Pours a clear golden amber from the bottle, aroma is a balance of hops with a whiff of maltiness, and the balance follows through on the flavor. Crisp, delicious IPA that for all its bitterness, is not overpowering in bitterness but instead the perfect offset to the malt. This would be the beer to give someone who was turned off on IPAs due to an overhopped example, Probably my favorite IPA of those that are widely available.

This IPA got me into starting to enjoy IPAs since I was always so stuck on stouts. I’m still a stoutman but I’ve broadened my horizons thanks to this beer. Very floral and hoppy and awesome!

Bomber. Pours a clear orange yellow color with a small white head that laces well. Aroma is of piney high alpha acid hops; floral and spicy with a definitely malt back bone. Flavor is upfront spicy and hoppy (grapefruit and spruce) and caramel sweet. Moderate ester profile to complement the hops and malt. Finishes dry and pleasantly bitter. Mouthfeel is fairly full and smooth with a perfect carbonation level. Great IPA.
