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

I had this under the Boatswain label--available at Trader Joe’s? It was at a neighborhood card party. And...it’s not very good. Murky malts, dull hops, making a vegetal caramel with a few nods toward hops. Bottle.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, floral notes and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange zest, floral notes and light pink grapefruit with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Holy Crap, this is terrible! And I mean almost a drainpour terrible. Justtaste awful. Harsh and thin and no balance. Tastes cheaply made by a brewery that is cranking out beers as fast as they can, quality be damned.

Mohogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is light metallic, roasted malt, sweet and a little nutty.

dankman (253) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Not bad, but not good. Pours amber with a medium sized head. Yeasty nose with some sweet malt, mild hops. Bittersweet malt with astringent hop flavor, finishes with some bitterness.

Derek881 (1013) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Poured from a large bottle into a narrow pint glass to drink. The beer had a slightly cloudy amber-orange color with some sediment and an average-sized foamy white head with some retention and decent cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a malty-sour caramel and earthy-citrus hops with a slight bit of grain. The taste was fairly sour and grainy with a slight citrus bitterness and a light bit of caramel and mash. The beer had a medium density body with low carbonation and a slight creamy body.

JoeinDahlem (1332) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2012
A cartoon caricature of what I dislike about many American IPAs. Drunk as Rhinelander Boatswain. Can’t honestly remember where it came from. Trader Joe’s, maybe? Boozy, corny-malty aroma. Amber color with fading grayish head. Mildly fruity, sweet taste with a harsh bitterness. Thin and a bit hot.

raphael (894) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2012
smell of cake but not sweet smell, fresh lumber. slightly hazy yellow amber w/ solid off-white head. seems more a pale ale than an IPA, given the malt/hop balance, but heavier in the mouth than most pales.. the bitterness stays atop the honeyed sweetness but just barely. clean finish

Ferris (4729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle - After trying their regular IPA I was hoping this would have the punch necessary. They don’t get it and I am tired of talking about this. At least this one is a bit bitter.

$2 Bomber Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours orange, white head. No hop aroma. Taste is malt with skunk. Avoid.
