4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper color with a moderate white head on it. This one is extremely fragrant. The nose has a lot of citrus in there, with grapefruit and some thick dankness. Taste isn’t too bitter, actually, and has a fresh thickness to it with a slightly sweet finish. Really pleasant drink.

Surprisingly delicious. Solid malt backbone with hints of bread, nuts and hay complemented by a wonderfully complex hop profile -- and one that doesn’t smack you in the face. Grassy, earthy, citrusy and piney. Balanced bitterness lingers nicely into the aftertaste. Very tasty IPA.

Hands down a great IPA. It has the tropical and borddrline BO hopiness of the state of the art imperials but toned down enough and balanced to make an exceptional IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Mostly clear paler orange, generous white foamy head slowly settles and lasts. Sharp citric pine aroma. Totally hop forward, sticky pine needles, tons of bitter grapefruit, floral and earthy, very light malt presence. Average carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Calms and sweetens a bit as it warms. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle from douglass88. Pours a nice orange with tons of white fluffy head. Aroma is strong grapefruit hops with minimal malt. Flavor is lots of grapefruit and citrus, minimal backbone. Incredibly drinkable, could have a lot of this.

22oz in Seattle. Pale gold, white foam. Great fresh hop aroma, green pine, a little alc. Smooth funk, pine and off-citrus. Tasty fresh IPA. Good NW profile, in fact, this could be the quintessential NW ipa. Lovely

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light orange pour. Fairly mild up front, but a long-lingering pine/grapefruit flavor follows. Crisp, slightly acerbic. Finishes really, really clean. Nice.
