Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium white head that dissipates slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with some roast malt in the background. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and a touch of herbs. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tap @ the brewpub. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, straw, citrus and malt.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, solid hoppy and citrusy. SOlid hoppy, peachy, grapefruity and citrusy. Bitter, light fruity impression but actually bone dry and bitter into the finish.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Draught at Rock Bottom, Seattle, WA, USA.
Hazy yellow golden colour with tiny to small white head. Piney harsh bitter hoppy aroma. Some crispiness and piney bitter hops in flavour. Bitter but highly drinkable. Lasting bitter aftertaste.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Decent IPA, although not sure itís truly a íhop bombí. Pours honey orange with some off-white clings. Lots of citrus in the nose. Grapefruit taste with a bitter but balanced finish.

AmEricanbrew (5616) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Hazy golden color/ white head. Pungent orange, grapefruit, tropical fruit aromas. medium body. Good pine, leafy, grapefruit hop flavors on a solid caramel sweet base. good ipa.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Nice juicy grapefruit nose with hints of floral hops and earth as well. Pale grains underneath add a biscuity/crackery malt notes as well. Hazy light golden pour, soapy thin head. The flavor is mostly juicy hops. Lots of grapefruit, orange, floral notes. Dry earthy bitterness lingers. Malt base is dry and helps put the hops at the forefront. Lingering dry resins. Solid flavor, very drinkable. I like this beer quite a bit.

Same name as the IPA at the Rock Bottom in Bellevue, but the brewer says it isnít the same and the flavor says the same. This one isnít as good. A light fresh hop aroma. Itís actually pretty pale on the hop bite for such a bold name. Still, a drinkable IPA.
