2.59/5  rDev -24.7%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bomber of unknown date poured into a Brugge pint glass.

This beer has sort of a dirty orange with tinges of ruby color and a thick buttermilk head with a slightly brown edge that leaves a spiderweb of lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is mostly malt with a hint of citrus and... pinesol? On second thought, more like lemon-scented floor cleaner.

The taste is muted on the front but with a nice bitter hop on the back, still the transition is rather abrupt and it isn't exactly what I would refer to as a 'floral' ipa - more like citrus pith. Not bad, but not my favorite. Sort of a middle-of-the-road ipa.

The mouthfeel feels like it's going to be thin at first, but comes back with a bit more body - and a sugary coating at the end that is actually making my throat a bit sore.

All in all, it's an ok ipa, but if I'm in the oregon area there are others I'd probably reach for on the shelves. Or maybe I was handed an old bottle.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy dark straw body.
The aroma is grain and lemon.
The taste is strong bitterness and malty.
The texture is thicker.
It's enjoyable.

On tap at the brewpub in Sisters.

Deep medium-dark red-amber with a fairly durable head and a ample streaks of sticky lacing.

Aroma: Herbal and floral hops. Soe citrus too.

Flavor: Medium strong herbal hop punch with building bitterness partially reduced by the malts.

Feel: Medium body with appropriate crisp carbonation.

O: recommended as a subtlely spicy IPA.

Not a bad beer by any means. No bottle on or best by date, as I'm assuming this is a bit aged due to all the floaties in the glass I poured it in.

If you were to tell me that this was a Red Pale Ale, I would have scored this a bit higher. Drinks as such.

22 picked up in Northern California ... Pours with a nice off white head and good lacing... the brew is crystal clear amber... probably too dark for an IPA..

Nose shows toasty malts and piney hops that don't quite keep up.

Good bitterness up front but the hops die back quick when hit with the maltiness... sorta lingering tropical fruity hoppiness on the finish...

Decent brew for sure... A bit muddy... the brewer needs to separate the malt and hops to make it more enjoyable.

damn good ipa. don't ruin it by NOT pouring a big ass head or by serving it freezing cold. leave it at room temp and then give it <5min in fridge, then just dump it in a glass and smell it while the head reduces.... great beer. was an a or a+ when poured at home in a pint glass and a c or c- when poured for me in a stupid chilled glass with NO head at the brewpub place in sisters.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a clear pint glass. Other half of bottle went into my son's glass. No freshness data on bottle. Paid $4.99 at Capital Market. Went looking for a new IPA to try. Probably look again tomorrow.

A-Poured a clear amber hue. Much darker than most IPAs I have had, except for ones with rye. A vigorous pour produced a about a two finger head that receded quickly and left only modest lacing. Appearance seemed awry since not even close to photo on brewery's website. If it appeared like the photo I would rate it 4.5 for appearance. I prefer lighter colored IPAs.

S-Malt, or malts (6 were used according to website), dominate the aroma. Not okay for an IPA, especially from the NW. Hops should be featured, but there is not enough to get beyond the butterscotch and caramel malt notes. Too sweet smelling, again from the malt bill.

T-Better than expected after the appearance and smell apprehensions. Adequately hoppy and bitter with a slight after taste. Caramel malts feature strongly in the taste. Expected more of a hop bomb at 82 IBU's for a 6% ABV, but the bitterness is not too assertive. Just not enough flavor from the hops. Were they in the kettle too long? Dry hopped?

M-Smooth and well balanced. Nice carbonation level.

O-This went down easily enough, but it joins the ranks of the increasing plethora of unimpressive IPAs.

22 oz bottle from Roths Sunnyside Store in S.Salem. $4.59 Nice darkish burnt orange/amber with an attractive coffee n cream coloured head..thats pretty thick ans staya around. Pretty strong malt driven aromas..but the piney hops show through. Heavy malty/nutty tastes then a burst of spruce tip..lingering bitterness..that is somehow mellow. Pretty Ok on the palate..thickish but still drinkable.. I liked this..then i do prefer thicker maltier IPAs
