4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from PD, tap at E9 and PW in the past. Slightlty hazy, gold-orange pour with a medium white bead leaving moderate lace. Nose is peaches, oranges and pine. Medium body and fine carbonation with a nice hoppy oiliness that lends a slickness. Pine, biscuit, oranges and ganja. Finish is medium length, with a continued tropical fruit sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. Hops are prominent in this one, but not at the expense of a firm malt underbody that supports and even peeks through. Love this IPA and will watch for more good things from Good Life.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours slightly hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma is incredibly hoppy. Lots of sweet fruit and citrus. Maybe a little pine. Med + body. Flavor is earthy, fruity, citrus, pine. It’s sufficiently NW to really grab the tongue sides. Finishes earthy and bitter. Just excellent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pine and resin dominate the aroma and flavor. Reminds me of Stone IPA. Body is a little too thin and quite effervescent. Pretty good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours orangey amber with a white head - terrific spoty lacing. Aroma has sweet toffee, pine, resin. Taste is sweet caramel, resin and citrus. Some pine. A bit rough. Becomes more and more bitter throughout the glass. Finishes bitter with hints of sweet. Better than non hoppy brews, but rough.

I really like this beer! Nice head with lots of lacing. Very hoppy nose with grapefruit and pine. Flavor is also loaded with plenty of hops but not much bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable. Very pleased this has been a regular at my neighborhood bar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Orangish in color, a bit hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing. Dank hoppy aroma, and yeah, I mean dank. Somewhat of a soft earthy/soily like hop start, not too bitter, moderate sweetness. Seems oily but without being too biting. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Lingering hops, a bit citrusy at times. Comes across as a solid example and is well made for the style.
