COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who arenít afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5į, 45 IBU

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Faint pine aroma. Darker straw colored with receding white head. Sappy, resinous hops begin and yield to a caramel malt background. Finish is crisp from bitterness. Body is on the lighter side, making this a sessionable beer. Decent hop flavor overcomes lack of aroma. Enjoyable.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Light yellow-orange pour. Nice balance on the nose, slightly hop-forward. Tons of grains in the flavor. Almost too much. Still quite bitter from the hop content.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Slightly hazy pale orange, thick foamy white head fades quickly. Aroma of lemon, grass, floral hops, grain. Taste is also grainy with lots of mild citrusy hops and a light bitter finish. Somthing missing.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 22, 2010
From a 22-oz bottle this poured a hazy orange with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Nose is mild and of citrus and floral hops. Medium body with a lively mouthfeel. Flavor is mildly bitter and this carries over into the finish. Very easy drinking.

Bottle. Generic NW hop aroma, caramel malt flavor with a little hop going on. Finishes clean.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bomber served in a lager glass. Pours golden yellow with a bit of a haze and little head. Aroma and flavors are standard mild pale ale-esque. Light fruit and malt. Decently bitter and crisp finish. Iím getting the last of the bottle here so I think I will need to retaste at some point

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Seemed a lot like their IPA-lite. Dry, bitter, but mellower all around and with a gentler aroma. Piney and citrusy with a touch of caramel but mostly paler malts and some toast. Medium-light bodied and zesty carbonation. Definitely a good option if you are having a couple.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2010
on tap at HUB in Portland. Pretty standard US pale ale without much standout from the malts or hops.
