Bottle from Whole Foods
Cloudy golden color with a lot of floaties; small head. Strange aroma: lemon, soap, rosemary, heather. The mouthfeel is rather dry; no notable malt flavor; strong bitterness; but it has a soapy character, and herbs, and some citrus peel.
Weird, hardly pleasant.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours golden amber with a near white head. Whoosh! The aroma is so hoppy. Floral/resin/citrus/fruit. I think itís all there. This must be a hop headís dream. Med+ body. Flavor is very complex. Iíd swear there was onion in this, over and above floral/resin/citrus/fruit. Onionís a veg, right? There is some clean sweet caramel for backbone, but this is so hoppy it almost burns like capsaicin. Finish is almost cactus flavor with so much hop. My idea is that heat goes with cactus. Forget that. This is really complexly hoppy. Amazing stuff! Drinks fantastically tasty.

On tap at Brouwerís Cafe for Hopfest, pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of dry citrusy hops, bitter orange peel with a slight malt backing. Flavour is quite zesty, with dry citrusy hops and a dry, bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

22. Whether itís pour or package seems to be a crucial distinction with this beer. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with decent carb and some loose sudsy whitish head. Drippy lace. Bright and appealing orange rind nose, but nowhere near the intensity you might expected from a celebrated fresh dipa. Bottle shock? Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel, doughy mid-palate with some resiny hop bite on top of that. Kind of another well-made big hoppy ale in this format.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle: † Bit of a fiery golden, very clear, little carbonation, large foamy white head, nice lacing. † Spicy hop nose, subtle peppercorn and what seems like rye, and a touch of caraway and cardamom (sp?). † Very smooth on the tongue, bitter yet mildly sweet, with a candied citrus like background, a bit pithy. † Did I mention smooth? † A bit of the aformentioned spices, peppercorn and some rye. † This is really clean and crisp. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. † Lovely crisp finish. † Did I mention crisp? † One of the cleaner and crisper type IPAs I have had in a while. † A bit dry too, leaves me a bit quenched and wanting more. † Great stuff!

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Yellow with a white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast and biscuit malt. Flavor is heavy on the citrus, with some iced team notes also coming through. There is also a hint of pine as well as some grassiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
