Not your typical hop-head bomb. Delicate, with a fantastically citrusy nose. Along with Inversion, this is one of my North American favorites.

This is the sort of IPA I like. Not crazy bitter, but with plenty of sweet malts and honey. Aroma of grapefruit.

Light brown colour with orange hues and a healthy head. Nose: Luscious and bountiful hops, more hop, and then some hop. A one-man-band but a bloody good band at that! Taste: Freshest of fresh hop blast moving to redwood shaded pine. A tangy-tart gesture works its way in. Clamato juice imitation also comes forward. Touch of soap. Some old aged oak shows late and a light maple-like finish rides off. The freshness of this one is outstanding. Fabulous stuff! Brilliant!

bomber from the LCBO. clear deep ornage with a lasting off white head. that laces, perfect looking IPA. deep resinous hop aroma, supporting malt body. clean flavour with excellent progression, a slight bit too watery late. the finish is balanced. really good IPA, very under rated.

Fantastic, if a bit expensive.
Nice hop blast with a touch of citrus on the nose. The taste is rich and bitter, but the hops are under control. A beautiful tang on the tongue and even in the 650ml bottle, this one disappears quite quickly and smoothly.

Bomber bottle. Pours a slightly hazxy reddish amber with a thin but lasting white head. Floral aroma. Tastes of hops - some citrus, spruce, with a warming malt sweet undertone. Finishes with a citrus/grass bitter hop taste. Very very good...

Poured a body of clear amber capped by a finger’s worth of offwhite rockey head. Aroma was less than expected, but the nice, bitter taste and solid mouthfeel atoned for that. Finished well. Always glad to see a new IPA hit the market, especially a good one, from a local micro.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottle.
Pours an amber ale with a puffy cap. Aroma is all PacNW- citrus, floral fruity big caramel malting. Rich mouth feel. Big crystal malting meets big Yakama hopping in good balance..some fruits, citrus, earthyness....bittering increases to the clean bitter finish that ends with a tangerine bite.
One of Canada’s best MIcro IPAs....a superior Anchor Liberty clone.
