Poured an amber color with crazy head and good lacing. Aroma was of pine hops all over the place. Flavor was citrus pine some caraml to balance it out. Good IPA.

22 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Opened with a big hiss. Poured a couple ounces of beer with a huge off white foamy head. Slightly hazy amber color. As the head settled, it left a good bit of lacing behind. Has a soapy, citrus aroma. Flavor is bitter and oxidized. I think this guy is going South. I hope it was a old bottle. If not, this is not a good beer. Thanks Jason, for the chance to try it.

Poured an amber color with some reddish hues to it, large generous head, very nice lacing, above average for the style. The aroma was pine and resinous. The flavor was bitter citrus rinds, strong pine notes, herbal notes, tea bags, caramel malts, and some breadiness underneath all of that. The mouthfeel was full and hearty, nice body for an IPA. A nice beer to enjoy while watching the famed 1990 Eagles-Skins Body Bag game in memory of Andre "Dirty" Waters, RIP #20.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2010 I recently got the opportunity to try this beer for the first time both from a bottle and on draft at Smokin’ Joes in Pittsburgh. This rating is for the bottle which I found to be much better than the draft. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy chestnut color with a huge tan head. The aroma was strong sweet and fruity hops with a hint of apple and pear. The mouthfeel is big and thick. The flavor is strong and sweetly malty with a strong dry floral and moderate fruity hop presence. The overall flavor was rather harsh and reminded me quite a bit of Stone’s Arrogant Bastard. The draft was nothing special.

Many a bomber. Rusty gold body with noticeably high carbonation, a light load of suspended beery matter, and a thick beige head. Hop aromas of stonefruit, cedar, and light citrus plus lightly sweet caramel, earthy malt, and some toast. Woody hop flavors with a notable malt backbone and a mildly roasty, tobacco-like edge. Mostly dry with substantial, semi-coarse bitterness. A very solid, bottle-conditioned IPA.

bottle compliments of michael-pollack. Vagina. sorry to everyone for that but that was mikes fault. hazy amber pour. thick off white head. mild aroma where caramel malts trump the hops. a little strange. dry bitterness, dry hops, sticky malts, slight syrup quality and medium body. some earthy and perfume tones. This is good but just a little off.

Nice brown color color, with some thin white head. Strong hoppy finish that dies quickly.

Pours cloudy amber with thick white frothy head. Aroma is very malty and sweet with obvious, but less hops than expected. Flavor iis mostly piny and a litttle citrusy hops, but not as much malt to balance as expcted from the aroma. As it warms up a bit the malts come through a bit more, but the hops seem to diminish a bit. Palate is mildly bitter, resin like, and piny. Overall, good, but not unique, and I would prefer more hops and a little more balance.

Bomber. Slightly hazy dark orange with a frothy off white head, leaving spotty lacing. Bright orangey aroma with some pine in the background. Sharp woody pine hop flavor over caramel malts. Slightly tart and bitter grapefruit finish and a lingering strong bitter aftertaste. Kind of a sticky, resiny palate. My initial reaction was way too many or too bitter finishing hops, though I generally like the abuse. Uber-hoppy recipe seems to be reaching for that of Stone IPA, but this is just not as well rounded or perfected.
