Bomber. Cloudy golden body. Frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit, melon, rye, orange peel, grapefruit rind, resin, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Reminds me of Dreadnaught with a rye twang. The flavors of fresh citrus fruit, sweet orange and melon get washed over by hop bitterness. Great balance. Complex. Smooth, easy to drink. Outstanding. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2012
22oz bottle from a BA trader. Cloudy amber/orange with a thick, off white head. Aroma of citrus, bubble gum, flowers and caramel. Flavor is bitter hops, sweet caramel malt and some spicy rye. Medium body with a thick mouth feel. Really great beer, the rye adds a touch of spice and a really nice mouth feel. adrian910ss (2604) - Doylestown, PA, USA - MAR 8, 2013
22 oz bomber courtesy of Todd. Pours a cloudy orange vistilite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of fresh orange citrus, rye, bitter hops and bread malts. Taste of fresh orange citrus, grapefruit, bitter hops and rye bread. Another gem from 3 FFFs. Atom (2593) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a cloudy copper/orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma is tropical, oranges, pineapple, with a nice balance of rye and hop spice. Taste of rye spice, sweet bready caramel malts, citrus, and bitter pine throughout. Really great aroma here! Very enjoyable. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy off orange pour w/ a thick tall well laced white head densly made up of little bubbles and dissapates into some soapy looking head. Aroma is first a big hit of citrus and fruity hop aromas. Then some sweet caramel a hint of rye comes through lightly then gets covered up by a second wave of grassy hops. Palate is rich and lightly creamy. Flavor is subtly sweet on the front some of that is probably from the Rye as well with a resinous slightly piney finish a lingering bitterness is light and balances the malty front end. Loads of piney hops in the aftertaste, not much of the fruitiness in the front that I liked so much in the nose. Thoroughly enjoyable, but lacking a bit of balance that some maturity might give it.

Bomber shared with friends. Big ole stickin’ hops in this bad boy. Right up in your face from the second you crack open the bottle. Nice floral hints with just a tad bit of citrus/grapefruit. Very enjoyable. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 This was really quite good. Big hops, piney and citrus, enough malty to back it up. Dry finish and spicy taste and finish from the rye. Serving: Bottle fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Pours cloudy orange amber with a 3 finger, chunky off white head and high effervescence. Aroma is huge on citrus, tropical fruit and floral hops, some pine, biscuit, a little caramel and spiciness that could be hops, rye, or a combination of the two. Big tropical fruit, citrus, pine and spicy hops, biscuit, toast, cereal and twiggy pine. medium to heavy body, light carbonation, and a creamy to chewy feel. Fantastic stuff. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bomber shared. Pours an orange color with off soft white head with nice lacing. The aroma is like sticking your face in a pine tree and inhaling very slowly. But that’s not the only aroma. You get some grapefruit mix with other tropical fruits. The first taste was a subtle ness of bold hops and rye. Funny the aroma and flavor come across in two different ways. Both very good. The rye comes across the middle of the tongue. ThEn i spilled my glass. DAMN. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2013
650 ml bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks Rebekah. Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is medium in strength vegetables and cat piss. Cant say that I really dug the aroma too much. The taste, unlike the aroma, is a masterpiece--I get rye grains, apricots, melons, mild spices, oranges and perhaps some sweetened grapefruit. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering spicy hops. Overall: Decent DIPA, a bit like Alpine Nelson on steroids.
