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

kassner (1506) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 bottle as Boatswain from Trader Joes. reddish copper color,, clear, modest head but nice lacing, pretty hhigh carbonation level, perhaps not an IPA with notes of fruits and nuts it is very drinkable at a Price under $2. Another bottle at 4 Bucks from Perfect Pour. I am dissapppointed in the perfect pour. Not an I{PA of any type. Sort of a bad lager, with an ugly scum floating on top. Metallic and cemically pungent

This is much more of a brown beet than it is an Ipa. Brown and nutty. Thin head. Low ibu for ipa. Very tasty beer, just not an ipa.

22 oz bottle as underworld IPA. Clear amber pour, thin off white head. Sweet, sugary, a bit of caramel, and a bit of bitter metallic hops. Not good, but at least I could drink the bottle.

screigh (597) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours a hazy copper color. No head at all. I’m not even sure what the aroma is...weird. Tastes weird too...copper, metal, oily. Initial bitterness on the tip of the tongue. No hop aroma. No hop flavor. Taste more in line with an amber and a bad one at that.

Panzuriel (1698) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle purchased at Trader Joe’s as ’Boatswain American I.P.A. Beer is a dark golden/amber color with a fine head of light tan bubbles. nose is very faintly hoppy reminsicent of what IPA should be but very very faint. A bit of bitters on the front, but really thin and virtually disappearing by swallow. Not a bad IPA for the cost, but certainly not a great beer by any stretch of the imagination.

SpringsLicker (3374) - Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2012
Pours clear medium orange with a white head. Slight citrus hop aroma. Pretty well balanced malt/ flavor but a bit weak for an IPA. More a mild Pale ale, but needs more malt and more hops to run with the IPA crowd.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle purchased at Trader Joe’s as ’Boatswain American I.P.A. dark gold/orangish pour with a medium off white head. aroma is biscuity/dusty malt, light sour-ish citrus. Ugh, one dimensional cardboardy bready malt body. Flash of light citrusy bitterness then an alc like sticky sweetness and iron tang hanging onto the finish.

My stupid fucking friend picked out this beer. Never heard of Rhinelander, why not? A clear orange brown with about two fingers worth of head. Some heavy lacing. Some pine in the nose and a weird honey and malt. This tastes gross, some light hoppiness but mostly malt and a little honey. Light to medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, and a short finish. Bad beer, tastes really old but this is relatively new to shelves so I’m thinking it’s just a subpar beer.

Called Boatswain American IPA. Pour out of 22 oz bottle was clear orange-yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of some off biscuit and mineral notes, slight cardboard notes as well, hints of slight citrus but very faint. Taste was weak biscuit and bread with a slight stale note, hints of citrus as well finishing fairly dry with a touch of bitter. Not very good.
