look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

A- A great looking cloudy orange with about a finger's worth of head that quickly dissipates.

S- A beer that you can smell immediately when you first pop the cap off the bottle. Tons of citrus hops.

T- Starts and ends with a big hop hit. I get a bite of the alcohol at the end.

M- Again, hops are the overwhelming characteristic. Lingers for quite sometime.

I'm a big fan of beers favoring the citrus hops. One of my favorites, and glad its come to the Chicagoland market.

A - Hazy light orange with half finger of off white head. Head retention is good, lacing looks average.

S - I can smell it from a few feet away from the glass. It sort of smells like lychees from this far away. Closer up that changes, it's mostly light citrus hops with a touch of alcohol and a good background of sweet malts. Lychees are still there just not as much.

T - Malts take over, but not too much. Sweet caramel, toffee, some light fruits. Hops are definitely not pushed aside though. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, general citrus are all there. Good balance between the sweet malts and the bittering hops.

M - Medium body, sticky sweet mouthfeel. Coats the mouth with sweet caramel malts. Finish is sweet and slightly drying with tastes of sweet malts, bittering hops, and citrus hops.

O - Good balance, nice range of hops, easily drinkable for the ABV, overall I would definitely get this again.

22oz. Bomber
Bottle Cap: 2010 Vintage

Poured into my DFH glass a very nice cloudy golden orange color, nice carbonation, with a very nice thick one-finger creamy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy with some malt notes, lots of citrus and pine notes. The taste is sweet, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice citrus/pine notes. Medium body, with a nice bitter/dry finish. This is a very nice DIPA, glad to finally try it and it's here in Utah.

Pours a light golden color.

This has a fantastic bouquet of pine and grapefruit. Very floral. Some sweetness, a little chew, a touch of pine. It’s amazingly light and quaffable for a strong DIPA, deliciously so. Called “the nectar of the gods” by someone who took a sip, and I’m borrowing that phrase because it’s so apt. Wow.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy orange with an ample white head
S: Smells of citrus, pine, a little spicy and some caramel. Very delicious
T: very light and delicate flavor that starts off sweet with some caramel and some grapefruit from the hops kicks in in the middle with a spicy and piney aftertaste on the swallow.
M: A little on the thin side but not too much so with slightly prickly carbonation but not overbearingly so.
O: Not bad, a little light on flavor but well balanced. Definitely a solid beer if a bit lacking. I like my stuff to be hop heavy but this one shouldn't disappoint.
