3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle thanks to Harrymel, appreciate it. Hazy orange color, super milkshake-like head, good lace. Smells slightly hoppy, a bt of malts running around, eh. The flavor had a real nice bitterness to it but that was all I could pick up from the hops. Malts were there but ambiguous. Overall, not a bad IPA but not what Iím looking for from the Northwest.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to Matt (mfavoino) for sending this guy my way. Bomber served in a Bellís stemmed tulip.
A: Pours a chilled orange color with some a big foamy head forming on the pour. Great retention. It recedes slowly to a massively thick ring and leaves great, sticky webbing down the whole glass.
S: Nice tropical fruit bursts. Some pineapple and melon. Sweet doughy malts on the back end.
T: Nice pear, apple and mango flavors. Thereís a little grass in the middle and the finish is cleansing sweetness from some cracker-like malts.
M: Medium to light bodied and a solid carbonation level makes this guy an easy drinker.
O: This was very, very solid and highly drinkable. I was stunned at the price point ($5.99) for this guy and would be frequently buy it if I had access. Great value beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden colour with a massive white head. The aroma is lovely. Soft zesty citrus and some light tropical fruit. Lean bodied and fairly dry. Great palate with a fairly moussey body and a nice balance of malt and hops. Fresh and fairly bright. Quite a nice surprise. Too strong to be a session brew - but it has those characteristics.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, creamy head. Very nice malt aroma, malt mash. Nice malt flavor; the bitterness is high, the hop gives just a light citrusy touch.
Donít expect much of a West Coast style beer, just a good old IPA.

Drinkable. Not overly bitter. Little aroma. :/. You're average IPA. Would recommend as a starter IPA.
