This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5°, 45 IBU

Draft @ HUB, Portland.OR. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma with some weak hints of citrus. Sweetish malty hoppy caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Draft at BikeBar. Aroma of grass, taste is similar. Decent body. Nice eample of a proper pale ale.

bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Pours orange gold with a frothy off-white head. Floral/citrus aromas. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Pretty fair amount of hop bitter, with some backing caramel. Quite pleasant. Floral notes stick into the finish. A good bitter beer. Not harsh, but not wimpy.

marcus (10670) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear yellow with a modest white head and a citrus aroma. The flavor is initially sweet caramel malt, but quickly becomes bitter with a very dry finish.

DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy on his birthday! Pours a slightly hazy honey golden with an average foamy white head. Very hoppy aroma: lots of pine and grapefruit. Light biscuity malts are eclipsed by a hugely hoppy palate, lots of grapefruit rind and pine, some pepper in the finish. Very bitter-- I’d have guessed more than 45 IBUs for sure. Loved it!

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2010
22. Pours a nice cloudy bright medium orangey amber. Loose scattering of white head and sedimentary, stringy lace. Dark, earthy hop nose, a little bit of peaty sting, almost smells like rye. Bit of butter there too, more’s the pity. Creamy medium body, lively carb. Earthy, biscuity, husky mid-palate with a hot pine flash at the end. Lingering resiny finish. This might grow on me but it’s a bit imbalanced to the dry bitter side with not much holding it up.
