Bomber. Mild citrusy nose. Typical orange/amber color, creamy off-white head. Tangy hop sawdust / rich caramel comes out in mid / finish is creamy and fairly balanced. Medium body. Pleasant, and fairly generic NW stuff. Doesnt go too far. A sweetish IPA.

March 2012. 22 oz. bottle. An OK IPA on the softer side with more caramel and malt aromas than most. Its balanced and drinkable, but if you like hops, there are better choices.

Cyclops is a "decent" IPA. It pours a golden honey color with almost no head. Aroma is grainy. The flavor is very malty but yet refreshing? Interesting. I would definitely have it again but it could easily be passed by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge, Bend, 23/05/13. Clear dark amber with a thin off white head that clears to a film. Nose is hops, orange pith, caramel malt, light pine. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, orange pith, hops, touch of pine, grassy notes. Medium bodied with a little balls, fone carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Decent enough IPA.

Bottle:   Heavily hazed orangish amber, sediment abounds, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet citrusy hop nose.   Straight forward, but not grainy or pithy.   Nice smooth bitterness, not too big but enough to get a good citrusy flavor, clean backside, with a nice malt base.   This is really surprising.   Very smooth and tasty.   This one isnt a bruiser, but instead its very well balanced.   Does somewhat come across as a really malty Pale Ale, but has enough IPA flavor to hold out.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, juicy, and hoppy without being overly bitter.   I had mixed expectations on this one, but wow was it good.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. It poured a cloudy gold with a beige head and lots of lacing rings. Nose of hops - floral, pine, and some light citrus. Medium in body with a clean mouthfeel. Flavor of fruit lots of the hops mostly pine and flowers. Well balance and with a light bitter and flavorful finish Quite good.

A very strong, robust American Pale Ale (APA, or is it AIPA?). Worth a try, but not too many.

Honey amber hue. Rocky head with excellent lacing. Herbal aroma. Silky texture and a very complex flavor profile. Very well balanced. ~m --RaucusBacchus

Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. It poured hazed honey gold with a soapy beige head that leaves sticky lacing. An aroma of pine and floral hops. That along with caramel were major themes. Complex fruit, too. The fruit kind of baffled me. It was not really passion fruit and not citrus at all. Caramel matched the hops note for note and might have come out ahead. This was not a typical west coast IPA in that it had so little citrus.
