Bomber from Pint Defiance. Clear gold pour with a short, persistent off-white head leaving heavy lace. Nose is mango, peach, fresh-cut grass, ganja and pine Ė all the hops aromas I love! Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Pine, ganja, some tropical fruit, light caramel and toast. Finish is more hops, but without excessive bitterness, however the body lightens up a bit and washes out. A solid IPA, but Iíd expect a lower ABV (and therefore more sessionability) for the body and balance.

I really liked this beer. Light golden hue, good head, and best of all great lacing. That translates to wonderful creaminess. A great beer for a child late night.

Pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, pine, grapefruit, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a beautifully balanced, hoppy and lightly fruity finish. Flat out, just a bloody well made IPA. Pure and simple!

Incredible balanced tropical fruit and piney resin smell. Lingering hop resin flavor that lasts for miles. This is the best ipa I have ever tried. Itís got almost a champagne like dryness, and full glory while it sits on the tongue

Looks like Iím ushering this beer into the Beers of Fame list with the 1000th review! Welcome to the club!
Pours honey with an etched surface and soapy white rim. Notes of grapefruit, honey, biscuit, resin, peach and a bit of grass; relatively malt forward for a CA IPA. Flavor is sweet and honey like. Not particularly bitter, plenty of lemon and tangerine, but nothing particularly assertive. I think the malts are overpowering in this example, and the bitterness needs a bit of help queuing up. Medium bodied with nice, slightly hi and sharp carb and an off dry finish. Decent beer, and Iíd suggest it to an IPA newcomer. I wouldnít suggest it to a tried hop-head. Too much malty sweetness is similar to the 90min IPA.
