Sept. 11, 2006; 22 oz. bomber. Hazy, particulated pour w/ billowy, styrofoam-type head. Thick floral aroma. Attempt to balance the heavy hopping & remarkable bitterness with candyish malts produces a delightfully-chewy brew. I do love the West Coast IPAs.

Bottled, LCRBM. Fruits and herbal hops in the aroma. Orange color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet, herbal, apple and nice bitterness, light sticky.

[2nd Low Countries RateBeer meeting] Aroma of cascade hops and caramel malts.Hazy, orange coloured with an off-white lasting head. Taste is sweet and smooth cascade hoppy. Some malts and fruitiness in it. Just a bit too sweet though, overall a decent ipa.

Smells excellent. Citrusy floral hops. Actually cloudy yellow in appearance. One nice IPA. Great hop flavor from thie beginning, but never gets too dry or bitter. I could drink this again and again and again and...

Bomber. Pours a cloudy, almost murky dark amber with some gold highlights. Huge fruity nose with some pine there, too--nicely managed balancing of the two hop extremes. Body on the light side of medium, with just enough carb to round it out. Some resin comes through in the finish, but the mouth is more of the same from the nose--citrus and pine with enough malt backbone to complement them without getting in their way. Awesome stuff.

22 oz. bomber picked up at Corral a couple of weeks ago. big citrus aroma with a great looking pour of golden orange and very long lasting head and lace. flavor has a nice bitterness to it with all of the hop profile and just enough malt to tie it all together quite nicely. crisp and refreshing.

#1100 22oz. Bottle. Aroma of citrus grapefruit is there with out puting a nose in the glass. Golden body with good head and lacing. Some particles floating around. Good citrus grapefruit flavor along with a stong bitterness in the flavor also. Well balanced gives the dry citrus aftertaste of an IPA. Good Stuff, refreshing brew.

From 22oz Bottle. Pours a lush color of honeyed tangerines with a finger of bubbly white head. Pleasant aromas of sweet tangerines, a hint of rye seed, petunia petals, a little bit of honey, and a slightly bitter bite of cilantro seed - interesting hop and malt combination going on. Lightly carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel with a moderate hop bite. Medium spicy level with some malty gingerbread cookie flavors. Moderate hop bitterness with pink grapefruit and orange zest tones dominating. Final smack of light ginger and cinnimon spice. Clean, tasty balance between malt and hops overall.

This is an excellent IPA. Very fresh and aromatic. Very alcoholic. The hops are really complex in the final brew. I really appreciated the malt backing it up. Highly recommended. Much better that Boonville.
