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 (7722) - Utah, USA - JUN 4, 2010
22oz bottle at The Bayou iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2010
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 (17583) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2010
Bottle. Hazy orange with medium size off-white head. Flavour is malt, fruit and hops. poisoneddwarf (2563) - 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.

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. junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bread. That should sum up a lot of the description. Maybe a hint of dark chocolate. This smells and feels like a heavily sedimentary beer. This to me is full bodied. Good transition from front to back with a long lasting finish. Balanced amount of alcohol, bitter, and sourness. Nice. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a cloudyish amber with a fluffy white head. Hoppy piny nose. Nice easy to drink ipa with good balance. Very dry with lots of bitterness. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy orange with a tall, dense off-white head. Head has reasonable retention and laces well. On the nose, strong American hop aromas of pine and citrus, along with caramel malts and apple. On the tongue, it begins moderately bitter. As the flavours evolve, it becomes very bitter and quite acidic. The finish is long, intensely bitter and very dry. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent American IPA, but not as great as I’d expected from Rogue. This is a very dry IPA; I feel like a touch more residual sugar would have rounded it out nicely. The aroma could also be more complex: as big a fan of Amarillo as I am, I feel like the hopping was rather simple. These criticisms aside, this is a very fine beer. Definitely worth another try. 2010-05-12
