bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bomber from Bottle Trek. Hazy red tinged amber color with minimal beige ring. Aroma seems to be hugely grapefruit, but there is a hint of malt. Medium body with rather creamy carbonation. It’s mostly hop over a little roasted caramel. Pretty much grapefruit rind with some floral aspects. Finish is pretty dry, but there’s still enough sugar to call it balanced - maybe. Pretty hoppy brew.

hopscotch (8549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Co-rated with scraff... This beer rocks! Very lightly hazy orange ale. The aroma is of sweat, caramel, light perfume, floral notes and wet leather. The flavor offers notes of caramelized pineapple, orange blossom honey and grapefruit rind. Thoughtfully bittered. Full-bodied with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Great stuff! Underrated!

22oz bottle. Poured a deeper amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit / citrus, and light caramel. Tasets of grapefruit and caramel. Sugray sweet with a light bitterness (a little too sweet for an IIPA). Light alcohol in the finish.
