COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep chestnut in colour this British style IPA offers a straight forward, no-nonsense approach to a classic style of beer. The late hop additions contribute floral and pine aromaís that make this Mattís personal favourite. The hop profile is not overpowering, starting crisp and fresh and building to a mellow, bitter finish. A generous dry hop emphasizes a green hop accent with an enjoyable aroma.

Bomber from Harry & David in Medford, OR. Pours clear copper with a 4 finger creamy beige head. Itís alive! Aroma of a sort of nutty roasted malt with something floral on top. Med body. Still seems a bit nutty, but now thereís resin to go with the floral. Citrus? Donít thinks so, cause thereís not a hint of citrus sour. Or zest. Very over the pond, except for the ABV. Tasty drink.

DuffMan (6968) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
On tap @ TapHouse in Seattle. Light amber colour, hazy, lightly lacing cap. Aroma is earthy leafy hops and sweet malt equally. Flavour is sweet straw-like malts and earthy light hops. Pretty light, and quite British in character, whether that was intended or not.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle:   Hazy orange, a little dirty, moderate to large rocky sandy head, nice lacing.   Pale bitterness up front, a little citrus peel and pith, but overall not too biting.   Has a slight sweet grassy aspect.   Minor pith on the nose, pale bitterness.   Not a bright example.   Fairly clean, average aroma and flavor profile.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Decent IPA, but nothing out of the ordinary when so many exist.

Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. Sweet caramel, dusty, light citrus. Ok. Light flavors.

22. Pours a murky dark amber with bright golden brown edges and a sudsy tan film on top. Big caramel and oranges nose, with some candied orange peel knocking around. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, toast, and lots of oranges with candied peels on the mid palate. Sweetness grows into a pronounced brown sugar on the finish. On the sweet side, and, while itís hoppy enough, itís virtually unbitter at every turn. Appealing IPA for those who avoid the bitter ones, kinda like a hopped-up wintery brown.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Not bad for the price point. $3.50 I think. Nose of toffee, peppery and earthy hops. A little sugar and a little caramel. Pours copper, off white head, soft lace. Flavors of toffee, light biscuit, caramel, peppery and earthy hops. Not unpleasant. Fairly unassertive but easy to drink. Decent beer.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice IPA flavor and finish. Good malt backing this was a very tasty IPA.

jgb9348 (4810) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2012
Rich hazy deep amber coloured body with a copper highlight and a nice, dense three cenitmetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich caramel malt, english hops, some toffee sweetness and a touch of more bittering, grapefruity hops, but not much. Medium-bodied; Rich malty body and mouthfeel but a less than stellar hop experience with a sweet, caramel, raisin and toffee flavour and a hint of bitterness at the end. Aftertaste has mostly an earthy bite, some good alcohol and a deep english hop flavour that is more like and ESB or traditional EPA than an American IPA at all. I sampled this 65 cL bottle as my first beer back from a week with mostly lagers in the whole of Asia, so this was a welcome and flavourful treat. This bottle was purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 28-February-2012 for US$4.46 sampled at home in Washington on 08-April-2012.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle: Solid IPA. Mild carbonation. Rich malt flavors. Chalky cocoa, light toast, and subtle caramel. Zingy, flavorful hops. Earthy, herbal and floral. Fantastic hop aromas. Great balance between the sweetness and bitterness. Nothing overpowers anything else. Kind of rides the line between English-style and American-style IPAs. Good stuff.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Tap @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Hazy golden amber with a creamy head. Aroma of biscuits, lemon and herbs. Flavor is mildly malty with mellow hop bitterness and flavor. Light body, thin and watery. Not a big fan of this one.
