Barely a finger’s worth of wispy white foam, with lots of larger bubbles it dissolves rapidly to a thin surface coating, the lacing fares a little better with long, sticky streaks all along the glass sides. The liquid is shiny and fully transparent, an attenuated orange to then yellow color, only a few random bubbles visible. Very floral nose, violets and lilacs, orange blossom, gentle apricot to peach, apple fruit notes, segues to cut grass, salt, pepper and hard bread crust, there’s some funk in the hops yet it also has a cleansing purity to it, not much to be found by way of really sweet maltiness. Full-bodied, thick enough to be sluggish, not a lot of carbonation. The tangerine, orange to white grapefruit citrus a larger factor here, just outpoints the metallic earthy and herbaceous qualities, which themselves are formidable. The fruit lacks sweetness but there’s bite in the pineapple, papaya, nectarine, peach flavors. More grainy than processed bread, touch of peppercorns and pine cones. By the end unwinds enough that the floral dimension gets assertive. If you like your IPA’s on the bitter side while still mostly balanced, this should be in your wheelhouse. Wisely keeps it simple when it could get overcomplicated.

Bomber > ST 2xIPA
A - Pours hazy gold, big two finger fluffy marshmallow white head, good lacing.
S - Smells great, pineapple, grapefruit, big earthy pine some some floral notes, a little darker bready malt.
T - Lemon, floral hops, some mild sweet malt, and finishes with aggressive pine.
M - Very dry and bitter.
O - Not bad, the aroma is the best part, its a good IPA, though I wouldnt want a bomber again, but a 12 would be ok.
EDIT: Got a newer bomber, aroma is still pretty good, ther'es some decent tropical notes in there but the bitterness was so overwhelming, what a shame because there's potential in this beer.
