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

DialSquare (2849) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bomber, Boatswain American IPA, Trader Joes in Tally. Orange pour with thin off-white. Aroma is toffee, butterscotch, malty. Tastes are caramel malts, maybe a little grass. Sweet, candied. Not horrible, but they would’ve been better off labeling it as just "beer" for 2 bucks and not "American IPA".

rumproasts (3204) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
bottle of Boatswain American IPA from Trader Joes. Amber with small head. Very mediocre IPA. Pretty strong malt base and dull hops. At least it was cheap.

BrewBoxer (2092) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle bought from trader joes under a different name. Taste is hoppy at first like a standard americn IPA. very well balanced and good. Enjoyed this

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Consumed under the moniker of Boatswain American IPA. Powdery, lightly sweet, nutty?, vague caramel aroma without much in the way of hops. Not an AIPA aroma at all, but OK. Standard US bomber, throwback label with 1800s typesetting. Clear, dark tea brown, an extemely clingy, thin, saltine-colored head. Metallic and overbrewed, moderately sweet. Medium body, loses carbo. *Weeps* - it was only $2.49 for 22oz! How can you screw that up?!?!? Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

swanmann (616) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 14, 2013
bomber from Trader Joe’s in Santa Rosa: it’s clear and rich burnt orange with about an inch and a half of web-y, fluffy foam. It smells mostly of caramel. The taste is caramelly sweet with a slightly sour brown note; some aspirin type bitterness dries out the effect slightly.

This beer is alright - nothing special, just a decent beer to enjoy on a weeknight. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blairgus (2687) - California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
11 oct 2013, bottle. Orange, clear, some bubbles. Nose is sweet raisin malt. Med body and a tad fizzy. Kind of apple raisin malt. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

shonobiwan (212) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2013
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

argo0 (11590) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2013
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.
