On tap @ Bakgården Både &, Kristiansand. Unclear, orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma has ripe fruit and caramel. Flavor has soft caramel malt, ripe fruit and decent bitterness. Medium body and decent aftertaste of caramel malt and pleasant bitterness. Fine, but I think it might have been better served fresher.

Bomber. Poured clear, lighter orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet oranges and honeyed malts topped by fresh pine, floral, and grapefruity hoppage.. peppery on the back of the nose. The flavor found honey and light biscuity sweetness at the core with peppery and orangey bitterness throughout.. very spicy with a hit of raw alcohol on the finish. Medium-bodied and a touch sharp on the palate.. this was alright.

Solid PNW IPA, hop forward lots of pine and resin notes, finishes with slightly citrus, light body, pours a pretty dark amber good head.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Lots of caramel and biscuit on the nose, light lime and citrus notes, a little iced tea. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of biscuit, caramel, lime iced tea, a little danky citrus notes as well. Biscuity finish. Not my favorite. Way too much biscuit and crystal malt. Jesus.

Bomber. Sweet and sticky. Some bitterness but not enough. Finish is citrus and lots of honey.

22oz bomber. Oily hemp old school IIPA aroma, not really that appealing. Resinous, thick hop flavors, not really capturing the Simcoe or Galena. Drinks really heavy for the moderate ABV. Lots of hops and a sweet malt backdrop...but this just isn’t that well crafted. Unfiltered amber brown-tan. Seriously respectable off-white head...long lasting. Loses points right back when I watch the floaties actually swim around the glass. I actually strained it and it tastes and looks better, but lost some carbonation. Resinous sticky hop aftertaste...nothing really distinct.

Probably not a new bottle...love the hop profile in here it just didn’t seem fresh. Good sticky feel, but the aroma and flavored are muted. Gotta date...

Rich mahogany body, a beautiful luminous amber, topped with an ok head. Fruity, juicy aroma with some foresty notes mixed in. Body is juicy fruity, more sweet than bitter, a tad syrupy, but not too bad.

demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bomber: Aroma is big on hops, and no discernible malt notes in the scent. Appearance is a lightly reddish hue with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is got those hops but more subdued than in the aroma. Palate is medium carbonation with an aftertaste of hard candy and hops. Overall, It’s alright. I don’t like the hops in this one for some reason. Cheers!
