Pours orange with a massive foamy head that lasts forever, tons of lacing. Nose is fruity and dank. Flavours of grapefruit, lighter citrus, some pine, some light cereal. Taste mer bitter light sweet. Full body, sticky with lively carbonation and a lasting bitterness. Really nice.

I think it would be tough to find a west coast IPA that is better balanced. Great nose and smooth herbal finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all about. The smell started off with a big burst of citrus hops running over light piney notes and then a slight floral setting balances within. The taste copied the smell to have a nice bittersweet burst of hops to malts, nicely balanced. A light piney to citrus aftertaste leads into a refined sweet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right for an AIPA - slightly back to allow the hops to take the lead on the bitterness and harshness on my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

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. Over the course of the bottle, the bitterness becomes a bit much. Very enjoyable, though.

Bomber. Pours a solid orange and gold color with an inch of beige foam. Strong floral citrus and pine resin in the aroma as well as some tropical fruit and orange peel around the edges. The taste leads off with potent resiny hops bitterness, grapefruit and tangerine notes. After that thereís some pine, citrus rind and a faintly sweet malt presence. Mouthfeel is smooth and adequately carbonated with a dry, intensely bitter finish. Pine cone juice at its finest.

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. Itís sufficiently NW to really grab the tongue sides. Finishes earthy and bitter. Just excellent.

Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, lemon zest and lighty grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering lemon zest finish.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale golden/orange with a thick forming white head. This hits the spot as a west coast IPA. Floral, vibrant, pine-like and citrus hops with a clean balance. Lots of hop flavor without being too bitter, and just the right amount of malt without coming off as too bready and grainy. This is worth revisiting for those special IPA craving. Iím hoping for six packs.
