Draft @ The Bistro Wet Hop Fest. Cloudy, pale copper color with a bright white head. Vegetal hop aroma with some citrus and lemongrass notes. Hop forward flavor but surprisingly malty. Vegetalness does not show up in the flavor.

purchased bomber at BevMo. this beer does it for me. its a nice departure from very malty and sweet IPAs. dry finish and a long lingering bitterness. very green tasting like pine and grass. bottle poured a slightly hazy golden color. hoppy goodness.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Draft at Bistro. Pours with a hazy yellow color, looks unfiltered. Aromas of grapefruit and some floral notes. Not as hoppy as expected, fairly mellow. Finishes with a strong bitterness, but on the palate it is mainly citrus and a bit of pine.

The beer departs the 22 ounce bottle a beclouded yellowish orange with an exorbitant creamy white head that slowly fades away, the resultant lace a nice occluding sheet upon the glass. Nose has a big citrusy, grassy, flowery aroma, the malt sweet, crisp and clean. Start is sweet at the front, with the malt pronounced and the hops spicy, top is medium in feel. Finish has an invigorating hop spiciness, the acidity agreeable, with the hop spicy aftertaste permanently bolted to the palate.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours a hazy orange color with yeast in suspension and a medium white head. Superb aroma of fresh, dry hopped, resinous and green hops. Solid flavor of green, resinous hops with the distinctive dry-hopped signature, there’s also a good measure of malt and a strong, dry and bitter finish.

On tap at Port Brewing San Marcos. One of the best IPA’s I have ever had, very smooth and very well balanced. You get a sense of refreshment when drinking this brew. Very hoppy aroma, very citrusy and very piney, the taste is very bitter with an awesome bite but finishes with the right amount of malts. Excellent brew!

On tap at Port. Clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine with fruit notes. Chewy palate with strong pine bitterness and citrus taste.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 9/16/2007: Port Brewing High Tide Fresh Hop I.P.A. pours a bright golden yellow and is mostly clear. The lasting, dense off-white head is frothy and creamy and leaves some foamy lacing. There is a tornado of lively carbonation in the very center of the glass. The aroma is hoppy with candied citrus peel (tangerine and grapefruit) and some scarce resin/pine. There is also some underlying sweet hoeny maltiness. The flavor begins just the opposite of the aroma with the pleasantly sweet clover honey maltiness followed by a grapefruit and floral hop bitterness that is moderate in strength and lingers on the palate. However, the finish seems to get a bit soapy toward the bottom of the bottle... This beer is extremely well-balance and has a medium, slightly syrupy body that is quite smooth. This is an excellent IPA that is very true to the style!

1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (6.5% alc. by vol.) from realale420. Thanks Brian! Rating #133 for this beer...

Bottle in trade. If an IPA is going to be an IPA then this is it. When I opened this bomber and started to pour it into my glass I could already get an aroma of hops, very nice. I drank this cold after a hot run this last summer. It was scarily refreshing and is direct competition with Smuttynose as my fav IPA.
