COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fiercely hopped and hopped again, Thumper IPA keeps on going and going. Does it tantalize your tongue?

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle split with Ben on November 11th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt.
Taste: Bready, faint citrus, little bitterness.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: Just like Ben, I think this maybe one of the worst IPAs Iíve had. My second Minhas beer, might be my last. Iím confused why this is distributed to Maryland all the way from Wisconsin when itís just not very good.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/11/12, Palindromic Rating #2552

Aroma: The nose is a little off, some fruity notes, a little soap, straw, not great
Appearance: It pours a hazy dark orangish color with a small head and light lace
Flavor: The taste, feels off like the nose, a little bit soap and fruit, and a odd hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a fairly poor mouthfeel/finish
Overall Impression: Iím not a fan of this one at all. Iíll make sure to avoid this one going forward. As far as I can tell from the oneís Iíve tried, Minhas just doesnít make good beers.

thegreenrooster (3082) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma smells kinda fruity but deffinatly no hops. Flavor is a sweet sticky malt with no hops and a awful sourness toward the end. I gotta agree with most that this is weak sauce. Taste like my first attempt at homebrew. $1.99 at trader joes as boatswain IPA.

Bottle from Trader Joeís. Clear dark amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel and straw. Taste is caramel and paper.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Vague impressions of caramel, citrus and dirt. Deep, dark orange color. Sweet earthy flavor, like composted oranges might taste. Slick, syrupy body. I should have known when it said Boatswain was brewed in Monroe what was afoot. Damn you Trader Joeís! For two bucks a bomber, it probably better than a malt beverage in that range, depending on who you ask.

penstemon (107) - - NOV 8, 2012
Purchased at Trader Joeís as Boatswain American IPA. Pours copper with a white head. Aromas of toffee and yeast. Almost sort of a Belgian yeasty thing going on in the flavor, with grain sweetness and a hint of burnt sugar. Very lightly bitter finish. If I didnít know this was supposed to be an IPA, I would have no idea. Too sweet and very little hop character. Not a horrible beer, but pretty underwhelming.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bomber from Trader Joeís. Dark amber color upon pouring. Almost hopless nose. Smells like a malt liquor. Very little in the way of hops. Some fusel qualities. Not good.

Steasy66 (804) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Like most of the beers from this brewery, this one has a big cola aroma and flavor. No hops at all, tastes more like rootbeer. Pretty terrible.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Sampled at an ebls tasting. Kind of pumpkin color. Clear and no head. Ph, not good. Bitter hops with little flavor. Some malt. Odd sourness.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Hazy light orange with a creamy white head. Earthy cereal grain and orange aroma. Tastes of grapefruit candied orange peel and caramel with a sweet earthy cereal grain and fruit finish and a thick sticky palate. Thereís not enough hops for an IPA and it tends far to the sweet side instead of the bitter, but for a $2 bomber itís actually not bad and the taste is quite pleasant. If youíre expecting an IPA you will be disappointed. If you pretend itís some other style, itís worth the 2 bucks.
