12oz bottle. Pours slightly cloudy, medium copper with a creamy white head. I light lace in the glass that dissipated quickly. Aroma is bitter citrus and piney. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma. It finishes with a bitter malt flavor that leaves an antiseptic taste on my tongue.

Bomber. Pours a copper toned body with a mostly white head. No enough hops here, malty body with a faint grapefruit, light pine and a hint of citrus in the finish. Medium body, okay as a pub ale but nothing special. Hop up your IPA!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 7/12/2010. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is biscuty malts and grapefruity hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. A malty IPA, yet there is a nice citrusy hop bite. Good carbonation. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, dry and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice crisp copper coloured body with a thick tan head. Aroma of strong hops, a lot of malt, some alcohol and a bit more hops - very nicely balanced and relatively strong for the style. Medium-bodied; Deep pungent hop flavours show through at first with a deep cascade taste and a nice pungent full-bodied and full of malt finish. Aftertaste is complex with the alcohol, pine, hops, flowers and some malt very noticeable. Overall, a pretty nice IPA with a lot of good flavours and very strong in the hops - shows well. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Ralph’s in Los Angeles, California for US$3.99 sampled just outside the supermarket on the walk to LAX on 03-July-2011.

Draft at brewpub. Light golden amber pour, white head. Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor is more mutted and not as interesting, some grainy malt, citrus and hops.
