Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a yellow/golden pour with a white head. The aroma was of mandarin oranges, tropical fruit notes, some artificial candy notes and a bit of hay. The taste was sweet and hoppy with a little bit of yeastiness in the middle and finishes florally hoppy. Very good.

Tastes like "Drifter" with a bit more bite - If I had my eyes closed and someone slid a glass of Silverspot in front of me I would have guessed it was a Widmir Drifter. Caramely - Citrus -Grapefruity - Quite nice!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Bottleworks. Clear, orange-gold pour with a short, persistent white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is quite balanced, with some pine and toasty malt. Medium body with very fine carbonation yielding a creamy mouth feel. Some pine resin and citrus, but mostly biscuit and toast, with some nuts - definitely a British-style malt bill on this one and a British balance, though not as smooth and full-bodied as the best British IPAs. Finish is short and balanced, with some bitterness and more toasty, nutty malt flavors. A very good British-style IPA; unfortunately even the best British IPAs don’t come out on top against the average West Coast IPA in my book. I do love the fact that this is a 6%er!

Bottle from CoOp Bellingham, WA, bottled 101612, 3 months ago
Hazy amber color, bright, with medium sized compact head. Gentle hop and fruit aroma, some zesty lemon.
Good body strength, lean mouthfeel; fresh malt and toffee flavor, with good hopping and bitterness level, also nice fruity character (peachy), and some interesting zesty hop resin in the final.
Luckily not so English as claimed on the label.
Not explosive, just very well balanced and fresh. Excellent.
