draft. cloudy golden wheat body, small bubbled white head. musty cheese and BO nose, honey-tinged, green, raw and vegetal (onion, garlic, canned tomato sauce). similar flavor: musty, cheesy, stinky, almost putrid, with garlic, butter and onion thrown in for good measure. surprisingly soft texture, low sweetness, high bitterness, medium-high acid. but.... disgusting. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A very sweet orange marmalade nose, some lemon. The flavor is a robust orange peel and marmalade both bitter and sweet, some yeast and dryness, lively and easygoing. No heat. Well made. Leaves your palate with bitterness and fruity oranges. Nice. gyllenbock (9154) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden with a thick, medium white head. Pleasant aroma and taste of pineapple, oranges and grapefruit. Also some grass and spices. Pleasant bitterness. An interesting and good beer with a nice balance.
gunnar (9085) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Strong,or megastrong hoppy aroma, fruity and grassy with a whiff of alcohol as well. Taste is strong bitter, citrus and hop tea, too much and unbalanced, almost like terpentine, dry and peppery. Strange finish, not in a good way.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy light light orange with sticky white lacing. Smells a little oxidized, but still sweet, hoppy (grapefruit), and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Decent, but definitely past it’s prime. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2010
7/19/10. Bomber into a pint glass. Cloudy, very light orange pour for a DIPA with a frothy off-white head that fades to a few millimeters with clumps. The aroma is fresh earthy hops with solid cat pee, pine undertones, minerals, and definite malt backing. The flavor is loaded with things... orange peel, fresh orange, pale malts, sweet malts, juniper, lemon, and more. I had a little taste of this on tap and it was nothing like this bottle... this is much better. Chalky and minerally but big mouthfeel. Really not bad!
