Bomber. Bend is one of the hot breweries in PDX it seems. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A nice nose of caramel, resin, lemon. The flavor is certainly good: big resinous fruity sweet hops, balanced with biscuit and honey malt. Lingering big bitterness. Damn nice IIPA. Big bitter and orange finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Bend Brewing Co. in Bend, OR. Big citrus/pine mix in the nose, with some sweetness behind that. Dark streaky blonde. Massive hop hit in initial / fizzy mid with some balance and continuing orange/grapefruit notes / finish grooves the tongue with bitterness. Heavy body. Good stuff. Gets a bit sticky, near cloying in finish -- but overall this was the best (out of ten beers) I had at the brewery restaurant.

Pours a sunny gold with not much white head. Juicy aroma of oranges, grapefruit, lime. This is my kind of double - lots of tropical fruits, citrus, malt balance and a great hop profile. The alcohol is slightly noticeable on the finish along with a citrusy hop bite.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light, cloudy orange appearance. Head hangs around with a fair amount of lace. Aroma is strong. Honey, hops, and sugar. Mouth is pretty light. Taste is very bitter but has a strange wheat like finish. This beer is close to being super tasty, but it could use a few tweaks.
