Pours out a dark amber/light copper with a medium sized white head. Aroma is of floral hops and some pine. Taste is well balanced, some citrus/floral hops blend with a few sweet malty notes, maybe slight fruit, bitter hoppy finish. Solid IPA

DialSquare (4800) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2008
need to preface this one by saying I tried it after a pliney the elder... so it’s a little unfair. bomber. amber gold color with creamy bright white head. aroma of light citrus hops and a little funk. taste is a good mix of sweet biscuity caramel malts and citrus hops. light bitter finish. drinkable brew. aroma just seemed a little odd fit. K-7

Pretty run of the mill IPA. Piny, citric, a bit watery, but fairly well balanced. Nothing bad, just very basic.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Pours a light copper with a strong pillowy head that keeps its form to the last drop. Wonderful aroma is of cherries, plums butter, citrus, and a bit of dust. Taste is fruity, dry, and simple, with a pronounced lingering bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Not bad. It fits the standard style guidelines. It just needs a slight bit more maltiness, and an additional dry hop to become a truly great IPA in my book.

Nik925 (791) - USA - SEP 2, 2008
An over-bitter simple IPA. Has a great malt with interesting hop flavor. A little thin, and not enough hop flavor for the bitterness. New and improved label since the picture was taken.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Pours amber with a decent cream colored head and good lacings. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and a good amount of roasted malts. Pretty well balanced for an IPA. Bitter grapefruit finish.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On draught at the Elysian brewery in Seattle, Washington. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin off-white ring and film top. Aroma of sweet grapefruit zest, some biscuit malt, and a touch of apricots and herbs. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of multi-grain and biscuit malt, extra grapefruit zest and citrus hops, and a hint of toffee. Finish has a sharp bitter finish that slowly disappears in the aftertaste. Average IPA overall but qite good.

Bomber poured a clear copper weith a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, pine, orange and light tropical fruit. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a slightly dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, light pine and light orange with a smooth lingering moderatly bitter finish.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Bottle. Clear deep golden. Aroma of mango and grapefruit. Dry with clean but bold mouthfeel. There are juicy hops, but it ends with ashy bitterness. A good, solid beer, but nothing that stands out amongst the IPAs in the PNW.
