3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber from Canal’s Fire Road EHT. Poured far darker than most IPAs. Clear yet slightly watery rusty amber body with a foam bubble white head. Aroma is earthy, dirty hops, older citrus fruits and a touch of chocolate. Thinner body with average carbonation and chalky finish, light carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, rotting oranges, earthy. Not bad nut the more I sip it the less I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark, brownish amber, almost mahogany, with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is not particularly strong but has hoppy and fruity components. Decidedly hoppy flavor is mainly woody with a subtle citrus and apple undertone. Texture, though fizzy, lacks firmness. If not a great IPA, certainly worth a fair shake.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a nice dry-hopped aroma of citrusy cascade hops atop a fluffy head atop a hazy golden amber. green and piney, with a bit of malt and no discernible alcohol heat. medium bodied and milder in the flavor than aroma, at least hops-wise and it finishes a relatively dry and clean grapefruit. very nice, and definitely lighter fare than some of the other IPAs around. I’d like to see this in a six-pack rather than bomber bottles...

Bomber. Ugly looking amber with lots of stuff. Hop and pine aroma. Spicy hop taste. Not really my thing.

Decent aroma and active amber pour with a simple but smooth taste and small aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In a tulip out of the bottle. One of many MI beers I'm trying after a trip. A classic cascade hop IPA. Tasty but not amazing.

Bomber. Amber with lots of particulate. Spicy hops. Hoppy at the end. Not my favorite of the series.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

draft poured a copperish dark orange color with white head leaving lacing all the way down the glass. nice hop aroma consisting of citrus mostly. the flavor was nice and not over powering. solid citrus flavor backed by malt, medium bodied. pretty good ipa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Blue Dog Lansdale. Pours turbid deep coppery orangy with frothy 1-finger off-white head. Nose is bready caramel malt, oramge marmaladey fruit, piney hops. Tastes piney, resiny, very bitter and IBU-heavy in the alpha acid department, with finishing heavy bitterness, but mayhaps a bit unbalanced, but still delicious.
