3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear orangey color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and lacing. Aroma of metallic hops with some caramel malt. Taste is a mix between sweet malt with some metallic hops and a bitter finish. Body is about average. Overall, this is an OK IPA but far from being great and lacking balance between malt and hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with a slightly cloudy orange body with almost no head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly sweet, with orange, grapefruit and hops. Flavor is a bit sweet at the outset, followed by a decent hop bite. Finish is rather mild.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent hop aroma with some mild malt coming through. A nice clear copper colored beer with a light tan head. Very good hop flavor with a good biscut light toasted type malt flavor to balance. I like the malt balance as it isn’t so much crystal as it is like toasted malts grains that you would’ve toasted in the oven. A very good take on the IPA and I like the almost normal alcohol content, I can drink a 6 pack and not be too wasted!!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange hue with a nice white head on top. Aroma is hops, pine, citrus with a malt in the background. Flavor is not really there. Not getting much of anything really. For the aroma to be pretty hoppy there isn’t really much hops in the taste. I am not very impressed with this beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A moderate hops aroma and only a slight pine and citrus present. 1/2" frothy head, off-white. Amber color. Nothing spectacular with respect to taste of mouthfeel. Nothing really stood out with beer. A decent IPA that could be a good session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Inbetween IPA and APA. Touch above average. 43 different hops and 65 various malts hodgepodge they claim creates slightly unique, bland, earthy bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Bomber. Slightly hazy amber/orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus and piney hops, some floral as well, with a trace of soapiness. Flavor of caramel malt, grapefruit hops with some woodiness. Hoppy bitter finish, but not overpowering. Medium palate. 12 oz version seems more subdued and streamlined.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect amber in color. Slightly hazy. Filmy white long-lasting head. Mild pine scent. Nice IPA aftertaste - a pleasant hoppiness. Not overly mild or bitter - well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber with an enduring off white head, nice lace, and some floaties. Honey, toffee, and light citrus aromas. Medium body, faintly resinous, light carbonation. Light sweet malty base supports a refreshing piney and bitter orange hop character. Dry, lightly bitter finish of medium duration.
