As the winter sun hangs low in our sky, some 93 million miles away, solar filaments, giant arcs of cool, dense plasma explode from its surface. Filament Winter IPA celebrates this cosmic wonder. Pale, Munich and Caramel malts create a rich malt character with a honey-like flavor. A bounty of Crystal, Chinook and Centennial hops combine to lend spicy, citrus hop notes.

Reid (2450) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2014
22 oz bomber bough from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.99 Pours a clear dark orange with a very large bubbly yet thick and creamy head. Rich and malty noce,bready,honeyish but also hops put in a good appearance citric.slight resin. Flavour is decidely on the malt side and is pretty sweet almost too candy sugar sweet for my liking...Sweet toffee..a little hop in the end..not really my thing. Moutheel is OK..the best thing is the hops show up after the beer goes down the gullet. Not impressed..its not bad but not something i would look out again.

Bomber - it pours a clear golden amber liquid with a thick straw colored head. A malty aroma with a citrus hopped overtone. Decent hop bouquet with notes of citrus and pine. Generous malts (caramel and bready) for an IPA. Long lingering bitterness.

luttonm (5527) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Citizen Six, Seattle. Thick foam, light hazed brown-orange. Big, punchy pine hop and winter spice. Warming, bitter, full hops and a lovely big malt body. Really tasty and well done execution on concept.

ajnepple (5998) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2016
22 oz bottled 4 months ago, purchased at Bullfrog Wine & Spirits. Hazy amber appearance with a fluffy, lingering beige head. Aroma of toasted grain, pine, grass, light caramel/toffee and nutty malts. Pretty similar in flavor, adding a light spicy, moderate bitterness and balanced by a light to mild malt sweetness. Medium bodied and pretty easy to drink with a light dry finish. Not bad, drinking much better than their Orbiter IPA of the same age.

Ernest (7549) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very dull aroma (maybe not fresh?), but a decent flavor balance. Ok but pretty uninteresting.

onceblind (8654) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Clear deep golden hue with a fluffy, foamy, off white head. Big resiny and leafy nose of earthy hops. Crisp and big hoppy flavor with a ton of earthy leafy hops, lots of bitterness, a bit of grapefruit rind, a bit of floral bitterness, and a bit of boozy undertones.

BillKismet (3975) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Amber body with a fluffy, off-white head. Nose of green hop, with a dankness to it. The body too has a greenness, dankness, and something of a vegetal quality to it. Dont get to much of the advertised citrusyness, but its a solid, earthy IPA.

NachlamSie (3397) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bomber from Mile High. This is a really good looking beer, to start things off. The body is a rich amber color and very clear with a persistent white head and thick lacing on the goblet. Lots of hops in the aroma impart an earthy, piney character. The palate is fairly hefty and well carbonated. They certainly were heavy handed with the crystal malt, but were just as generous with the hops for balance. Strong back-end bitterness hits the mouth with a sweet caramel flavor and notes of cedar, pine, and a little citrus. Im glad this one attenuated well, it keeps the caramel malt character in check. This is not a hop-bomb, but rather a big, bold, well-balanced IPA. I like.

Bomber poured a clear tarnished copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, citrus, perfume and light pine. Palate was light to !edium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness, light pine and a hint of perfume with a smooth dry moderately bitter finish.

22 oz bottle shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a lasting fizz head. Sweet caramel like aroma. Flavor is a very nice balance of hops and toasty malts. Ideal winter IPA. Very tasty.
