A: The pour is a nice golden orange color with a surprisingly small white head and some minimal lacing.
S: A big burst of citrus hop aroma up front gives this one much more of an IPA feel. With a little warming up, some of the yeast esters come through and I pick up some bubblegum, pepper, and spicy yeast esters. That said, the hops are still dominant.
T: Fairly heavy on the spices (yeast contributions) with some great fruitiness. Tangerine and grapefruit are the biggest fruit notes I get, and the bitterness is there, but does not overwhelm the beer.
M: The body is medium with a carbonation that borders medium and high--not over-carbonated, however.
D: I wasn’t exactly sure what the "wild" character of this beer was upon drinking it, though some research has shown this beer did spend some time with Brett. At this point, it’s like most of the other good Lagunitas beers: hoppy. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2011

Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours rather clear and orange with a foamy white head. Lush floral/fruit aromas. Near full bodied with foamy carbonation. Malt? Well hidden. Hop - lots of floral, could be background citrus and pine. Finishes with a little light malt sweet and bitter stuck all over the mouth. YUM!

Bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a large rocky white head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Good complex citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet and bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.
