Bottle in KC picked up at Trader Joes. Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a small tan head. Biscuit, caramel, bread, light hops in the nose. A bit tangy, very light citrusy, biscuit/cracker malty, moderately bitter flavor. Overall pretty bland.

$3 bomber at Trader Joeís, but itís called Boatswain American IPA. Again, let me reiterate... $3 bomber of IPA. An at 6.7% itís probably the best thing to happen to the homeless since St. Ides came to market back in the late 80ís. So, with this in mind, this turned out to be unremarkable, though not as bad as St. Ides. They also have a DIPA for the same price, but I knew I was already pushing the boundaries of taste and self loathing by getting this. That said, itís not awful and should I embark on hard times, this will be my sauce (or maybe the DIPA... you need milage for the buck when youíre down on your luck). Itís a lame IPA... thatís the depth of my review

This particular beer was provided by Buddy Alex for the dart tourney in which I particularly dominated. I have this fluid to thank. A decent IPA but it does not stand on the shoulders of giants. Thru Boatswain label via trader joeís. Mer. Body was a bit on the watery side.

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.

cheap (4888) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2015
$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 (1370) - DOVER, 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 donít get any hop flavor & Iím not sure if Iím going to b able to get these 22 ounces down! Ehhhh

Radek Kliber (6890) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Where and how: b. 650 ml
Aroma medium strong, mildly pungent with feel of caramel sugars, touch of citrus.
Appearance :
Top: small, off-white with rings on glass.
Base: hazy, amber
Palate : medium bodied, drinkable. Average, maybe tad lighter than most carbonation. Average finish.
Taste: interesting blend, chose of hops and malts. It created notes of black tea, tad leafy greens with raw end.

halfonit (1280) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Clean pour with a thinner head. Aroma doesnít 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.

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.

Poured from a bottle. Musky malt and hops aroma. Light body with a really sweet flavor and a sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luvystypotables (1298) - 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.
