Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours translucent gold with a near white head. There’s a cooked stone fruit aroma, backed by some citrus and caramel. Med body or better. Flavor is citrus, peach, maybe pine. With caramel. There’s a slight hop burn. Finishing bitter, and towards dry. Very fruity. Very hoppy. Nice stuff.

Amber color with large frothy head. Citrusy, piney aroma. Taste - grapefruit and pine along with some tropical fruit notes. Ample balancing malt. Although it's got a full body flavor it has a light and crisp palate. Great tasting west coast IPA.

Nose is grassy, pineapple. Flavor is same plus some dank, pine, grapefruit rind, toasted grain, simplistic crystal malt sweetness. If the malt side had a little more depth and slightly less sweetness this would be my perfect nw ipa.

Bottle. Bright hazy orange. Aroma and taste are tangerine and tropical fruit with pine and a perfect malt balance. Medium to full body, lively carb, and a pretty rich finish. Really awesome. (From memory, forgot this one last night)

On tap at Marciero it pours a golden copper with a foamy off-white head & a deliciously pungent pine & citrus aroma. Medium to full bodied with a fairly dry finish. The taste is a wonderful mix of citrus & pine plus enough malts to support the hops. Great stuff.
