walleye (1102) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Pours a copper with some orange and a thin white head. Aroma citrus pine, and grapefruit. Flavor bitter with pine, fresh citrus, caramel and grapefruit bookman10 (1206) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Pours a cloudy, bright golden-yellow, with minimal head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma smells of apricot or spoiled peaches, with a touch of hops. Flavor is very sweet (almost verging on barley wine sweetness), with apricot/peach, some hops, slight booziness, and a slightly bitter finish. Not particularly piney, dank, or resinous in my experience. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Lasting white foamy head that dissipates to the edge of the glass. Paint stripper aroma. Angry clementines. Not terribly good. olio (10547) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
650 ml bottle. Enjoyed at San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sweet orange marmalade, floral notes and biscuit. Flavour is rather sweet and jammy with orange sweetness, herbal notes, English toffee, resin and biscuit. Medium bodied. Low-ish carbonation. Alcohol warms. Bottled about 10 months ago. Re-rate needed from a fresh batch. Mark_Eck (1998) - - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish gold color. Aroma and taste are citrus and fruity hops with a good malty backbone. fcjack1 (276) - Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Bomber From the copper door. Pours a light golden color. Thick white head. Scent is hoppy, piney. Taste is sweet, dank, hoppy. Good ipa. ctipping (2233) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours a deep golden color with a white fluffy head. The head lingers a bit leaving substantial lacing. Wonderful aroma. Very fresh and hoppy. Citrusy and a bit piney. Nary a hint of malt. Taste disappoints a little compared to the nose. The hop flavor isn’t as pronounced. It’s not overly malty, but the sweetness is just a bit too much. The aroma led me to believe it would be a wonderfully hoppy beer and the taste is kind of a letdown. Low carbonation gives it a creamy feel. Medium bodied. Good, but in the end it’s too malty to be all that great. Mep3222 (1634) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Malty sweet aroma with a bit of a pine resiny hop aroma, but it almost gives it a bit of a tropical finish to the aroma. Taste is very malty but somehow not sticky. Piney hops balance the malt very nicely. Has the bitter resinous finish, but it is muted by the malt. There is a bit of medicinal hops in the finish as well. This is a full flavored malty IPA, but surprisingly good, and I tend to not like the piney ipas, I think the balance between malt and hops helps with this one.
