Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours a clear quite nice orange color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, oranges and tea. The flavor is lots of soft late boil hops, a bit of bitter orange peel, lemons. Very flavorful. The citra stands out. Solid.

Jhackmeister (12) - Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Medium orange color with a strong, bright white head and better than average lacing. The aroma is strong oranges and tangerines with a whiff of pine and vanilla. Slightly sweet crystal malt on the front of the palate with bright tropical fruit hops in the middle without being bitter. The finish is dry and clean. Mouthfeel is creamy without being too heavy. This is a strong west coast IPA but unique enough to stand out from the crowd. Overall, a nice change of pace from bitter hop bombs.

Transfer from BA review on 6-23-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance –The beer pours a light golden color with a huge and rocky white head. The head sits around for quite some time before fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – A sweet citrus fruit aroma of tangerine is heaviest in the nose. With it comes other citrus of a grapefruit hop as well as a little bit of hoppiness of a pine aroma. Some other light fruit aromas mingle with the citrus, with notes of apricot and peach present as well. All in all it is a sweeter and citrusy hopped smell. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth citrus and tropical fruit flavor upfront. The flavors of sweet tangerine, pineapple and mango mingle with hop of a grapefruit variety. As the flavor advances some other hop flavors of a pine nature begin coming to the tongue taking away from the sweet ever so slightly. These flavors largely take the taste to its end where a crisp and refreshing citrus hopped taste is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are rather nice for the blend of hop and fruit and make for a more refreshing and easy drinking brew. Overall – A rather tasty IPA with a nice easy going style. It’s a good one for a summer evening while sitting, chatting and relaxing with friends.

Pours a hazy golden in color with ample white head. Strong juicy citrus aroma with hints of orange and pineapple. Tropical fruit flavors come through with a nice balanced malt character. Excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (2029) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Seemed mellow in comparison to the double we had before, but this is actually a fairly aggressive (but still well balanced) iPa. Solid citrus nose, orange peel and grapefruit with a little pine sap in the finish. Easy drinking but full of flavor and a good nose."

A dark golden amber, good lacing around the glass. Grass, a light fruity resin and pine in the aroma, huge fresh hops. Huge. The light caramel malt sweetness, sticky and median. The carbonation is about average. Great beer.

Clear golden color, moderate white head. Light grapefruit, pine, grass, and caramel malt. A little sweetness up front and then solid resinous bitterness. Smooth, light to medium bodied, and a bit oily. Quite bitter in the finish

Draft at pony bar HK. Pours an amber body with one finger white head. Aroma is pine and citrus hop with some light malty character. Mouthfeel is ok but you get more of an ashy, grainy flavor that takes away from the rest of the flavors.
