3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Appearance is a cloudy orange and copper color with a generous topping of sea foam head. Aroma has notes of pine, orange rind, caramel and bready malts. The flavor is ruby red grapefruit, tangerine and pine upfront followed by some lemon, toasted malt and spicy hops notes toward the end. The body is mildly creamy with strong carbonation and a clean, bitter finish. Definitely one of the more flavorful and balanced Pacific Northwest style APAs.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a smallish white head. Nose is rather hoppy, with some citrus and floral notes coming off this one. Taste actually isn’t all that bitter, but is fairly refreshing. Not a bad beer...

HQT night: Growler. This beer poured a cloudy amber color. Looked almost like an unfiltered beer. The dry hop aroma was awesome, and the taste and enjoyment of this beer did not disappoint. Maybe a slight mushroom and grass hint. Very good stuff.

Amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of pine with some tropical fruit and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is similar with the tropical fruit sticking out the most. I also get some biscuit notes in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
