2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber served in a tulip. Dark orange color with a slight haze and a tight two-finger white head that is shortlived and not very sticky. Plenty of malts in this one showing on the nose and palate. Medium body amd soft carbonation. Chocolate and bitterness on the finish. Too malty for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Baileyís Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... orange-amber with no head. Nose... very citrusy hops with a hint of Seville orange marmalade. Palate... very hoppy burst up front, tangy, piney, plenty of grapefruit zest and wedge skin. Nice! And, part of the sales help support a very good cause (see the label on the 22oz. bottles)!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange with a hearty off-white head that shrinks rather quickly. The aroma is impressive - a refreshing gust of pine and citrus hops. Light-bodied and refreshing. Maybe a little too thin, but in the end does a nice job of showcasing the Cascades and Centennials. Hoppy, refreshing, and great for those looking for a tasty IPA that doesnít get weighed down by too much malt.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer - This one had a very nice aroma. It looked like something out of a dream with a nice copper hue and a 1" creamy head to keep all the goodness in. The flavor was a bit disappointing in that it was a bit malty for my taste, but the hops more than made up for it. Nice beer.
