COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma Coma is our summer seasonal India Pale Ale. We’ve brewed it annually since 2009 for a local IPA festival, where it was selected one of the top three beers in the competition. The malt bill consists of almost all 2-row barley malt, with a touch of Caramalt for body - leaving you with a delightfully hop-forward experience. Generous amounts of Cascade, Chinook, CTZ & Citra hops create the citrus, pine, and floral notes. Breathe ’Em in and enjoy!

Bendrixian (1130) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, - JAN 28, 2013
Mostly clear golden colour with a lively head. Muted aroma but sports a hoppy pine cone profile and exotic peach note. Hoppy taste profile, almost medium bodied but lacks any real finish or jump. filtered, reduced, no malts. i’m not as impressed as I should have been.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear gold body that supports a near white head. The aroma offers up tangerine and clementine citrus hops that are very inviting and bordered thinly by a bit of sweet malts and faint spicy dankness. The taste comes across spicy and dank with onions as well as wedges of tangerine and clementine citrus hoppy goodness. This offers up easy drinking deliciousness with well balanced flavor and bitter hops. I could stand here in line and drink this until they kick me out.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are full of great IPA notes. I get a lot of orange citrus as well as some pine. There is a good bit of bitterness to go with the big-time hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Everything goes together nicely in this excellent beer.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Oh man...what a friggin delicious and aromatic hop showcase this is. Candied orange peel and grapefruit sweet. Piney. Floral. Shows a little alcohol at first but not as it warms. Really nice bittersweet finish. One of the better single iPas out there, and unfortunately priced like it."

Prufrockstar (1017) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft at whole foods. Pours hazy gold with offwhite head, good lacing. Overwhelmingly sweet aroma: cotton candy, citrus, flowers and honey. Taste: moderately sweet with bitter finish. Lasting copper finish. Palate: medium+ body, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall: sweet candied citrus ipa. I suppose the name is appropriate, but doesn’t induce the type of coma they were intending.

Very nice IPA. Clean and crisp

kathouse (1022) - Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Thick white foam sits on a golden color body. Citrus and piney hop aroma leads into a moderate bitterness. Hop flavor is excellent and light malt fills in the palate. Quite good.

Bule (782) - California, USA - AUG 21, 2014
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a clear yellow amber color with a bit of head. Mild hop flavors and a little citrusy.

kevinsenn (1092) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of peach, resin, and pine. Nice aroma, but not coma-inducing. Bitter-all-way-through taste with pine and citrus. Dry bitter finish. Feels like some sweetness is missing to balance it out. Medium slightly thin body.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2014
draft @ the source. Smells like citrus peel, grapefruit, mango then floral hops. Flavor is lightly juicy with the citrus. Notes of honey and grain through the center. The finish displays the floral hops just like the aroma. Dry texture with a medium body. Carbonation give a light tingle. Overall pretty nice.

HonusWagner (1422) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Nose is somewhat weak but has nice bits of tropical fruitiness and a hint of citrus. Flavors are more pronounced, particularly a solid note of maybe papaya or dried mango. Tasty stuff though not earthshattering.
