22 oz. Bomber

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden orangey color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creay one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew. A nice thirst quencher.

Delightful aroma evident as soon as the bottle top popped. But, the love affair ended there. It’s good, but nothing that interesting. Felt a bit thin, but good lacing. June 2018. Portland, OR. Plaid Pantry

fruity tropical aroma, pours golden, with a small head and some nice lacing remains, front is tropical, feels a little more carbonated than i was expecting, a very light hoppiness, no piney taste, more mellow fruit, getting grapefruit mango in the middle, aftertaste is delightful. very refreshing.

Hugely aromatic, the scent of fermenting pineapple greets the nose. body is very light but crisp and spritzy on the tongue. Color is golden yellow with a wispy cap of foam. Lovely fizzy, melt-in-your-mouth texture enlivened with mango and a whiff of pine. Light on the malt with pleasingly mellow.

This is what I would call a really excellent Pale Ale. Hard bitten IPA fans might be disappointed, but it's hugely quaffable and kissed with hops. This year's version is brewed with Galaxy and Eldorado and is rated at 5.1% ABV. There is just a modest bitter aftertaste. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market in Shoreline, Wash.

L: Gold to bronze. Light head. Not hazy, but not bright.
S: It smells of honey and sugars, with an almost imperceptible hops aroma.
T: Very sweet and malty, which overpowers the hops. The hops taste more of pine that citrus. A bitter, if and somewhat peppery aftertaste.
F: Nice mouth feel, very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.
O: I would never hesitate to order this (despite the name), and it is quite unique for an American IPA.

A: Poured from the growler into an imperial pint glass. Body is light straw-yellow with a small whitish head.

S: Oddly and surprisingly sweet - bready malt comes to mind.

T: Sweet malt foundation is followed by modestly lemony hops.

M: A little slick. Call it light-to-medium in heft.

O: OK. Not impressed.

Gold color with a light haze. Small but lasting head. Ample streaks and spots for lace.

Tropical hop aroma. Decent malt presence.

Definitive pale malt start that dominates until the swallow where the white pepper like hop takes over. The bitterness is the predominant flavor of the aftertaste. The body is predictable as is the carbonation.

I got the first one because of the name. I got the next 3 because I liked it. If you are looking to suck the sap out of Spruce Tree, this may not be your IPA, but if you want something a little lighter, juicier, and just plain drinkable, this is a great beer. I want this while sitting outside in a summer breeze, gazing upon the unicorns and sasquatch that frequent my mind.

On tap at IBU last night.

A clear light orange with a dense, white head, this looks solid. The nose is quite excellent and refreshing. Bright and fruity with plenty of citrus and some tropical fruit, I get a combination of mandarins, peaches, mango and some grapefruit. Malt character is minimal. On the palate, there is a mild hop bitterness and plenty of hop flavor. The mouthfeel is a little thin and mineraly, especially from the carbonation. Drying and mildly chalky on the finish, there's a moderate hop flavor present. Light in body and refreshing, this is solid stuff.
