Bottle sampled at SIB, pours hazy dark orange. Aroma of light hops and caramel malt. Fairly standard, muted hops with a solid malt backbone. Not a great IPA. bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber gold with a foamy beige 3 finger head. Aroma is very floral. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is very mild malt with a lot of floral and a little citrus for hop. Finishes definitely bitter. Bitter lingers. Having said that, it does seem a bit under flavored. Don’t know why. It has a lot of bitter. Maybe I’ve been over doing Impy styles. This is a really good and bitter IPA. Ratman197 (14686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2010

22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note and faint malty notes. The taste is very bitter, resiny and herbal hops with some green apple notes. Medium bodied. Interesting, but not really to my liking.

Bottle. Not sure of the freshness here, as my label says 2010. Hmmmm. Anyway, it pours out a hazy fairly bright orange with a medium off white head. No lace. Aroma is more malty than hoppy, sweet cereal, earthy veggie hop nuances. Not very appealing. The palate shows similar structure in that it features sweet cereal malts more prominently than aromatic hops. There is a lot of bitterness in here, but not much to elevate the palate. The hop character is more medicinal and astringent than anything. Not that great.
