Nice aroma of fresh hops with citrusy overtones. Nice orange/gold apprearence. Hops, with citrus and spic are first in taste..but then quickly followed by sweet malt. Finishess wtih very mild bitterness...and finishes quickly...not much lingering aftertaste. Very dinkable IPA for those not looking for too much hoppy/bitter flavor....hard core hop heads will be disapointed.

Bought bomber for $4.99. Itís a little better on tap but itís close. Good representation of an English style IPA and a nice change of pace. Malty, mild hop aroma and bitterness. Definitely can be a session ale. Goes well with savory comfort foods. Not as staple in my fridge but itís good value when itís on sale.

Excellent beer. It is not my favorite, or even close. It is just a good beer to sit down and drink with some friends. You donít covert this beer, you just drink it. You enjoy it. Not quite a session beer, but itís good for any occasion.

Deep golden with a white head - Malt and some hops in the aroma - Nice malt to support a nice hop profile with some fruity notes and some bitterness - the hops goes into a light bitter finish - This was nice

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Fairly clean and floral ipa. not bad, but definitely lacking in depth. not sure of the age, seemed relatively fresh and pretty balanced if a little light in the hop department for an ipa."

Voodoo (331) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a clear, deep golden color with a thin white head which disappears quickly......aroma is pine, citrus.......taste is bready maltiness, citrus, slight pine......not over the top but a solid drinkable IPA. Quite refreshing in these days of excesses.
