On tap at Garage 39. Light copper color, medium body. Piney nose but resin, pine, grassy, subtle hoppy goodness in terms of taste. Well done.

Tap at dig beer baR. Pleasant moderate citrus nose with a sourish tinge. Clean light copper/orange color. Solid citrusy initial / caramel and more bitterness, with an added aspect of tree bark or herbs / finish is clean and lightly bitter. Medium-heavy body. Very good, slightly hop-heavy stuff.

Bottle: Pours orange amber with a mountain of beige head. Terrific retention and lacing. Some florals and caramel in the nose, resin and citrus. Pungent. Flavors come together seamlessly and it doesnít take long to forget about descriptorsÖ this is a star. Enjoyed immensely and for $3.79/bomber itís arguably the best IPA for your dollar in the 22oz format.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled: unk Dark amber with a finger of thick off whites, which leave really thick lace billows. Nose of malts, english malts and some hints of grassy, soapy and minty hops. Almost also has a slight, slight snus note. Tastes like malt with some bittering and spleny of floral and soapy hops. Malts are brutally oxidized with cardboard strait up in a mutha. Also has a slight seltzer tone and hollow character. Medium bodied with moderately hi carb. This beer fails. Serving type: bottle 05-07-2012

Moderately cloudy orange. Whoa nilly! This is a hoppy yet perfectly balanced brew. Bitter and Just the right amount of malt balance. Iíve had a lot of ipaís since Iíve been in WA and this one def takes the cake! Nice bitter hop punch, but not overly bitter. Awesome! My new favorite Ipa! I just realized there is nothing bad I can say about this brew..Holy crap, itís a fiver.

Beerathon (960) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2013
The head on this is ridiculous- big and fluffy with lacing. Smell is of grass, pine, and slight citrus. Taste is a bit earthy and the typical hop/malt balance of an IPA. Decent.

Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a clear light orange color with a big fluffy head that fades normally but still lingers at the end. Leaves nice chunky lacing. Aroma is perfumy hops, grass, lemons, grapes, oranges, grapefruit, and light pine. Taste is sugary sweet up front. Lemon, grapes, citrus fruit. Mild bitterness. Has a very dry, wine-like finish with grape skins. Medium body. Mouthfeel is very fizzy and a little oily. Aroma was pretty good but not a fan of the taste or finish.

I donít like IPAs, but as far as the style goes, this is one of the better IPAs Iíve tried.
