Really nice, complex nose, although not overpowering. Even a breath inhale is nice. Taste is decent, complex, very nicely integrated and balanced
Nice hops yet not overly biting or bitter. Went well with dining from their great ocean chowder to the supreme pizza and mango wings.

Clear amber colour with a small white head. Recent head retention. Fair lacing.

Big malt and alcohol aroma. Touches of citrus but mostly resinous hop oil. Nice but not amazing.

Balanced. That sounds wrong but it is. Plenty of malt balance out a moderate bitterness. Quite earthy and resinous. Not bad.

Medium body with moderately low carbonation.

A decent beer but nothing special. Give me a Kiwi IIPA any day.

Great price on this bomber at TW. With a bomber being about two standard brews many craft brewers appear to be gouging the consumer for a trial size of their brews. Not true in this case. Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice waft of very earthy hops and some butterscotch maltiness. Pouring into one of my trusty SAPPs I get a light bronze brew with a dense multi-sized bubble head that stands like a champ. Upon tasting the first impression is the mouthfeel super high viscosity thick like you can stand a spoon in it. The taste then starts with an evenly balanced hard and dry hop bite but sweet banana maltiness that both slam up front then stay in lockstep throughout only evenly fading in the end to a more sharp bitterness yet lingering sweetness. This brew packs a wallop in both flavor and ABV so a bomber is about the limit. A definite find for the hophead who likes a bold brew but way too powerful for any kind of sessioner. As for what it is, spot on.

Purchased at BevMo. Deep amber in color. Nice frothy white head that leaves nice lacing behind. Very good aromas of fresh grass and malt. Taste is on the bitter end a bit. Very earthy mowed grass notes. Body is well carbonated with an almost double feel. Overall this is a respectable offering. Only complaint is that a touch more sweetness would have balanced this out more. I do mean a touch.
