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 hopsí 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.

Bomber, again from a boxed win.Hazy orange color; creamy head, of which a thin layer is persistent. The aroma is mostly fruity (orange, grapefruit, grapefruit candies). smooth mouthfeel (too much carbonation); yeasty and fruity flavor; even if the very nice fruity profile is not too strong.

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bomber via Stefan! Concentrated floral hop aroma as soon as top is popped. Lots and lots of sticky lacing that re-forms after sipping in my Gahan House goblet. Collectively the hefty amount of malt does support the intensity of the hop register of twangy bitterness. Even so the body is surprisingly on the thinner side. At 7% (and you feel it) a bit more body would fill this critter out to a real meal.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Deep orange amber with a thick meringue of a head that never quits. Aroma has some toasty caramel and bitter grapefruit, some pine too. Balanced palate between the lightly toasty malts and the floral grapefruit hops. Not as bitter as some of the Pizza Port brews Iíve had this trip, but thatís not to say it lacks assertiveness. If anything, it enhances the drinkability of this beer. Very nice.

Pours copper orange with a one finger off white head which fades to some lacing. Aroma is floral citrus (grapefruit, orange, some pine, bready malts, and caramel malts. Taste is of resinous citrus (grapefruit and orange) pine, bready sweet malts, and caramel malts. has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel, resinous mouthfeel, and a semi dry, bitter, finish. overall, a pretty good IPA.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours honey root beer brown with some thick suds on top. Aroma is peppery orange peels and some high octane ethyl acetate. Medium bodied and very balanced. Flavors of roasty, bread crust and solventy bitterness. Finish is mellow with a lingering bitterness and hints of melon.

cpetrone84 (1372) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
pour is a cloudy copper orange with large bubbles in a light tan head. Nose is biscuit malt, rye and caramel with piney bitter hops behind. Taste follows suit but a more expressive hop sensation adds to the finish and short lingering bitterness along with a smooth body and soft carbonation make it fall down the throat quite easily. Also light notes of citric acid in back behind the cascading malt forefront.

Iphonephan (3196) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
On tap at mohawk bend LA. Pours a medium gold with a white head. Floral citrus aroma. Grapefruit zest - bitter but not overpowering. A nice IPA.

Hazy brownish orange pour. Thick offwhite head, half inch thick, lots of thick lacing on the glass. Typical piney citrus scent thatís a little grassy. Great medium body. Sharp citrus taste, mostly pine like and a bit salty. Finish is slightly dry and crisp, bright alcohol flavor as well.

pours a dirty golden color. Has an aroma of citrus and hops. Taste follows the aroma. Has strong notes of hops and citrus that remind me of a grapefruit. Leaves somes bitterness on the palate after the swallow. Overall, not to bad for an ipa.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle from Kasey! Pours deep orange and approaching amber. Head is medium but quickly fades to a film. Nose is floral and contains an abundance of spicy and citrus hops mild supporting malt and possibly caramel malt aroma. Flavor is medium citrus tones with floral, spicy, light resinous, and bitter fruit rind flavors again supported with some bready and light caramel malts. Finishes medium dry with some pronounced bitterness. Nice beer but if I were to complain would have asked for more intense hop aroma.
