Are you a hopinista? Thank our Beer Rangers for inspiring (and begging for) this well-balanced Simcoe, Cascade and Chinook hopped IPA. 70 IBUs

seymour (1876) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Tasted bottle at The Handle Bar, St Louis, Missouri, USA into standard pint glass. Pours a predictable clear, golden-amber color with fluffy white head. Aggressive hops aroma, I’m thankful for some unique Simcoe instead of entirely Cascades. Spicy, woodsy, citrusy but not overly grapefruity. Well-rounded malt sweetness stands up to the hops bitterness as well as could be expected. You can’t really speak of balance with this kind of beer, but it is undoubtedly a well-crafted IPA.

strongpieman (1648) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bomber. Gold to amber color, clear, nice white foamy head. Strong floral hop aroma, bitter.... Good flavorful ipa. Would recommend and have again.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bomber->tulip: Pours a large, white, frothy head atop a clear, dark amber body. Aroma of hops, and quite a delicious one at that--very refreshing. The body is thin and bitter, finishing on the back of the throat, leaving an ever-so-mild taste of hops in the mouth long after the sip. This is a very clean and crisp beer that does not confuse or muddle your senses and is somewhat approachable by those who are not crazy about IPAs.

smaynard6000 (975) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a bronze color with a thick, foamy white head. Nice spicy hoppy aroma and flavor. A good IPA, would definitely drink again.

Very hoppy aroma with a near perfect balance, if you can find this beer I would say give it a try.

50belair (3341) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
On tap at the Gingerman in West U. I am normally a big fan of NBB, but this was a real disappointment. Yellow pour with a white head. Bland and watery with a meager portion of piney hops.

AWISLguy (2467) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle - thanks ck1. Pours orangey with an off-white head, many bubbles below the surface. Aroma is sweet fruit, pine, citrus. Some bread. Taste is citrus, malty, bread, Not a lot of body. Finishes thin.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1007) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 30, 2011
yellow-gold with an eggshell-colored head. Aroma is pine, moderate flower-garden, some cirtus, very complex. As it warms, a dry cereal (bran) comes out. Medium bodied. Clean pine flavor with a bit of dry maltiness and some grapefruit. I think this is an excellent IPA, right up there below dogfishead 60 in terms of quality.

Double dry hopped cask at Churchkey. Gorgeous amber pour, fantastic thick frothy head. Nose holds big grapefruit, orange zest, and pine. Flavor holds more awesome blood orange and woody sweetness, along with earth and manure. Bitter but soft and approachable. Excellent.
