2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An drop in the sea of American IPAs.
Sedimented golden. Nice foam. Tropical notions. Bready pale malts, not too much crystals.
Atrocious label. Strong citric bitterness blend with yeastiness. Simplicity. Rough edges.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 On tap at the brewery 11/27/07. Dark cloudy gold pour with no head. Nose is killed by the very cold temperature. Strong bittering taste that is very fresh with a smooth mouth. Not overly hoppy but easy drinking. Very nice IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from BeerandBlues2 - thanks Brad! Clear amber with a white head. Dense grapefruit nose, some orange and floral notes. Brisk grapefruit zest flavors followed by a malty cookie flavors. Some mild apricot and earth show through as it warms a bit. Excellent foamy white lacing. Crisp, clean citrus finish, mildly dry. Good stuff!

Word to beerandblues for sending this one. Definite c hop presence with grapefruit and citrus dominating the flavor. Pours a slightly thich but bright orange color with a big frothy white head. Big citrus and pine aroma. This could be passed off as a double it has such big flavor and aromas. Slight sweetness and nice malt to balance out all those hops. Very enjoyable if you are a hop head.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had this beer on 11/9/2004. Aroma is full of a fresh hop scent. Color is a deep hazy golden with very good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is smooth, hoppy and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a smooth feel and a hoppy flavor coming on. Finish comes on with a rich feel but a mild malt flavor and a bold hop flavor that turns to a strong bitterness. This is as close to a perfect IPA as I can remember ever having. It’s full of flavor at all points and yet is never overpowering.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper color with quick dying foam that has never heard of lacing. Lite hop aroma with lots of crystal malt notes. Fairly balanced flavor, not very hoppy for an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amberish in color, on the orange side, slightly hazy, large foamy off-white head, fairly sticky lacing.   Pale citrus
rind nose.   Perhaps a slight dash of pine.   Smooth pine and citrus rind on the tongue.   Minor astringency.   Tastes a bit
better than the aroma.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Drinks like a fairly standard IPA.   Not a lot of floral or hop
bitterness, or should I say the bitterness reminds me of an orange rind.   Decent, but wished it was a bit more floral and bright,
instead of citrus rind bitterness with a dash of astringency.   Average.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle via trade with Crosling! - Thanks Nick! - Pours amber with a big fluffy offwhite head. Aromas of grapefruit as well as a good dose of apricot. Flavor is grapefruit, but a little apricot and even some pineapple. Caramel flavor behind that. Fairly well balanced. Medium body and pretty smooth on the palate.. Pretty drinkable and not over the top like lots of IPAs tend to be these days.. I liked this one..
