Bottle from hometown mini mart in Cashmere. Sweet fruity nose. Beautiful foamy head. Great crisp hoppy flavor that was not too dry. Closer to IPA than pale ale

For the style, very beguiling, and one of the better ones. Quite complex -- solid malt backbone, but there’s some sort of slight sweetness -- fruity? citrusy? -- mixing in there, too. Hops of course are there, in balance, and ends with a satisfying slight bitterness. Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
Bomber. Gusher, clear light orange copper, big off-white rocky volcano head. Aroma is moderate floral herbal hops and faint malt. Lightly bitter floral citrus hop taste, herbal and grassy, perfectly balanced with light pale malts with very little sweetness. Lively carbonation, light-medium body, moderately hopped. Delicious and extremely sessional. Clean dry finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary) Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Serving: from tap at Zippy’s Giant Burgers.
Aroma: heavy, pine hop.
Appearance: small, creamy, off-white, initial head with good lacing and fully-diminishing longevity. Hazy, medium-amber body.
Taste: lightly bitter and nutty initial flavor and finish with average duration.
Palate: medium body, watery texture, and lively carbonation.
Overall: great aroma, pretty good flavor (not overly bitter). TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bombers from PD (one drunk fresh, one a month later). Clear orange-amber pour with a fair amount of sediment left in the bottle. Head is short, white and leaves heavy lace. Nose is citrus hops and some honey-on-toast malts. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation; more rounded than crisp, especially the later bottle. Citrus, some pine, toast, light honey and grapefruit. Finish is biscuit and citrus zest. Excellent, I hope ABC make this a year-round ale.

Draft at the pine box. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a dense and wooly tan head. Big bright piney nose, lots of intense dimensional presence; bigger than some ipas for sure. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, toast, and lots of bright pine on the mid palate. Long sharp dry finish. manisthebeer (246) - squamish, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is very nice. Nice mix of citrus, pine, and grass hops with a big bready and biscuity malt base. The hops are more subdued in the taste. Nice malty sweetness up front and a light bitterness in the finish. Big biscuity taste throughout with some nice citrus fruit and dry hops. Crisp finish. My kinda pale ale. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super malt and hops balance with a light bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking nice Pacific NW Pale ale. Strykzone (7489) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. We both rolled our bottles to loosen sediment. A lot broke free in mine. The result was a very dingy appearance that was kind of brownish copper. A nice beige head. The aroma is full of citrus fruit and especially grapefruit. The first sip gives the exact same thing. Big bitterness that is grapefruit zest. It is dry and bitter. After that I taste pineapple. By midglass that bitterness had moderated and more fruit took its place. A little malt, too, although this is very much hop forward. Tropical fruit grows toward the finish. And then the last 2 sips bring out some coconut. Where did that come from. I liked this beer. It was totally about the north west hops and they are very good.
