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.

Sampled on 8/20/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet, orange and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity, caramel and sweet, lot of orange and apricot flavors. Hops are citrusy and orange, a touch floral and earthy as well. A medium bitter IPA. Nice carbonation. The hop bitterness tends to linger throughout this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Amber pour with a short, off-white head. Hoppy and spicy nose with light pine and citrus and an herbal hoppiness. Taste is ripe fruit, sweet malt, caramel, citrus, spicy hops and herbal notes. Body is medium and chewy with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more herbal and spicy hops, citrus, light pine, sweet malt, candy, fruit notes, and caramel.

Thanks to Hayduke for this one. Shared via Facebook chat with Ron’s brother Rick. Pour is hazy effervescent golden brown. A small white head. Aroma is soft with tart hops and a hint of spice. Flavor begins with pink grapefruit which is a new taste for me. VERY bitter on the front. After a bit of warming that subsided somewhat and some tangerine and other citrus fruit showed. There was very little sweetness, especially at first. The tangerine helped but balance was never achieved. There was a unique hop mixture used which made for a fun beer to sample.

22oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Aroma – Big hop aroma with a nice balanced malt.
Appearance – Amber in color, clear, with a thin head.
Flavor – This was filled with fruity hops flavor. The malts where subtle this was a big IPA.
Palate – Dry finish with a Nice Mouthfeel.
Overall – Very nice IPA. Loved it after mowing the lawn.

notalush (4748) - 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.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Super crisp, clear orange coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of fresh hops, alcohol, malt, light apricots and TONS of metal and blood - not very nice smelling. Medium-bodied; Very assertive metal and strong alcohol flavours showing up front with some hops afterwards and a touch of dry bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of metal, funky malt finishes and a bunch of bitter raisin/apricot flavours. Overall, not so great - the bitterness and off tastes override the hoppiness and the fruit that is picked up between the funky smells and the lingering aftertaste. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 01-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 02-September-2010.

22oz bottle pours a transparent bright orange with a thin white head. Nose is spicy, oranges, light soap, floral, perfume. Flavor is sweet, oranges, malts, caramel, citrus zest. Medium bodied and lightly sweet. Kind of blah.

A bit of hops in the aroma. Looks nice. This isn’t too balanced at all. The hops are bitter but also metallic. Disappointed with this one.

Bomber. Poured a golden amber color with a foamy, slightly off-white head. Aroma was floral hops, slightly sweet malts. Flavor was bitter, hoppy, malty, a well balanced beer rounded off with a nice citrus character.
