Bomber. Light pale golden color. Really nice frothy white head, great retention. Aroma is oranges, bubblegum, banana, cloves - think hefeweissen or wit. Taste is nice and sweet. Hop bitterness is present but quite muted. Quite tasty overall. Not sure I get the "ipa" part of it, but very smooth, drinkable, and pleasant.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a moderately hazy light amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is pretty light for me - I get a slight bit of orange peel, but none of what I would consider a hop character. Taste is a bit bitter, and has an odd gummy flavor I don’t particularly care for. Not a fan.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good to be #10. Bomber from Malt & Vine. (54 IBU) Pours dishwater gold. White head. Strong citrus/yeast aromas. Flavor is very citrus, but coming across as a Belgian wit to an extent. The flavors are very mixed, but discernible. Tangerine, grapefruit, floral. Yet the Belgian part is not in doubt. Quite a distinct sort of flavor from standard NW IPAs. Different is good.

Belgian IPA that would be better but has two downsides. First, very unbalanced -- a lemon note is dominant and crushes everything else going on. Second, I'm getting a bit of soapiness at the back end. C.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight cloudy yellow pour. Aroma of beans, hops, peaches; crazy smells. Tastes of belgian yeast, heavy bretta, pronounced bitterness. Very dry; out of balance. Strong in every way, but still pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Such a pale dirty straw, so thick, its like a Bit-O-Honey milkshake.   Moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   IPA, really?   Faint spicy nose, a bit wheaty, some straw.   Smooth on the tongue,
muted spices, little hop, but moreso nothing really off.   This one is certainly different, not hoped like most other IPAs tho.   Its almost medicinal, but that could be the 7.5% shining through.   This is a weird one, but
not really in a bad way.   I would say more of a Pale Ale than IPA, and a bit more spiced albiet the spices are muted/dull.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong wheat and straw on the finish, a bit thick, with soft
spices.   I can dig this one, certainly different.   I almost think this is more of a Wheat beer with spices and hops than anything else.   Seems very yeasty.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. lots of sheeting ace. Big bubblegum nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread, bubble gum, and watermelon on the mid palate. Kind of all over the place, but weird yeast combinations are definitely the signature of the house.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured hazy, copper orange. Nose had nice wheat and yeast esters. Some notes in this, especially is it warmed up, really came of like a Weizen Bock. With added hoppy bitterness. Quite nice. Lots of banana and other tropical fruits with earthy spice hop characters. Effervescent yeast notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in color, hazy with a thin white head. Lots of aroma with both yeast and malts and light hops. This was a very interesting beer with a interesting Belgian yeast backing. The yeast in my humble opinion covers the hops for a super IPA Belgian flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a bright golden hue and a thick, four centimetre tall white head - nice with zillions of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, a hint of earthier hops and a little bit of curacao and lemons. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and wheat flavour with definite spice notes of coriander seed, a hint of nutmeg and a little clove, some light sweetness, but almost not hops at all. Aftertaste shows mainly wheat and yeast with a bit of spice and a complex clove note. Overall, a good wit, but I’m not seeing anything resembling an IPA or ’White IPA’ at all about this one. Definitely nice to try, but I’ll see what else the brewer offers the next time I’m out West. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 11-January-2013 for US$5.79 sampled at home back east in the Real Washington on 01-February-2013.
