Gorgeous full hop profile IPA. Pours a bright golden in the body with an aroma of bright tropical and citrus fruits, light caramel malts and honey. A bit zesty and floral with gorgeous grapefruit and tropical notes; pineapple, mango and papaya. Gorgeous brew with lighter bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
$3.99 bomber picked up at Costco, hell yes it feels good to be back in the west. Pours a pale golden somewhat orange color, topped with a creamy beige head. Nose is citrus and pine, sweet hoppy and pungent. Hops flavor is the mainstay; citrus and pine. Light hints of tropical fruit. Moderate bitters, fairly sturdy malt bill. Very likeable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 10.29.14.
A: Grapefruit and tropical fruit. Hop resin is there too as well as some slight ammonia.
A: 3 finger head that is retained. Hazy golden yellow body.
T: Pineapple and tropical fruit dominate. Graham cracker is subtle.
P: Very smooth. More watery than I was expecting.
O: This tasted like Pez candy. It was a bit more muted in flavor compared to the smell. It was in the West Coast style, so it was juicy. People compare this to Fort George/Boneyard/Block 15 3-Way 2014 edition, but I didn’t think it was as good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden and clear with a good pale head. Aroma is super tropical - passionfruit, mango, lychee, citrus blossom, fresh squeezed grapefruit. Light bodied, pleasant level of bitterness with some balancing fruitiness on the palate and a little citric bitterness on the finish. Taste is passionfruit, citrus peel, hints of mango and pawpaw, little grapefruit and a touch of pine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brilliant golden with a tight foamy white head. The nose is slightly bland but has a nice pleassant earthy hop resin and a touch of lemon and pine to back it. Very smooth and quaffable flavor with a leafy floral bitter start, a touch of pine resin, simple pale ale malts to give it a nice drinkability, with enough bitterness to please without taking away from the ability to quaff generously. Not shabby, but I wanted a bit more nuance and body from a bottle logo that uses a silhouette of Oregon. The alcohol is dangerously hidden and you can seriously top off a bomber in 5 minutes.
