Bottle - pours a nice clear copper with thick head. Nose of hops, grass, and grain. Taste balance between hop and grass. Oily mouthfeel. Very dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Fits description on bottle with the exception of the citrus notes. They ate there but the bitterness washes them over with a more thick carmely taste. Overall a decent easy drinker exp if you like something on the bitter side.

Poured from 22 oz bomber 4-23-14. Fantastic sticky off white head that lingers. Cloudy dark honey color. High carbonation. Great orange hop scent. Medium bitter finish.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle:   Barnish and a bit stale sort of IPA.   Has some mealy bits, kinda husky, with a moderately bitter background.   Great head and lacing, but not bright on the tongue.   Has some alfalfa notes to it, which is odd.   Feels clean despite the barnish/musty and odd husky alfalfa bits.   Bitterness lingers quite long.   Pretty smooth otherwise.   Could stand to be without those mealy and husky alfalfa notes.   Otherwise its decent.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear light amber color. Nose is very light and hard to detect, though I could get some slight floral elements off it. Taste was moderately bitter, but the hops werenít all that satisfyingly bitter. Just didnít sit well with me.

hopwine (288) - Bend, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2014
One of the most average forgettable IPAs Iíve had in a while. Hop profile is pretty characterless and one noted. Malt backbone does a decent job of supporting the hops, but they really need to spice up the hop profile with some more interesting cutting edge hop varietals if they want to keep up with the intense competition in the pnw.

pdx77 (1316) - Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2014
From bottle. Full golden color. Aroma is tart citrus, bread, and some lightly bitter grass notes. Taste is tart and sweet tropical fruit, sweet malt, and grapefruit. Prickly hop presence, but not bitter, nicely balanced. Citrus and tart hints in the finish.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber with a slight white head. Aroma might suggest Mosaic hops. Or not. Med body. Flavor is mildly roast malt supporting a decent amount of hop. Citrus yes. Mosaic? Probably not. Itís certainly bitter, and certainly fruity. Itís on the soft side of NW. But I donít think it fits East Coast. :) A good, bitter beer. So far itís underrated (whatís this balance sh**?) Iím really liking it. Striving to find passionfruit, but Iíll settle for citrus, hoppy and bitter. Settle? No. Enjoying!!!

Bomber. Strong caramel and light hops. Solid bitterness throughout but it is not well balanced with the caramel. Lingering bitter finish that is also a bit off.
