COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northwest twist on a Pale Ale, with a bright and deep golden color and a crisp citrusy nose. Although hop-forward, this ale is well balanced with a light, biscuity malt body that finishes dry. Balance and drinkability is what you will experience in this excellent session beer!

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a ridiculously thick pillowy white head on it. Nose is light and slightly hoppy with a few fruity citrus elements coming through. Taste is a little bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end and some citrus elements poking through. Decent beer.

Bottle from hometown mini mart in Cashmere. Sweet fruity nose. Beautiful foamy head. Great crisp hoppy flavor that was not too dry. Closer to IPA than pale ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bomber, pours a slightly hazy orange color with a fizzy white head that faded quickly and leaves spotty soapy lacing. Smells of pine, citrus and caramel. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with great carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this is a pretty solid pale ale. Well balanced flavor and stays true to the northwest style. Brewed for ECC this year. Wish it was available year round.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bombers from PD (one drunk fresh, one a month later). Clear orange-amber pour with a fair amount of sediment left in the bottle. Head is short, white and leaves heavy lace. Nose is citrus hops and some honey-on-toast malts. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation; more rounded than crisp, especially the later bottle. Citrus, some pine, toast, light honey and grapefruit. Finish is biscuit and citrus zest. Excellent, I hope ABC make this a year-round ale.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On draught at Daily Grill in the Seattle Sheraton. This was brewed in honor of the Emerald City Comic Con. The beer pours a slightly hazy dark amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and caramel. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper-amber with a lovely half-inch, dense head. Aroma a mix of caramel sweetness and piney hops and a touch of citrus. Flavor is upfront toasty/biscuit malt nicely balanced by moderately bitter hops. Nice crisp finish. A nice, very drinkable pale ale.
