concretebeer (17) - Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2010
A decent enough IPA. But, as a Dogfish Head IPA definitely a let down. Their standard run if IPAs is better. It tastes overly dry hopped. The hop flavor is good, but not enough bitterness to match it.

CObiased (280) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Bomber - pours a clear brilliant golden orange with a thick, fluffy off white head. The aroma reminds me more of an English IPA with hops and malt coming thru. Nice fruity hop flavor blends well with the light caramel and fruity malts. A little boozy. Not bad, different

hman43 (1055) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2016
It pours gold with an off white head. This is a bit hazy overall. There are aromas of pine, floral, pineapple, and some bread. There is an initial sweet flavor with citrus, floral, pineapple, pine, and bread. It is moderately bitter, with a moderate body and some alcohol warming. Overall for the ABV it is a fairly easy drinking hop driven IPA.

Ernest (7243) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of black tea, graham cracker, scorched honey, lemon zest. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Pretty good flavor balance and mouthfeel for the style, but the aroma is meek and somewhat odd (but thankfully not the usual raw/green hop bomb that most in this style are). Ok but not terribly enjoyable.

Leafs93 (2069) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus - grapefruit, floral, biscuit and pine. Taste is bitters with some tartness. Smooth with a quick dry finish. Overall a very enjoyable IPA

TEJA (2193) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle from the 2016 release. Nice light beige head. Light opaque golden color. Good hop aroma. Medium hoppy taste and a big malty caramell taste. Balanced bitterness.

mvp (227) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Good aroma. Nice copper color with a white frothy head. The palate seemed kind of thin. It was bitter but also dry and not that well balanced. I’m a little disappointed. hopping for a bit more.

ABUSEDGOAT (2554) - California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Slightly hazy amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is reminiscent of 90 minute IPA. Maltier with notes of grapefruit, citrus, pine. Medium bodied, semi chewy mouthfeel with caramel sweetness and PNW flavors.

swesson (358) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2016
From a bomber. Pours a light gold and makes a sudsy, big macro beer head with a bit of lacing down the glass. Aroma is of corn, floral, Pilsner, and a bit of hops. Tastes of biscuit, caramel, and lightly hopped. Surprisingly high abv for the taste. It's a good beer, but a bit too much macro beer taste for my liking even though I'm giving it a good grade. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b79turner (252) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2016
2016 release, golden pour with a white light fluffy head. Nose is floral, Belgian spices, very light and mild. Taste is similar, lightly carbonated. This is a nice beer that doesn't show it's 9% ABV. I would prefer the 90 minute IPA any day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
