Bomber bought @ The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Pours rather clear fizzy pale amber with a frothy and fizzy offwhite head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and hoppy fresh with caramel, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, orange zest, freshly cut grass, pine and very subtle hints of rose pepper and ginger. Taste is slightly sweet and bitter with grapefruit juice, lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit rind, fresh grass, resin, pine, wet leaves and hints of minerals. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with oily pine, grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind, fresh grass and wet leaves. Very nice, citric and refreshing. ales will

From a can. Looks and smells great. Seems to be sculpins hoppier, more bitter brother. When it comes to IPA's I prefer a little more balance between malt and hops but I can deal. Solid IPA, particularly for the hop heads.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: piney, malty, slightly more toasty than I would expect of an IPA
Appearance: perfect pale amber with white lacy head that lingers throughout the entire experience
Taste: slight bitterness upfront with an even more bitter finish, and a slightly acidic finish
Mouthfeel: very light bodied, slightly sticky feel
Overall it's a good ipa, but I don't get as much grapefruit that is in other reviews. I get the bitterness of a grapefruit, but not the citrus flavors

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle: no freshness date that I can see
Appearance: Very transparent dark copper body that looks beautiful under a very thick off-white head.
Aroma: I get a very strong orange zest aroma. There’s a bit of a pine aroma in there as well. It smells very fresh.
Taste: I get a light bitter grapefruit flavor, and the aftertaste has a grain flavor.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is off-dry with a good amount of bitterness that doesn’t linger.
Overall: It was a really good IPA. I live on the East Coast and this is a beer brewed in CA, and it tastes very fresh. I am impressed by that. I would buy it again

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle with a really cool label. Pours a nice goldenrod color, slight tan head, a bit less lacing than I would expect. Aroma is citrus hops with some floral notes. Flavor is strong bitter hops up front with a slight caramel backside. Body is a bit thinner than I’d expect for a 7% beer. Overall I go for IPAs that are slightly thicker and maltier, but still, this is one hell of a beer.

Alaranjado com boa formação de espuma e persistente. Aromas cítricos e caramelo, doce em calda. Carbonatada e com boa acidez. No paladar cítrico e doce com amargor na medida. Seca a boca no final, mas com vontade de virar o próximo copo.
