Bomber from a Safeway in Lynwood, WA. Pours golden amber with a very slight head. I can’t parse the aroma. Dusty fruit? Med body. Flavor is something like dusty stone fruit. It’s bitter, and maybe the hop includes citrus. Certainly drinkable. Really gets bitter in the long haul, and that’s a good thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Draft at the pine box. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a dense and wooly tan head. Big bright piney nose, lots of intense dimensional presence; bigger than some ipas for sure. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, toast, and lots of bright pine on the mid palate. Long sharp dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. We both rolled our bottles to loosen sediment. A lot broke free in mine. The result was a very dingy appearance that was kind of brownish copper. A nice beige head. The aroma is full of citrus fruit and especially grapefruit. The first sip gives the exact same thing. Big bitterness that is grapefruit zest. It is dry and bitter. After that I taste pineapple. By midglass that bitterness had moderated and more fruit took its place. A little malt, too, although this is very much hop forward. Tropical fruit grows toward the finish. And then the last 2 sips bring out some coconut. Where did that come from. I liked this beer. It was totally about the north west hops and they are very good.
