3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer pours honey golden and is hazy. A fluffy off white head is nice and leaves sticky lacing. I smell pine and caramel. Pine and floral hops are tasted and they leave a long lasting dry bitterness for an after taste. But soon that after taste fades and it becomes very clean. I also taste yeast and pale malts. Fruit is tasted and it is both citrus and tropical. Despite all of the hop notes this is tilted toward sweetness and the malts are in front. This is an interesting beer. It is very tasty but also very subtle. Plenty of good stuff to satisfy the serious beer geek but not so much to put off the novice.

22 oz bottle- Pours golden orange with a one finger pillowy white head that leaves a ring of nice lace. Aroma is sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste is sweet light malt, well balanced, hops are there imparting a mild dry finish, not really getting any usual citrus and maybe a little pine. Body is medium and carbonation is medium. Not bad.

Pours a hazy amber with a frothy head. Resinous hop aroma with tangerine hints as well. Flavors of resinous hops as well. Very little hop bitterness and hints of orange with decent malt backbone. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy opaque dark amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of big resinous hops, truckloads of tropical fruits, especially tangerine, and big caramel malt. Flavour brings out shitloads of bitter resinous hops, loads of oranges, and a big caramel malt backbone. Finishes dry and bitter, but also with some residual sugars. The malt profile is perhaps too prominent for my tastes; however, this is still a well-made big fat juicy IPA. Solid, but not my thing.

Great IPA. Not super hoppy but delicious round flavor. Carmel flavor, I taste a bit of brown ale. This is an unexpectedly good craft-brew IPA.

On tap at Ellensburg Pasta Co. Classic medium amber with a dense sandy cored head. Lots of grapefruit hoppiness in the aroma with a mild biscuity malt character as well. Flavor is near ideal. Big fresh citrus hops and just enough sweet light malts to compliment. Moderately bitter but so tasty. Creamy soft palate and easy on be carbonation. Very nice !

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz. can poured into my ipa glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a thick frothy white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but wow its an amazingly citrusy hop bomb. Mouthfeel is between light and medium with ok carbonation and a dry finish. All the rumors I’ve heard of this being one of the best ipas on the market are true. I will be seeking this out on a regular basis for now on, but it tends to sell fast.

Pours quite clear golden with a large, pillowy white head. Aroma has a huge C-hop presence, basically like picking a cascade cone off the vine, opening it up, and inhaling. That comes through in the flavor as well, along with a bit of biscuit and a medium-bitter finish. Light and drinkable, but at 7% maybe deceptively so.
