4.18/5 rDev +3.2%
Huge, frothy beige head, great retention and lacing. Brew is a hazy, pulpy, translucent dark reddish-brown.
Big notes of citrus (ruby red grapefruit, pith, and lemon) and pine. Biscuit and sweet toasty grains take a bit more to detect. Smells like a classic IPA.
Flavor follows the nose, mostly, with a much grainier malt presence, some honey, and a very green, leafy, herbal, earthy hop note. Citrus is more a cleansing back-end presence, while pine resin is present throughout.
Lively and smooth feel; medium; long finish with wet retention but drying alcohol. Very drinkable.
This is a very good hoppy amber that easily could be called a Red IPA (regardless of what MBC claims). It's very hoppy, but it's got a dry, grainy malt bill that comes through very strong and clean.

4/5 rDev -1.2%
Bomber poured into a pilsner glass. Bottled 6.10.14
Copper colored translucent liquid with a steady stream of carbonation. Thick, bountiful, frothy three finger taupe foam cap.
Aroma of floral hops, brown sugar, fig, raisins and a whisper of pine.
Hop bitterness on the middle of the tongue, malt with hoppiness, good balance.slight bitter aftertaste.
Smooth, well crafted beer, medium body, very little carbonation.
Another fine Maine beer company beer. Enjoy
