Hazy orange, moderately large head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is strong PNW goodness with notes of grapefruit, pine, grass, caramel. Medium bodied with a load of bitterness, light alcohol in the finish. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Very cookie cutter, but very well made. More plz.

Warm, dark golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped with notes of citrus and fruit. The flavour is smooth and nice, but it also has a nice, fruity hop-bite and a nice caramel foundations and a citrussy finish. It makes me think of Mikkeller Stateside.

Draft pours a nice cloudy gold. The glass laced beautifully. The aroma was a bit mild with only faint hops. The flavor however was full and hoppy! There were some hints of citrius and orange in there. The finish was long and bitter and very dry. This is what an IPA should be! Tasty!

I really enjoyed this beer. Good head and lacing. Wonderful hops aroma. Good hinting of malt and some light fruit hints. The flavor doesn’t last long though. Overall a great beer

Nose of pine, flowers, perfume, and dried fruit. Pours a sparkling golden with yeastmen floating about. The nice cascade resolves into a tight sticky off white head that is fully lasting and leaves fair lace. The brew is primarily bitter, but maintains a good balance. Moderately acidic with decent complexity and a rockin’ finish. The perfect body is medium, dry, and lively. The finish feels astringent. Very well done.

Bomber purchased at From the Vine. Maybe it is not fair to drink this the day after my first 3 Floyds Dreadnaught. This is a soild IPA. Good hoppiness and the bitter hangs around nicely. This is not the best IPA I have drank but for the price it may be the best bargain you will find in an IPA.

Bottle. Pours a deep gold with very little head. The aroma is a little sweet but overwhelmed by the hoppiness. Has a smooth palate with a bit of a bite right at the end of the swallow. A very hoppy beer. Quite sour with a nice grapefruity taste.

Bomber, with thanks to kujo9, pours a clear orangish golden color with an ample white head, good lacing. Great hoppy aroma of orange/citrus, pine, floral and a hint of caramel. A slightly milder than expected hops bite, but very clean, crisp and quaffable. Palate is medium mouthfeel and carbonation. This is a very solid and well done IPA. Thanks again, Mike!

Thanks dirty_martini! pours clear amber with lots of big floaties and a nice lasting white head that leaves good lacing. aroma citrus light pine and caramel. flavor bitter citrus light pine and a nice underlying caramel sweetness. bitter finish that is slightly weak compared to the flavor.. the hops are there it just seems like they are a bit weak and the malt isnt there to back them up. solid standard ipa. i really want to try this one again. the floaties were kind of a turn off and i wonder if this bottle just wasnt quite up to par.

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Very good crafted IPA. Great deep color, nice head, lacing, and aromas. Hops are prevelant in aroma and bitterness, but also has a nice malt backbone. Good complexity, but lacks the super punch at the end. Good to try, but not worth the $ or the hassle of huge bottles.
