COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitter and bold. This single hop american style IPA features 100 percent Columbus Hops for an intense citrus, floral and spicy aroma and flavor. Five different malts form the rich backbone that balances the hops’ 77 IBUs. The resinous mouthfeel is followed by a clean, dry hopped finish that refreshes and satisfies. Additional Information: Delve into this beer and you are going to see the complexities that this highly hopped beer has to offer. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and flower essences are just a few flavors/aromas you are sure to find.

Pours a hazy orange with a 1.5 finger head. Nice floral and citrus notes on the nose. Flavor matches aroma, and a bit of malty sweetness. Good IPA if you aren’t into overly bitter beers.

Draft. Cloudy dark amber. Small white head. Medium body. Pretty high bitterness. Pretty densely hopped. Resin. Rind. Kinda overboard, not super drinkable.

Flaske: Orangerød diset med et flot skumhoved. Duft af Lagunitas skulle jeg til at sige, men det er det jo ikke. Smagen sidder i skabet for en IPA. Lækker øl.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a white head. Sweet malty base, with some fruity citric hops and moderate bitterness. Balanced and drinkable, but nothing too special.

bomber pours orange amber, thin off white head whom’s lacing completely covers my cheater pint. Nose is subtle of citrus, some malt. Taste begins with light gentle malt sweetness. This is lightly washed away by some bitterness, oranges, tangerine. body is light to medium. Overall all pretty decent, a nice change of pace from some of the normal face melting bitter bombs.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bold and zingy IPA with snappy citrus and a grassy bitterness. More malt-forward (and sticky) than I like, but it did help to balance out the aggressive hops.

22 oz bomber with no sell by date, which bums me out. i do not understand why a brewer of an IPA this good would not put a bottled on or a sell by date. This is especially important because I thought the bomber I had was past its prime. I still noticed a nice clear citrusy hop flavor, but there is a slightly "off" earthy, cheesy note that I believe indicates the bottle sat around too long. I would love to travel to the brewery and have this on tap. I will re-rate if i can.

Great IPA! IPA’s are so prevalent now it’s like they are just regular beer now. This one is pretty awesome. Uber clear, beautifully bright, ruddy copper pour. Gigantic seafoam head with exquisite lacing. Fresh tangerines and caramel malt are dominant in the aroma. Nice nuances of grapefruit and lime zest also show up in the appropriately bitter flavor. Definitely hops forward, but skillfully balanced by plenty of malty goodness. Medium body, great carb, superb mouthfeel, and a wonderfully dry finish. I am reminded of a honey-glazed orange/grapefruit upside-down cake garnished with lime leaves. Fantastic IPA.
