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!

patxa (194) - 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.

Clear medium yellow amber colour with a average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, butter notes, moderate hoppy, orange - citrus. Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, hoppy, frozen flavor, buttery notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130223]

Lowenbrau (2247) - 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 (19985) - 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 (7037) - 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.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Nice amber-orange hue with a decent head and lace. Somewhat toasted malts; caramel-toffee sweetness. Very fruity hops; I get lemon and grapefruit mostly. Bitterness in the finish is kind of stark, like a plant stem. Lingering elements of citrus rind.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Golden/Orange on the pour with a lemon and a slight sweet aroma. It goes down fairly smooth with lingering notes of lemon/orange flavors and to me, the hops don’t kick in until the very end.

maxwelldeux (3812) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very hazy darker amber color with a moderate white head and a lot of floaties in it. Smells like the hops have turned, as it’s off-puttingly bitter. Taste is much the same, as it seems just a little disappointingly old. Meh.
