I can taste the Citra hops for sure, maybe the Simcoe is adding a bit of depth that Citra-only IPAs can have. Overall a very solid IPA worth at least a try if you get the opportunity.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden bodied with a slender white head, this IPA (clever name for a beer) has a sharp aroma of grapefruit zest and lemon (and a whiff of cat box) over some cereal scents. The flavor is lemony, sweetened cereal with a drip of caramel followed by a catty, zesty bitterness, not intense, but enjoyable. The finish is a bit sweet with some earthy pip bitterness. Okay for an occasional drink.

Fles thuis gedronken gedeeld met neef Rene. Donker oranje, licht troebel van kleur. Flink bitter en dennennaalden hop smaak maar mogelijk vanwege ouderdom weinig aroma. Redelijk lekker.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by my uncle Ino. Hazy medium to dark orange color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, strong pine and piney hops. Taste moderate to heavy malts, piney hops and bitter hops again. A little old (best before date Jan 2015) so maybe less fruity but pretty nice nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mouton Rouge Canterbury and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting ivory head. Classic American hop ipa grapefruit resin aroma. It’s ok. Not amazing. But it’s ok, solid and competent. Doesn’t hit with fresh fresh hop but it’s got decent bitterness on the finish and decent resiny hop. American malty aroma. Fine. A little bit of heat. But it’s solid enough

2.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is great but as far as IPAs it had an odd flavor on the backend. Not bad for the most part. I would definitely drink it again. I love to drink California brewery beers. Always drink local.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber from Binny’s in Schaumburg, IL. This must be well aged or badly mishandled, because no way this bottle would be a 90+ rated beer. Clear yellow-orange pour with a small soapy white head. Cardboard, stale hops, a bit of herbal - I can’t get much of the good stuff others found in this. Damn shame.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Wittales. Clear light amber pour, white head. Aroma: spicy and herbal, pines and thick caramel. Taste: Moderately sweet, a little bready, caramel with sharp bitter finish. Palate: medium+ body, slick/thick texture, average carbonation. Overall: had never heard of this one before. Pretty typical IPA with a few months on it (I presume - no bottle date).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, not a whole lot else – big pine and a thin malt backing. Flavour is identical, with monolithic piney hop notes, some juiciness, and a bready caramel malt backing. Nice pine-dominated IPA, but nothing overly special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Orange juice. Not beery orange juice, just orange juice-as-IPA. Faint chocolate malts as it warms, but overwhelmingly sweet, sweet OJ. Too sweet, too one note.
