bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear light copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is perfumey floral. Maybe a touch of melon. Med body or better. Flavor is very floral, with some burning hop. Citrus and melon. Must be other things, but it’s all rather mixed. Hop burn moderates, flavors smooth out. Light toasty malt backbone is apparent. It’s a wonderfully made ale.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Growler (from Whole Foods Chandler, AZ) opened and poured with a bouquet of aromatic citrus that billowed out of the growler and glass. It has a clear deep copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma erupts with grapefruit and tangerine notes backed up by just noticeable sweet maltiness. Towards the end of the draw a bit of mango tropical fruit is noticed. The taste begins with a firm degree of citrus hop bitterness that tries hard to stay ahead of the lightly malt sweetened citrus hop flavor. It goes back and forth between grapefruit, orange, clementine and tangerine and then ending with a sweet sliver of mango that tries to edge in amongst the largely bitter citrus hops. Darn nice IPA. Wow.

Bottle. Bright orange amber, lovely ripe soft tropical fruit hop character, quite sweet and juicy, some herbal and conifer notes linger in the finish. Very good.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
A little rougher and a little more serious. Ready to play with the big boys. Lasting foam on dark amber. Strong complex hop scent; mix of eucalyptus, cedar and spruce. Touch of medicinal eucalyptus in the taste. Solid malt and a bit of hop spiciness. A bit of spruce tips.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
650ml bottle pours a copper color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with citrus and pine and a trace of caramel. Taste is a bold citrus and pine hop bitterness with a light caramel and tropical fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation leaving a nice feeling on the palate. A very bold and tasty IPA that is definitely worth sampling.
