Smells great, tastes great and you canít beat the $3.99 price for a bomber. I canít add anything that hasnít been already said other than it tastes like I would imagine that beer made out of some killer bud would taste like. Pretty floral and easy on the gullet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Rubicon. Golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is orange, grapefruit, and floral hops. Some pine, bread, and toasted malt. Not bad. Flavor is decent as well. Moderate bitterness, some grapefruit hop notes, and a touch of orange. A bit more bread forward than Iíd like, however.

Golden color but hazy with a white foam. Aroma is a mix of citrus, melon, and malt caramel. Hop bitterness is distinctive. Flavors of malt and bread clash with the hop citrus and red fruits. Finish is dry and bitter.

Pours a hazy copper color with a small head. Aroma has some bitterness and fruits like bananas. Taste is unique with almost a Belgian quality to it. Slight bitterness and then some citrus in the backend. Average IPA.

Sweet in the buds at first then nice hopped bitterness. I like this beer because it reminded me of NBBCís Ranger line which is my favorite dept. store brew. A craft beer should stand out from the rest because of the premium price imho, and this beer did not. However, this beer could definitely be a door opener for people who like sweeter beers to turn a new leaf. I will buy this beer again and try others from the company. This beer is brewed from one company and sold by another and craft beer is a delicate process which takes close attention so brewers beware. Regards, AZZJ97

Cloudy orange color with white head. Strangely very little aroma. Taste - Mild grapefruit notes, floral caramel malt and a bit herbal. Itís pretty good but not my favorite flavor profile for an IPA.
