3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazed orange/amber, beige head. Aroma of bready malts, some toasted, malt forward for an IPA, but still some nice citrus. Taste is the same, toasty malt, orange peel, dry finish. Great stuff, but definitely more toasty than most PNW IPA’s

22oz Bottle pours a reddish amber with a dense creamy light tan head. Nice aroma of piney hops and caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and woody. Papery and woody with pine trees again. Feel is heavy and smooth and softly carbonated. Just OK

This is a very smooth, easily drinkable Pacific North West India Pale Ale. Worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel and earthiness with a crisp dry lightly bitter lingering earthy finish. A BIG disappointment coming from the PNW!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour. Nice caramelly IPA in almost a SN celebration vein. Not a hop blast, but rather well balanced. I really enjoyed this one. Great value.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
OK IPA, but it lacked vigor. Texture was somewhat tenuous. Malt flavors were pleasant, with some cocoa and caramel, but you have to look for them. And hop flavors/aromas (light grass, faint flowers and a hint of pine) and a moderate bitterness left me yearning for more.
