4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from 22 oz bomber. Delicious, excellent example of NW IPA. Light orange, transparent color. GREAT off white sticky thick creamy head. Nice dull citrusy smell. The flavor is a potent sweet orange with pine hops flavor. 9.61 BD; 7 JD- explosion of flavor when first tasting, too much bitter at end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem OR
Cloudy burnt orange coloured body with a large rocky cream coloured head.
Mostly honeyish malt aromas, a bit of resiny hops.
Very balanced for a IPA..malts are strong caramel and semi sweet hops light resin.
Nice mouth feel..creamy smooth OK.
An OK beer but too balanced..i feel this might be old.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...hazy, golden-orange with a thick white head. Nose...moderately hoppy with notes of pekoe tea and Seville orange marmalade. Palate...a generous bite of invigorating hops, gets things started, then a burst of dry pine and tropical fruit comes into play. Mid palate is fresh, lively and bursting with citrus zest. The finish is long and bitter/sweet.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Metallic bitterness,maybe not the worst Iíve had, not oily/clingy, some lemon, sugar and egg yolk, thin and not so oily. I get a gasoline smell, or maybe moldy sawdust which makes it hard to pick out some caramel or grapefruit notes. Hazy bright yellow with perky white head on top. Dry alcohol finish. You make a blind stab at the market and sometimes its unfortunate. Pretty label.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 itís "just another", but in another way itís "out in front". So I vote for out in front.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
