Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Golden hued beer that has a white soap suds head. Light lacing. Aroma is classic west coast IPA with rich sweet caramel and fruit. Taste is, too, but with pale malts. I taste pineapples and grapefruit. A little spice and plenty of tropical fruit. Not very much citrus. Floral notes and melons late. It is just a bit earthy. Good stuff.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook chat. Pours copper with a white head. Really nice lacing. Nose is citrus and floral hops. . Medium in body and a resinous mouth feel . Flavor is citrus and floral over over a nice malt rich caramel malt backbone. The finish is dry and bitter. Tropical fruit appears as this warms. And as Dave points out so do melons. This is a classic west coast IPA. Tasty, Hoppy. Bitter. Good.

Intense hoppy aromas of citrus, pine, grass and lemon peel. Some licorice in the back as well.
Medium bodied with a light carbonation ,smooth mouthfeel. On the palate it tastes similar to what it smells. Fresh and fruity with a nice bitter kick!
Bitter finish that stays around pretty long.
