Bomber poured into a Sam Adams glass

Clear, golden amber with a steady stream of bubbles. Two finger white foam cap settles to a frothy, half finger lid with great lacings. Looks great.

Aroma of citrus with a hint of floral.

Slight , crisp bitterness on the tip of the tongue quickly leads to a full mouth of hoppy flavor at the middle of the tongue. Smooth hoppy finish.

Suds up well in your mouth, smooth finish.

Very good beer and available all over my area. Don't remember the price, but, it was relatively inexpensive.
