3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Moderately cloudy, deep golden to amber colour with average to huge, thick, firm, fluffy, frothy, long lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma with a cautious touch of peanut, fruity hoppy overtones with hints of honeydew melon, watermelon, rhubarb, a touch of wax. Taste is bitter hoppy, minimally grassy and herbal, slightly fruity, hints rhubarb and melon again, a fruit acidic tart touch, caramel malty basis is minimally strawy, a spicy touch of hay as well. Doesn’t knock my socks off.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber drank while on holiday, brought from home. Unclear orange color, medium to full sized quite dense off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops, nicely fruity, grapefruit, slightly peach, pine. Taste malts, hops, grapefruit, fruit hops, moderate to full bitterness. Medium body, medium to full carbonation. Solid IPA, good fruit hops, good bitterness, only a little bit too highly carbonated. Nice beer for sure.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice yellow pour. Great hop aroma. 22 oz. bomber purchased in hood river . Very fresh taste. Perfect (to this palate) light malt that does not overpower the the delicious bold hop flavor. Very well done and recommended

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good, dense and firm yellowish head, leaving lace over clear metallic orange-golden beer. Fruity hops, but also slightly cheesy/catty. Cilandro, celeri, bit earthy after a while. Fruity, bitter hops, mellowing with time. Again slightly earthy and vegetable - beetroot? Some citruspeel. Hopoil viscosity, medium bodied at least, rather well-carbonated. Earthiness stands out. Decent, but certainly not worldbeating.
