(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of markgugs. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden with a small, off-white head leaving some laces. Fresh grapefruit notes in the nose. Medium-bodied with a light, underlying malt sweetness, but otherwise completely dominated by a distinct grapefruitish bitterness. A bit soapy. A fresh west coast IPA but also solidly bitter. 050807

Cloudy orange color with a decent white head with some sticky lacing. Big hoppy flavors and aromas. Grapefruit flavors predominate. A nice malty smooth complexion to give this one some backbone. Bordering on a double ipa for me. You are left with some sweetness. Glad I smuggled this one back from SD so I could finally try it.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Golden butterscotch and clear. Iíve come to appreciate this one big time. For a straight IPA, itís exceptionally smooth and warm on the palate--I typically only find that in double IPAs that have more alcohol to work with. That said, it has a vicious hop sting to it that I love. [compared next to Bear Republic Racer 5] Iím still a bit caveman in my ability to distinguish tastses, but the Racer 5 tastes more piney to me; the Wipeout I think has a kiss of peach. Tough call, but I think right now I like the Wipeout a touch more.

Bomber, pours a lightly cloudy orange color, good sized off-white head and moderate lacing. More subtle but pleasing aroma of pine, grass and light floral. Flavor has a good hops bite that lingers, and only a slight maltiness to temper it. A well done IPA, and one I plan to add to my regular rotation!

Pours to a clean orange body with a very nice white head and super awesome lacing. The aroma is bitter grassy hops but not much else. The flavor is grassy bitter hops and pale malts. Quite malty for an IPA. The palate is resiny and bitter. This beer is highly over-rated and doesnít remind me of when I was in San Diego at all.

Bomber. Hazy gold with a white head. Grapefruit and pine nose, malt seems to be an afterthought. Very bitter grapefruit rind flavor, just a hint of sweet malt. Nice!

OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
bottle, from trade with whaleman. Good aroma, bittersweet. Usual suspects. Pine, citrus, orange, grapefruit. Little toasty. Golden orange color, big head, though I poured too fast and half the glass was foam. Good lacing. Bittersweet flavor, Grapefruit & lemon mainly with other parts that I got in the aroma in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish.Itwas good, mouthfeel was great. Like alot of ipaís for me lately the aroma was more enjoyable than the flavor. Well done overall.

Clear copper with nice head and decent lacing. Piney floral hops are obvious on the nose, as well as subtle aromas of citrus, and roasted sugars. Floral hoppy to taste, an intriguing hop presence, with lingering echoes of citrus spice and ever-so-lightly toasted malts. A nicely bodied IPA, and a fine brew.

This was a bottle that Ross decided to whip out. Thanks a bunch! Pours out orange with a nice lasting white head. I can already tell this stuff is gonna be good from the aroma alone as it was poured. Sweet smelling grapefruit and lemons with a hint of sugar and pine. Taste is great and reminded me of a hoppier Two Hearted as grapefruit, pine, and grassy notes all mix well in this beer. Very smooth drinker, this one. Excellent stuff.

Bottle from Hitime - thanks! Pours out a bright orange color with a white head on it. Smell is pure hops, some citrus, some grapefruit, and some orange notes. Taste is fruity and bitter hops. Smooth, and very easy to drink. Perhaps the replacement for two hearted, if it was that readily avaliable to me. Really nice stuff.
