3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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 I’ve 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.

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.
