A real, full-on IPA. Very hoppy, and a very thick head. Really really malty as well. A little less carbonated as usual, which is probably why the head seemed thick. Had the 5X IPA on tap at The Harbour Public House on Bainbridge Island (across the ferry from Seattle).

22 oz bomber. Tasted on 7/9/14. Bottle from Total Wine Tampa, FL. The beer pours to a medium golden color with a very thick white head. The aroma has pine, very grassy& some Carmel notes. The taste has a very mild grassy taste with a mild hop & & very little bitterness. It finishes dry with very little aftertaste. Overall a very generic ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2050) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from total wine. Pours hazy amber with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has pine, a lot of caramel, light citrus. The taste is pretty bitter but had a strange balance. It’s okay.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a murky copper with a thick off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of citrus with some ash notes. Bitter finish.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Draft. Pours on the lighter side with some floral hoppiness in the aroma. Moderately-hopped with little noticable alcohol. Not bad.

Stizz19 (58) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a murky yellow/tan color with a huge foamy head. Smells of citruis, earthhy tones and hop. Taste is earthy pine and slightly orange and other citruis fruits. A bit too carbonated in my opinion. Not a great IPA but it's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (1593) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
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.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2014
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 doesn’t take long to forget about descriptors… this is a star. Enjoyed immensely and for $3.79/bomber it’s arguably the best IPA for your dollar in the 22oz format.

harrymel (1477) - 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
