Poured from a bomber. Aroma is pine, pepper, and grainy cereal. Flavors are pine, black pepper, slight citrus, caramel and a grainy cereal flavor. Decent fresh hop, actually kind of spicy and bitter. Not overly aggressive or anything just kind of meh.

Aroma is citrus, light fruit/juice and a hint of spices. The flavor is citrus, spices, light grapefruit, fruit and a bitter/dry but relatively smooth (for an IPA) finish.

Hazy yellow pour with thick frothy head. Aroma is dominant with grapefruit, resin, and a subtle pine cone. Flavor is moderate sweet with a crisp bitter finish. Very average but also quite good.

Bottle. Nice seductive pour of bright amber, the headís a little bit relenting, but is sticky as heck. This drinks with a nice viscous palate, the floral and semi-acidic hops are in the forefront, but thereís a nice firm malt backdrop, too. Exceptional west coast IPA. (#5338, 11/21/2013)

Bought at Liquor Shed, best by Feb 23, 2014.
A nice medium gold pour, 2 finger head of foam that leaves some lacing behind.
The smell is pretty hoppy..notes of pine & grapefruit with some grass thrown in for good measure. A light sweetness sits firmly in the background.
First sip in and I get that it isnít quite as hoppy as the smell suggested. I get some citrus mixed with the grass and pine but they seem to bring more bitterness than actual hoppy flavours. The malt is a bit more apparent; notes of biscuit and hints of caramel.
The mouthfeel is good, nice medium body, sort of lightish on the carbonation.
There are no weird ingredients thrown in this brew but it still doesnít hit my palate on all cylinders. Itís not bad though.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bought at Albertsons in Hayden, ID. Best before 2/23/14, so Iím guessing this is pretty fresh. Aroma is doughy, catty, piney, wheat cracker, grapefruit, floral. Pours clear copper-gold with a medium off-white head with great retention and lace. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter; heavy bitterness lingers through the long finish. Crisp and refreshing. Medium body, highly carbonated. Nice fresh hop ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml. Maybe a light haze on the burnt orange-golden body supporting a quarter inch of meringue on top. Olfactory perception is dank ash, lightly scorched grain, peppery resin, green herb and a hint of grapefruit. Flavor is resin, lightly scorched herbs and grain, peppery citrus pith. Light-medium body is way dry, has average but smooth carbonation and a long finish of charred cabbage. Another predictable, but drinkable and well-crafted American IPA using a "new hop strain" to blast your face off.

Bomber. Poured clear lighter golden with a sticky whitish head.. set up nicely in the glass. The aroma picked up fresh lighter fruit and grassy hops over lightly honeyed malts. The flavor found kind of sharp black pepper and floral bitterness over light fruit meat and a kiss of honey.. finished spicy. Medium-bodied and a little too sharp on the palate.. just ok overall.
