4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
10/26/12. Bought 2 $3.39 bottles from CBO and was my first beer at wasabi.
Rated as one of the highest ipa's out there and I agree. Hazy gold with a very long-lasting full head. Very strong citrusy aroma and the taste follows the nose. Heading to My Favorites!

On tap at Pizzeria Uno Bensalem. Surprisingly nice light color. Aroma is pine and citrus. Very little head. Taste is wonderful. It has a very upfront hop kick that isn’t overbearing, and doesn’t stay thick or harsh on your palate. Brought me joy.

Bottle (22 ounce): Clear, golden with a hint of copper and a thick head. Huge lift of fresh hops. Lantana, citrus, pine. Very fresh. Green but rich.. Dry to off dry. Medium to medium high bitterness. Not sour. Rich, very fresh. Great weight and length. Bitterness is balanced by flavor. Tropical, citrus, pine hop flavors with malt to match. Intense west coast IPA but as balanced as they come.
Intense but lovely beer.

Lots of grapefruit in this one. Bitter citrus hops, caramel, orange, tart fruit and pine with undertones of bread. Well balanced and a dry finish. Lives up to its reputation as a world class IPA

Strong citrus IPA smell. Pours clear orange with a white head. Flavor is all grapefruit and bitter. Light beer with average carbonation, very good!

First of all, this is my favorite style, so I am biased for sure. But, I love the aroma of beautiful citrus. Pours a hazy, golden color. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly sour, and some, oh so tasty, bitterness. Palate is average carbonation, and a wonderful bitter, dry finish. Overall, this is what I LOVE to drink and BP does a wonderful job. I could drink this all day....and maybe I will.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a beautiful gold with a thick white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, oranges, HOPS!!! Hops and more hops on the palat, but somehow not overpowering; very easy to drink. Nice dry bitter finish. This is without a doubt one of the best balanced super-hoppy IPAs I have ever had the pleasure to try; glad I bought more than one bomber!

Beautiful orange copper with a pillowy white head. Gorgeous lacing throughout. I just have to sit and admire this baby. Bouqet of grapefruit and melon. Pungent hop flavor with citrus and the perfet malt balance. Lingering sweetness with long lasting bitterness. Dry finish with some alcohol warmth, I can’t put it down, it is soo good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was my first time ordering online and none of the hop forward beers I purchased came with any dates that I could tell, disappointing. This one is over the hill.
Nice golden pear tone, thinner head that recedes to a minimal cap but then retains throughout
Nose is a bit subdued, mostly citrus but truly difficult to discern, I have an easier time smelling the glass that I poured it into.
The character isn’t nearly as muted as I would’ve guessed by the smell - all that citrus - tangerine, grapefruit, abstract bitter... clearly outdated though.
Mouthfeel is thinner than I would’ve expected but seems appropriate for this particular brew, carbonation is still spot on.
Overall, I guess I’ll just wait for a good trade opportunity or a vacation to give this one a real review.
