gold pour, about a finger of white head. Good carbonation, medium body, resiny. Aroma is ostly lighter citrus fruit. Lemon peel andgrapefruit up front, dry pine needles, bitter. A bit one-dimensional but a pretty good offering for those who like their IPAís bitter.

Draft at the Brew Pub. Itís called Hop Bomb and itís not a IPA? The 8.8% ABV helped us to lose touch with reality. Good hop aroma, flavor.

draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Medium, somewhat shimmering copper pour. Pretty substantial piney hop aroma, big flavor with light chemical taste in finish. A tad boozy but overall a real nice hopped up offering from EBC

tap at coles. Copper body, white head. Nose is a bit catty with caramel, spicy & piney with moderate alcohol. Flavor is pine, a huge caramel last hit (think dfh 90 min) that odd fruity strawberry bubblegum flavor I sometimes get from Simcoe. There is a very nice but not overwhelming bitterness that lingers with nice semi-ripe tropical fruit. Good stuff!
