22oz bomber, no date. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a 1/2 finger fading creamyish light beige head. Aroma of pineapple, citrus, tangerine, some toffee and slightly bready malts. Flavor is quite fruity hoppy--tangerine up front, followed by pineapple. More caramelly malts and a bit of the bready maltiness again. Lots of hops in the flavor, though not a ton of bitterness until the finish--moderately bitter. Burps slightly stale citrusy pine. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, very slight prickly mouthfeel with lighter carbonation. Quite a nice IPA.

Thanks SecretSanta. Light copper color with a taller ecru head. Aromas of sweet grapefruit and light caramel. Lots of hops, quite bitter throughout the quaff. Just enough malt to keep it honest, but still a hops dominated, somewhat typical PNW IPA. As My attorney and I mulled this one over, we both said very good, not great, but certainly very good.

A big citrus aroma with a touch of pine, very, very good beer. Not very complex by any means but very good.

SpringsLicker (3213) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Thanks to beer_Hawk for sharing this one at our Nashville Tasting! Pours clear dark amber with a fleeting head. Musky earthy hop aroma comes easily accompanied by plenty or sweet malt. The flavor is bold, assertive hops with a dryness that builds into a long finish. Well done use of blend of an American hop blend, but this will have to take back seat to the memory of the old Frank.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Bottle courtesy of Beer_Hawk at the Nashville Tasting. Wonderful citrusy and sweet aroma. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Very nice grassy and piney hop flavors with a sweet doughy and honey like malt backdrop. Hop bitterness lingers nicely. Another well done west coast IPA.

Nice citrus hops aroma; very crisp and fresh. Malt aroma too. Nice light auburn color. Very San Diego-ish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Bomber from BevMo. I was so excited to see this on the shelf, i’m a huge fan of the san diego ipa. This is actually a very complex ipa and nearly borders on DIPA character. The first blast is crisp and refreshing but not tart, the aftertaste does seem to linger some apricot/peach/orange delightfulness. Holy crap I love IPA/DIPA!!

22-oz. bomber from FlacoAlto. Pours clear amber with a small fizzy white head, quickly dissipating, spare lacing. Aroma is light malt (meal, cereal), heavy hops (flowers, fruit, spruce), light yeast (dough) with notes of apple and peach. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; nice clean fragrant hop flavor. Medium bodied, average carbonation, thin and oily texture with a metallic finish.
