22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice very slight cloudy dark golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice islands and some sticky lacing behind. The noes is hoppy, slightly malty, with some pretty nice citrus notes. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, slight malt note, citrusy. Medium body, ABV hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. My first from this brewery.

I purchased a 22 oz bottle of this IPA and poured into standard pint glass. Amber orange in color, a nice citrus and floral smell, juicy hops (blend of Cascadian, Simcoe and Centenial) make this a pleasant beer to drink. A bit of pine bite that lingers on the tongue. Carmel malt flavors permeate this as one exhales. The head was about 1/2 inch and receded with a film-thin lacing on top. I like when a beer maintains it's body, and has a clean, yet flavorful finish. Not too bitter, but still plenty of hops. Overall a solid IPA

22oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

A: Amber-orange with good clarity. Off white head retains at a half inch. Thin, broken webs of lacing.

S: Floral and fresh cut grass notes. Soft pine and earth. White grapefruit and tangerine slices. Blood orange and perhaps a hint of passion fruit too. Light grain and caramel malt tones underneath. Very focused and clean.

T: Oily and spicy hops. Pine and earth. Grassy. Bitterness is on the gentler side. Juicy citrus notes of blood orange, tangerine, white grapefruit. Passion fruit too. Toasty and lightly grainy, dry caramel. Oily hops trail into a soft and easy finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Filling in the mouth and softly creamy. It glides easily through the mouth. Sharp carbonation adds a strong, crisp bite that refreshes and quenches. Super quaffable overall.

O: Impressive craftsmanship here. Such a tightly honed and focused IPA. It teases a lot of great flavors out of old reliable hop strains. It's super drinkable and scores a ton of points for drinkability. I'd gladly park my ass on a barstool and drink this all night.

light pine and oranges on aroma, beautiful lacing, low fluffy head, delicious floral piney notes with bitter orange rind and slight orange aroma and a rich crystal malt profile. Medium body, good medium carb. Orange color and white head. Overall this is incredibly easy and fun to drink, plus it's just so darn pretty to look at.

This pours a hazy orange with one finger of puffy white head. The smell is lovely - more orange than many of the IPA's I encounter. The body has layers of malt and resin that make it extremely satisfying. The overall package is great - awesome label that celebrates all that is great about Portland's beer scene.
