I missed the boat on the point. A wonderful concept on growing local, but a generally unimpressive hop profile. nuplastikk (6312) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2008
22oz bomber split with Ann. Murky, thick orange-brown color with a nice foamy head. Fresh, hoppy aroma. Big, chewy WIPA. Certainly well hopped, with a full bodied malt backbone. Earthy, rich, and heavy. IrishBoy (4210) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bomber from Bottleworks; Nose of floral hops and caramel with a light grapefruit note; fairly clear copper with a medium beige head; flavor is peppery, bitter, and a caramel background; finish moderately bitter. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Solid northwest IPA. Pours a beautiful copper with a rocky white head. Not much aroma. Flavor starts out mild but there’s lots of chewy hops in the finish. Fairly standard for the style but well done. ABUSEDGOAT (2769) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Amber colored, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is grapefruit, some overripe fruit, pine, citrus. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness. Despite having some of my favorite hops, I only thought this one decent.

Fruity, sweet, but growingly dry IPA that is less clean than expected.
Sleeper (91) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2008
High drinkability. Easy-going hop flavours that you’ve met in countless other examples. Earthy more than caramelly, thus finishing rather dry.
Rather simple juicy malts, more pale than crystal. Fairly yeasty for an IPA.
Pours with thick head. Smells hoppy. Tastes of grapefruit and hops. Very drinkable. I got this as a recommendation @ 99 Bottles in Federal Way. I haven’t had a bad Lazy Boy yet! MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
My Bottom Line:LinusStick (3473) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Multifarious hoppiness blooms into piney, orangey, and resinous petals across the juicy, sweet fruitiness of this approachable and highly drinkable India Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the hazy orange red.
-The fruity sweetness is not exactly caramelized.
-The forthcoming hop bitterness is earthy and resinous.
-Flavors do not coalesce completely in this bottle, yet they are quite amenable.
A great IPA. Heard of this through Draft Magazine (it IS good for something after all!) and glad I did. Aroma was nice...caramel malt and strong earthy hops. Pour was very dark for an IPA. Nice suprise. A dark clear gold (light brown) with a one finger off white head. Taste was very hoppy with a strong caramel backbone. After the swallow the hops dry the mouth and throat. Full bitter aftertaste and good carbonation. Ratman197 (14952) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bomber poured a clear dark copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of earthiness, carmel, light pine and hints of orange and mangoe. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of earthiness, carmel, orange peel and light pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.
