Bottle:   Hazy amber, frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy hop nose.   Smooth yet subtle hoppy start, nice malt backing (more than most Pales).   Finishes quick, not too bright.   Full bodied for sure.   Good mouthfeel, but needs a bit more hop bite, some brightness. &nbps Otherwise a nice chewy Pale Ale.

one of the few local brews from portland that was brought back to me. A bit of a letdown, flat and boring.

22 oz. bottle from John’s in Portland. Transparent copper appearance. Carries a thin and wispy head. Aroma is light notes of citrus, mainly orange, and a touch of malt sweetness. Not very pungent, but it’s good enough. The aroma seems to be getting fruitier as it warms. This has an odd malt flavor that doesn’t seem to go away. A touch of citrus hop hits my taste buds, but honestly, this just doesn’t cut it for me. The texture is nice and light. This is a very easy drinker. The lingering bitterness is quite nice, but still, not really cutting it for me. Very easy to drink, and a fine pale ale, but not enough hops.

Not a bad pale ale. Got a medium hop bite and loads of light malt notes going on here. The aroma leads you to IPA then the flavor backs off. Good Session beer for a Timbers game.

22 oz bottle from the new Freddys in Wilsonville. $3.79 Dep golden/orange ale with a nice thick,bubby off white head. Really nice hoppy aromas from this one smells very fresh citric,spicy and floral. Taste is mildly hoppy and quite sweet.light bitterness bathes the tongue and a fruity finish. Ok on the palate..thin but thats good in a summer beer. Overall a nice simple pale for the summer.

Bomber served in an English pine. Pours hazy amber-orange with a short sparse head. Bottle... The aroma is floral and fruity with grassy hops. A little sweet and bitter as it hits the deck. Cereal malt and grapefruit. Medium body, smooth texture, soft carbonation, and a solid dry, medium bitter finish.

Tap at 16 Tons during their anniversary week. Beer brewed in honor of Oregon’s newest professional sports team, the Portland Timbers! Hazy orange pour with about an inch of bubbly white foam. Aroma mainly floral and citrus hops with a surprisingly grainy smell as well, but not in an unpleasant way. Tastes grainy and biscuit like with citrus and floral hop backings. Always surprising when an Oregon brewery makes a more malt forward Pale Ale, but this one was decent.

Bottle... Poured clear amber/orange with a white head. Floral nose with some pine and wood-like tones with light yeast fruitiness. The taste was very similar to the aroma. Mild carbonation, light fruitiness. Peppery-spice, resinous, citrus and big time malts in the finish for a quenching balance.
