Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Well balanced and flavorful. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Recommended.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells of grapefruit and pineapple maybe with a little bit if pear, really fruity. Pouts clear golden straw colour with a fine white head, looks of low carbonation.
Tastes good, bright fruity flavours with pine, juniper and spicy, which I think hides the sweetness. Medium body, dry finish, very drinkable and very refreshing but there is something off with the body.
This beer comes together unlike others and it is very tasty and somewhat unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber split with my wife. Gold amber, clear with frothy white head, irregular lacing. Aroma of caramel, pine, warm cat piss. Nothing particularly citrusy to my nose, which is a shame since that’s why this was suggested to me when I asked for the beer clerk’s recommendation. Anyway, medium-full body, lasting bitter pine mixed with caramel finish. A reasonable, somewhat typical, pacific NW ipa, solid and pleasant, and $5/bomber ain’t bad.
