3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle served in my Hoegaarden Tumbler: Pours a hazy coppery golden hue with a okay frothy head and some spotty lace. The aroma has notes of lemon, pear and grapefruit along with herbal, piney and grassy hop vapours. Some wheat and bready pale malt notes along with a dash of peppery spice, a hint of bubblegum too. The taste is moderately fruity, a bit husky and toasty and display a even handed bitterness. I was not sure what to expect from this, perhaps a Gumballhead type brew or perhaps a hopped up witbier. Well it is not either. More akin to a Wheat IPA methinks. The mouth feel is lively enough, proper carbonation and a bit dry, dusty, and even tannic on the finish. Got just a touch of alcohol heat, not an issue. Overall, I would drink this again but I would say it is not as refreshing as I hoped. The elevated alcohol and husky finish is the reason for that.
Pours cloudy light orange. Tons of sweet malt. Par for the course. Palate is what u would expect. Taste is OK. Set barley malt. rxeight (3218) - Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Batch 88. Bottled 2/11/13. Picked this up for $3.99 at berkots in Lockport. Yeah I know it’s way past it’s prime. But I haven’t had this tick. Pours a hazy gold orange. It much going on in the aroma. Taste starts with a quick wheat taste which quickly fades to an orange and citrus flavor. For as old as it is it was this was very good. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 8, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and a decemt amount of wheat. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer, and I wish I had had it fresher. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013

Bomber from Rogers Park Liquors, drank during the Oscars! Clear golden pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is light bitter hops, honey-like sweetness, and a clean malt backbone. Taste is clean hop bitterness, honey sweetness, and wheat. Clean mouthfeel. Drinks more like an american pale ale than a wheat beer but it’s plenty tasty.

Bottle shared by a friend. This brew pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium fluffy white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, herbal hops and malt. Medium body with a citrusy wheat character and flavors of grassy hops and biscuit malt. The finish is fruity with a short banana aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. zebra (2247) - Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012

From notes. Pours hazy amber with big notes of hops and citrus. These notes continue with the bitterness that seems over drawn. Finishing notes show limited complexity. Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle shared the other day. Bomber served in a FW tulip.
A: Pours an apricot color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a heavy ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.
S: Sweet fruit and grass. Tropical fruit notes with some slightly tart peach yogurt. Great cracked wheat as well.
T: Sweet fruity berries and tropical melon. Peach notes with grassy undertone and light wheat body.
M: Light to medium bodied with a semi sweet wheat finish with a nice lively carbonation. Easily drinkable.
O: The nose on this guy was huge and it was really great. Great hop bite and easily drinkable, even at 7.50%.

Is this a Wheat-PA? Very hop forward to begin but then it just drops off in a flat nature. It looks hazy and smells of hay and bitter citrus hops. Overall unbalanced and confused
