Fairly tame but enjoyable aroma, light golden slightly cloudy appearance. Great classic IPA taste, excellent hoppy bitterness and long sweet finish. Bubbly on the palate which to me is not particularly enjoyable. Overall, this is a good beer that lands on the same level as the best of the best in the IPA category.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle poured a golden orange amber in color with a one finger white head. aroma has grapefruit rind, pines, medium bitterness, caramel sweetness, resins, and a touch of orange skin on the end. mouth feel is medium for the style with low side carbonation and good coating. flavor gets a bit more bitterness going, pine, resins, bitter grapefruit skins, contrasting sweetness, and some heat on the finish. it packs a nice punch for a single and the hops are right in your face.

On tap at the Capital Alehouse is downtown Richmond, VA. The pour is a hazy dark red with a frothy dirty white head. Big piny grapefuit aroma with a bit of toasted bread. The flavor was like eating a fresh citrus salad topped with cooked brown sugar. Surprisingly full bodied with thick resiny feeling. Long bitter finish. World class stuff.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a copper color with a clean finish. Taste is slightly bitter, I expected more of a bite from an IPA. This beer has an alcohol aftertaste with a mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a decent IPA, that I was happy I tried.

Bottle bonus thanks to Richbeer (BA). Clear orange IPA pour, very little carbonation and a very rich bitter orange citrus aroma. Flavor is woody herbal hops, bitter orange, pine and finished rich and soapy on the palate. Solid IPA!

Bottle. Can’t remember the last time I bought a six pack, but this was deserved it. Amber pour with some tan head. Aroma of fruity, pine and resins. Flavor grapefruit, citrus and pine hop notes. Nice, could drink this all day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from BOLTZ7555. Thanks Jason! This pours an amber-orange color with a thick off-white head. Lacing pretty much all the way down the glass. Grapefruit, pine, caramel, a little lemon and herbs in the aroma. The flavor consists of sweet caramel malts, bitter resiny hops, along with soapy, sandy and herbal notes. Plenty of bitterness but still a little on the sweet side with a hefty dose of the malt picked up. Could be a little more dry. Definitely a good IPA here.

The aroma is syrup malt with boozy notes. The appearance is clear honey amber with a decent white head on top. The delicious flavor settles on the palate with the hops and almost a sweet honey flavor, but very subtle.
