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.

355 ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe
Bottled January 2015 :( - Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, grapefruit, citrus, lemon, herbal and fruity notes. Taste is crisp, hoppy and resinous with some grass, grapefruit, citrus and lemon. Finish is sweetish, piney and resinous with loads of citrus, grapefruit and lemon. Pretty generic but balanced and surprisingly tasty despite the bottle is not very fresh.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma with fruity hints of mango and peach, a herbal touch. Taste is bitter hoppy, hints of mango and peach, a slightly mineral and chalky touch. Not a gamete of the world-wide IPA dissemination.
