COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an agressively hopped IPA that features the fruity Centennial and AMarillo varieties. Even massive dry hopping can't hide a rich, full bodied malt palate with toast and toffee notes. The finish is hoppily bitter and somewhat dry. This IPA demands respect.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours a hazy amber/copper with a good frothy beige head. Nice hoppy aroma. Floral and citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. The malt backbone is strong, like a touch of caramel candy, but there’s enough bitter to balance. A very tasty drink. Just keeps on getting better.

Draught Hazy orange-amber; small white head. Slightly sweet, cakey, with a hoppy (!) overtone all the same. Good balance with sweet, heavy malts, and a good USA hops dose, dry, resiny, to the point that retronasal, I seem to get pure spruce. Well balanced, smooth, nearly heavy MF. Very good balance, rare in WC overhopped IPA’s.

Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Orange/amber with not much head. Fairly vacant nose, medium body with light carb. Fruity palate--orange, among other citrus delights. Purely bitter resin hop finish. Classic, delicious, beautifully done IPA.

Medium orange color. Medium head. Aroma is floral hops, and fruit. A full bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are floral, grapefruity and dry. The dry hopping brings out the helps balance the malt sweetness. A nicely balanced, bone dry, somewhat bitter IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is bitter

GABF 09- Boundary Bay IPA. Pours a mostly clear- copper orange with a thin white head. Aroma is definitely straight forwards hops- citrus and resin with pine but as it warms there is a bit of crackery cabbage DMS. Flavor is carapils sweetness, crackery, light DMS, and green citrusy grapefruit hops. Clean finish- moderate bitterness. Ok.

Tap Pint
A deep amber color with a huge hop aroma and flavor. This was a great IPA The hops and malts where almost perfect. This was big hops and for those who like the flavor this was awesome. Great Beer....

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Draught pint at Redbones on 11/15/06
Peachy-marigold tinged blonde beer, with some stronger amber and copper tints through the middle. Medium to medium-high clarity, obviously low filtration. White head is one-finger high, showing moderate retention, light lacing.
Heavily aspirinated aroma is sour and backed by heavily bitter hops. White grapefruit, lemon peel, sourdough bread, sweat and crushed aspirin make short work of the light honeyish malts. Not a very strong aroma, with the yeast adding a bland note. All citrus, light resin, not too encouraging...
Heavily sour/bitter twang in the mouth, with alpha acids running rampant, an aspirin and dough flavor of unmitigated yeast. Almost no malt backing and very little attempt at flavor hops. Absolutely unbalanced, fatiguing and crass. Perhaps some toasted malt notes, but no doubt they are just another aspect of the dryness and sour flavors. Would not have guessed amarillo, those don’t seem well-done here at all. Moderate carbonation, slightly aggressive at times. Yikes.

bottle thanks to bhensonb. poured a hazy orange with a white head. aroma was very well balanced between hop and malt. flavor was balanced between the hop citrus and caramel malt also. body was medium with a soft feel. an excellent IPA in my opinion.
