Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is rye and floral/citrus. Med body or better. Flavor is strongly rye spice with some floral and citrus hop. It tastes good, and it’s finishing nicely bitter. Pretty nice ale.

It’s about as average as beer can get. The Rye flavor is nice. Unfortunately I think it lacks as an IPA.

I am loving the Rye Ales these days. I had Three Creeks other rye brew, Stonefly Rye and I preferred this one since it is more flavourful. The aroma is bread and black pepper with some spruce hops. This clever girl is dark copper orange with a frothy white head. The taste was pretty yummy, like a better than average IPA with the boon of spicy, earthy rye along for the whole length of the ride. One of the better Rye Ales I have tried.

Bomber. Really present rye nose and flavors throughout this fairly dry rye IPA. Nice and bitter in the finish. Tasty, not bold.

22 oz bottle bought from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem.
Pours a hazy burnt orange colour with a nice big thick,creamy off white head.
Floral and resiny hops abound in the aroma with a spicy rye and salt caramel aromas also..very nice.
Good creamy caramel,spicy rye and earthy hops make the taste very good.
Lovely medium and smooth mouthfeel carbonation medium high lends to drinkabilty
Excellent rye accented IPA

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at the brewery
Golden raisin color with brilliant clarity and little indication of carb. Nose is subtle with just a little grain and hints of grapefruit. Flavor is robust with bitterness balanced well with crystal malts and plenty of grapefruit and orange peel in the hop character. There is a touch of spice on the malt as well. Medium on full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. I can dig it.

On tap at Lardo. Colour...hazy golden amber with a moderately thick white head. Nose...lightly spicy and hoppy with floral notes. Palate...a burst of grain up front to go with the foamy froth, then comes the rye spice followed by a wave of citrusy hops that longer nicely on the finish.

Tap at Three Creeks. Pours a low haze golden. Webby lacing. Nose is fresh citrus hops, fresh pale grist. Taste is husky, raw malt, big soap and huge harsh husky grain. Big IBUs don’t have the malt balance to match. Still, probably the best beer on tap :/
