Bomber from local mom and pop shop in Milwaukie OR. Amazing that even small "7/11" type shops in Oregon have good beer. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow...thin head. Nose is combo of a bread-y malt with tropical fruits; taste is pretty smooth for a hoppy IPA. TASTY.

SX Bottle Share, Chelmsford Ale House, Essex, 1/3/2016.
White lacing. Aroma is cats piss, a tad socky and sweaty. A bit of oxidisation is seeping through. Taste is signature Simcoe, too much crystal, some orange peel. Dry. Nice drinkability. Not bad.

Pours that cloudy brown that signals a good malt backbone with a frothy head. Minimal hop aroma with a good biscuit maltness. A nice malt flavours but a bit watery.

Bottle from Brewfest. Light copper withlasting white head and lace. Very mild spicy bready woody piney aroma. Bready toasty nutty malts and piney woody spicy herbal hop bitterness. Medium full body, a little chewy. Seems pretty old school average to me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is caramelly and mid-malty with a slight citric touch. Taste is maltforward with a dose of heavy and "settled" fruityness. Ripe and sweet dark fruits. Slight resinous and piney. Strong bitterness with some attitude. If you like your IPA’s more laidback and classic with a not so hop forward profile, this is your stuff.
