Pretty big pine resin and citrus aroma and flavor. Fairly bitter too. Didnít seem terribly fresh but still liked it - maybe get it from the source one day soon :)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, hints of pine, grapefruit, hints of orange and lemon notes, slight grass and pine. Taste is a nice mix of grapefruit, orange and citrus notes, touch of biscuit and caramel, hints of slight grass and floral notes. Nicely done, drinkable but very tasty.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber from Binnyís in Schaumburg, IL. This must be well aged or badly mishandled, because no way this bottle would be a 90+ rated beer. Clear yellow-orange pour with a small soapy white head. Cardboard, stale hops, a bit of herbal - I canít get much of the good stuff others found in this. Damn shame.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, from day 9 of the Beer Advent Calendar 2013. Bright orange amber with a thick pillowy light golden head. Terrific bouquet of Pacific Northwest hoppy goodness, very vibrant. Juicy citrus hop flavours open the palate, some perfumey pine, but mostly tangerine and grapefruit. The malts are equally lovely, a little doughy, a little toasty. It all finishes with a lengthy bitterness. What a terrific surprise!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. BBE 30.09.2014.
Pours clear dark golden-copper color with a large white head. Very resinous and piney aroma, some sweet tropical fruits lots of oily hops. Sweet orange and resinous hops on the flavor, mild caramel, sweetish pale malts and some mild gooseberry notes as well. Smooth oily palate with a bitter malty finish. A very nice and balanced IPA leaning towards the malty side, feels very fresh even though itís very close to BBE date, but I bet Itíd be even better fresh. Good.
