SILVER METAL 2000 Great American Beer Festival! Big, bold hop flavors define this wonderful India Pale Ale. This is a stronger, hoppier version of a regular pale ale. Loads of Columbus, Cascade, Willamette and Centennial hops are used in this beer that would please any hop-head!

Enjoyed as part of a sampler at Oggi’s in Garden Grove, CA. Appearance dark amber with not much head. Aroma more of an English IPA, dominated by malts with a light hop backing. Taste brings out more of the citrus elements, the maltiness actually goes away a bit, which is unique. It’s decent.

Strykzone (6745) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed this together, he in California and I in Illinois, via facebook chat. This poured hazy and was a bit coppery. A big gushing head was fluffy and light. It lasted too long for my short patience. The nose was pine and pineapple with a bit of caramel. The flavor began with big hops that included pine and tart citrus. Caramel is noted but is almost overwhelmed by the hops. This could be a double IPA with the aggressive hops. They finally numbed my tongue enough to let some caramel in. This grew on me and was a really nice beer. Thanks Ron.

glennmastrange (2680) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle. Light to moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast with background notes of pineapple, coriander, and paper. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear golden amber, but the last pour is muddy amber/tan with some chunky pieces. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation. Some odd but mostly excellent aromas, and the flavors are pretty good though a bit weak. This is still a top notch IPA.

bth122 (1499) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Poured a hazy yellow color. Full frothey head. Aroma of citrus pine hops, some sour apple. Med-lite bitter, light sour. Creamy texture, ave carbonation. Too much sourness in this beer. Maybe skunked?

acearl (497) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bomber, rust hue with tan head, carmel malt makes for heavier texture, still hoppy, nice mix of citrus and nector, overall decent balance

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
A: The pour is a golden orange/amber color with a finger of white head and some mild lacing. S: Fairly typical and middle of the road IPA aroma to this beer. Heavy on the pine notes with a big lemon smell and some decent citrus peel. Bready malts and mild toffee give this some sweetness. T: A big time lemon flavor that is almost like a lemon scented cleaner. Decently bitter with a bit of an herbal hop flavor and some grassiness. A moderate malt character with a mild sweetness. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Not bad, but a really middle of the road IPA. Nothing I’d care to have again.

Terminus (3595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2011
tap at apple valley location-pours dark orange with a very small whtie head. huge smack of diacytl right out of the box-it shows on the flavors but has a more brittish taste to it, probably due to the diacytl. i dont think this was to be a brittish ipa, but it definately is like one. some resin/.dirty hops/pine comes in the finish but not very good. This could be good if it was clean.
