Bomber from Harry & David in Medford, OR. Pours clear copper with a 4 finger creamy beige head. It’s alive! Aroma of a sort of nutty roasted malt with something floral on top. Med body. Still seems a bit nutty, but now there’s resin to go with the floral. Citrus? Don’t thinks so, cause there’s not a hint of citrus sour. Or zest. Very over the pond, except for the ABV. Tasty drink.

On tap @ TapHouse in Seattle. Light amber colour, hazy, lightly lacing cap. Aroma is earthy leafy hops and sweet malt equally. Flavour is sweet straw-like malts and earthy light hops. Pretty light, and quite British in character, whether that was intended or not. douglas88 (9569) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. Sweet caramel, dusty, light citrus. Ok. Light flavors. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
22. Pours a murky dark amber with bright golden brown edges and a sudsy tan film on top. Big caramel and oranges nose, with some candied orange peel knocking around. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, toast, and lots of oranges with candied peels on the mid palate. Sweetness grows into a pronounced brown sugar on the finish. On the sweet side, and, while it’s hoppy enough, it’s virtually unbitter at every turn. Appealing IPA for those who avoid the bitter ones, kinda like a hopped-up wintery brown. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle:   Hazy orange, a little dirty, moderate to large rocky sandy head, nice lacing.   Pale bitterness up front, a little citrus peel and pith, but overall not too biting.   Has a slight sweet grassy aspect.   Minor pith on the nose, pale bitterness.   Not a bright example.   Fairly clean, average aroma and flavor profile.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Decent IPA, but nothing out of the ordinary when so many exist.

Rich hazy deep amber coloured body with a copper highlight and a nice, dense three cenitmetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich caramel malt, english hops, some toffee sweetness and a touch of more bittering, grapefruity hops, but not much. Medium-bodied; Rich malty body and mouthfeel but a less than stellar hop experience with a sweet, caramel, raisin and toffee flavour and a hint of bitterness at the end. Aftertaste has mostly an earthy bite, some good alcohol and a deep english hop flavour that is more like and ESB or traditional EPA than an American IPA at all. I sampled this 65 cL bottle as my first beer back from a week with mostly lagers in the whole of Asia, so this was a welcome and flavourful treat. This bottle was purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 28-February-2012 for US$4.46 sampled at home in Washington on 08-April-2012. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Not bad for the price point. $3.50 I think. Nose of toffee, peppery and earthy hops. A little sugar and a little caramel. Pours copper, off white head, soft lace. Flavors of toffee, light biscuit, caramel, peppery and earthy hops. Not unpleasant. Fairly unassertive but easy to drink. Decent beer. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice IPA flavor and finish. Good malt backing this was a very tasty IPA. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle: Solid IPA. Mild carbonation. Rich malt flavors. Chalky cocoa, light toast, and subtle caramel. Zingy, flavorful hops. Earthy, herbal and floral. Fantastic hop aromas. Great balance between the sweetness and bitterness. Nothing overpowers anything else. Kind of rides the line between English-style and American-style IPAs. Good stuff. hawanna (3344) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2013
Nice hoppy and bitter IPA. Some fruity and malty notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
