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.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy 3 finger off-white head. Aromas of roast caramel and resin. Med body. Flavor is harsh roast malt with some resin, and arguably a bit of citrus. It’s hard to decide: resin or citrus. Seems like both. Definitely bitter, and with time it seems a bit floral. This is an incredibly delicious beer. Just excellent.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2011
A: The pour is a vibrant orange color with a big head that is just slightly off-white. S: An incredibly dank hop aroma to this beer. Big citrus and pine notes with a slight herbal quality to it. A mild malt sweetness consisting primarily of bread. T: The flavor is somewhat sweet and does not have quite as big of a hop punch as the nose. Some citrus and fruit hop notes and a solid pine character which gives the beer a strong bitterness. M: Medium in body body and carbonation. O: Good but not great, unfortunately. With some fine tuning, though, I think this one has potential.

Golden/orange pour. Resin, grapefruit peel, and floral hops on the nose. Flavor is malty enough but has some really good citrus hops. Finishes a bit bitter with almost a yeasty flavor.

Growler… Hazy orange ale with a small, white head. Fruity, floral aroma – pineapple, mango and peach stand out. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Heavily bitter and fruity. Finishes crisply and heavily bitter. Kudos to DuffManSW for floating the growler my way!
