Murky gold with a quickly dissipating head. Big piny hop smell. Bitter front but mellows out real smooth. Light floral leftover taste is nice.

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours light amber with a rich white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a bitter hoppy finish.

651mL thanks to brainlair! Pours clear golden with moderate white foam. Nice lace. Nose is a bit wort oxidized with apple, juice box, browning apple slices. Taste is richer, thick butterscotch, richer citrus peel balance. Solid, but probably oxidized during wort transfer.

Flat Tail brewery, Draft: This is my favorite Flat Tail beer. Good color, strong hop aroma. Crisp. Very drinkable and safe...especially coming from Flat Tail which brews a LOT of different style of beers. You never know what you are going to get.

Cloudy apricot color. Foam is off-white and fairly persistent. Aroma is citrus and faint pine. Body is not light, but refreshing. A good IPA.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Super clear, light orange and copper coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall just off-white head with almost no movement at all. Aroma of pine, light hops, resin, flowers and a hint of perfumey hops - not much malt or alcohol here at all. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong perfumey and floral hop flavours with not much malt, some light fruity sweetness and a subdued bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows a little of the hops, but in an odd way - just perfume and flowers, some light malt and not much else - this was fairly weak. Overall, a very sub-standard IPA, especially by PNW standards! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Pearl), Oregon on 27-April-2013 for US$4.29 sampled at home in Washington on 04-September-2013.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark hazy gold with a slight creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma of slightly singed malt with a lot of nose pounding hop. Near full body. Flavor is making me think of a tripel hopped NW style. I’m imagining Belgian yeast/spice ester things. It is very smooth, but seems to have a hint of earth. And there’s a lot of hops of every sort of flavor. Complex flavor wise, but brilliant effing ale.
