3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy opaque dark amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of big resinous hops, truckloads of tropical fruits, especially tangerine, and big caramel malt. Flavour brings out shitloads of bitter resinous hops, loads of oranges, and a big caramel malt backbone. Finishes dry and bitter, but also with some residual sugars. The malt profile is perhaps too prominent for my tastes; however, this is still a well-made big fat juicy IPA. Solid, but not my thing.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer pours honey golden and is hazy. A fluffy off white head is nice and leaves sticky lacing. I smell pine and caramel. Pine and floral hops are tasted and they leave a long lasting dry bitterness for an after taste. But soon that after taste fades and it becomes very clean. I also taste yeast and pale malts. Fruit is tasted and it is both citrus and tropical. Despite all of the hop notes this is tilted toward sweetness and the malts are in front. This is an interesting beer. It is very tasty but also very subtle. Plenty of good stuff to satisfy the serious beer geek but not so much to put off the novice.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale golden/orange with a thick forming white head. This hits the spot as a west coast IPA. Floral, vibrant, pine-like and citrus hops with a clean balance. Lots of hop flavor without being too bitter, and just the right amount of malt without coming off as too bready and grainy. This is worth revisiting for those special IPA craving. I’m hoping for six packs.

Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this one. Pours hazy golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruits, modestly sweet malt, orange, pineapple and a bit of pine. It has a medium husky rough body with gentle abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts with pine, grapefruit zest, dry malt and mild alcohol. The finish is dry, hoppy, resiny and has lots of grapefruit zest. Really nicely made IPA.
