Bomber: Pours a nice copper colour with a medium foamy white head. Strong aroma of Grapefruit citrus, resiny pine. Flavour not as bitter as expected but very tasty.

Bomber from jake65 - thanks, Jake! Sweet aroma hops, big time PNW grapefruit and lychee and faint pine with a decidedly more exotic touch: big-time mango! Touch of rubbing alcohol. Excitable brew, inches and inches of long-lasting whitish head, orange body. Taste is extremely fruity and hoppy, floral and perfumed, but the bitterness level is low and the dry aftertaste resounds with fresh-baked bread and earthy caramel. An interesting combination. Citrus is really amped. Bit of dust and white pepper. Perfect session body with a little prickling carbonation and some interesting hop/resin-based texture. A touch too sweet for volume drinking, but I’m not worried about over-scoring. A lot of flavor here, and very appealing.

Bottle. Pours a nice copper color with a small amout of head. Initial aroma is of hops and a mild amout of malt. The hoppiness and citrus tones hit the palate and are smoothed out with a twinge of maltiness. Enjoyed this beer.

Nice malt backbone to a distinctly Northwestern America IPA. Pour amber/gold with creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt and citrus and floral hops, especially orange and grapefruit with a hint of perfume. The flavor is moderately bitter and moderately sweet. The sweetness balances the bitterness a bit too much. That makes it an easy drinking IPA especially with its medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 10/20/07 On draught at the Capitol Hill brewery. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops forward, with a very light sweet malt balance. Appearance is a hazy yellow gold with a low white head. Flavor is highly bitter hops forward, grassy with sweet citrus and some earthiness. It’s well banaced with the sweet malt but not integrated. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with a medium carb feel. Overall, strong and interesting, but just needs the flavors to be better merged.
2/20/09 On draft at Elysian Capitol Hill, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is an even c-hop and caramel blend, simple but satisfying. Appearance is hazy orange with a well maintained white head. Flavor is a blend of very sweet malt and very sour hops; bittering is relatively low for an ipa. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium, slightly spritzy carb texture. Overall, just not that easy drinking.

Aroma – Deep Hops with a slight malt
Appearance – Deep amber, clear as a bell and a good white head
Flavor – This was a thick hopped IPA flavor with a good malt background.
Palate – Had a clean taste and was a great beer from start to finish.
Overall –This was a great IPA and the extra added hops added to the overall flavor. Great BEER!!!

Taster at Tangle Town Brew Pub
A light amber color with a white frothy head. This had hops from the start to the finish. This was a deep IPA. A great hoppy beer for those who love the hops. It was a deep banana and grapefruit aroma and taste. Great stuff.

riversideAK (6079) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Aroma of citrus and funky hops. Pours amber gold. Flavor is a moderate citrus and funky sweatsocks bitterness with some noticable toasty caramel malt, but just for balance. Finishes with a lingering dryness. It is very well balanced and easy drinking.

Not much head but still looks ok. Little appley aroma. Apple and grapefruit flavor with a hoppy finish. Just the right amount of bitterness for a regular IPA. Nice.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2007
On tap at Capital Hill Brewery. Copper-orange color. Strong hop aroma. A typical Northwest IPA. It is all about the Northwest hops. Its only failing is the lack of malt characteristic I look for in an IPA. This with a Indian curry would be great!
