Good stuff. Tried at Yard House on tap. Good stuff, very hoppy clean malts with a hint of sweetness. Good amounts of hops, and probably nice dry hop treatment. Good overall profile blended well. NW hops keeps this one close to your lips.

glennmastrange (2226) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle. Moderate roasted aroma for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and citrus peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast with pepper and faint dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, creamy, oof-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation and a lightly drying finish. Everything an IPA is supposed to have is in this beer.

haddon90 (1440) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with an OK lacing head. Deep, hoppy aroma. Some grapefruit in the background. Nice, wet, hoppy taste. Not too overpowering. Tight, tangy hit on the palate. Dry finish. Pretty decent iPA.

markwise (4429) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bomber graciously shared at the last Tampa crew tasting. Thanks to the kind soul who shared it. Pours a somewhat hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is light malt with big hops. Seriously. Mild caramel followed with big pine and light citrus. Flavor is similar- hop assault. West Coast-style IPA. Medium in body and overall pretty good.

JohnnyJ (4269) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Draft. Clear amber pour, off white head. Bitter hops, grassy, sweet caramel malt, light citrus, and a bit metallic. I don’t like it too much, rather sweet and abrasively bitter.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Great, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a super thick, eight centimetre tall tan head - a bit too much carbonation in this one! Aroma of light grass, herbal notes, pine and a touch of pineapple - some malt as well. Medium-bodied; Metallic flavour at first with a herbal, earthy grassy malt and hop characteristic then showing some alcohol and bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows more alcohol, malt and earth than the style usually has, and perhaps quite a bit less hops than usual as well - especially for a West Coast IPA. Overall, an interesting take (more earthy/malty) on an IPA, but not a great one considering the options on the West Coast. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo in San Francisco (Geary Blvd), California on 14-January-2012 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-March-2012.

julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Tasted at Total Wine tasting. Third favorite of four. A decent amount of citrus but had a nice grapefruit taste that balanced and sweetened it up a bit.

Sledutah (4315) - Utah, USA - FEB 2, 2012
22oz bottle (the same label design as pictured but it is a black label w/grey & green lettering and says Reno, Nevada. 8% abv) from Lee’s discount liquors
Appearance: Pours clear amber with a huge foamy white head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Malts, caramel, pine and biscuity
Taste: Toasted malts, pine, bready with a bitter citrus (lemon) finish
A nice easy drinking IPA, well balanced.
