Amber in color with a white head. Nose is sweet orange with some grapefruit. A weird hint of banana, some pine, grass, and sweet caramel. Decent citrus flavor, mild bitterness, caramel, and light pine. Orange and grapefruit, grass, and some toasted bread.

Bomber poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, woody hops and light fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, tobacco and earthiness with a smooth dry lingering tobacco finish.

Tap at Daily Pint. Thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Full haze red pour. Thicker white head with thick, complete lacing. Nose is mild vegetal, detergent, fresh strawberry, dusty. Taste is massively bitter, dusty, astringent, nutty, abrasive. Long, chemical palate. Harsh and abrasive.

Just picked up this $9 bomber at Tom’s Farm in Corona. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up plenty of cherry and plum fruity esters (ok, what style is this?) as well as sweet candy like citrus notes. The taste is very much the same, sadly, where sweet dark fruity esters and malt sweetened muted citrus hop flavor rule the experience and run it right into the $9 per bomber ground (wtf!). Around the edges of the flavor I get a modest degree of resiny hops that don’t come close to pulling this aged mess together. I’m not too happy about paying full price for such an old tasting bottle.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle, from DocJitsu in the OTM BIF, thanks Dennis! Lovely deep reddish-orange pour. Very frgrant hoppy nose, interesting combo of florals and green notes with some sweet melon too. Very pungent hoppy palate, green notes of crushed nettles and pine, background notes of marijuana and ripe tropical fruits. Very fresh and complex. The finish is long and intensely bitter with a slight medicinal quality. An interesting hop profile that deviates from the standard "grapefruit and pine" profile found in many Cali and PNW IPA’s, in a positive way. Delicious.

Draft. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Pine aroma. Pine and caramel flavor with grapefruit and light summer fruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and caramel lingers with grapefruit and light summer fruit.

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Interesting. ABV of a IIPA, flavor profile of a standard pale ale, just bigger and chewier. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit, and a good amount of biscuit malt. ok, but not what i was hoping for."

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Clear amber color with ivory head. Pine, spicy hop, tropical fruit, grainy caramel aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Spicy, citrusy hoppy flavors with tropical fruits, and a lightly sweet pale maltage____drying finish----good.

Sledutah (5098) - Utah, USA - FEB 10, 2013
22oz bottle picked up at Country wine and spirits
Appearance: Clear golden with a big off-white head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Pale malts and citrus
Taste: Citrus, caramel, earthy, finishes with a mild bitterness
A nice clean beer. Very little bitterness. The only thing that would make this a IIPA is the ABV, which is hidden well.
