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

Derek881 (1131) - Riga, LATVIA - 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 (1378) - 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 (1022) - 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 (8102) - 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.

dnstone (2370) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Copper in color with a decent sudsy white head. Cherry fruity, some banana and earthy hop notes in both aroma and taste. Taste finishes slightly soapy-bitter. Bottle called Boatswain American IPA from Trader Joes

jjkuck10 (66) - , Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pour slightly hazy deep orange with light head. Aroma is citrus, bread dough and grass. Flavor starts sweet moving to a bitter and then sour note. Tine, watery texture and light body with moderate carbonation. Less hopps than expected.

Sammy (9685) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
A light coloured yellow with carbonation bubbles and lots of foaming head. Very mild hop aroma. Some hops there but mostly a dry gummy beer. Minimal drinkability.

Nothing really stood about this beer to me, other than it didn’t taste much like an IPA, maybe a pale ale. Had under the Underworld label.

First off, when you go in expecting an IPA, you will be completely dissapointed. That aside it wasnt unpleasant just not what i expected. It could have been old and lost some hop character. Had more of an ehglish yeast and malt character that an american IPA. It grew on me but feel short on style guidelines
