22 oz bottle - Pours cloudy orangish with a moderate, lasting head. It has a great citrus hops aroma. There’s a medium body, good, strong hops flavor with a nice citrus addition, and enough malt to support it. The finish is perhaps the only drawback, tasting a little off to me. This is a very solid IPA.

Bottled - LCRBM2 - A copper coloured beer with a lovely welcoming hoppy aroma. The taste has good hop levels with a fine malt balance. Alcohol levels refresh. A tasty enjoyable beer.

Sept. 11, 2006; 22 oz. bomber. Hazy, particulated pour w/ billowy, styrofoam-type head. Thick floral aroma. Attempt to balance the heavy hopping & remarkable bitterness with candyish malts produces a delightfully-chewy brew. I do love the West Coast IPAs.

[2nd Low Countries RateBeer meeting] Aroma of cascade hops and caramel malts.Hazy, orange coloured with an off-white lasting head. Taste is sweet and smooth cascade hoppy. Some malts and fruitiness in it. Just a bit too sweet though, overall a decent ipa.

Smells excellent. Citrusy floral hops. Actually cloudy yellow in appearance. One nice IPA. Great hop flavor from thie beginning, but never gets too dry or bitter. I could drink this again and again and again and...

Bomber. Pours a cloudy, almost murky dark amber with some gold highlights. Huge fruity nose with some pine there, too--nicely managed balancing of the two hop extremes. Body on the light side of medium, with just enough carb to round it out. Some resin comes through in the finish, but the mouth is more of the same from the nose--citrus and pine with enough malt backbone to complement them without getting in their way. Awesome stuff.

22 oz. bomber picked up at Corral a couple of weeks ago. big citrus aroma with a great looking pour of golden orange and very long lasting head and lace. flavor has a nice bitterness to it with all of the hop profile and just enough malt to tie it all together quite nicely. crisp and refreshing.
