Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, graininess, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit rind. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, light piner and a hint of grapefruit with a smooth dry lingering moderatly bitter earthy finish.

Big thanks to Mike for this one. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thick creamy head that recedes to a soapy cap and leaves sticky lacing along the sides. Aroma is very nice with some pithy grapefruit and hints of sweeter citrus, oranges and pineapples. There is enough sweet malts to keep things in balance a bit. The taste is wonderfully hoppy with lots of grapefruit and pineapple but, more than the aroma, there is a substantial resinous pine flavor coming out. There is a balanced caramel malts and lightly toasty malt backbone underneath. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied for an IPA with good carbonation and just the right amount of sticky hop juice. This is an excellent IPA and I’d really consider it more of an IPA + 1/2. It’s definitely on the hefty side of a normal IPA. No matter the style and comparable beers, this is a wonderful beer

Drank from a 22 oz. bottle. Poured really nice, with a nice head. Had a nice citrusy, hoppy smell. The ale was a a brown, copperish color. Began mild, but after a few drinks the hoppiness came in. A very smooth beer, that I enjoyed.

Bomber.

Dark golden pour with a foamy light-maize head. Quite a straightforward c-hop aroma but a flavor that is all grapefruit juice, strikingly and delightfully so. A slight offnote vegetal aftertaste keeps this one from pulling an 8 on flavor, though, and ultimately this is another good but not off-the-charts PacNW IPA.

pinkzambia (1641) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle: Clear copper color with lots of carbonation and a tan head. Earthy, grassy aroma. Hoppy flavors with a weird metallic finish and kind of that out of balance cardboard hop aftertaste. I expected more from this because of the ratings. Perhaps I got a bad bottle.

Crisp, clean aroma, with a hint of hops. Nice medium-caramel color. Initial flavor is a bit malty for an IPA, but the finish is very hoppy. Overall, a very solid IPA.
