This is one amazing IPA made with six different malt and four different hops including Amarillo and Simcoe. A must try. You will not be disappointed!

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.

Tasted at the Bistro’s 13th Annual IPA Fest 8/7/2010. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy and fruity. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy. Nice balance. Medium to mild bitterness. Good carbonation. It’s a touch sweeter and less hoppy than most IPAs. Nice flavor, just not many hops. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

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.

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.
