Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down Virgil Gamache Farms' famed Amarillo hops. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

2014 Bomber featuring Mosaic hops

L: Golden Pour, nice thick head which dissipates at an average rate; better than average lacing

S: Resiny, Hoppy, light citrus/fruity smell

T: Piney, followed by slight citrus; I was expecting a little more citrus..

M: Medium Smooth IPA without much malt flavor. Low bitterness for an IPA, Hops in back, definitely not overpowering

O: A smooth and drinkable beer. Fresh hop taste which is a nice switchup from the average over hopped IPA; not necessarily what I was expecting. Smell is nothing to write home about but does not turn you off, just not anything special.

Definitely surprised with this brew, when I think of a mosaic hopped beer this isnt what comes to mind, but did not disappoint.

2014 version: Mosaic hops.

Amazingly juicy. Minimal bitterness with tons of flavor. Could drink this for weeks.
