Cybercat (3278) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pours a clear, slightly reddish amber, bit of an off-white head. Aroma is decidedly hoppy with a grapefruit underpinning. Strongly hoppy flavor has more than a hint of sour citrus, more orange than grapefruit, and just a touch of honey sweetness. Lively texture is on the viscous side and leaves behind a pleasant and persistent tingle. Hop to it.

kayres (457) - , Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Crystal clear orange with a thick off white head. Kind of dull citrusy aroma. Starts with a harsh but dull hop bite. Medium bodied, smooth. Fairly well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Poured orange with a creamy off-white head. Nice hop/malt blend aroma. The flavor found caramel with a citrus backing. Medium body and a mild bitterness.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
From tap at brewery. Poured orange in color with small head that lingered. Hop aroma was all citrus and no pine. Taste was balanced between the hops and caramel malt.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Beer #17 Asheville trip. Medium orange, had a slight head. Aroma citric and slightly floral hop. Flavor was a dead on match, with enough malt backbone to keep it together. They also had a dry-hopped cask version of it that had just been tapped - very similar, but the green hop flavors of the dry hopping really came through in the cask version, almost like a Randall. A well done IPA, although for me it wasn’t quite my favorite hop profile.

jhliesen (719) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bomber-what a nice surprise as I never came across the brew. Pours a dark orange with a small, white head. Large citrus and hoppy aroma. The taste was similar. Nice grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Really good stuff. Brewery, 4.00.

Pours a amber orange with a great citrus hop aroma. Great balance and good taste. Good solid IPA

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bomber. Hazy, amber body. Frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Long-lasting bitterness. Taste of raw grain, alpha acids. Leafy hops. Not a favorite combination, but this works better than most like this. Good balance, but couldn’t drink more than one glass.

GT2 (8379) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
651mL. Pours a clear orange with ivory foam. Good lacing. Nose is orange candy and cheddar. Taste is bitter, nutty, metallic, sharp Brasil nut. Quite bitter. Palate is thicker, very bitter, spicy. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
