Pours three fingers of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and orange. Pretty nice.
The taste is quite piney, a solid dry bitterness throughout. It has a good malt backbone.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a good IPA.

A: Light amber, good clarity, with a few small floaters. Thin head with low retention.

S: Very floral hops and sweet malt, with a tiny hint of mango. Aroma is a little muted.

T: Floral hops up front mingles with the malt background well, then pine and fruit make an appearance. Finishes with a smooth bitterness; pine lingers on the tongue.

M: Smooth, pleasant finish, nice.

O: I've not been too impressed with the flood of hoppy Oregon beers showing up in VT but this one is a winner. Extremely well balanced hop bitterness and flavor, nice malt backbone, dangerously drinkable at 7% ABV. Well done!

Bomber poured into a perfect pint glass. 12/2

Foam emerges upon the cap being lifted. Pours light to medium dark amber with thick full white foam. Grassy meadow nose. Lemon pepper. Flowers. Taste is a mellow malt with a nice peppy bitter. Soft before the bitter. Crisp finish. Solid.
