Good to be the 10th rater. Bomber from Brewforia. Pours golden amber with 4 finger white head. Aroma seems very evergreen. Med body.Flavor is very piney over a decent caramel backbone. In one way it’s "just another", but in another way it’s "out in front". So I vote for out in front.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. A big zesty and fruity nose. The flavor is quite bitter, oranges and marmalade, orange peel, zesty, pine, a bit of resin, certainly a hop forward beer, little malt balance, some biscuit. Quite good.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Mazama Brewery, Draft: This was my favorite beer of the night...being a hop head, that would make sense. This brewery is focusing on Belgian syle beers, and they do good job, but I still will take a good NW IPA when I can find one. Good job guys. Good beer...good slate to choose from.
* update...I tried the new batch #4, side by side with batch #3. Significantly better. Crisper, cleaner, better aroma. Kudos to the brewer for making some adjustments. Adjusted my score to compensate.

Pours a brownish orange, little head. Aroma slightly resinous, toffee and caramel notes as well. Body medium lively, finish is intense, sweetness, almost a doughy quality, lingering finish. Not my favorite IPA, but there is a lot going on here, and I see potential.
