kaser (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Cloudy orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. White fluffy head. Pineapple lemon orange smell. Delicious perfect aroma. Coconut vanilla slight taste on a tropical fruity treat. Very good

Ibrew2or3 (6926) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a slightly hazy deep gold body that supports a tall billowing off white head that has a thin orange hue to it. The aroma is juicy and resiny where Iím getting warm tangelo and pineapple blended quickly into resiny pine hop notes. Behind those big notes are thin murmurs of floral and earthy kind of tea like hops. The taste starts tangelo and pine resin like and pithy grapefruit and then picking up a pineapple and mango. This is juicy resiny and sweet all at the same time. Pretty nice but the resiny notes and the juiciness donít go together as well as I was hoping. As those notes fade mild notes of floral hops are noticed.

TimE (3226) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy golden color. Very perfumy, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice in the nose the nose. The mouth has an odd malt taste and comes across extremely light for 9.5%, tons of fresh hoppiness and a ton of grapefruit.

julesjis (57) - Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Poured from a 22. Had an amazing first aroma, but what a let down with the taste. It was too grassy. Like barnyard grass. Beer was way too bitter. After tasting the aroma changed to a horse stable smell. Iím glad I only had to share the second half of this bottle..that was more than enough to choke down.

liquidhedonism (70) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 22 oz bottle from Uptown Market in Beaverton, OR. Poured with a short-lived, frothy, and rocky head. Looks thin. Aroma is grassy, with notes of vegetable, bread, sawdust, and watermelon. Very hoppy, but not over-the-top bitter. Pretty strange IPA.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Zymurgeist2 (1030) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 21, 2014
From bomber to pint glass. Massive tropical fruit, moderate high mint and slight orange aroma. Clean, fresh-shorn wheat in slight support. Slightly hazy pale gold with a full, massive white head. Head is fluffy cloud-like. Taste is exuberant tropical fruit. Moderate cracker wheat malt in support. MASSIVE bitterness, leads to a quick finish. Dry. Alcohol warmth present. This could be amazing with a lower bittering rate, but it was hard to get past that to focus on the positive aspects.

marcus (6537) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a nice beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish. Lots of flavor.

ben4321 (3944) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Location: Bomber from Hicksville Beer & Soda, 8/7/14

Aroma: This one has a pretty big, hoppy aroma, pine and tropical hops, with some caramel as well
Appearance: It pours a clear gold-orange with a thick froth of white head and some streaky lace
Flavor: The flavor is strongly hoppy with some sticky caramel, and a rather bitter close
Palate: The body is medium-full, a little sticky, smooth, with a long, rather dry finish
Overall Impression: This one is a dry example of the style, thereís some underlying caramel sweetness, but it doesnít come close to balancing out the hop bitterness. This is actually a pretty interesting beer.
