Fatehunter (2271) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Poured two fingers of head on a clear, amber colored body. The aroma is grapefruit, orange, and cottage cheese (weird). The taste has a strong grapefruit and lemon bitterness beginning to end. Nothing subtle about this. The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation. It’s a bit bold on the bitter side without any balance or complexity.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours an effervescent amber gold and has a big almost white head. Nice lacing that slides down. This has west coast IPA written all over it from the aroma. Big citrus and caramel behind that and that is in the flavor. Cascade is a hop that too many have moved on from. To me it is like a fastball down the middle, like a layup for two. This is the roots of the American craft beer revolution. Hopefully we will never move too far from exactly what this beer is. Nicely done.

This bomber was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat and came from the Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Priced at only $3.99. Pours a dark gold with a large creamy off-white head and great lacing, Nose is caramel malts with citrus and a little floral hops. Medium in body. Smooth clean mouth feel. . Flavor is a nice caramel malt backbone with a good dose of citrus and great bitterness. The finish is bitter. Really refreshing for a beer with this much flavor and bitterness. Solid IPA. My rating may seem high but I like what I like. This is really good.
