On tap at Capone’s. Strong grapefruit character and hoppy, but somehow possesses a more refined taste than some of the other beers I’ve had. Quite tasty.

Pours up a deceptively light orange/gold. Nose is greeted by strong notes of grapefruit, citrus rind, and pine. Taste is expectedly grapefruit-y with very little bitterness, and some solid malt flavors to close things out. Spectacular IPA.

Yellow-orange pour with a white head. Aroma of fruity hops-pineapple and mango. Can’t wait to taste it. Taste is a sweet sticky hop explosion. Nice balance of malt, hops and flavor. A very tasty IPA. Nice aftrtaste. OK lacing. The flavor lingers well after the drink is gone. Yeah!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 Bomber. Pours a clear, light golden-orange with one finger off-white head.
Awesome aromas here. Nose of floral, pine, orange, resin and honey. Thin lace. Light carbonation.Taste similar to nose; citrus, pine and resin with a decent malt backbone. Not too bitter or hoppy. The taste is just short of the aromas. Medium finish.

Hazy dark gold pour with a bright white head. Big Earthy hop nose that foreshadows what is about to come. Great taste...grassy hops are built up by a good malt backbone. Citrus and bitter hop flavors tag along but don’t overpower. The malt body gives the beer a really nice mouthfeel. I described this beer to joebussard as "A poor man’s Pliny." Very good.

Moderate Citrus hop aroma with light amounts of pine and floral. Hazy orange color with a large white head. Super strong bitter taste throughout. Bitterness fades ever so slightly in the finish. Clean palate.
