COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the winter sun hangs low in our sky, some 93 million miles away, solar filaments, giant arcs of cool, dense plasma explode from its surface. Filament Winter IPA celebrates this cosmic wonder. Pale, Munich and Caramel malts create a rich malt character with a honey-like flavor. A bounty of Crystal, Chinook and Centennial hops combine to lend spicy, citrus hop notes.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and citrusy, with hints of graham cracker. Taste/Palate: sweet and crisp; finish is long and bitter. Slightly on the bitter side of a perfect hop/malt balance, but still a glorious beer!

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.

Nice, hoppy and not overbearing winter brew. Hoppy aroma and a golden color to accent the overall pleasing palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 22. Appearance is the standard IPA profile. Aroma has a piney, spruce smell to it. Flavor is hoppy then spicy with a bitter finish.

neepsntatties (1697) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2013
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.

22 oz bottle shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a lasting fizz head. Sweet caramel like aroma. Flavor is a very nice balance of hops and toasty malts. Ideal winter IPA. Very tasty.

Clear deep golden hue with a fluffy, foamy, off white head. Big resiny and leafy nose of earthy hops. Crisp and big hoppy flavor with a ton of earthy leafy hops, lots of bitterness, a bit of grapefruit rind, a bit of floral bitterness, and a bit of boozy undertones.

Bomber from Mile High. This is a really good looking beer, to start things off. The body is a rich amber color and very clear with a persistent white head and thick lacing on the goblet. Lots of hops in the aroma impart an earthy, piney character. The palate is fairly hefty and well carbonated. They certainly were heavy handed with the crystal malt, but were just as generous with the hops for balance. Strong back-end bitterness hits the mouth with a sweet caramel flavor and notes of cedar, pine, and a little citrus. I’m glad this one attenuated well, it keeps the caramel malt character in check. This is not a hop-bomb, but rather a big, bold, well-balanced IPA. I like.

douglas88 (8090) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2013
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.
