Bomber. Poured a hazy orange with a quarter inch head. Aroma was of floral hops, the Amarillo pops in this one. Nice aroma, may have been a bit faded but damn good. Some bready malts are present too although the hops are highlighted. Taste is hoppy and dry. Lots of orange and citrus. Bitterness is held in check, nice and smooth. Not bad, although I have had better IPAs. 944play (427) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2010
22oz in weizen glass. Foggy orange with abundant froth and rising bubblage. Apricot, orange, and bright herbs on the nose don’t quite follow up in the flavor, which is rather chalky. Racy bitterness dominates palate. Description on bottle differs from listing: "7 Ingredients: Two-Row Pale, Cara Foam & Melanoiden [sic] Malts; Amarillo & Rogue Farm Willamette Hops; Free Range Coastal Waters & Top Fermenting Pacman Yeast." ChainGangGuy (4926) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Appearance: Pours a hazy, burnished gold body with a frothy, creamyish, off-white head.
Smell: Bready scent spritzed with brightly fruity citrus oils and their accompanying citric juices. Supporting light hints of crisp toffee and white pine blossoms.
Taste: Pale malts with a firmly bready, biscuit-toned quality to it, a round sweetness, and even a small hint of toffee. Though, this is quickly slapped away by a staunch, sharp bitterness and big hop tastes of fresh tangerines, resinous pine, and both white and ruby grapefruits. Modest yeastiness. Final flourish of fruity hops on the bitter, bready finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel stands by its smoothness.
Drinkability: Just a good, solid, smooth India Pale Ale with an aggressive hoppiness, but a sufficing malt character . Mattburns (114) - USA - JUN 5, 2010
This is seriously good. Aroma of citrus and floral. Taste of hops (obviously) ,quite grassy, also there was toffy, caramel, grapefruit. Great big head which flattened but did last throughout white small tight bubbles. a deep orange in colour. Fantastic IPA. Sledutah (7834) - Utah, USA - JUN 4, 2010
22oz bottle at The Bayou

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with a huge ass white head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Floral and citrus
Taste: Floral and sweet malts
A nice IPA. If you like Rogue beers you’ll like this. It has the Rogue house flavor (yeast) throughout the palate.
This beer poured a thick white head with great lacing. Color was amber-orangish looking and the aroma was of hops. Flavor was very good and smooth with the right amount of bitterness to the end. Big fan of Rogue’s products. chrisv10 (18495) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2010
Bottle. Hazy orange with medium size off-white head. Flavour is malt, fruit and hops. poisoneddwarf (2645) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bomber into shaker. Aroma is pine and citrusy hops. A very classic IPA aroma. Pours a hazy orange hue with a medium head and nice creamy lace. Taste is mostly bitter with just a touch of sweet malt. Carbonation is medium and so is the body. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. A very solid, tasty IPA. msante79 (2244) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bomber from Binny’s Des Plaines. Pours hazy light orange with thick off-white head. Aromas citrus, tropical fruit, light pine, malt, and hops. Flavors of citrusy hops, pine, light tropical fruits, and nice malty base evening things out. Nice mix of sweet malts and hops. Not a ton of hops but has a nice balance making it easy to drink. Solid IPA. rking (100) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Very strong west coast hop like IPA. Big bitterness all over the palate. Really overpowers almost everything else.
