4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is citrus with pine notes. Smells nice. Taste is similar with a nice bitterness from the cascade hops. Minimal malt shines through the nice hop bitterness. Enjoying this one.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Single bottle purchased from Willow Park Wine & Spirits on 10/18/2012 in Calgary, AB. Colour: Medium brown and slightly cloudy. Long lasting greyish-white medium creamy head. Nose: metallic, citrus, curious notes of sap, mom’s shortbread. Taste: light sweet, medium-high bitter, medium-light sour. As stated, extremely dry - and this leads to a very herbal and vegetative palate, with notes of parsley, hibiscus, grapefruit peel. A dry and puckering finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy golden amber with a slight, transient white head. Aromas of spice and floral with a touch of citrus. And caramel. And light pitted fruit. Med + body. It’s floral, and fairly earthy, with a slight touch of grapefruit rind. Not harshly bitter, but bitter fer sure. Excellent.

Looks good. Smells good. Tastes good. 4/5. Very hazy orange amber with good froth. Nose is relatively quiet but delicious straight forward juicy orange and grapefruit. Can hardly wait for cans.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber orange pour with white head. Aroma is really weedy with hints of citrus and sweet notes. Medium bodied, oily mouth feel. Flavour is grass, grapefruit and other fruits. Quite bitter, but nicely balanced with oily hops and a long bitter finish. Interesting to taste the cascade hop isolated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yay! Hops! Poured out a hazy light gold brew with a small yet right off white cap that leaves a real mess. Lemon and light caramel - a 50/50 mix of malts vs hops. Weak Rrgf, leafy and dusty, smells refreshing. Tasty goodness - quite ascertive. Bitter, stiff citrus strength and aftertaste. Unsweetened grapefruit and lemon, light on the caramel - the malts are somewhere giving support - much like a girdle for fat pigs - they hold things together but can’t hide the obvious. Pretty yummy and a total non thinking beer. I have to pee.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber listed at 6%ABV pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is loaded with citrus and mild caramel with some earthy notes. Taste is a bold grapefruit and earthy bitterness with a light caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. One of the better IPA’s that I have sampled and recommended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice Cascade single hop brew with a beautiful amber orange body and a thick fluffy off white head. The nose is sweet, piney, mildly citrus with a big astringent hop. Pungent hops, biscuity malts, light spiced notes and cereal malts. Well balanced with a big pungent hop, well balanced and just a great single hop IPA!

650ml brown bottle. 6% abv on the bottle. Dark yellow in colour with a fine haze. Large white head with fine bubbles and very clingy lacing. Nose has sweet orangey hops. Pretty clean malt up front, mild caramel note, mid way some orangey hops. Grapefruity finish that lingers. Mild bitterness. Medium bodied, nice fine carbonation. Pretty nice IPA.
