3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a light gold and orange color with substantial foamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus rind and floral hops with a bit of pine resin. The flavor begins with a strong resiny hops and grapefruit citrus presence with notes of lemon, orange and pine. Also a subtle toasted caramel and malt character but for the most part the hops rule. The body is slightly creamy with moderate carbonation and a final dose of citrusy hops bitterness in the finish. Another quality addition to the PDX IPA scene.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at the Portland Craft on Main Street in Vancouver during VCBW 2012. Pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head with some decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pale malts. Taste is dominated by grapefruit bitterness with enough of a malty sweet backbone to carry this one off nicely.Generously carbonated with a medium body. A really nicely done brew for the style and very bold.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Amber in color, slight haze, large frothy off-white head, light carbonation, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet citrus and hopped up nose.   Smooth on the tongue, sweet pithy notes, hoppy but not biting.   Could use a little more zing.   However, its very clean and it doesn’t seem like 7.3% ABV at all.   Very smooth on the tongue.   Finishes a bit oily, but not too bitter.   Reminds somewhat sweet, with a citrus background.   This is just too easy to drink.   Well done!   Picks up a bit of tropical fruit as it warms even further.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a aroma of citrus and some resin. The flavor is grapefruit and other citrus up front, with a maltier middle that leads to a balanced hoppy aftertaste.

2013-01-12, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Hazy golden color; creamy head. The aroma is hoppy, very fresh, with notes of toffee. The mouthfeel is very smooth, semi-dry; good malt and toffee flavor, with a very fresh and refreshing hopping. Long final, balanced.
2012-08-08, bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey, 8-4-7-5-15=39
Hazy light amber color; medium sized head. Expressive aroma, harmonious citrus fruits mix. Very good toffee flavor, lean body, smooth mouthfeel; fresh hopping, with loads of soft resins and nice fruity touch; long final; overall, powerful but balance and well drinkable.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours orange amber with a creamy/bubbly white head. For me the aroma is both citrus and resin. Med + body. Frothy carb. Flavor is resin, floral and citrus. It’s lush. So good it could be bottle conditioned. Every quaff is a dream. Finish is bitter, but not humongously so. Excellent ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours an amber-orange with a medium white head and good lacing.
smell is of hops, some pine, citrus, and a tad bit of caramel.
taste is refreshing yet creamy, caramel, bitter, and some citrus, smells better than it tastes but still a descent brew. ends with a growing bitterness.
