COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big NW IPA might just put a spell on you! With a burnt, golden-orange color, 6 malts and 4 hops varieties, this beer is enchanting. The up-front hammering of NW hops swirls around with the sweet malt body of one mouthful at a time, producing a light and crisp finish with just a hint of dryness that leaves you wanting more.

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours clear dark copper with a 3 finger frothy beige head. Firm aroma of pine. Med body. Very hoppy. Lots of pine with a little citrus and arguably floral. Even a bit earthy. There’s a pretty strong roast malt backbone, but the hops rule. This is really bitter and flavorful. Highly recommended.

ACHops (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2015
22 oz bomber from Three Creeks, served in a pint glass. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange with medium thick off-white head. Aroma is big roasty caramel malt and light floral and vegetal hops. Taste is similar - lots of rich toasted caramel malt, decent bitterness in the back from the hops, sappy pine notes stand out most. Lingers bitter on the finish. Plenty tasty but quite malt driven for an Oregon IPA.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Canned from Roth’s. Hazy amber/brown in color. Lightly sweet citric hop nose. Full bodied and bitter with a really nice malt balance. Plenty of hop flavor, but also malty and fairly rich. Reminds of a hoppy amber/IPA crossover.

Salmoniform (1227) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Reddish copper hue with creamy off white head that settled. Aroma is resin, pine, straw. Mouthfeel is ok with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a strong hop bitterness. Overall this beer is a bit one dimensional.

Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Moderate citrus with good sweet malt backing it. Deep copper/orange color. Mix of citrusy hops / somewhat harsh resinous notes in mid / nice balancing act in finish. Medium-heavy body. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2985) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in Sisters. Deep medium-dark red-amber with a fairly durable head and a ample streaks of sticky lacing. Aroma: Herbal and floral hops. Soe citrus too. Flavor: Medium strong herbal hop punch with building bitterness partially reduced by the malts. Feel: Medium body with appropriate crisp carbonation. O: recommended as a subtlely spicy IPA.

stevoj (2866) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Beautifully crafted IPA, orange/amber in color with very small, but creamy head.. Combination of malt and hops blend well for an overall smooth experience, nice mild bitterness on the finish. Very easy to drink ale.

On tap at the brewery. Nice amber pour with a white head. Citrus and grapefruit hop aromas. The taste follows suit with pleasant honey and caramel malt backbeats. Good body and mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

Bottle. Pours a clear darker amber color with a very thick pillowy light tan head on it. Nose is grassy, and seems to have a bit of spice to it, actually. Taste is slightly bitter, and seems to have just a bit of toast to it underneath. OK, but nothing remarkable.
