Bomber, drinking now. Ruby haze, bubbly head and nice lacing with tobacco and orange on the nose. Very very fresh hops, of course, that aren’t too strong, I think this will be really appreciated by fans. The flavour is extremely well balanced with sweetness from the malts and bitterness from the hops... the former is actually stronger than the latter, so yes this definitely fits the American Pale Ale designation. Love the resins to be found here, that’s the real star. Solid.
Brassy, thick head. Leafy, lightly biscuity, light berryish curranty taste. Low bitterness, mellow character. For me the unique berryish hop note was great, but it was a bit sweet for quantity drinking.

Visual: Pours mostly clear deep copper with minute bits of sediment, 1cm head and 1mm retention, singular slow streams.
beerlovers101 (2) - West Kelowna, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014 does not count
Nose: grassy lawn, light honey. (lvl-2)-intensity
Attack: thin crisp, soft CO2
Mid-palate: background cucumber-mint grassy-plastic hop oils, (lvl-3-sweetness), bright metallic honey barley malt
Finish: chamomile-osmanthus herbal tea rough aftertaste
Summary: Quite a big grassy-floral flavour; it reminds me of chamomile tea - somewhat incongruent with their barley malt base.
Freshening, grassy and... fresh!
Fresher than a pale ale should be
Colors right, golden- Heather
Overall taste isnt bad, very fresh as mentioned above.
Like a pine tree!

Draft - Fresh pine and some resin. Clear gold with a rich creamy beige head. Grapefruit and resin, not bright but mellow and balanced with a light bitterness. pushkinwow (2789) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Bomber from Taylor in 2014 fall CANBIF. Clear copper with an off white head that mostly fades. Muted and slightly wet hop with a chewy malt presence, moderate carbonation and mild body, slightly stale caramel presence as things dry out and a mild hop bitterness.

Beautiful amber color, clean, with small head. Aroma of refined sugar, vegetables, metallic. Dry mouthfeel; simple caramel flavor with a hint of vegetables and iron (tomato); no discernible hop quality, and a metallic finish.
Jaune pale avec un petit tête blanc que rétréci rapidement mais en laissent les belles dentelles. L’arôme d’houblon très fraîche avec un peu de pin. Quand elle se réchauffe il a un peu de l’arôme caractéristique de Hoyne. Je ne sais pas exactement comment le décrire, mais un peu comme l’arôme d’une brasserie, le malt usé dans la brassage, peut-être.
Le goût est très bonne. Léger in bouche et très fine et équilibré, d’houblon fraîche et du pin. Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bomber. Clear lighter orange copper, foamy white head settles and fades. Fresher aromas of mild citrus herbal hops and sweet pale malt. Sweet caramel biscuit malt taste, light juicy citrus leafy hops, some earth. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Nice fresh sessional pale.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is just mildly hoppy, especially for a wet hopped beer. The nose is actually a bit metallic smelling with a little caramel malt. The flavor is pretty light in the hops department as well, some green leafy hops, minimal bitterness. This one just doesn’t thrill me at all, wet hop beers are supposed to be much brighter and juicier than this. Lighter bodied with a fizzy carbonation level and some light lingering sweetness. Pretty boring stuff, I was hoping for much more. Storm_Shadow (122) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Bomber. Pours amber. Hoppy light easy drinking beer worth trying out. Does this come in 6 packs ?
