3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking amber pour. Aroma is big piney NW hops with solid sweet malt tones. The flavour is all hops, finishing quite bitter. Not much malt complexity, but nice hop profile. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the World Craft Beer Tasting 2013 in Osaka. Intriquing sweet fruity nose, orange blossoms and lemon. Decently hoppy initial / very mild and balanced in mid / fades out in final w/o much in the way of hop tracks. Nice aroma and a subtle sweetness. Good session IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From IGA market in Sequim, WA. Pours a hazy amber with a nice sized off-white head. Sticky lacing rings. The nose is full hops with pine and citrus. Medium in body. Resin in the mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance of caramel malts and the hops. Some bitterness in the finish, but mostly it is grapefruit. Solid IPA. Good.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aromas of resin, citrus. Massive amounts of carbonation with huge pillowing white head, great lacing, hazy Amber in color. Malt, caramel, bitterness, tropical fruit, floral flavors I imagine this isn’t very fresh and would probably be pretty tasty fresh, another reason I wish it was dated.

Bomber. This particular beer was crap. Way to carbonated. Was a waste of my money.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance pours a cloudy orange amber supporting a steady head leaving fair curtain of lace. Smell has a sweet citrus piney aroma with caramel malt. Taste has an upfront hit of hops with grapefruit citrus backed by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, dark amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma escaping the bottle immediately after opening it was wonderwul, tropical fruits and pine cones in abundance. When poured into the glass, it’s still nice, but the maltyness is a bit too evident I think. Some caramel and bready notes. In the flavor the bitterness is king, but the caramel, bready malts do what they can to smoothen it out. Pine cones, some pineapple and a grassy touch too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with citrus peel, canned pineapples syrup and bitterness. Fortunately not as malty as the initial flavor. Certainly a beer I could drink more of, even though I prefer my IPA’s less malty. 130630
