COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed with our proprietary yeast Ė the same yeast weíve used since first brewing Harpoon Ale Ė and some interesting hop varieties. The combination of Pale, Rye, Caramel 60, Flaked Rye, and Vienna yield a complex malt body that stands up to the spiciness of the rye and the pronounced hop flavor. The rye also adds a reddish hue to the beer. The kettle additions of Centennial, Apollo, and Chinook, and the dry hop addition of Falconerís Flight add a multidimensional hop character.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bomber. Pours mildly hazy orange, with a creamy beige head. Aromas of sweet and spicy citrus and some dough. The flavor is sweet doughy malt, rye, citrus peel, and some tropical fruit. Smooth, crisp, and refreshing. A bit one-dimensional, but pleasant. [763]

dmac (4004) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bomber from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a golden orange, average fluffy white head. Aroma is odd with a good amount of spiceyness, wet bread and light vegetables. The body is fuller with strong carbonation and a harsh bitter finish. Flavor changes constantly as this beer warms. Super cold not much is detectable, cold itís not that good and upon warming a little bit more it becomes decent. lots of grapefruit rind, toast, bread crusts, super harsh citrus. This one needs to drank slightly warmer.

Good beer. Aroma is nice it hints to the sweet and bitter balance this IPA has.

Malty aroma with a light amount of hops. Cloudy orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitter beginning that fades in the finish.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Piney aroma resinous hops on the nose. Pours a pale golden blonde with a dense white head. Very spicy piney grassy upfront, the rye definitely compliments the hops and both very apparent. Finishes with sweet pine with a dry spicy rye finish. Excellent

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Decent sized light beige head of fine and dense bubbles. Light hops and grain notes in the aroma along with a hint of grapefruit and a bit of roasted malts. Color is a bright orange brown. Flavor is mild with a rather strong bitterness that lingers throughout the drink. More roasted malts and a definite presence from the rye. Dries the brew out and gives it a slight chalky and pasty mouthfeel. Very easy drinking and with very little alcohol presence. A pretty good IPA.

GT2 (8425) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is a clear, golden amber body with a dense, fluffy, buttermilk head. Good lacing. Looks the part of a solid IPA. The nose is orange candy and sugar. Taste is candy sweet with pancake batter and full buttery biscuit. Very rich mouthfeel with quenching maltiness and fullness like Kern River Just Outstanding IPA, but not nearly the IPA-gasm that Just Oustanding is. So...great aesthetics but lacking in the olfactory department.

Travlr (11810) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Draft at Paradiso Dupont. Cloudy golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of simple pine. Taste is pine! and light pumpernickel, dry finish. OK.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a nice, hazy gold/orange with frothy white head. Aroma of sharp pine and citrus with nice malt back bone. Flavor is much the same with obvious rye presence and a nice hoppy bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, good stuff!
