer. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
