3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A drinkable pale ale alternative to SNPA. Bready malt with some citrus. Drinkable but far from my favorite in the APA category.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold. Aroma of floral hop, some citrus but mostly malt. Taste is nice, not very bitter at all, lots of biscuity malt and floral hop, some nutty malt. Medium body and carbonation. Not a very bold APA as far as hops go, but very solid and drinkable. A good entry beer for people that say they don’t like IPA’s. More malty than the old stand-by Sierra Pale.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. This bottle says 5.6% ABV. Pours hazy orange with a thick cream-colored rocky head with excellent retention and cobwebby lace. Aroma is citrusy hops backed by bready malts, neither all that assertive; I also get a bit of grain. Taste is bittersweet and sessionable. Finish is a bit bitter. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium-thin. Mouthfeel is creamy. Overall, a nice APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden orangeish color with a 2 finger head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasing citrusy hops with some faint cereal grains. Taste is citrusy hops with some fruitiness and a nice malty sweetness balancing this out. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is a fine high quality IPA that is highly recommended.

Clear deep honeyish-golden-amber color, steady creamy off-white head. Lemony nose with hints of barnyard(!). Light bodied. Fresh grassy hops, pale malty. Dry hopped? Interesting fresh sample.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear coppery amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is floral and citric. Med + body. Flavor is very hoppy - perfumey/floral and citrus over mildly roasted malt. NW twist indeed. On the right coast they’d surely swear it was an IPA.
