Boutip (5183) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a golden amber color ale with a medium foamy head with slightly below average retention. Aroma of bitter and citrus is dominating as expected but is well balance with some sweet caramel malt. Taste is also a nice mix between citrusy bitter malt with a nice backing of caramel malt. Body had an oily texture and was about medium full with some low carbonation. Very good take on the style but probably still notch down from my personal favourite such as Dreadnaught and Smuttynose Big A IPA.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2007
220z bottle purchased from Bauer Wines in Boston. Pours a clear, medium straw colour with very little carbonation or head. Aroma is hoppy, but doesnít seem to be as strong as some of the best of the style. But the taste is very, very nice. Very full taste, chock full of hops and well-rounded. A good balance of bitter and floral hops, just the way I like it. This one is a treat, although I rated it slightly below the Stone Ruination.

Excellent IPA. Aroma and flavor are both full of hops. Very smooth for an 11% percent brew.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bomber. Clear orange color with a medium head. Spare lacing. Hoppy aroma of citrus (grapefruit, mostly), pineapple and other tropical fruit. Taste was nearly the same with just a touch of sugary, malt sweetness. West coast balanced, for sure. (Hop) Oily texture. Maybe the finish could be described at bittersweet, but I definitely wouldnít say bitter. An east coast winner.

Bomber courtesy of HogTown Harry- canít say enough good things about that beer swilling dude This is a kick ass beer. Plain and simple. My apologies to Piscator34 for not saving this bottle to taste- its been a long week and I was in desparate need of hops. Sorry man Poured into a normal pint glass. Quite clear beer- usual IPA color with good head. Aroma is top shelf - a wave of amarillo hops hit me Sweet sweet amarillo hops. This may be the best aroma Iíve ever had the pleasure. Simply outstanding. My taste buds are watering at this point so time to dig in. Taste does not dissapoint. Hops assault my mouth, but in a very good way. Not astringent at all. The bittering hops are there donít get me wrong, but the bitter holds its ground for just the right amount of time and then gives way to a malty sweetness and the aroma hops. If I had to fault this beer, it is on the sweet side, but given the 11%, not a surprise. Not overly sweet, I thought played well with the hops. The centennial and amarillo dry hopping is a nice touch and blend together wonderfully. This beer is all about the hops and hits the mark. Outstanding!

demitriustown (1133) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2007
22 oz bottle via trade with Jah Noth (thanks!). Decent amount of hops in the aroma with the tell tale signs of an Impy IPA. Grapefruit, pine needles, and big hop characteristics. Appearance is a clear golden/orange color with a big rocky white head. Taste is rather fleeting with a really dry palate at the back of my throat. There is a big hop presence with some good grapefruit characteristics, piny, and nice and spicy. Overall, Itís not the best IIPA that Iíve had. The taste is kind of one dimensional and fleeting. Itís pretty good, but not quite up there with the big boys.

LinusStick (3002) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2007
This beer waa mess. Had on tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Everything was too divided. Pour was a thick syrupy orange with no head and little carbonation. Aroma was a smack n the face of hops. Taste was overly sweet and malty with a bitter hop taste battling (and not coinciding) for attention. Blah

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Served in a Michigan Brewing Company pint glass. Poured a dark, ruby-brown color with only a slight head. Beer looks very inviting from the appearance. Smell is some slight hops. Not incredibly intense. Taste is where this beer really shines. Very good hop taste and presence. Very bitter hops up front, buy very smooth on the mouth. Mouthfeel is smooth, but not quite as refreshing as I like. The label states that this beer is 11%, but it is nowhere to be found in either the taste or being felt. A very good beer from Southern Tier. Iím still madly in love with their Jah-Va stout, but this is a nice change of pace.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle from jah noth. Clear copper body, thick off-white head. Crisp, bright hops aroma delivers abundant citrus and pine notes. Caramely malt notes lurk beneath the hops. Sugared grapefruit adequately captures its complexity. The body is an oily, resinous hops tea, featuring a medley of flavors, including abundant citrus, burnt fall leaves, perfume, flower petals, and pine. Lingering sugary fruit syrup coats the palate at the end of each sip, becoming overbearing after a short period of time. This beer is a lesson in complexity not equaling greatness, as there is simply too much in the way of resiny hops to really enjoy this beer. My verdict is favorable but with the caveat that the parts are greater than the whole in this case.
