12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Pours a very clear golden with a thin, whispy white head of foam that quickly fades down into a film. Lots of carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Floral aroma, also noted hints of spice, citrus, orange, grapefruit, and ginger. Light weight to the mouthfeel. Quite bitter, with a prominent hop taste. Grapefruit and citrus are also present. A bit boozy for 6.5%, but drinkable. Tasted a bit thin, in terms of actual flavor. Not bad, but not that good.

A decent hop forward ipa. Just nothing that really stands out or sets it apart from other offerings out there.

Probably will not seek out, but would drink again.

Bomber on clearance at Albertson's for $2.74 ( bought 2 of them)
Full disclosure; It had an expiration date of Feb 2015 and this is March 15th

Poured a golden honey with a very large inch and a half head . At first I thought it was just my pouring that created this giant head but after pouring a few more I'm inclined to think it's a little overly carbonated. Good lacing all the way down the glass.

Nice floral smells. Everything you would want in an IPA smell

The taste is a good balance of hops, a little peppery too

It was a little too carbonated, not in the feel as much as the pour. (and this was a month past the expiration date ??!! )

Other then the carbonation A very nice IPA
