A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dark orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, citrus, pine, and malt.

T: Tasted of hops (a lot of hops), some citrus (grapefruit), malt, and a good shot of pine. Not a groundbreaking flavor here, but very well done - especially if you like hops.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a fairly bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well done beer all around. Very much drinkable.

A - Pours a cloudy amber with a two-finger foamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Tropical fruits with light sweet caramel malts.

T - Sweet caramel malts upfront. The sweetness is followed by a nice amount of tropical fruits(orange & grapefruit) and a piney resinous hop bite. Finish has a good hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a nicely balanced DIPA. This would be a good beginner DIPA. Very enjoyable.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A hazy yellowish orange color with a thick off white head. The head disappeared after a couple minutes but tons of lacing.

S hops, citrus, and pine aromas also some malty notes, strong and bitter. All in all its not a particularly aromatic brew.

T up front hop bitterness but balanced by some malty sweetness then back to a bitter ass hoppy finish. The 8.7 ABV warms the palate. Flavors are a little muddled however.

O A great beer. I was more than happy downing 22 ounces of it but it is far from perfect.

Got this one at Lee's Discount Liquours in LV

22oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice slighlty hazy golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice one-finger creamy off-white head, with some very nice thick sticky lacing left behind. The nose is a very nice blend of hops and malts with a slight edge to hops, nice pine and citrus notes. The taste is hoppy, with a nice blend of malts, a nice sweetness, with some pine and citrus notes. Medium body, with a nice slight bitter/dry finish. Overall a very tasty DIPA, would recommmend and buy again. This would be a very nice addition to the Utah beer scene.
