Bottle, shared at game night. Dark brown, orange-amber highlights. Thick toffee malts, soft citrus and resin hop character with moderate bitterness. Nice flavours and good balance. asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2007
On tap at Winter Beer Festival. Pours and reddish-brown color with a small head on top. Aroma is a nice mixture of sweet caramel malts and citrusy hops. This beer was a nice twist on a traditional IPA with fruity flavors hitting the tongue. Not overbearing and well-pronounced just a nice hint of a touch. A tasty winter ale! cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2011

Bomber from State Line. Pours turbid muddy ruddy brown colored with tan head. Nose is caramel malt, spice of the nutmeggy variety, backup hops. Tastes rich, with caramel malt, x-mas spices, hops, and a complex finish. jake65 (3942) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle: Pours a dark copper color with a finger of creamy beige head. Long lasting head and lots of thick sheet lacing. The nose strikes a balance between a PNW fresh hop ale and barleywine. The fresh floral and spicy hops work well with a sturdy malt base. Lightly spicy finish and some lingering floral bitters. A little sweet, sticky resin too. Kinda like a toned down Arrogant Bastard with an emphasis on the spicy/herbal hops. Enjoyable. Paincane (170) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Ruby amber hued body w/ tan head & good lace. Toffee, caramel aromas. Malt forward sweet flavors finish dry, lightly hoppy, spicy & bitter. TimE (5930) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2015
Beautiful Amber brown color. Frothy white head. Big pine hoppy nose with big malt character. Definitely reminds me a bit of Celebration ale. Nice big malt backbone with agressive hoppiness with pine and chocolate poking through. Balqnced, a touch sweet, but very approachable. Decent hoppy finish.
