smells of mashed up paper and lumber. tastes much better. nice bite but doesn’t overwhelm the more pleasant lightness of being of the malts.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opened the bottle and poured a dark straw liquid with an off-white head about a finger deep. The aroma is bright grapefruit and skunky pine and pulling on the brew brings a flavor equal to the brew. The palate is bitter, flat and boring, the carbonation doing nothing to accentuate any of the aroma, and it seems to be dragging the flavor through, almost kicking and screaming.
Not a fan, but it’s drinkable really, but only if I didn’t have another choice.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of bitter hops, lots of caramel and pale malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not good.

1.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
One of the few IPAs that I have tried that I really did not like. There was an odd finish to the beer that I could not nail down. I would not buy this again.

Bomber from Walmart. Fresh batch @ 7.1%. Very light amber in color. Nose is somewhat light on the hops, with a sweet fruitiness dominating. Grapefruit peel up front, along with a decent amount of sweetness. Pretty well balanced maltiness. Finish is pretty much grapefruit peel. Very drinkable and well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The world is full of IPAs, full of dull IPAs indistinguishable from each other. It makes you want to even stop trying. Then something actually decent comes along when you quit looking. This beer was one of those. Picked up this beer just because it was a single in a local grocery store. Poured it half thinking it would soon be poured down the drain. But it was actually good, fun, something I liked and happy to have enjoyed. 12oz bottle. Golden color. Not a lot of lacing. Lemon hops, lemony tea biscuits, ad a slightly sweet raisin bread character. A nice mix of bright lemony hops and a slightly sweet maltiness. Neither too much, well balanced.

Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, orange pith, hops, touch of pine, grassy notes. Medium bodied with a little balls, fone carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Decent enough IPA.
