4.15/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Received in a trade with beachstrength49. Thanks man!
Poured into my FFF teku glass

Appearance: This IPA poured an orange-copper like color and produced a great two finger size bright white head. The head settled down to soft coating on the surface of the beer. Some lacing is evident.

Smell: Well whats to be expected with a beer named as such. Big time pine hops. Also getting citrus with grass/floral aromas followed up by orange peel, lemon, some lime (a little tropical fruit). Have to admit with a beer named Aroma Coma I was expecting tons more here.

Taste: Up front I get the hop profile on the front of the tongue but interestingly I get the tropical fruits more than I expected. It is bitter as it sort of makes me pucker and is quite dry in the finish. The fruits are there as pineapple, mango, some lemon, grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: I'd say light in the mouth with moderate carbonation. This is what I would describe as "crisp" and quite refreshing.

Overall: Though not completely wowed I did enjoy this very much. The taste is well balanced and quite an easy drinker actually. As my first glass is nearing empty I must mention the lacing is spectacular as it is sticking to the glass like it dried there when I know there is no possibility that it has.

Bomber > Tulip Glass

A - Clear yellow gold with a solid two fingers of foamy white head, thick lacing.
S - Amazing aroma, sweet malt, mango, pear, peach, some dank pine and grass, a little banana, very exotic.
T - Sweet malt and strong bitterness up front, then its orange candy, tons of ripe mango, peach, a little white grape, dank pine bit at the end.
M - Finish is on the extreme dry side. Mouthfeel is medium but bitter as well.
O - The name is what this beer really is, great aroma, flavor is good, but its not the best it could be. Glad to have gotten it though.

If you like fresh, sticky hops; stick your face in this.

After making a somewhat painstaking trip to find Drake's Brewing Co because of our Uber driver, we got in and tried a few beers. Well, the missus tried a few beers. I remember having and enjoying this beer a lot, so I just jumped right in. It was a good call.

Get this while you can and send me some!

Bomber to a snifter, bottled 14 days ago

Pours a a golden orange with lighter colored hues. A finger and a half of foam has retained pretty well with low carbonation coming from the center, good lacing on the sides of the glass

Smell's great. Pretty straight forward, lots of catty pine followed up by citrus notes of grapefruit and a touch of mandarin. A sweet caramel malt is pretty submissive to the hops, finishing with a splash of alcohol. Aroma coma indeed !

Taste follows pretty well. Strong upfront pine, followed by lots of orange and mandarin, finishing with notes of grapefruit and pine apple. Malt is just as sweet as the smell, tying it together with some alcohol

Feel is a moderate body, sticky and wet with good bitterness. Alcohol is hidden well, very easy to drink

Overall a very aptly named beer. I can't believe they limit such a great beer to Cali distro only. Knock that off, it's too good to hoard
