From a 22oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Glass was kind of warm because it just came out of the dishwasher so I kind of screwed up when I poured the beer. Carbonation was a little high but probably because of the warm glass. The good thing was the aromatics were released immediately! Killer hop aroma along with a nice maltinesss. Flavor is awesome. Rich malts along with a wallup of hoppiness. It coated my mouth real well. The finish was clean and persistent. Well done IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 8-11-11 Amazing Beer. THIS ONE IS FOR HOP LOVERS. High IBU, good construction, aroma and mouthfeel. 7-28-13 poured from bomber; Perhaps kept this one too long. Remember more hops in taste/smell. Aroma was nil. Good light sienna color. 6.2 BD; 6 Joek nice color but expected more; 7.1 Josh

This beer is in "high" demand for a reason! This is a great beer that doesn't blow your mind with the hops or IBU's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure what some tasters were looking for here. Pours reddish amber with a retaining off white head. Drinks well with apricot and sweeter fruit than many west coast IPA’s. Excellent pine resin and hop bitterness on the finish. They don’t all taste like Racer 5 guys...

22 oz bomber from Roth’s Sunnyside store, S.Salem.$3.99 This appears to be the same beer..but it is 7% and a regular IPA. Quite dark amber for the typical IPA, with a gorgeous creme coloured thick frothy head. Hoppy hoppy aromas of course it is 105 IBUs.Spicy,herbal type mostly. Extremelly bitter,piney hop flavour far more than the nose let on.After the first sip though the tongue becomes aclimatized and its a very nice long piney delicious bitterness.Malt is very strong also but no enough to balance the hop. OK mouthfeel..not the greates but far from bad. Overall a very hoppy IPA from 7 Brides. Good stuff if your a hophead.

Bottle... Poured copper/burnt orange with a white head. Aroma had dirty, resinous, spicy hops with a tad bit of soapiness going on. Drier, well carbonated, lots of bitterness and with not much malt to back it. This is a "HOP MONSTER." Piney, citrus, dirt, and a some fruity yeast notes. It’d be interesting if they made a fresh hop version of this same recipe.

Tap at OBF. Pours amber brown with a slight beige head. Aroma is rather floral/citrus. Med body. Flavor is a bit roastier malt than expected, but there’s a lot of citrus and perhaps earthy hop. Hop burn! Finishes almost not dry and quite hoppy/bitter. Good.

Always stoked on some random brewery you’ve never heard of... Cloudy orange. Grapefruity nose. Super resinous palate, quite hoppy. My friend wasn’t so sure what to think about this one until I told him with the 105 IBU’s that was what they were going for. Pretty good.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle:   Cloudy amber, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Very sweet grapefruit nose, slight earth/soil in the background.   Pronounced earthiness right up front, rindish but not biting, a tad sweet to start, with the hops bringing up the rear.   All this time I get a musty basement/wet dirt background.   A little citrusy too.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Mild hop bitterness on the exit, enough sweetness to balance it out.   Could use less of that earthy/soily aspect tho.   Otherwise, pretty tasty.
