22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a white head. The modest aroma offers up a thin mix of citrus, earthy herbal hops and some spicy hoppiness. The taste begins with a nice bitter citrus hop bite of grapefruit and tangerine. It then heads into some citrus hop flavor and spicy slightly onion like hops. It has a decent enough malty base creating a pleasing mouth feel. Pretty nice.

Much more flavorful and aromatic than the abv or ibus would imply. I liked their IPAs in reverse order of strength, a rarity. Bursting with citrus and tropical fruit, this oneís a keepper.

Bomber. Light opaque straw yellow with a fine thin white head. Floral citrus hop on the nose. Light drinking with a dry citrus and pine hoppiness which dissipates quickly. Very sessionable!

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Light yellow, slightly hazy, soapy persistent white head. Aroma of guava, white grapefruit. Light crackery malts allow the hop character to shine. Finish is dry and bitter. A terrific session IPA!

MountainSound (4) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014 does not count
A clean, golden wheat coloured IPA. Fairly weak nose Hay-ish malts with a piney, grapefruit and herbal hop. guessing the IBU is in the mid-high forties. Long lingering grapefruit that held long after i was finished A light fatty head, close to a soapy foam. Not my favourite IPA, but would have it again.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is mildly citrus with light caramel. Med minus body. Flavor is floral/citrus. Itís very bitter, and Iím thinking there are some "exotic" hops in the mix. It has little malt, but itís finishing very bitter. Good thing, that.

Pours bronze with a tan head. Heavy acetaldehyde and oxidation throughout aroma and flavor. Try again.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Almost an ISA. Golden amber with good froth. Quiet scent. Nice drinkable easy IPA. Nice hopping. Kind of a hoppy golden ale.

MunBro (313) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Aroma of citrus and pine. Great citrus blast from the hops: mostly tropical in this case. Mango, grapefruit, passionfruit, etc. Very well balanced. A nice, light IPA with a more wet finish which I prefer.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
660ml brown bottle. Pours out a pretty clear gold, white cap. Nose has some grapefruit and orange and a touch of hop resins. Taste has some grain and crackery malts, burst of citrus hops. Pithy and grapefruity and resiny finish, dry and good finishing bitterness. Body is light to medium and the carbonation is fine. One of the better session IPAís Iíve had so far.

reebtogi (4141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
650ml bottle pours a clear light golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite pleasant with some floral and citrusy notes. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with some light fruit and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Although on the lighter side, this IPA is quite aromatic and full flavored. Well done and a highly recommended session ale.
