Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
On tap. Off white effervescent head on a transparent gold amber body. Aroma was spruce and orange, slight malt. Flavor was orange citrus, spruce, resin, almost undetectable malt, slightly fruity, and highly bitter which characterized the finish. Not a heavy bodied beer could session with it. I was surprised to see it out here but quite happy.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Pours hazy, bright gold with a thick, one finger white head. Spotty lacing. Musky aroma of pepper, honey, hay, and dough. Not too much citrus, what there is of it is a candy-like orange/pineapple. Tart, bitter taste at first, but becomes sweeter as you drink. More of a Chinook/Noble hop taste; grassy, some pine, with a herbal bitterness. Sweet yeast and malt combo give make it a more gentle IPA. You get the bitterness, but it is surrounded by a bready sweetness. Leans more into the English IPA than the typical West Coast version from Rogue. Solid mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easiyl drinkable.

Pale yellow beer with a medium white head... Floral hop aroma... Dry citrus and pine flavors... usuallly i require a bit more of a malt backing but this was a great beer... medium bodied, tasty

Hazy orange pour with fluffy white head. Fresh hops aroma. Big citrus flavor. I definitely get alot of amarillo flavor on this. What a pleasant surprise. A little expensive, still very solid

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Bomber from Windmill Farms. Hazy dark golden/orange color. Dry skunky pine hop aroma. Somewhat peppery as well. Strong spicy hop flavors seem to dominate. Very hopped and pretty tasty. Very solid IPA.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2009
On tap at Bar Louie in Tampa, FL. Decent and quite hoppy nose with a lot of grapefruit and floral notes, also white grape juice. The beer arrived with a good white cream head, that turned into some nice sticky lacing, but also with a rather uninteresting light golden color. A lighter feeling ipa, crisp yet also a good wet bitter, grapefruit, grapes, berries, and some minor spicy pine, balance seemed slightly off to me. This was a different tasting ipa but not all that interesting.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Hazy yellow pour with an almost non-existent head. Highly citrus aroma with a little bit of pine behind it. Honestly kind of tastes like a lot of Rogue brews but with more of a hoppy bite than is typical to them. Regardless, I enjoyed it well enough.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2009
bottle - Pours lightly hazy, deep yellow with a big foamy head. It smells mainly of citrus accented hops. The flavor is all about the hops. They’re good, crisp hops and that 70 IBU rating is pretty high for a regular IPA. There’s a little caramel malt to support it. It’s medium bodied and the finish is dry and bitter. Solid.

Pours a nice hazy yellow-gold with a huge fluffy white head and spotty but good lacing. Great hop aroma (Amarillo) with some citrus and sweet malts. I really enjoyed the taste; it was hoppy but had a great sweetness to it. I recommend trying this if you can get your hands on it.
