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

Trader Joe’s clone, under "Boatswain American I.P.A." Pours a clear dark orange with a small amount of stark white head. Suspiciously little hops in the nose. Raisin, actually, which I noticed with the other Minhas beer I got from TJs. This is in no way an IPA, there is no flavor of hops, just a slight dark fruit sweetness that fades into an unsatisfying bitterness. At least it was only 2 bucks for the bomber.

$2.99 @ Fresh’n’Easy: Labeled as "Underworld Brewing." I just sampled the double IPA so my bar has been lowered. No, this isn’t a vacation in Hawaii -- this isn’t limbo (the dance contest). The bar has been lowered, as it pertains to my tongue. So, I kinda like it. Actually, I get some notes of caramel and citrus in this one -- flavors I enjoy in beer. Accordingly, the aroma and taste is a notch above their double IPA. It’s a good thing I didn’t work through a taster of quintessentials at some beer festival. This rater would’ve found himself drunk, leaning way down to li-li-limboooo!

Alias goodness. Trader Joe’s dropped the ball signing up to carry this crap. This...is...horrible. Prominent flavors are old baseball card pack bubblegum and chapstick.. Aroma is dirty bitty. There is some decent cherry taste in there, but it is well under all the crap that makes up the rest of this beverage. If you have $2 to buy some alcohol at Trader Joes, please get some 2 buck chuck. This is really bad.

sloth (2547) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Thin off white head with good retention and decent lacing. Lightly hazy, dark copper colored brew. Nose is faint with some caramel malts and a slight spice note. Body is almost medium, soft carbonation, lil oily. Flavors of some grainy malts with a lil bit of tangerine. Weird off flavors, bandaid, medicinal notes are faint but still obvious. Dry, astringent finish. Bomber from statelineliquors.

Headbanger (3415) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2012
22oz bottle 7/2/12 (Trader Joe’s-Naperville)-Boatswain American IPA-44° in Shaker-Pours a medium amberish brown with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, grains, and slight hops. Taste of the same with a bit of a sopay taste. This medium bodied brew is not the best IPA but for the price I can’t complain.

Copper color with creamy lasting lacy head. Citrus & floral aromas. Medium hoppiness with definite malt in the background. Very smooth on the tongue with a crisp clean finish. Very refreshing IPA.

Bottle. Tastes like a malt liquor with hops. Good for malt liquor fans. Bad for IPA fans.

thedm (4973) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 22, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The mild aroma was mild malt and mild hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of strong delicious caramel hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear golden orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of citrus and an earthy bread backing. Flavor is a bit thin with some light grassy hops with a light grain backing.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Hazy orange pour. Grassy hops with some caramel malt. Decent IPA, but not a standout.
