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!

Nice, hoppy and not overbearing winter brew. Hoppy aroma and a golden color to accent the overall pleasing palate.

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.

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.

bottle from belmont station-- sawdust, malt vinegar & caramel aromas, clear yellow orange under modest off white head, shifting flavor balance, the parts don’t blend but they do, woodsy hops and caramel, with smoke, lemon and black pepper.. full spectrum on the pallet & in the finish. A lot of media praise for this new brewery.

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.
