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!

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 ipa’s 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.

Nice murky orange pour with a fluffy white head. Citrus and pine hop aroma. Big hop flavor that coats the mouth. Dry finish. Good IPA.

The nose is full of apricot and herbs, with a hint of candied pineapple. Flavor has a firm backbone of herbal hop bitterness. Nice.

A rather nice IPA. Pretty standard really. Actually, if i was to describe what an IPA should be like, this would be it.

Big nice IPA here -- glad that Pizza Port is making its way out east. Beautiful deep orange hue and well-hopped tongue feel. A little metallic bitterness towards the end mars just a bit an otherwise excellent IPA.

22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Pours out a hazy orange color, with a sticky tan colored head. Aromas are hops all the way. Flavors are hops & caramel malts. Pretty standard West Coast IPA here.
