PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky medium orange with a medium thick sticky white head. Aroma is fresh and floral with hints of spruce. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some white grape accents, a brief bit of citrusy goodness and some back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel is crisp, but not quite as thick and chewy as I would expect a Full Sail IPA to be.

portableparty (1953) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Pour is bright orange and clear with a nice soapy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is nice and fruity citrus, but is faint and clean. Taste is bitter and dirty grapefruit citrus and a well mixed malt. Palate is gritty a chaulky that finishes dry. I really liked this one and will buy some more.

Bottle @ Beer Revolution. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note and faint malty notes. The taste is very bitter, resiny and herbal hops with some green apple notes. Medium bodied.

wchesser (1241) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Nose opens up with warmth floral and malt. Cloudy orange gold. Very bitter finish...too much for my taste...grapefruit pith without any of the fruit or citrus notes. Ok but not likely to get again...wish I had gotten another bomber of Wreck the Halls...

nearbeer (3840) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2010
22 oz. Clear burnt orange with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is dirty butterscotch, lemon, resin, wood, and fresh apple. Flavor is soapy butterscotch, cabbage, dirty lemon and pine sawdust. Near medium body is a bit too fizzy, but well-balanced and lightly tingly. OK traditional, British-tasting IPA

notalush (4991) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bomber - lightly hazy straw color - bright, fruity aroma, with some biscuity malt and copious citric hop character - flavor is much the same - crisp, crackery malts, a bit of dry, mineral character - assertive hop bitterness at first compliments the malt base, but then gets a little too much in the long term - hops become quite spicy/peppery toward the finish - long-lingering, tongue curling bitterness overstays its welcome on the palate - some good things going on, but goes downhill near and through the finish.
