22oz. Consumed today. Best by 7/9/10. [A] Pungent piney, earthy, citrus notes over a sweet pale, biscuity and caramel malt aroma. Smells like a Fat Tire with some dank hops. Or something. [A] Clear golden pour, with a bubbly body and white head, kind of recedes into an island atop my brew. Fuzzy lacing. [F] Flavor follows smell pretty closely. Piney, earthy, zesty citrus hops. Bitter is actually quite nice. The malt is mild here under the hops, with a pale and slightly caramel taste. [P] Thin to mild bodied. Appropriate carbonation. The hop bitter is impressive enough to appreciate. And keep my interest through a 6-pack. Not my first choice for a session, but a bomber was enjoyable, and I probably could do more. [O] If this is as "micro" as your local 2AM liquor store goes, or the only bomber you can afford when you need a hop fix, by all means, grab THIS. It satisfies, but does not exceed. Iím sure there are better things you could fit into $4-9. A solid offering either way @ 6.5 and 70 IBUs. Could stand to be a little maltier. Definitely a repeat at the right place & time. Iíll give this one some props for $2.99+.

Bottle. Clear, golden amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is melon, pineapple, very juicy with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour is pretty light, more melon and slight citrus, nicely balanced but pretty mild. Nice overall.

Very nice IPA. Pours clear copper with creamy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Grapefruit flavor with some tropical fruits and pine with a decent hop bitter bite.

New Belgium is looking like a pretty good bet at this point. Very hoppy first bite that opens on the palate, then calmly fades. I really like this....doesn't seem like a filling IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emusche (103) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours hazy orange color, very pale (I can see my hand behind the glass), nice sticky head with lacing that clings to the glass. Aroma is big tropical grapefruit, earthy pine, pleasant spicy herbal notes. Taste is a burst of citrus, with a solid malt backbone, clean finish. Above average.

Nice solid IPA. Bit more mild hoppy than I prefer, but a smooth taste, pretty good brew

Damn this would have been good when it was fresh. Shame the store I bought it from is selling out of date stock.
