Bomber courtesy of Wellestone. Malty sweet aroma. Reddish amber in color. Lasting off white head. Nice hop zing. Somewhat dry. Not bad.

22 oz bottle. Pours copper. Light grapefruit aroma. Big white frothy head. Good lacing. Some minor bitter in the flavor. Pretty light for an IPA. Very easy drinking. If the goal was to create a very light drinkable IPA then this is a success. Its a nice beer, very solid, but no wow factor.

Pretty good beer. Similar to a two heartded, but not quite there. Hops are well balanced, just not enough flavor for a good ipa.

Kinda like a lite Two Hearted. Pretty easy drinking. Would be good on the golf course on a hot day.

Onslow (1162) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2013
One tap at University Roadhouse. Clear copper brew with off white head and good head retetnion. Good aroma with a bit of citrus and floral hops. Taste is... eak. Not much malt to speak of, which can be OK but the hops are rather lacking too. A little citrus, very little resin, shot dry and nondescript finish... Rather bland. More like a Portage IPA than a Kalamazoo IPA.

Easy drinking and thirst quenching ipa here. Plenty of citrus and fruit notes, malty but not in a bad way.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2013
Brownish orange pour with a thin mist of white head. Sweet citrus hop aroma that’s really light. Taste is very similar to hopsolution. Juicy grapefruit, peachy hop flavor with some burton salt flavor on finish. Lighter than two hearted. Fairly low carbonation, slightly dry finish. Good light IPA that has some juicy hop qualities instead of just being bitter.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On-tap at the Cafe, drank from a pint glass...Pours a very clear light copper. An off white head, good retention and lacing. Looks good if not for the body being a touch light...The aroma is dead, a little citrus but that’s its, disappointing... The taste is terrible, light toffee with stale hops. Had this right after the IRA, not even in the same galaxy. This is bad and needs to be passed on.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2011
Tap at bells. Huge citrus aroma, grapefruit, mango and caramel. Pour deep orange color. Taste mango, tropical fruit, citrusy, piney, resiny hops, caramel a little sweet. Medium body fine carb. Quite good easy to drink I like Two Hearted better tho.

12 oz. Bottle. Classic ipa. Dark goldish color with a light head. Drinkable but nothing super great.
