3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
100+ IBU’s. You can definitely taste it. Very very hard hitting, and a heavy alcohol content.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Clear medium red copper, firm lasting off-white foam. Pungent hoppy aroma, orange citrus, spicy/floral/herbal, some pine. Taste has the same plethora of hop flavors, notably tangerine, well balanced with toasted caramel malts, maybe some treacle. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. Finishes more dry piney and bitter. Really tasty. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours sort of peach rose with an off-white head. Aroma is light stone fruit, mild malt, and a chocolate hint? Full bodied. Flavor is like aroma expt some citrus and the chocolate is very light. Amber. Chocolate. Often go together for me. Anyway it’s pretty drinkable stuff, thanks to the high ABV.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Stateside, pours a hazy dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is both malty and hoppy, with perhaps the caramel malt winning out, with subverted resinous hops. Flavour is also on the malty side, with caramel malts and wood upfront, with resinous hops in back. Good construction, but could use more hops as the sweetness becomes a little much after a while despite the 100 IBU. Finished on syrupy notes. Not a beer of elegance or subtlety by any means. Okay.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz from Fred Meyers in S.Salem.
Worthy beers have always been an enigma to me, they are probably not top class or even 2nd class in Oregon but for me they always serve a purpose and for which i like them.
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a really nice looking bubbly creme coloured head.
Big spruce/pine aromas..malts take ma back seat..some resin to..its all about the hops in the nose.
Taste is more balanced with some extremely chewy malts..but the juicy hops win out in the end.
Mouthfeel is fine..but maybe a bit cloying.
Overall a nice beer..but i would be intrigued if they had just went with the 100ibu hops and cut the chewy malt all the way down..i think this would be a smashing Red IIPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Large malty nose, sweet light roast, some dank hopping, citrus, and light fumes. Very pretty, glowing reddish/copper color, little head, no lace. Thick caramel initial flavor, offset by a blend of hops. Considerable alcoholic warmth. Medium heavy, with a bit of hop burn. 100 IBU. A big brew and quite tasty. But for all that, it does seem a bit dim-witted and not so special. Like a toned-down barleywine.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Taphouse Grille, Seattle
Red amber color, clean, with creamy head. Mild, pleasant malt aroma. Decent malt flavor, lean mouthfeel; strong bitterness, with a light animal component, some hop resins.
Good beer, quite clean, but a bit hard, and not bright on the hops.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and nutty, with toast and clove. Taste/Palate: sweet, bitter, and slightly astringent from start to a long aftertaste. Fantastic malt and hop balance. Perfect beer, except for the subtle, yet out-of-place clove note in the aftertaste.
