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.

Bomber from the CBX. Pours a cloudy bright orange with a white head. The aroma is not super strong like I prefer my IPAís, but it is clean and hoppy. Notes of lemons, grass and cough drops. The flavor is bright, zesty and non-aggressive. There is juicy citrus all over. Itís a refreshing IPA and a little different than what Iíd expect from a west coast brewer.

jake65 (2730) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle: Pours golden with a modest beige head and bits of sticky lacing. Nose is mostly floral with some citrus and grapefruit. Wet mouthful reveals a bit more of the grapefruit and a nice floral bitterness. Lingering finish is bitter, but lightly sweet. Basic and drinkable.

jrob21 (2677) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Crisp and refreshing but a little light on the hops. Grass and herbal notes. Touch of grapefruit on the finish. Some toasty bread malts give this a little more of a unique malt body.

IndianaRed (2606) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle, at Brewforia, pours a hazy dingy orange with a small sandy colored head. Faint fruity aroma. Peaches and apples. Dry lively crisp palatte. Not sure how this qualifia as an IPA. The bitterness is there...though I canít find all 70 IBUs that Full Sail claims. ECM more lacking is the hop flavor. Not un pleasent, just not hoppy. I continue to be inderwelmed by their "sun" series in general.

Beergeek23322 (2481) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
July 2010. Bottle. Good hop balance, caramel, pine and floral notes. Amber color with a white head. Somewhat generic IPA, but I kinda like it.

Pours clear orange with a foamy white head that fades. Aroma of mostly grain and some citrus rind. Taste has lots of grainy malt also with a mild hop bitterness.
