COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an homage to the travels of so many people that came to the US for a better future. A place where with hard work you can have a few bucks to spare for this really great brew! Brewed with four different types of hops all with different citric notes; Mandarin, Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime all complement each other to create a citric bomb!

shorlin (719) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Appearance is a cloudy amber orange. Aroma is very fruity. Can I smell four different citric notes? No, but they are probably in there. Taste is very light. I’m not really impressed. Palate is very very dry. It’s OK, but taste fails.

Elaborada con malta a base unica y cantidades generosas de lupulo, esta IPA Mexicana consiste en 4 diferentes tipos de lupulo dejando un amargor demasiado notable a frutos cítricos (mandarina, limón, toronja y lima) su color es ligero y el cuerpo lo suficientemente completo para una IPA de muy alta calidad, Cheers!

Chudwick (2478) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2013
bomber - pours pale amber/orange with offwhite head. Nose is citrus and caramel. Flavor adds grapefruit and grass. Not that bitter, even after a Miller Lite. ABV is well hidden. Can’t help but think that the beer description is satirical and biting, unless the translator was unaware that Estados Unidos in Mexico refers to Mexico and not ’murica.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Earth and malt aroma with light grapefruit and light pine. Pine and caramel flavor with grapefruit. Medium bodied. OK bitterness. Caramel and pine linger with grapefruit.

patxa (204) - MEXICO - JUN 24, 2013
Amarga, aroma a tierra y maltas, buen y duradero paladar, con sabores a lima en el retrogusto, sedosa en la boca, con espuma débil y débil carbonación. Sin sabores alcohólicos, buena IPA de este lado de la frontera.

Lowenbrau (2676) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2013
355 ml bottle. Some sweet and hoppy aromas. Pours hazy dark gold, with nice white head, persistent, poor lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is citrus, some caramel, malty. Quite a lot of body for such a light taste beer, more or less balanced. Inusual, enjoyable.

Bomber. Not great but not a drain pour either. Darker gold pour with some head. Nose and taste misty of bittering hops. Sweetness is not present. Very little malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

omhper (21411) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Bottled. Hazy pale amber, small head. Citric nose with some butter. Dryish with above medium body and well rounded firm malt. Distinct grapefruity hops, long bitter finish. Solid IPA from a solid brewery.

DuffMan (8043) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle, shared with Grippiris and Mike. Medium brassy golden colour. Aroma is quite floral with underlying malty sweetness. The palate carries a sweet biscuity malt but much of the floral aromatics in the nose are absent here, leading to a quick dry bitter end. After it warms a bit, a light perfuminess comes forward, lemongrass maybe, but overall this just doesn’t really shine.
