Pours hazy orange with a bit of white head and decent lacing. Citrusy aroma with tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit. Medium / full bodied with a great, creamy mouth feel. Flavor is lots of grapefruit rind. Lots of bitterness, but not over powering. Very well done IPA.

Bomber from Letspour. Yellow-brownish pour with a thin off-white. Aroma is pine, citrus, floral, caramel. Tastes are floral, amarillo hops, sweet grains, citrus resin, bread. Nice medium to thin palate. Leaves a metallic aftertaste. Ok. Got an ipa through the mail - so grain of salt here. Maybe a fresh one is much better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2012 Poured a slight haze orange mild head.
Aroma is light sweet semi-ripe fruit,a nice toasted carmel malt with toast buiscuit breadiness,some grassy floral. Mellow hoppy fresh but not intense or strong.
Taste is juicy but with toast or buiscuit light to medium light bodied with a good balance of hops and toasty malts,slight carmel /butter.Slight yeast. Smooth with a mild rhind grassy some grapefruit bitter that tapers smoothly. Havent had many commercial organic ipaís(if any) but this is the best one ive had so far.Oh wait..no. Sierra Nevada is one of my all time favorite beers,the Estate Ale which is organic.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Love organic beer in bottles, keep it coming.
It pours a medium amberish gold. It is clear with some nice carbonation bubbles and a foamy white head.
The smell isnít what I would expect form a brewery called "Hopworks" Comon, I wanna be facefucked by hops. It has some hops in the smell in with light herbal citrus but it is mostly bready almost toasty malts and sugar.
The flavor is nice but again Iím not getting totally mouthfucked by hops but this is a nice upgrade from the aroma. It has a medium bitterness. Nice grassy almost spicy notes, some pine, grapefruit rind, lemon.
It is a good NW style IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great, slightly hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and a bit small of a off-white head, standing in at around a centimetre. Aroma of amazing citrus, grapefruit, pine and floral hop notes, all with a little bit of sugar, some alcohol and a good amount of malt. Medium-bodied; Slightly chewy flavour at first with a metallic twang starting off the bitterness, followed with the grapefruit and citrus hoppiness ending with a good malt backbone and some floral notes. Aftertaste is a bit light, not much alcohol, less malt than I expected and a fading flavour of hops noticeable - a bit underwhelming. Overall, still a good Pacific Northwest IPA, but not to the level of some of the other competitors - that said, itís still well worth trying for folks not from the area, including myself. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 28-February-2012 for US$4.98 sampled at home in Washington on 17-May-2012.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Letís Pour. Pours a hazy orange, with decent white layer of head that stays throughout. Lacing is moderate. Not a lot in the nose...some grapefruit/citrus. Less hoppy than I was expecting. Grapefruit and some pine in the taste. Good malt presence for a nice balance. Overall pretty good, but less than I was expecting.
