MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Nice hazy amber/orange pour with a perfect foam head - lots of lacing. Bitter pine notes up front fading into a nice tropical citrus body, and dare I say mint at the end of the palate? A very crisp and well done IPA. As a side note, I?ve spent a lot of time in Spokane and this beer makes me wish I visited the brewery. Next time! jhamp9 (1860) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Lightly hazy orange pour with a nice lasting yellowish head. Strong pine, resin, and citrus rind nose with a little caramel. Taste follows the aroma is a little extra caramel sweetness. Strong bitterness that lasts into the aftertaste. Medium body. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Poured a gorgeous deep rust with a light head with good lacing. In the mouth is a huge burst of hops with a mild malt backbone. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Serving: bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours an almost cloudy dark amber with a thin off white ring for a head. Slightly minty and herbal nose with some toasted malt. The flavor leads with the hops but gives way to a heavy dose of sweet toasted dark bread and then back to the a minty hop finish. Rather full bodied.

Bomber. Opaque brownish orange, firmer tan foam settles and mostly lasts. Citrus pine hop aroma. Taste is well malted, rich bold caramel/tofffee, aggressively hopped, more citrus, evergreen and floral, some herbs and spice, earthy. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied. Leaning towards Impy status. NFL (Not For Lagerboys) stantheman (1050) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Bomber from BC Liquor store in North Burnaby. A nice medium reddish amber beer with moderate beige head. A nice concoction of fruit, bitter piney citrus hop and gentle malt background. Body is medium. Finish is long and bitter. 3.6. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2014
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is grassy and piney, with hints of barnyard, resin, and isopropyl alcohol. Mouthfeel starts crisp, thick, sweet, and bitter, but quickly switches to a long, dry, and bitter finish. Not as amazing as I thought I remembered this one being, but still pretty great. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Hazed orange pour with clinging white head and lace. Large resiny hops dominate the nose. Semi sweet malt forward flavor with a good finishing bitter. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Solid just a little more bitter than malt.
