Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Very good aroma and flavor to match. Interesting and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy dark copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of fruit and melon. Med body. Flavor of mild, slightly roasted caramel, and hop that seems apricot/melon. It’s bitter, but balanced, not harsh. Finishes just a bit more malty than I might like it. A drink that’s laid back.

It pours a dark red with a 1 finger head of foam, and leaves some light lacing behind.
It smells of citrus hops, some pine, and a bit of a malty note here and there.
It’s kind of bitter; I get some grapefruit, a little bit of pine, but there’s a solid malt backbone in this red IPA. Just enough sweetness to balance things out. A good brew for folks who like balance. Not so much for real hop heads.
Medium body, same for the carbo. Good mouthfeel that has some bitterness in the finish.
A good brew.

bottle from Pelican. pours a very clear red with a large off white head that lingers and laces to no end. aroma is rather malty with some light toast and caramel. taste is initially sweet with some moderate hop flavor coming through mid palate. ends rather dry due to hop bitterness. overall, a decent IPA, but I like mine a little more hop forward and less malty. a very clean and well made beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Musty citrus peel and pith, not too bitter, a little subdued actually.   Looks good, good body, but not a bright IPA.   A little caramel or toffee, some bready notes, with a background of that musty and almost candied pith and peel.   Not as sweet as I am making it sound tho.   Interesting, like many IPAs before it, but the bitterness that I expect to be there, is really not there.   A little baffled... Not bad, but could stand to have some more IPA like characteristics.

Pours one finger of head on a hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is dank grapefruit with a touch of bright lemon.
The taste is rich malt, caramel and some moderate lemon bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops and malt balance. Loved the hops and the dark malts flavor. This is a super beer.
