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

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2013
Flaska. Bärnstensfärgad mot konjak. Gigantiskt vitt skum, som också nästan vägrar att dra sig tillbaka. Snyggt, men lite man får inte ha bråttom att smaka på ölen. Torkad frukt, karamell, citrus och grape når näsan. Mot gommen smålunkar fram russin, plommon, apelsinmarmelad, citrus och sljus sirap. Låter bättre än det är, för även om det är en helt klart drickbar IPA, så finns där något artificiellt över den som inte ger höga betyg.

thornecb (4293) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Mild citrus aromas. Dry with sour fruits and bitter earth front to back.

DedicatedToFun (2158) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Not a bad APA, hoppy, smooth, came cheap at trader joes so was a good bang for the buck

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Fusel alcohol dominated nose with caramel, moss, and cherry notes. Hazy copper, thin head. Alcohol noticeable. Vague bitterness, very artificial flavor. Grainy finish. Passable as an IPA, but obviously cheaply made. At $1.99 a bomber, it’s a worthwhile introduction to styles other than pale lagers for those on a budget.

Pours amber with a thin wispy white head. Notes of sweet hop resin, pale malt, light caramel, citrus.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 11, 2013
(as Boatswain AIPA from Trader Joe’s) copper/amber with off white head. Fruity hops aroma. Flavor is citrus/passion fruit.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Unpleasantly sweet, with the most flavorful component being the yeast. Tastes better served extremely cold, but you should probably just skip it all together.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
Cybercat (3200) - Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Had as Boatswain American IPA. Pours a clear, dark amber with a fairly thick, though not persistent, pale golden tan head. Aroma is not at all strong and hardly registers. Flavor is malty, a little sweet, slightly hoppy, more like a regular ol’ ale than an IPA - and even for a "normal" ale still mediocre. Texture has average body and fizziness. Overall, meh, but still drinkable.

ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has some creamy toffee, but with a nagging rubbing alcohol aspect. Hazy dark amber with no visible carbonation and a thin, mostly white head. Nice lace. Flavor noticeably lacks hops which is shocking for a beer that claims 79 IBU. It has a flavor profile more closely resembling that of an amber. The commercial description says "fiercely hopped and hopped again", which is quite frankly false advertising. All that said, still drinkable. Labeled as Rhinelander Brewing with no mention of Minhas. I’m sure there’s a story behind that.
