Draught. Reddish pour with thick white head. Citrus, pine and grass aroma, balanced. Flavour is hoppy without being a hop bomb, they didn’t make a monster. Hop finish

12 ounce can from Hayduke. Darker than most with some haze. A fluffy off white head that leaves sticky lacing. A big aroma of citrus and floral hops with malts to match. The first sip brings some big bitterness. This has the makings of a double but without the ABV. A big citrus bite to this one. It is not for the faint of heart and is a hop lover’s dream. There are some herbal notes, too. This settled a bit by the finish but it resembled an IIPA to the end. Huge flavor and lower ABV is a winning combination for me.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Tasty, standard red ale, nothing fancy. Malty and hoppy. Lacking in the ABV department but overall, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via trade, got it as an extra along with some TREATS. Pour a deep amber shade with very small head and not much lacing. Aromas are nice: grass, caramel, pine, and citrus fruit. Taste is most of the same with average mouthfeel. Good amount of Simcoe in this guy. Finishes bitter and a little bit dry. Glad I got to try this one.

22 oz. Bomber: Pours a dark amber with ruby tones and a frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Has a floral and citrus aroma with hints of pine and caramel in the malts. Balanced flavor starts with sweet grapefruit and finishes with a piney bitter bite.

Pretty nice IPA from MS. Malty and medium sweet with good bittering and heavy herbal grass hops with light citrus as well. A bit more malty then i expected but good.
