A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Great palate, aromatic but the hop nose doesn’t follow through as much as I expected in the mouth. No alcohol noticeable which is surprising at 9.4%.

Michigan..huh? You are alright in my book. I love the upper peninsula. Anyways, this is a satisfying imperial. You know.. that strong IPA your taste buds are waiting for. Go for it! That’s what it’s there for. Enjoy;)

Bomber. Citrus hop aroma with notes of grapefruit acidity. Pours dark copper colored with a big off white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with a bit of caramel, but is quickly overtaken by the grapefruit citrus and piney hops. Finishes dry with hop bitterness but balances well so it's not overpowering. Good stuff.

Flaska. Fina dipa dofter. Fruktig o balanserad. Smakerna sitter mycket bra för här finns torkad frukt lätt maltig o fin efterbeska. Helt klart en trevlig dipa som kommer att drickas fler gånger.

TattooJack (361) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Poured from the bottle of the 4-pack, sweet, hoppy and strong, with a bitter aftertaste. 10% is hardly noticeable because I’m wasted and didn’t see it coming.

Bottle purchased at Elevated in South Minneapolis. Poured into Moeder Lambic glass from Brussels. Slight haze running through a golden orange like colored IPA. Nose is definitely assertive. Tropical fruit and citrus notes. Taste follows along with the tropical fruit theme with a boozy presence looming throughout the sip. Nice bitterness balanced with a healthy dose of sugary sweetness. Pine and resin are felt. This one is a borderline double IPA and that’s probably why I’m such a big fan. A tip of my hat to you New Holland. This one’s good.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2008
2008 MiBGF: Coppery hue with a excellent head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramelized malt, floral and grassy hops, apple and peppery phenolic esters. The taste start with bitter snap and acidity supported by lots of sweet malts for balance. Hop spice and slightly boozy finish. The mouth feel is oily and sticky, warming with a sharp kick around the edges. This was really nice and the best beer I had on Day 1.

Bomber. Pours a darkish copper with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Aroma is big with grapefruit, resin, caramel and a light woodiness. Flavor is caramel quickly dried by the resin, wood and grapefruit. Near-medium body is smooth, dangerously drinkable, and dry.

Pours a lacing, beige head with a pale copper body. Pineapple, mango, vanilla aroma. Resinous, peach, pineapple, malt flavor. Dry, bitter, fruity finish.
