Another great example of the style. A little light on nose yet got resin. Has fruity goodness and bitterness, late, on taste. Looks good. Ticks right boxes. 7.5%, 12oz, 2.2std drks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. For rating number 2,300 I picked one that has received many high ratings before this one. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a short-lived white head and a touch of lacing. What strikes me as interesting about the aroma is this sort of melted caramel mingling with the earthy, grassy hops. The body is a bit better than medium. The taste is nicely balanced with a toasted caramel beginning and a mellower but notable grassy hop finish. I can see why this gets such high ratings.

A good classic IPA. Classic bitter hops. A nice amber color with a fairly good-sized white head, Lots of bitter on the palette with a nice long finish. A good enjoyable IPA,

Pours a nice cloudy orange with chunky foam. Taste is creamy like cream soda with spices, very enjoyable. Trixie and chim chim would be proud. The bomber was $5 ironically. Go speed racer go!

Very well balanced floral, pine, and citrus IPA. Smooth drinking with light head/sediment. Quenched my IPA thirst and delivered a subtle hop bitterness. IMO great and will return to my beer cooler again.
