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.

Grapefruit and lemon peel bouquet. Clear golden, medium yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but with the hops less prevalent and with a light maltiness to balance it out. Not bitter and barely an IPA, but pretty nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is hoppy and somewhat yeasty - not strong, but still promising. It pours a clear yellow amber with a fluffy white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is strongly hoppy with hints of grapefruit and evergreen. Texture is smooth with a lively tingle that persists in the mouth after the brewski has headed downstairs.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured orange with a white head. The nose consisted of herbs, reefer, floral, hops, and vegetables. A very earthy, vegetable-like IPA. The hops weren’t resinous or alpha-ish bitter. Just earthy, spicy and floral. Some biscuit grains and malts to create a subtle sweetness. With a dry, earthy, grassy finish.

Bomber - clear copper pour. Aroma of grass, lemon and citrus hops. Taste of caramel roasted malts and slightly acid hop bite. Finishes up a tacky bitter sweet. Ok - not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours hazy light orange, kinda like the label actually! fair white head. Nose is sweet fruity hops, kinda like fruit cocktail. Flavor is assertive hop bitterness, cantalope, and grass, and some rubbing alcohol notes. Medium chewy body. Linger earthy bitter finish. Decent, especially for a fair price.
