j12601 (12673) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed orange with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus on the nose, a bit of malt, pine and sticky resinous hops. Medium bodied, malt and toast, a nice amount of earthy malt. Sweetness on the back end gives way to aggressive bitterness, toast, long quinine and grapefruit.
Classic old school west coast. Nice.

Notes: on tap at he brewery, Portland visit May 17 commonmac (1264) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2017
22oz bottle shared by blonderedhead. Purchase made in Portland. Really good taproom if you ever visit the beautiful city of roses. Attractive IPA of a golden and orange coloring. Full finger of white head. Nose is citrusy and kind of soapy. Some pine notes too. Taste has traditional elements of an IPA with pine resin qualities and a healthy dose of grapefruit like characteristics. Nice malty backbone staying out of the way of the starring hops. Really straightforward and quality effort. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Bomber pours a slightly hazy orange with a two finger eggshell head and great lacing. Aroma is a tangy tropical fruit, tree fruit, and lemon. Watery mouth feel. Flavor is OK, slightly sweet, slightly tropical, slightly lemon, nothing really stands out about it. Aftertaste is a bit tangy, bitterness is a mild to medium and lingers. Overall fine, just not very memorable.

Bottle. Orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of potent dry cypress, Fruit Loops breakfast cereal, and hay. Flavors are of perfume-like florals, heavy pale malt, caramel, pine sap, and a touch of plastic. Fairly heavy on the palate with only moderate bitterness.

Hazy tan-amber body topped by a luxurious off-white head. Enjoyable prickly piny and grapefruit aroma. The body follows through with piquant pine and some grapefruit notes. Lovely profusion of C-hops. An old school PNW-style IPA. ricke49 (51) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2017
Really ’manages’ its IBU’s well, in that you experience a genuine hop rush, but with a nice malt balance. Appearance is off the charts with a rich orange-gold color and a luscious head. A nice IPA for sipping on a cool spring / fall day, rather than slaking your thirst on a hot summer day. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Pours copper, mostly translucent, foamy off white head that leaves a trail. Solid bitterness, mostly citrus and zest. Light to medium body. Finish lingers with slight drying. Fatehunter (2568) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
