Bomber -
Grassy, weedy, earthy hop aroma. Fairly heavy, kinda' sticky and resiny in taste.
Needed to pour a little aggressively, but did get about an 1.5 inch darker head with good stamina. Somewhat cloudy with a darker yellow color to a golden amber. Some lacing, but the head does settle out before the drink is done.
Flavor seems to approach the aroma quite closely. Firm to aggressive bitterness on the extended finish leaving a strong grapefruit quality to the experience. There appears to be a heavy malt character that I'm trying to pinpoint, but it could just be the heaviness of the hops. There is a touch of sweetness, but the presence of the bitterness is what stays with me. Fairly full-bodied with the carbonation helping it out, but it holds a good softness in the feel.
This one is growing on me as I think about it and take additional pulls, however, in the end it is the mix of hops that doesn't overly impress, or at least impress enough to say "I'll have another".
