COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
East coast vs west coast...a battle that has been waged for years in many forms. Now there arises a brew that strives to unite the two sides. This IPA bursts with an inviting hop aroma in conjunction with a carefully selected monastic yeast strain. It delivers unexpected, yet delectable flavor. Case closed?

This is one of the most interesting IPAs I can find. Its a mix of a west coast and east coast IPA apparently. Unique taste to it, you get a lot of flavor.

Sweet lemon, orange, coriander. Witbier sweetness; flowery hop. Not a hint of bitterness. Grassy. The appearance is banana yellow; sweats on the outside of the glass. Slushy head, smooth sheet of lace. The flavor is some woody pine oil hops that are a jet trail to the fruity sweetness. Starts with spices, orange and lemon; finishes on a bitter-ish woody note: very strong. The palate is thick, chewy; leaves a dry, powdery finish. This is a complex brew right here. Evolves from sweet and summery Belgian blonde to woody IPA in one sip flat.

22oz - The pick of the litter for me. Nice effervescence, enough malt, good shot of hops. Being fresh and local doesn’t hurt either.

22 oz. bottle. Pours lightly hazed yellow gold with a large fluffy off-white head that lasted until the very last sip and left pillow of lace all the way to the end. Pleasant aroma of citrus, more orange than grapefruit, with a few notes of pine. Seems like there is a bit of spice in the aroma as well. The flavor begins with malt and is followed by some nice fruity hops goodness with orange and grapefruit. Some spice in the flavor as well, more noticeable than in the aroma. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Very enjoyable IPA.

22 oz bomber. Pours a murky rusty brown orange with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of orange citrus peel, tangy hops, toasty malts and mild candied sugar. Taste of orange peel, lemon, tangy hops, toasted malts and light candied sugar.

Draft at Pony Bar. Pour a lightly cloudy gold with thin. Aroma is citrus hops and Belgian yeast. Hoppy flavor with citrus and pine and then a ton of spice from the Belgian yeast. Pretty solid.

Bomber. Loved the artwork on this one, especially the no swimming, funny. Apparently this one is a stab at a Belgian style IPA, though from the description, not sure. Nose is great, hefty cloves combined with a bit of grapefruit. Appearance is a dark hazy gold, fluffy thick white head, solid thick lacing. Palate has some Belgian yeast elements, a bit of banana bread but that is rather quickly blasted away by the hops. It’s good, but I might prefer a bit less hops to enjoy the intricacies added by the yeast strain, then it might be great.

Bottle in the campground at BCTC. Pours a hazed orange amber with a thin white head. Spicy floral notes with musk and yeast. Floral hops on the nose. Sweet, musky and toasty. Citrus and toast, finishing up with more musky yeast notes. Nice.

Bomber - Although not advertised as such, this is a Belgian IPA with a very distinctive yeast, very foamy head which masked some of the aroma, but has a nice lingering hop finish to it. Price point at $6.50 for the bomber is on the high side compared to other BPA/IPAs.
