3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange gold color, with a mild but pleasant aroma of hops and little malt. Flavor is relatively dry and clean, crisp malt with a balance of fairly uninteresting hop bitterness. This is a very balanced IPA, which is it’s strength, but it lacks much of interest. I do not get maple syrup in this at all. Good on it’s own terms, but not one I need to come back to.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bomber. Citrus hops on the nose, maple is prevalent in the taste, but not overpowering. The best of the 60/75/90.

Drank from a 750 ml bottle served in a short pilsner glass. Very thick, fluffy head and a sweet pleasant hops aroma. Orange with light amber and a bit of cloudiness with a good amount of bubbles. Strong hops flavor with some additional sweetness and complexity that I'm guessing comes from the maple, although maple flavor isn't obvious. Great smooth palate.

Drank out of 750ml bottle in to short pilsner glass at home. Aroma- light notes of orange and hops. Not overwhelming. Appearance- light golden orange with frothy head and some carbonation. Makes you want to guzzle it. Very appealing Taste- good light flavor with smoky hops taste. A little more bitter than most IPAs. Palate- lightly burnt mouthfeel but not bad aftertaste. A little bitter as well. Overall- good IPA. Not the best but not bad at all

Bottle share from a big bottle. Pours very light in color, large amount of white head. The floral quality of the hops comes through in the aroma, along with a slight alcohol smell. It has a good malt background, the hops aren’t overwhelming up front, but come through alot in the aftertaste. Definitely tastes like a combination of 60 and 90 minute IPA, but I couldn’t taste any maple syrup. Overall a solid IPA from one of my favorite breweries. I would drink it again.
