From the bottle, and from the tap.
Tap experience is always better, the perpetual freshness of the brew is evident in the keg, packs a nice mango flavor with some citrus notes immediately after, has a nice hoppy finish, a go to IPA for sure.
Breakside bring on the Double-IPAS!!
From the bottle the whole body of the IPA seems a wee bit heavier, I think I may be getting sourced some older bottles of the beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Trader Joe’s. Crystal clear copper in color upon pouring. First whiff is pungent grapefruit peel and is followed by some underlying tropical fruit notes. Hopped up front with some grapefruit and a solid malt base. A little sweetness follows. Dry hoppy finish. A little bit of a syrupy sweet quality as well. Nice and clean, like a well brewed beer should be.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Watering Hole for American Beer Week: Oregon. Served in a shaker pint. Nice amber color with a modest off-white head. Big aromas of resin and grapefruit. Malts show on the palate through a hint of sweetness but overall this is a fruity, citrusy IPA. Great refreshingly tart citrus finish.

Thanks Dianna for sending.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking slightly hazy to semi - transparent bronzed brown to burnt orange color. The head was just a film of white foaminess just lightly gracing the top of the glass nicely.
The smell had a dry to sweet pine to grapefruit-esque sort of underspiced slight pepper. Mmmmm. ..really nice.
The taste was basically a dry sort of sweet citrus to underlying pine. A light dry citrus aftertaste accompanies a quick sweet sticky citrus/pine finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation sat nice for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was an extremely nice AIPA I would definitely bang again.

Draft @ Rogue Broadway. Amber, slight haze, thin head. Abundant grapefruit and pine, light caramelly malts. Fruity, pithy, grapefruit, sweetish finish like grapefruit soda. It is on the chewier side, cali-style.
