3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a respectable Northwest IPA that goes down smooth. It pours a clear amber with little head or lacing. At first it seems aggressive but ultimately wins you over with a nice hop/malt balance.

Even toned bronze with thin white head. Not much aroma , but taste is sweet yet drinkable with a light, herbal hop buzz.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A sweet floral hop nose with big caramel. The flavor is strawberries, caramel, toasted malt, perfume hops, some fruity hops, very low bitterness. OK. Lacks balance and bitterness at all.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and resin notes with some floral character and biscuit malt. The flavor is full of pine, resin and oranges. The biscuit malt keeps the bitterness low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger foamy/creamy light beige head. Which does some ring lacing. Aroma is sort of sweet burnt malt (not black - just singed) with some hop that’s light pitted fruit. Kind of a creme brulee aspect here. Med + body. Flavor is very hoppy - mostly light pitted fruit, but a little floral, not get citrus, but arguably a bit of resin. The caramel is moderately but seriously toasted/roasted. Finishing damn hoppy - but not NW harsh and burning. Sort of earthy finish. Good stuff.
