Pours an hazy orange .....Tastes of malt burnt orange and light pine. Expected more of a westo coast IPA......tastes almost like a ESB.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing. Aroma is floral citruses with a light pine and a lightly sweetened malt backing. Flavor is similar. Sweeter floral citruses with some pines and a somewhat sweet caramel malt backing. Finishes with a light pine, earth, and citrus as well as a light caramel sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Fairly well hopped and enjoyable. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Aroma is cascadian hops and slight caramel sweetness. First is creamy and hoppy. Chinook hops? Aftertaste is slightly oil-slick. Hop flavour stays with you.

bottled, clear golden color with white foam head, didnt really detect much hops for an IPA, mostly a bitter cardboard flavor with some caramel notes

maekchu (3513) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2012
Bomber shared with Red -- a "porch beer" in PDX. Sweetish, grassy, mown hay aroma. A real beauty: orange-gold, with a small creamy white head, Subdued deep bitter initial; dirty hop mid palate. Thin-medium body. Pleasant, dark-toned hops provide the most enjoyable component.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Chill hazed light amber color with ivory sheen. grassy, mild skunk, peppery, dry herbal aromas. medium body. Grassy, sry spicy hop flavors with a dusty bready pale malt base--drying finish--not too bad.
