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

Another bomb(er) from Trader Joe?s. Pours amber. Light head, bitter flavor. Nothing special here.

Long Island, NY - 22 oz. bottle poured a clear amber color with a little white head. Aroma was way too malty for an IPA with no hops to be found. Taste was excessively malty and dank. I don't know what else I should have expected from a 3.99 bomber. Horrible beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle, Boatswain American IPA, thanks Peregrinari. Crystal clear copper body with medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, strawberry, some caramel, light vegetal. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, caramel, some orange, resin. Medium body, low carbonation. Not great, but not terrible. Still, hardly seems like an IPA.

scarletfire65 (918) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bomber from Trader Joe’s - as Boatswain American IPA. Amber pour. The aroma is faintly malty, with a whiff of alcohol. Moderately bitter throughout, dusty old hops, brown sugar, not much flavor.

Nero55 (657) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle. Light amber with small white head. Some light aromas of hops and some malt sweetness. Light body with some hop bitterness upfront with a sweet finish. Too sweet and not enough hops for an IPA.

Block (1333) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Amber pour with with a thin white head. Caramel sweet aroma. Medium body. Light flavor with more of an alcohol bit at the finish. Not as well rounded.

Bottle from Brook Falls Discount off the singles rack. Blah .... nice pour, but not much else was nice. Bready, faintly malty, but not sweet or bitter - just thick-ish and not very tasty.

Bottle 22fl.oz.

[ As Boatswain American IPA ].
ABV: 6.7%. Clear medium amber orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light hoppy, vegetables. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, sweet malt, vegetable - floral. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO. a bit odd ! [20130223]

Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 12, 2013
This review is for Underworld Brewing "American India Pale Ale" Pours a hazy copper with a decent head that sticks around. Appearance would be a 4 without the haziness... Aroma is pleasant and fresh on top but contains a musty unfinished undertone... tacky. Flavor is unbalanced and comes at you from weird angles: Sour, then sweet, then bitter with salt... bletch... Finish is oily with lingering bitterness... Will not buy again.
