4.01/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650ml bomber poured into tulip 12/2/13

A clear golden yellow liquid with a few tiny bubbles and a thumbs width of dense foam that retains fairly well and leaves three distinct pencil thin rings of lace

S citric perfume and juicy fruit gum come out strong, sweet orange, faint pine, and toffee, smells strong and fresh

T some malty cereals on top of what I smell, the citrus is focused towards lemon in the mouth and there's just a hint of booze

M somewhat light bodied, pin prick bubbles and just a little grit, rind and pine on the finish

O pretty well rounded IPA, nothing holding it back but nothing to set it apart form all the other fish in the ever expanding sea of IPA's. It's a solid version of the style and although its not lacking in any area its hard to justify the price tag

Its a great IPA but I could get nearly a 6 pack of Little Scrapper, Full Moon or Hop Head for the same price of a 650ml of this. I like this beer but I doubt I'll buy a second bomber when I can get as good or better IPA's for much less

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bought a bomber at Fallbrook liquor and had Nessy burger while I was there.
Nice pour into a tulip. Deep foggy gold color, creamy head.
Smell is mostly bready hops, with a tiny bit of citrus.
Taste is also dominated by hops, with a nice carbonated slick mouth feel.
Overall a decent ipa especially when fresh, but many other options out there.
I feel if they held back on the bready malt a bit it would be a better pour.
