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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Lighter IPA, low on aroma, low on hop bitterness. Not very distictive, but very easy to drink. A decent standby, but underwhelming.

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.

Deep golden to amber with white head. Huge grapefruit aroma with a light sweetness. Taste is some citrus hops and a nice malt balance. But definitely hop forward. Pretty nice beer. Aroma is awesome.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. wax dipped bottle- Pours copper with floaties, especially at the bottom of the bottle, doesn’t have a date on the bottle, but I just realized it says autumn seasonal at the top of the page, and this is late april, that pisses me off a bit, considering we just got this in this area (I emailed the brewer and he says it is no longer a seasonal, its a year round beer now). Aroma is citrus, generic beer, some sort of melon, very little hops in the nose. The flavor is sweet grapefruit, very mellow and sessionable, this is one of the mellowist IPA’s I have ever had. The body is medium, carbonation is fairly low for the style, finish is sticky. Overall, I liked this, if they upped the carbonation, this would be a real tasty beer.
