patricks110 (1758) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Dark orangey amber body with a dense whitish head. The aroma has solid zest and resin notes with hints of orange rind and grapefruit. The flavour profile has loads of citrus notes and mild pine resin flavours as well as a few tropical fruit notes. The finish has moderate bitter and a sticky, astringent aftertaste.

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
[Bottle (650ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, fruit and resiny hops. Flavour is fruity and hoppy along with a moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
2014-09-26. Crisp dark orange body with a nice foamy off white head. 3+ Aroma has a nice oily resiny orange citrus character. Flavour is similar, nice sweet resiny orange character, tangerines. Light bitterness throughout. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable. Bottle via trade with Duffman.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2014
Pours amber with a white fading head. Nose shows sweet clean malt, some resinous hops and piny notes. Very malty. Similarly malty flavours, lots of clean sweet malt alongside a bit of piny and resinous hops.

daleharshman (933) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
First rating for this newer local brewery. Bomber purchased at BevMo in Escondido ($4.79). Pours a clear-ish golden orange hue with giant fluffy off-white head that recedes slowly. AROMA of overripe tropical fruit and citrus, honeysuckle, soapy hops, warm dusty grains, and light cat piss. FLAVOR of grapefruit, mild tropical fruit, sweet grains and honey malts, and light pine. Light bitterness with a moderate sweetness means a nice balance here. Really liking all the Kiwi / Aussie hops appearing in IPA’s these days! (24, 914)

The passionfruit tropical perfume of the nelson hops won me over to this one. A soft feel with just enough bitterness to have a bite. Finishes slightly bittersweet.
