Bottle: Golden orange pour with two finger of fluffy sand colored head. Big aroma of hops; mostly grapefruit and citrus. Some florals. Taste is more hoppy, but more bitter than flavorful. Lots of bitters, in fact. I like it, but it needs a little more r&d.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. 6.2% ABV. Pours a hazy orange with a smallish light-beige lacy head that collapses after a minute or two, leaving a ring. Aroma is nice and IPAish, with pine and catbox prominent. Taste starts out sweet for a half a second before the bitterness kicks it to the side and lingers on the tongue. Tastes of DME. I know a lot of people don’t like that flavor in a finished beer, but it doesn’t bother me. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium-full; sticky texture. A good IPA that comes pretty close to being great.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a sizeable head - several fingers. Aroma is spicy, peppery & floral hops. Modest pilsen malt taste ends in an appropriately spicy finish - slightly spicier than average; nice! Crisp body, good carb, spicy and bold.

Very solid West Coast IPA coming from an up and coming brewery in Seattle. Nice aroma with grapefruit hints. Great hazy orange appearance. Wonderful taste with a smooth finish. Definitely recommend. Give it a try when you see it, you won’t be disappointed.

Dark auburn with a nice off white head. Some lacing in the glass. Great aromatics showing off some pine and some citrus peel. Full bodied with pleasant citrus notes and plenty of hops to spare. Seemed quite tame compared to the extremely hoppy beer I had right ahead of it.

Hazy amber orange, frothy beige head. Aroma of pine, herb, tropical fruit. Taste is nice, good malt balance with bitter resin. A nice surprise beer.

Courtesy of riversideAK. Bomber pours clear deep copper with off white head. The aroma is full with yummy citrus hops and some tropical fruit notes as well as flowery floral sweet cotton candy and spicy hops. The floral note seems a bit out of place but the other yummy notes sure make up for it. The taste is the same with an initial pulse of citrus hops, tropical fruitiness, spicy hops and some floral hop notes all running amuck across my palate. It seems to move from bitter hops and to flavor hops and then back to bitterness and then hop resin into the finish. Nice and hoppy where the floral seems a bit out of place much like in the nose. Good stuff.

Nice IPA! Very hoppy, but in a complex, really pleasing way rather than just a lot of bitterness. Tastes more like a double IPA in terms to full body, great mouth feel, and just pure satisfaction. This beer is a winner.

Lots of sweet grapefruit flavors. Mild aroma with not a lot of hoppiness. Thin layer of foam.

Bomber from Chuck’s. Smells uniquely like cereal grains. Beautiful malt backbone tempers the rather mellow hop profile. I will drink more of these and it will be delicious.
