3.9/5  rDev +2.1%

Not many wet hop beers this year so I am glad I found this for $5.95 at my local House of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.

A - Mildly hazy bright amber yellow with a bouquet of head well over a full inch. Makes for perfect lacing.
S - Fresh citrus rind, biscuit malt, some bread mostly mild but it's really not the sent I love it's the taste.
T - Much more piney hops than I expected. Clings to the palate hard. Almost soapy I have not experienced such an intensity since "Green Flash West Coast IPA" Yakima hops I don't enjoy apparently but in this beer it's pretty balanced with the malts. Still very biting like mouthing a fresh grapefruit. A hop lovers dream.
M - It's on par with the style light to medium but I can't seem to do more than sip.

Overall it's a well crafted beer Yakima done perfect but it's not my cup of tea. For the record I love everything this brewery does so keep it craft!

Pours a dirty light orange, with a nice fluffy white head, with good lacing.

Smell is a bready and subtle.

Taste is way bigger than the smell. Lots of flavors, malty and biscuits at first then a nice burst of citrus and pine, with a bitterly smooth finish.

Mouth-feel is dry and with a lovely bitterness. Perfect carbonation.

Overall, very nice beer, excellent flavor. I just love fresh IPAs, and this is another very good one.

Bomber > Mason Pint

A - Clear gold with two fingers of big thick foamy white head, Good amount of lacing.
S - Floral, lots of grapefruit, pine, aroma as a whole is a bit muted.
T - Absurdly bitter, abundance of grapefruit rind, floral notes, a little citrus juice.
M - Too bitter, does no good to your palate.
O - For the first one in this series its a bitter (pun) disappointment. Would not have again. Too single note of a beer.
