fiveacestx (680) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bomber - pours dark gold with a medium head. Not overly hoppy but definitely has a grapefruit hop presence. Not all that spectacular. The warmer it got the less I wanted to drink it.

Frank (3156) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2015
This does not strike me as a beer that was brewed to a terribly high standard. Itís pretty bland for an IPA to be honest. Itís clear yellow orange color with a head of medium bubbles. It smells of minerals and pine needles. Itís dry and slightly watery w/ medium carbonation. I got this on draft but it somehow seems a little skunky or perhaps the hop variety was just a little bit catty. Finish is fairly bitter but not too harsh. This isnít at all terrible or anything but drinkable is the most superlative compliment I can pay to it.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Toffee sweet malts, light floral and earthy hops, and light bitterness. Blech.

Aurelius (4506) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Aside: I was presented with my original bottle of this nearly 20 years back by Mr. Belmont. I didnít drink craft beer at the time and left it on my office shelf as a momento. Poor decision. Good label and logo on the bomber. Hazy, maplewood or caramel colored brew. Aroma is malt forward, a little honeyish, a little vanilla and toffee up front with a sprucey hoppiness and slightly toasted tones following. Pleasant. Drier than it smells, vanilla tones on the lips, some slight tin, almost-juniper tones towards the back. A little wood, a little toast, enough hops to keep you interested, but not enough to put you in the hospital. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Woody, dry toffee finish. Enjoyable. Habershamís Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah. On fire sale - $2/bomber, what a deal!

beastmaster (349) - Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Nice head on this pour on tap in Seattle. Amber red. Not much for a nose. This beer is more on the maltier side. Well balanced.

slowrunner77 (6289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
a nice IPA and one of their better brews. citrusy and floral hop aroma and taste, but not overdone...not that iíd mind that...but this one is balanced nicely. not enough there to be a phenomenal beer, but a solid IPA by any standard."

beastiefan2k (2647) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Sampler at the brewpub. Dark golden color, clear. More hop assertive than the other beers in the regular lineup. However, its too grassy for me. Bitter and grass flavor. Clean malt character, just wish hops were different, not my thang for the hops.

brokensail (12022) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap @ Pikeís. Clear golden orange pour with white foam. Fruity, jammy nose. Some peach and apricot, a fair amount of orange as well. Some caramel and a lot of bread. Flavor is a bit too sweet for me. Too much caramel and bready malt. Peach preserves and some orange marmalade. Some citrus peel and a bit of pine bitterness.

Clear copper of color with a nice huge off white head. An aroma of pines, citrus, caramel, grapefruit, bitter and amlty. A flavor of hops, citrus, grapefruit, toffee, malt, bread and bitter.
