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

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.

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.

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

Aroma is citrus, medium sweetness and tea. The flavor is citrus, mild earth/dirt, sweet malts and sour/tart twang in the finish. Not horrible but something was mildly off about this.

jgentgesdo (685) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Pours a beautiful orange/amber with a medium tan head with good legs. Nose is very faint citrus hops, a little soap, a little bread. Sweetish flavor that turns later slightly astringent and bitter. Watery mouthfeel. Meh.

As Boatswain American IPA from Trader Joe’s. Medium copper color with a cream colored head. Aroma is sweet bready malts - very pilsner like as many others have mentioned. Maybe just a hint of an earthy hoppiness. Flavor is quite malty sweet, almost artificially so, with only some slight bittering hops present at the finish. I could maybe see this as a pale ale, but certainly not an IPA. Medium bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel. Clearly this is not an IPA by any craft beer drinker’s standards considering the uber-sweetness and utter lack of hops.
