Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is rye and floral/citrus. Med body or better. Flavor is strongly rye spice with some floral and citrus hop. It tastes good, and it’s finishing nicely bitter. Pretty nice ale.
Appearance: Lighter golden and fairly clear. Decent half finger of white foam
Nose: Citrus hops with a decent amount of medium roasted malt sweetness.
Taste: Lightly resinous with citrus and a good amount of bitter.
Body: medium to lighter. Decent carbonation.
Parting thoughts: a nice drinkable IPA.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This is amber in color and very clear. An off white one finger layer of foam leaves a sticky even layer. This smells like a classic west coast IPA. Caramel and lots of tangerine and citrus. Pleasant. A bit later the rye was noted. It is tasted more than it is found in the aroma and is a significant part of the flavor. Citrus is under that and later tropical fruit. A nice bitterness, too. This is nice. A nice balance to this beer and everything pulls together well.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a copper with a bocky beige head. Nose of citrus and floral hops. Hint of rye in the aroma. Medium body. The flavor is citrus and the rye is quite tasted, but well balanced. The finish is bitter and rye spice. This is a solid west coast IPA (with rye), Does not try to do too much and is nice drinking.

Draft - Sweet caramel, pine and some peel. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Light resin and and bitterness with a long finish. Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Clear golden orange hue with creamy white head that settled. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, caramel, resin, tangerine. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a solid hop bitterness. Overall this is a nice brew.

On tap at the brewpub in Sisters.
Deep medium-dark amber with a limited head and a few streaks of sticky lacing.
Aroma: Sweet. Caramel malts with some fruity hops with a faint herbal aspect.
Flavor: Medium strong herbal hop punch with building bitterness partially reduced by the malts. A load of grapefruit and orange peel in the finish.
Feel: Near medium body with appropriate crisp carbonation.
O: recommended as an alternative to an APA. bpreo (2863) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2014
It’s about as average as beer can get. The Rye flavor is nice. Unfortunately I think it lacks as an IPA. BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
I am loving the Rye Ales these days. I had Three Creeks other rye brew, Stonefly Rye and I preferred this one since it is more flavourful. The aroma is bread and black pepper with some spruce hops. This clever girl is dark copper orange with a frothy white head. The taste was pretty yummy, like a better than average IPA with the boon of spicy, earthy rye along for the whole length of the ride. One of the better Rye Ales I have tried. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bomber. Really present rye nose and flavors throughout this fairly dry rye IPA. Nice and bitter in the finish. Tasty, not bold. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2014
From 22 oz bomber. Color is cloudy dark orange with a white sticky head that lingers around the rim. The sweet smell has some grain. Flavor is a bit sour, then grain, then prodominant bitter. 8.5 BD, 5 JD, 7.5 Patrice
