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

Fantomasus (289) - 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.

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. 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.

MarinEvelyn (722) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Aroma is sweet, dry, malty, earthy hops. Tastes very sweet, almost like candy. Fruity, lightly dry finish. Very sweet, not much like an IPA, but drinkable.

fidelis83 (2224) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Hazy copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is floral, citrus and fruity hops, lemon, light berry notes and caramel syrup. Flavor is sweet malt, planty hops, some citrus, corn silage, sweet caramel, sorghum and some weird planty, fruity and higher alcohol notes that I can’t really describe. Light to medium body with a medium, sharp carbonation and off dry, syrupy feel. Really weird and not very good. Probably not worth the $3/bomber price.

Amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little bit of lacing. A small hint of hops under a muted malt aroma. Taste is vegetal with a carbonic finish.

650ml bottle; $2.66 after tax. Bought as Boatswain American IPA. Pours clear copper with a large off-white head with some staying power. Aroma is a little funky, yeast/chemical. No hops. Taste is almost cloyingly sweet, yeasty, and just off. Almost a fleeting shadow if hops, but it’s gone in a flash. Agreed with the rest of the reviews--this is not bad at all for its price, but whoever called this an IPA has never had an IPA before. The most amazing thing is that the bottle states this beer was brewed to 79 IBUs, and yet is not even remotely bitter.

Super clear orange. Very watery no hop aroma, malts exist. Some earth and leather. Not sure what type of beer this was if no t for label.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Aroma is cereal, grainy, even a touch medicinal...There’s heavy booze right away, a lot of sugary sweetness, then mild hop bitterness in the finish. This is a very mild IPA at best. Body is too thick and sugary, not nearly enough hop flavor to be an IPA. Amber ale with a little kick is more like it...

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2012
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.
