Portland, Or. - John’s Market Place - 22 oz bomber. Dark gold pour, soft white head, nice lacing. Floral aroma, with hint of dandelions. Nice subtle
bitterness, some grains of paradise-like spiciness. very subdued for an IPA. Thick enough mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light amber with a finger of white, bubbly head. Aroma is whack. It smells minty with some grass and lemon. Medium bodied. There’s that mint again. Something seems kind of off. A bit of malt backing to balance the grass and lemon flavours of the hops. Very strong tasting. Bitter after taste with some metallic notes.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt, as well as some grass and a light bit of citrus from the hops. The flavor is also fairly heavy on the biscuit malt and grass, with a hint of lemon and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours golden amber with a creamy near-white head. Aroma seems resin and floral. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor is bitter over mild roast caramel. However, it has a certain harshness, and seems to be fairly hoppy. Citrus? Resin? Floral? All of the foregoing? There is a very faint buttery character - it doesn’t seem to be diacetyl though. Good solid beer, but it lacks flavor extremes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Buffalo Wild Wings PDX: This was a pretty basic IPA. I expected with such a dynamic name, the beer would have matched it. But alas, it did not. Hops were present, but nothing distinctly NW IPA about it. Classic example of trying to be really well balanced to make it drinkable by virtually anyone.

Bomber. I have tried this beer twice, two months apart and from different locations. Both times the beer has tasted like it had gone bad. I have freinds that say it is a decent IPA but my experience is of a very metalic smell and taste. I will not try this beer again.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium yellow with fine soapy white bubbles. Nose of grape, citrus, funky, and candi sugar. Taste of lactose, cream, medium bitterness, pine and citrus oils. Dry finish with a medium bitter linger. Some earthiness to the palate finish as well.

22oz bottle - poured a clear light honey color with a smallish head. Aroma similar to GD Titan and somewhat earthy flavored and almost sweet. Nice bottle art!
