Bottle. Pours a very clear light amber color with very little of a white head on it. Nose is really strongly hoppy, in a really pleasant way. I get slight bits of floral elements in there, but a strong bit of grapefruit. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with some subtle fruity elements. Very drinkable and pleasant beer. Glad I picked this up.

A nice discovery while in Seattle this winter. Paired perfectly with Dungenes crab cakes and green curry mussels. A nice, well-hopped IPA. Not overwhelmingly bitter but not at all sweet/malty. Wish I could find a 6-pack in VT.

Bomber. Beautiful c hop profile aroma and flavor. A little bit of peppery spice finished off with some grapefruit citrus. Nice malt body with some caramel and candi sugar sweetness. Nice wafting citrus aroma. I’m kind of into this one.

Big thanks to Matt (mfavoino) for sending this guy my way. Bomber served in a Bell’s stemmed tulip.
A: Pours a chilled orange color with some a big foamy head forming on the pour. Great retention. It recedes slowly to a massively thick ring and leaves great, sticky webbing down the whole glass.
S: Nice tropical fruit bursts. Some pineapple and melon. Sweet doughy malts on the back end.
T: Nice pear, apple and mango flavors. There’s a little grass in the middle and the finish is cleansing sweetness from some cracker-like malts.
M: Medium to light bodied and a solid carbonation level makes this guy an easy drinker.
O: This was very, very solid and highly drinkable. I was stunned at the price point ($5.99) for this guy and would be frequently buy it if I had access. Great value beer.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hazy orange-gold body, thick creamy head. Aroma is sweet pine needles and grapefruit rind. Piney hops really kick you in the mouth, resinous anda lite spicy, ending with a minty note. Nice medium-sweet malts. Long bitterness. Awesome!

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest 2010. Light orange, very vibrant pour. Lemon candy on the nose. Sweet, a bit tart, resinous with plenty of citrus and funk. Nice, bitter hops on the finish. Really great given that it was brewed within a half mile of where we were sitting! RE-RATE 12/18/11: I like this brew more every time I have one. Not sure if the recipe has changed at all, but this one has a wonderfully pungent burst of hops on the nose, a lovely mouthfeel, and a flavor I’d never (ever) get tired of. This might be a new standard, and I love supporting the neighborhood brewery.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 I enjoyed this IPA. Copper in color. Lots of rising bubbles. Healthy head. Hoppy, inviting nose. Lightish and easy drinking, yet it has a real malt richness to it. Toasty and cracker-like with a mild toffee-accented sweetness. Hops are very floral and grassy, and they have a citric snap. Balancing bitterness. Solid IPA.
