On tap at TAPS in Petaluma. Pours dark orange with an eggshell head. Aroma is herb bread and unripe orange. Flavor gives off some pale malt, a touch of caramel, and a very bitter helping of piney hops. Somewhat resinous and citric as well.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t agree with the 89 score on here at all. This IPA didn’t have much of a hoppy aroma and the hops came through far too grassy in the flavor. It was okay, but not good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had a bottle together via facebook chat. A third of the pour is golden tinted foam with a hazed, opaque, copper hued beer under it. The nose seems to be classic West coast IPA. It offers citrus hops and caramel. Somehow the aroma does now say it will be bitter and grapefruit. And then the first sip brings bitterness and the after taste is grapefruit. Again, this is classic west coast IPA. Some applesauce is tasted but is never big and later pine is tasted. This was a consistent beer from the first sip. Saying it is a classic west coast IPA is not at all derogatory. That is a fine style and this is a fine beer.

Shared with Srykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured an amber-orange with a big off-white head. Nose is strong grapefruit on a caramel malt base. Medium body and a sticky resin mouthfeel. The flavor is bitter with citrus an pine. Alcohol shows. Long bitter dry finish. Powerful but good drinking. Classic West Coast IPA that flirts with being a DIPA.
