Poured on tap at The Beer Belly it pours a deep copper color with a nice head. It has some grapefruit and pine on the nose. Also some floral notes. Taste has grapefruit up front with more citrus. After that there is some bitterness and bready malts. Good finish.

Has some nice fruity aromas and taste. Hops over power this one a bit in the finish, has an almost soapy fruit finish. Some hops are a hit or miss with me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy butterscotch with a large off-white head that slowly dissipates with very nice lacing. Aroma is pine resin, citrus, light caramel. Flavor is about the same with a very light sweetness and a light to medium bitter hops presence with a bitter finish. Not a bad beer at all.

Bomber. Pours a hazy straw with no head. Grapefruit aroma and flavor, pine and malt. Not bad but it’s put together a bit sloppy.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours light gold with a frothy near white head. Aromas of citrus and resin. Med body. Flavor is citrus/resin with a phenolic touch. There’s a mild caramel backbone. This is a strongly flavored beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice, slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of fresh grassy and citrus hops with a bit of pineapple, resin and a hint of alcohol noticeable as well. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive grassy and herbal hops with a very potent and nice malt backbone, a lot of resin and a dry, almost oaky flavour. Aftertaste shows some alcohol, tons of malt, some herbal and dry notes and a lot of hops - very bitter, but very nice. Overall, this is a very nice IPA and definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, California on 05-August-2012 for US$5.77 sampled at home in Washington on 04-November-2012.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mellow - grassy hops with some citrus, kind of a light-struck characteristic going on despite the brown bottle, low-profile malt notes and slightly bready. Pours a very clear light golden color, white head with average retention, good lacing. Flavor - fairly bitter, fruity hops, a touch of resin, light cereal grains. Light-medium body, medium carbonation. Not my favorite of Eagle Rock’s brews, but decent.
