Bomber - lightly hazy straw color - bright, fruity aroma, with some biscuity malt and copious citric hop character - flavor is much the same - crisp, crackery malts, a bit of dry, mineral character - assertive hop bitterness at first compliments the malt base, but then gets a little too much in the long term - hops become quite spicy/peppery toward the finish - long-lingering, tongue curling bitterness overstays its welcome on the palate - some good things going on, but goes downhill near and through the finish.

Aroma is hoppy and somewhat yeasty - not strong, but still promising. It pours a clear yellow amber with a fluffy white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is strongly hoppy with hints of grapefruit and evergreen. Texture is smooth with a lively tingle that persists in the mouth after the brewski has headed downstairs.

Draft @ The Sushi Bar, McCall, ID: Pours a golden color with a nice white head. The nose is bright and hoppy with orange and grapefruit, light citrus and moderate malty body. The flavor is clean and light, a very pleasing IPA with a unique hop profile. I drank many pints of this over the summer at the sushi bar. nearbeer (5372) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2010
22 oz. Clear burnt orange with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is dirty butterscotch, lemon, resin, wood, and fresh apple. Flavor is soapy butterscotch, cabbage, dirty lemon and pine sawdust. Near medium body is a bit too fizzy, but well-balanced and lightly tingly. OK traditional, British-tasting IPA beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Sampled on 8/20/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity, caramel and sweet, lot of orange and apricot flavors. Hops are citrusy and orange, a touch floral and earthy as well. A medium bitter IPA. Nice carbonation. The hop bitterness tends to linger throughout this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

22oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WADialSquare (4987) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Aroma – Big hop aroma with a nice balanced malt.
Appearance – Amber in color, clear, with a thin head.
Flavor – This was filled with fruity hops flavor. The malts where subtle this was a big IPA.
Palate – Dry finish with a Nice Mouthfeel.
Overall – Very nice IPA. Loved it after mowing the lawn.
Bomber - clear copper pour. Aroma of grass, lemon and citrus hops. Taste of caramel roasted malts and slightly acid hop bite. Finishes up a tacky bitter sweet. Ok - not great. ads135 (4590) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 19, 2012
One of my least favorite Full Sail’s so far. Light in hops, some butter flavor and a bit unbalanced. Still, very drinkable. Watery. IndianaRed (4546) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle, at Brewforia, pours a hazy dingy orange with a small sandy colored head. Faint fruity aroma. Peaches and apples. Dry lively crisp palatte. Not sure how this qualifia as an IPA. The bitterness is there...though I can’t find all 70 IBUs that Full Sail claims. ECM more lacking is the hop flavor. Not un pleasent, just not hoppy. I continue to be inderwelmed by their "sun" series in general.

Bottle... Poured orange with a white head. The nose consisted of herbs, reefer, floral, hops, and vegetables. A very earthy, vegetable-like IPA. The hops weren’t resinous or alpha-ish bitter. Just earthy, spicy and floral. Some biscuit grains and malts to create a subtle sweetness. With a dry, earthy, grassy finish.
