A True Hop Bomb Brewed plenty of Columbus and Mt Hood Hops for a Piney hop character. Premium Pale, Honey and Munich Malt make this beer a little less malty but packing plenty of hop punch.

Don’t remember the color but the smell was nice. Very hoppy. Taste was refreshingly bitter with fruity and citrusy flavor. Strong hop flavor and was quite fresh tasting. Good body and carbonation. Much better than average DIPA.

BREWMUSKCLES (2427) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2009
cloudy light orange brew with white tight head this ale is wheaty in body and appearance it is harsh in taste with bitter grapefruit hop character that seems ripe with honey, sugar and is incorporated with a lost sense of broomstraw malt that is somewhat apparant only overwhelmed. finishes long after sip and that is bitter grapefruit rind in hop syurp. typical American power IPA and i highly enjoy it.

Kinz (3559) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Pale, very slightly hazy orange with a long lasting, creamy head. Pretty much perfect appearance. Aroma is lightly caramel with warm grapefruit and pine hops. Flavor is some gummy malts, pine and anise hops, bitter orange peel and grapefruit finish. Nice, rather enjoyed this one.

It pours a hazy gold color with a centimeter of thick foam. It has a hoppy aroma with hints of chocolate. The flavor is pleasantly hoppy and mildly bitter.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden /orange with a thick off-white head that leaves traces of lacing. Fairly hoppy aroma with pine, citrus, grapefruit and a hint of caramel. Flavor is mildly bitter and hoppy with piney resin, citrus, light caramel, orange and grapefruit with a medium body and has a dry finish.

Ughsmash (7408) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Bomber. Poured slightly cloudy medium orange with an easily-resuscitated cap of eggshell head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, orange zest, and pine over a soft caramel and bready base.. some sort of dark, sweet malty impression really stuck with me.. felt like it had potential, but it failed to shine. The flavor did the same thing for me.. it had caramel and light fruits at the core, but it also picked up a light hit of corrugated cardboard.. bitterness surrounded in the form of syrupy pine resin and wet grapefruit.. finished sticky and sweet with non-deScript residual bitterness. Heavier-bodied and sticky on the palate with less bitterness than anticipated.. juiciness at the end showed promise and provided a solid final impression. This wasn’t bad by any means, but I was hoping for more.

Pours golden amber with a darker shade of brown. Medium bodied. Not much head at all. On the palate I get hops, citrus and floral notes some malt as well. Decent lacing on the glass. This one just didn’t do it for me though. Oh well.

Bottle from Hophead22 beer tasting, compliments of Mike and Di. Light hop aroma with caramel and toffee. Cloudy golden color. Tastes a lot better than the smell, lingering bitterness.
