Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent frothy head. Light hoppy aroma. Nothing much else in the aroma. Decent hops in the taste. Some light grapefruit and tart as well. Not really offering much but a decent IPA.

milewide (1784) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Labeled Boatswain American I.P.A. at Trader Joe"s. Much better than the ratings. Modest aroma, but taste was a fine blend of sweet malt and woodsy hop flavor. 6.7% ABV.

$3 bomber! This stuff so rude it borders on the double imperial old IPA taste. Cloudy iced tea color. Strong, medicinal. Alky begins to stick its ugly head up. Does have some minor cutting co2 in the background. Difficult, semi hard, strenuous, arduous, laborious, tough, onerous, burdensome, demanding, punishing, grueling, and nearly back-breaking, Good deal, thanks trader joe.

jrodooo5 (1301) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Decent pour but another horrible offering from minhas! Pours copper w/ an off white head & lacing. The aroma is just a little malty. The taste is very odd & more similar to malt than hop. Fiercely hopped? Really? I don’t get any hop flavor & I’m not sure if I’m going to b able to get these 22 ounces down! Ehhhh

Palate : medium bodied, drinkable. Average, maybe tad lighter than most carbonation. Average finish.

halfonit (1244) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Clean pour with a thinner head. Aroma doesn’t actually smell like hops. Flavor is of stale hop, grass, metallic, farm, and malt. Leaves a stale and unpleasant hop finish. A first and last.

kidobutai (547) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Not bad. Poured from a bottle. No head but okay lacing, clear and off-yellow. A bit skunky on the nose but not the taste.

Luvystypotables (1182) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2015
A funky aroma of malt and skunked beer, pours a clear caramel color. Taste better than it smells, caramel, and malt with a hint of hops. Medium body with a bitter finish.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and bread with light fruitiness, some vegetable/herbal hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and bread, light fruitiness, light - some herbal hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel - some bread with light fruitiness, some herbal hoppyness, light alcohol. Bready "IPA". Could be dried with less caramel.
