Bomber. Pours a clear gold color with a long lasting white head. Aroma is citrus hops and pine. Taste is fairly bitter and resinous. Sweet caramel malt, grapefruit, and pine. Medium bodied with a dry, lingering, bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.
Bottled on the 100th day 2015 so 03/15.
A: hard pour yields a lovely pale orange with attractive tan head. Great clarity. Good retention.
S: Grapefruit, pine needles and slight peach. A bit of malt sweetness.
T: More grapefruit than pine in taste but otherwise follows the nose. Fairly juicy and overall pretty tasty. Not very boozy tasting.
M: Light for its strength and well carbonated to make a refreshing drink.
O: A good tasty IPA but way overpriced. Stronger than I prefer as well but IPAs are strong. Ripped off my local HT with a 10 dollar mix-6.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2015 Really nice aroma of peach, melon and abricot. Yummie! Deep clear yellow color with white head. The taste has a fantastic peach and abricot flavor to it along with great bitterness. Sublime fruity IPA.

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Actually tried this a few months after first trying the Habanero Sculpin, which was a beer I loved. It was nice to try this without the spice. Definitely a top tier IPA.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Had at The Union, Encinitas CA. Delicious. Perfectly balanced IPA. Pours yellow orange, clear. minimal head. Intense hops on the first sip then mellows out. A unique floral hop notes linger on the palate, slightly spicy and like nothing i have ever tasted. A great high powered session IPA. Highly addictive and perfection at its best. Bravo!
6-Pack in NJ, poured same clear yellow orange, minimal head. Same great freshness and flavors. It travels well, not cheap $14.99 for 6 12oz bottles. Well worth it. A flawless IPA

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
10/26/12. Bought 2 $3.39 bottles from CBO and was my first beer at wasabi.
Rated as one of the highest ipa's out there and I agree. Hazy gold with a very long-lasting full head. Very strong citrusy aroma and the taste follows the nose. Heading to My Favorites!
