750ml bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours golden amber with a nice frothy head. Nose is full of hops, very tropical and fruity. Flavour is nice and hoppy, very citrusy and floral with a light malt presence. Long lingering hop flavors, dry and resiny. Very enjoyable.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a foamy off-white head. Strong hoppy aroma - but it’s like crushed cactus or something. Med body. There’s malt, and then there is "complex floral, spicy and citrus hoppiness ". Sort of twists my mouth around. Bomb it is. You could probably use this for industrial cleaner. Wowser!!!

Tap @ Parkway & bomber. Clear amber pour, short white head moderate lace. Pine resin nose, medium-heavy body evenly balanced between bitter, sweet and umami, with a hint of tartness entering in the middle and lasting through the finish. Spicy juniper, some floral hops, meaty, very interesting. All the flavor of an DB but without the lacerations ;-)

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, pine, grass, Simoce, citrus, spruce, light caramel, light biscuit, and light malt. Poured orange/amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, beige head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout on top of the beers as a film, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and heavily bitter. Tastes of caramel, malt, light sugar, hops, Simcoe, pine, light citrus, grass, resin, and biscuit. Medium body. Lightly tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, biscuit, hop, resin, grass, pine, and slight wood finish is medium sweet and heavily bitter. Delicious. 7.3%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

22oz Bomber – Johns Market – Portland, OR
Dark Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of rich malt aroma and hops mixed in. Very floral with the hops. Loved the big sweet spice taste and the hops balanced well. This is a big beer and it will catch up with you. Lots of citrus, and spices in the beer. Watch out he is watching you.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Amber body with decent off-white head. Lovely, piquantly hoppy and cinnamon sugar spicy bouquet. Citrusy and resiny hop flavor with a bitter hop finish. Muted cinnamon, lemon zest, and allspice character.

Bottle:   Heavy amber, reddish, caramel hues, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Organic malt nose, barnish, mild hop aromas.   Mild hop bitterness up front, pale earthy malts, soft sweetness.   This is an American Strong Ale?   Um... not in my book.   Seems like an IPA to me.   Its not even all that bitter.   Seems a little earthy/soily, with a moderate hop aspect that isnt very biting.   Smidgen of citrus like bitterness.   The body, alcohol, and malt base do not measure up to an American Strong Ale.   Seems an okay IPA, but pretty ho-hum if you ask me.   As an American Strong Ale, its missing some complexity, malt base, and sweetness.   Um... yeah...

Bomber served in a tulip. Pours nearly flawless. Dark orange-amber with a medium-short light tan top. Good retention and excellent lace. Aroma is caramely sweet at first then there is pine and grass. Mid-sweet flavor. The hops show quickly but are perfectly balanced by the malts. Then the hops come again. The finish is sweet and bitter in large quantities. Medium body, mild carbonation, resiny-sticky texture. I’ll have another!

Tap @ Full Sail River Front: Pours a copper color with a light head and some lacing. The nose is fresh and caramelly; lots of pine and citrus as well with a balanced aroma and grassy hint. The flavor is clean, full bodied and fresh with a bunch of dry hops and caramel spice. Nice combination, much more hop focused for the holidays than malts, which is the way it should be in my book.
