3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Belmont. Pours a clear dark copper color with a large off-white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is big herbal tea, oranges, caramel. The flavor is slightly yeasty, some caramel, spices, malt forward, oranges, light bitterness. Very earthy and smooth. Almost woody. Good, but not what many will expect from a IPA.

Bottle:   Looks good, smells like a moderately hopped example.   Clean bitter start, smooth, soft pith and a touch of citrus peel on the back.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Moderate to strong hop bitterness on the backside.   Almost could use a touch more sweetness and malt strength to balance it out.   As is, would be a hop lovers dream despite it smelling a bit average, it packs a hoppy punch.   Decent offering, fairly solid.

Bottle at home continuing Oregon themed memorial day. Pours golden amber with fine beige head. Nose is light hops and caramel. Tastes of light piney hops, caramel, earthy bitterness, tea, some pepperiness, light honey sweetness. Standard yet solid enough IPA not sure all that wintery it’s 80 degrees out and this is plenty enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber bough from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
Pours a clear dark orange with a very large bubbly yet thick and creamy head.
Rich and malty noce,bready,honeyish but also hops put in a good appearance citric.slight resin.
Flavour is decidely on the malt side and is pretty sweet almost too candy sugar sweet for my liking...Sweet toffee..a little hop in the end..not really my thing.
Moutheel is OK..the best thing is the hops show up after the beer goes down the gullet.
Not impressed..its not bad but not something i would look out again.

On draught at Ecliptic Brewing. Clear golden color with fizzy bubbles. Aroma is citrus hops and light sweet malts. Taste is honey, caramel malts, orange and other citrus. Hops and malts are very well-balanced with hardly any bitterness on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Ecliptic. Colour...light amber with a thin ecru head. Nose...dry earth and dusty hops. Palate...lightly bitter with hops up front and a smattering of toffee chips. Mid palate there’s a somewhat oily characteristic but not in a bad way, and then the chinooks really make their presence known! The finish is quite hoppy and has hints of orange pekoe tea and cedar box.
