This is my go to when I want a good beer. I know I will never be let down by it. I'm no beer carnasuar or anything, but I know a good beer when I get it, and this is one damn fine brew.

Orangish coppery color, full on inch of head. Aroma yields substantial bittering hops that don't drop a lot of other smells.

Another very bitter ipa. Why is this in a bomber? So much metallic bitterness, lot of crystal malt, caramel etc. . . Oakshire makes some awesome stuff (Galaxy IPA) but this is markedly average. No off flavors, but really not a lot of flavors beyond metal, bitterness and caramel.

Amber with a decent white head. Nose is a bit piney with some rind. Taste is similar but resin is light. A touch of cat piss. Decent bitter linger, but not overwhelming. Body is medium light with moderate carbonation.

Look: Light clear yellow color. Clear and light head.

Smell: Very hop forward beer. Hints of citrus fruits.

Taste: Hop bomb beer. The hops are the show of the beer and has that slight grapefruit, orange taste to keep you drinking more.

Feel: Light, crisp, refreshing, hoppy.

Overall. Not a very balanced IPA but good enough to satisfy hop heads. Decent IPA

A nice grapefruit bitterness on the first sip, with some malt sweetness at the finish. There is some pine as well. Not my favorite IPA, but very drinkable.

Nice orange hue...Tastes really earthy and dank with decent head. Nice bitterness with a great exhale from the the finish. I like that. This is good...leaves a sticky flavor in your mouth with good esters and candy like smells up front. Obtained this bomber for 3.99 and very much worth it. A lot of quality here. Carbonation on the high side and not much to knock...Good brew.

From the freshness dated (Julian) (23 days old) CAN into a perfect pint glass results in a cloudy orange body topped by a solid inch head that recedes into a cap of foam that leaves sticky lacing as the level drops. Nice looking unfiltered IPA
Aroma is not subtle with strong citrus and pine dominating, you can smell this a foot away from the glass, Oh ya!
Taste is grapefruit rind bitter up front, some mid sweetness and ending with a long bittering piney aftertaste, perhaps just a tad too long of an aftertaste but still quite enjoyable
Slightly creamy, maybe a touch on the heavy side, not something you would want to pound a sixer of.
Overall this is a very enjoyable Pacific Northwest IPA That is well worth the price of admission. The CAN is also appreciated.

Growler from Jacksons. At first taste, was bowled over by citrus hops, however that quickly turned into a somewhat metallic, astringent finish. Medium golden body with foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, malt, yeast. Taste hits up front with hops, and finishes dry and tinny.
