3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Fremont, Seattle - 08/11/12.
Lightly hazed mid amber wih a thin off white head that clears to the edge and forms a small pond that retains well.
Nose comprises floral hops, light pine, hints of orange.
Taste is caramel malt, sweet sugars, sweet tropical fruits, sweet mango.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter sweet finish.
Sweet is the theme, a little to so, decent enough and drinkable but let down by being too sweet for me!

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.
