Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is almost zesty citrus. Med body. Flavor has a lot of orange followed by somewhat roasted caramel. The nose remains nice. The flavors are nice. It finishes zesty bitter. But not burningly so. Pretty good ale - quite an IPA!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, mild haze, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Citrus aroma, orangish, a touch of tea leaves.   Dull citrus start, a bit of tea leaves too.   Very mild bite to this one, not all that hoppy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes like a Pale Ale, smooth but not all that bitter.   Soft lingering citrus peel and tea leaves.   Smells IPA, tastes Pale Ale.   Hmmm....

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22oz Bomber. The beer pours to a copper color with a slightly off white medium head. The aroma is strong with orange citrus smell to it. The flavor is slightly bitter with a strong hop flavor up from and a smooth finish. A very good IPA.

This is a great example of a single hop beer. It pours a light copper with a thick cap of dense off-white head. Aroma hits you immediately as a straightforward but defined aroma of orange citrus, kinda like a minneola orange. Amarillo hops have a very distinctive aroma that is florally distinguishable as fresh orange yet light in body and density at the same time. Amarillo hops are very similar to Cascades except there is less of a grapefruit note and the bittering is slightly less harsh. There’s also a slight lemony zing that shines through in the finish. I sure would like to try this one on draft somewhere, but for now a bottle will have to do.

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Pours hazy orange-amber with thin, off-white head. Aroma is not powerful, but does have a nice, bright citrus character. Likewise flavor is rather mild, with some cereal and caramel nicely complemented by citrus hops. An unassertive but tasty IPA.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at HUB in Portland, OR on 5 June 2013. Golden, slightly hazy appearance with white head. Orange peel and strong hop aroma. Pleasant hop flavours, not super bitter and a good malt balance. More of session IPA than an all powerful hop-bomb.

pours a clear amber with a small dirty white head, and some lacing. smell is of hops, some citrus, lawn clippings, and malt in the back. taste is thick yet crisp, some citrus, hops before malt, and a little earthy. ends clean and balanced.

Bottle. Clear copper with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, and soap.Flavor is wimpy citrus and pale malts. If youre gonna do a single hop beer you gotta turn it up. Not impressed. I love amarillo hops but this is pretty mundane.
