3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Met in New West. Quite dark for an IPA. An off-white head. Well hopped, but not over the top, with substantial malts in the background. I quite like it.

Poured from the tap. Hoppy aroma and taste, but lacks the hit and finish of an excellent hoppy beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma is a bit metallic, with copper, stale malts and little if any hop character. Flavour is very metallic, in the sense of the cask seeming off. Definitely something wrong with this. I’ll revisit this if I get ten opportunity but this is pretty poor.

Bomber. The name of the brewery kind of says it all. Lazy. Lacks any sort of hoppy aroma. Smells like a lager. Nice color. Little to no hop presence. No thanks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An attractive appearance, but the flavor seemed to sit with leaden deadweight. One of the team felt it was almost sour without the crisp hoppiness that you should expect. An overall quality, but average, beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Standard India Pale Ale. Bitterness throughout with pine, citrus and caramel flavors. A bit thin on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head which leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malt with some earthy and citrus hops. Taste is bitter earthy hops with a bit of citrus and a caramel malty sweet backbone to balance things out. Medium body and light carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber body, off white head. Loads of dark hops, but not bad ones. Caramel malt, some citrus. Flavour has woody notes, very bitter. Really resiny hop flavour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Coppery amber colored in appearance with a half-inch of foamy white head. Lots of sweet and citrusy caramel malt and herbal hops notes in the aroma that slightly resemble a Barleywine. The taste follows the same formula as the aroma with the addition of some grapefruit and earthy hops bitterness. The body is adequately carbonated with a clean, bitter finish. Nice interplay between the caramel malt and aggressive hops characteristics. Definitely holds its own against other quality Pacific Northwest style IPAs.
