Pours a hazy amber with nice lacing white head. Aromas of lemon citrus and pine notes with some sweet malt as well. Very piney initial taste with lemon citrus flavors following. A sweet bread taste balances out the tart/bitter citrus. Very balanced and flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pour is slightly orange gold, mostly clear with a nice foamy white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma is beautiful pine and citrus character, some maltiness. Taste is citrusy hops with a balanced sweetness. The pine and bitterness really come through. Nice pineapple and grapefruit flavor as it warms a bit.Classic IPA, very smooth and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a very hazy amber color with a large white head on it. Nose is very floral and quite fresh, and reminds me a lot of spring. Taste is well balanced and not too bitter, and tastes pretty fresh, too. Good brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber sent from Idaho as a gift. Thin head with lacing. Pine and citrusy hops but unlike a lot of IPA varieties it has a pretty decent malt backbone that's a bit biscuity. A good mix. I think the 65 IBU range is the sweet spot for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 8-oz. (I think) hotel glass
From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho
Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 20, 2013
Poured a honey orange color with 1-to-2 fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles coming up. Uneven sporadic lacing on the sides. Below average retention on the top.
The smell initially reminded me of an orange creamsicle. Got orange, nectarine, some grapefruit and sweet floral notes. Very nice on the nose.
Tasted not quite as explosive as the nose, but still good nonetheless. Got orange peel, orange, nectarine, grapefruit, pretty bitter, floral hops, citrus hops and tropical notes.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter finish.
Very tasty beer. Would love to try it again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Bobís.
Pours a rich maize with a full white head that leaves extensive lacing along the sides of my tulip glass. In addition to pine, the nose presents a range of fruit: pineapple, lemon, and uncommonly, a powerful hit of strawberry. Juicy flavor, grapefruit and lemon, restrained cracker malts. Plenty drinkable.
Itís hard to knock it out of the park with a straight-ahead IPA these days -- too much competition out there -- but this is just the kind I like, juicy and aromatic, tropical fruit, not an overwhelming bitter oil finish, malts that know their place. A really nice offering for my first taste of 10 barrel.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is kind of stinky! It kind of smells like old socks along with faint grapefruit and vegetal offnotes. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a long-sustaining white head that leaves lace. Taste is not as bad as the aroma, but itís a really basic IPA profile. Weird.
