COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This northwest IPA is bold and balanced, with a rich malty flavor and a strong hop presence. We use premium 2-Row, Crystal, Munich and Victory malts to create the perfect base for showcasing Yakima-grown Columbus hops. After one sip youíll agree, this is one hoppy bitch of a beer. 6.3% ABV 80 IBU

Very Balanced with a very forward malt profile and finishes with a good hop flavors and aromas....very sessionable IPA and is not over hopped like a lot of the IPAís on the market today.

Draft pour at the 192 lake trail taproom. Pours a solid copper color with a thin film head. A wet, mild hop, rich malt aroma and flavor. Iíd say a bit more malty than hoppy. Not that itís a bad thing, though it contradics the description. Decently bitter finish. This isnít a great IPA, but itís good, and Iíll try again.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a hop with some pear like qualities. Appearance is a murky brown with a cream colored head. Taste is a earthy hop with some pear flavor coming thru. Palate is a muted hop. Overall, a decent IPA. I interested in trying the double IPA crazy bitch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bomber into a glass. Copper pour. Aroma is citrus and grass with hints of cereal. Taste is assertively bitter with hints of nail polish remover and an abundance of citrus bitterness. Really unpleasant to drink.

16oz can pours with a slightly hazy deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a dirty white head. The timid aroma offers up malts, a touch of caramel, some sweet citrus hard candy and then pine resin and floral hops out the back. The taste begins soft and somewhat sweet with citrus, malts and floral hops. To midway pine resiny mixed with a sliver of caramel malts bubble to the surface. So the bitter somewhat resiny hops and malts arenít working all that great. Still pretty decent IPA.

Great IPA, a little cloudy on color, but very hoppy almost an assault on the taste buds, but surprisingly balanced flavor. Good IPA

Fatehunter (1401) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma starts with bright mango and pineapple, but quickly turns to a dull dank smell. The change is abrupt. The taste has a solid and bold bitterness all the way through. The malt attempts to balance it but the hops dominate. The texture is crisp with a thicker body. Itís enjoyable. Lots of big hops.

Draft. Unclear orange amber. Decent white head. Dry and floral. Flower powder. Not too aromatic at all but enough flavor. Similar to what others have said, this needs to be hopped up more.

Poured from bomber. Interesting frothy white head lingers. Dark cloudy yellow. Peppery cigarette hops, some bitter. 4.9 bd

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to Duchammer: Poured a hazy copper orange with a white head. Malt aroma along with light hops. Gritty hops and malt. Does not live up to the name.

Solid IPA. Would I call it a hop bomb, or even a hoppy be-atch? No. But itís good. Nice malt backbone. Malt-hops balance is 1-3. Pine-oriented hop notes. Nice bitterness, which isnít overwhelming. This beerís true problem is that itís misnamed, but I do like it.
