Pours brown with a white head. Smells of caramel, earthy, rosey. Tastes of caramel, earth, tea with some weird boozy elements. I usuallu enjoy Lagunitas creations, but this isnt one of them.

This poured a solid red with two fingers of head. The lacing on the glass is rather smooth and creamy. Aroma has a good bit of floral hops. Taste has a nice mixture of the sweeter malts typical in a brown ale but they are decently counterbalanced by the hops. The mouthfeel is also quite pleasant.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2010
Tasted 3/27/10. Bomber. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Layer of off-white head. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit with a piney grassy note. Medium to full bodied. Big hops on a base of toasty, cocoa malts. Nicely bitter and very dry. Nicely bitter palate. Rye toast and grapefruit with a splash of orange. Sticky and lingering. This is just a fun drinking beer!

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 6, 2010
Here we go again....Lagunitas pushing me about the house with a good buzz going. Bomber from the rip and run. Pours a deep tea brown. Thin edgy head after settle with a thich foam with small round lacing. Medium body malt base with a cresendo of moderatly piney hops that tone down to a finish tingle. Carbonation seems un even ...or was that me?

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 5, 2010
Lagunitas Brewing Wilco Tango Foxtrot Pours deep brown with a reddish tinge and a thinner whitish head, mild lacing. Aroma is malty hops and not overtly strong. There is an earthy grassy smell to it as well. Flavor is IPA hoppy with a stronger malt backbone. Got better as it warmed The beer feels more robust, but still not as good as other similar types (namely Arrogant Bastard).

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bomber. Pours a deep, dark, chestnut to cola brown color, showing translucent in a strong light. A small but steadfast head of creamy, beige tinted foam leaves jagged flares and broken rings of lacing on the glass. The nose is aggressively hopped with dank, green grassy notes, also hinting at citrus rind, with countering notes of malty rye and caramel. Theres a peppery, sandalwood spice overtone that works quite nicely. Flavors are the mirror image, again potently hopped with green grass notes, spiced with toasted, oily, cedary wood, and balanced out with rich caramel, rye, and cocoa malt notes. I also picked up hints of chestnuts. The finish is again quite green, yet sufficiently softened by toasty bread notes. Smashingly drinkable, even at nearly 8% ABV, the palate sports a distinct creaminess up front that end with a fine, actively carbonated flurry. This is exactly what I expected from Lagunitas.....an above average, unabashedly hopped, highly enjoyable bargain brew.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 5, 2010
A very fruity floral aroma. Nice red color. Rich and flavorful, a fruit character surfaces in the middle. A very nice beer with an excellent finish.

Bomber from Olive Tree Marketplace. Wow, not an IPA, I thought all of Lagunitas special beers were IPAs, nah just kidden. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is quite nice, with a touch of citrus hoppiness and some malt as well. Taste is sweet, slightly malty and the hops come in on the back end. Its overall ok, and its very mellow on the taste buds, not bad, not exciting either.
