I guess that where Iím at is that Iím not a fan of this, and I donít know that you could be, itís not a very good IPA and adding spices might just be that theyíre aware of this and are covering up

Lots of grapefruit on the nose didnt pick up the spices but I feel this beer wasnt very fresh. The color is clear pale yellow with moderate white head. The taste has some healthy bitterness but abruptly drops off to a dry finish. Very light bodied and easy to drink but not enough flavor to make it interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in color with a white head. Mild citrus, some hints of pine, and maybe floral notes. Coriander, pepper, and maybe some woody herbal notes. Thereís a decent amount of citrus peel to the flavor, but something is off about it. Coriander, pepper, and pine. Strong bitterness on the finish. Mild malt sweetness. Meh.

Light golden pour. Lemon lime aroma with a citrus and floral taste. Not the best west coast ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild with caramel, citrus and a touch of fresh coriander. The taste is somewhat piney with a touch of grapefruit and a bit of bitter coriander. The palate is somewhat uneven starting thin and building to a fuller conclusion. The finish is long and bitter. Overall--pretty good stuff.

Hoppy nose which is a little resiny. Beer has floaties in it which I am assuming is the additions of citrus fruit. Given these additions I would have expected something more sweeter in style but to me it bought a sourness to the beer which did not sit well with the hops (put simply - not balanced).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale orange. Bitter pine and fruit rind aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the bitter rind and pine notes. An interesting IPA, but nothing special

22oz bottle-thanks jtclockwork for sharing-pours hazy yellow with particles with a retaining white head. Aroma is lemon/lime, some wheat/light malt. Taste is lemon/lime, some wheat/light malt, quickly overtaken by biting hops. Drying finish.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is primarily resin. Med body. Flavor is like resin with some zest. Iím not sure citrus should count as spice - but? Thereís a fair amount of floral to go with the resin. Itís quite bitter. Bitter like citrus rind in fact. Very different.
