Bomber courtesy of IrishBoy (Thanks Richard!) poured a clear golden amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, pine, dankness, light earthiness and light grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, dankness, pine and a hint of grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering dank piney finish. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Great nose that showcases the hop well, as does the flavor. Avg body but as expected. Solid. TylerGreenDC (1033) - - APR 22, 2015
Draft. Big Centennial hop aroma of flowers, also of honey. Flavors are orangey honey with some nutty bittering at the finish. Solid. FresnoStoney (4) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 19, 2015 does not count
Very unique IPA - Intense malt profile combined with great Hops! One of my all-time favorites! At 6.5 ABV, the Bomber is a nice solo drink to enjoy while food-prepping! kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2013
I like Centennial hops, so I think well of this beer. Good citrus and tropical fruit nose from a healthy foam. Amber color with medium body. Flavors are a little too sweet but hops are still noticeable. Finish is also slightly sweet.

Amber pour with a white head. Nice citrus hop nose. Some grapefruit, a bit of orange, and a light peach note. Plenty of pine, a mild malt sweetness, and a hint of floral hops. There is a bit of a grassy note to the flavor. Some pie bitterness, grapefruit, and orange peel. Moderate malt sweetness on the palate as well. mastabass666 (277) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Unclear amber, tiny head. Aroma-grains, citrusy hops. Taste- sweet malt, spicy and floral hops. Light-medium body, dusty aftertaste. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Growler. Deep orange pour. Citrus aroma. Very nice hop aroma. Flavor is sweet malt. Some cotton candy. All followed up by a calming American C-hop bitterness. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear medium orange with a 1/2 finger yellowish white head, good retention. Big grassy citrus hops and light pine hops behind, with a solid lightly sweet clean caramel malt backbone. The flavor has the caramel turning a little honeyish, with the hops otherwise staying the same. Dry finish with bitterness at a 4. Light carbonation with a medium body. Very good IPA--more of a regular IPA than a West Coast. . . ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2009
One of the most well balanced "hop bombs" I’ve had in a lng longtime. On Tap at the brewpub in Bakersfield. Poured a really nice looking deep orange color with a nice white head. Flavor is juicy hops with a nice almost sweet malt nose in the background. Flavor is amazing. Some really nice citrus hop kick at the front end with a little bit of pine hop thrown in for interest, but the bitterness you expect at the back of your mouth was replaced by the sweetness of the malt. There was a lot of good stuff going on in this glass.
