Bomber. Pours a cloudy, almost murky dark amber with some gold highlights. Huge fruity nose with some pine there, too--nicely managed balancing of the two hop extremes. Body on the light side of medium, with just enough carb to round it out. Some resin comes through in the finish, but the mouth is more of the same from the nose--citrus and pine with enough malt backbone to complement them without getting in their way. Awesome stuff.

22 oz. bomber picked up at Corral a couple of weeks ago. big citrus aroma with a great looking pour of golden orange and very long lasting head and lace. flavor has a nice bitterness to it with all of the hop profile and just enough malt to tie it all together quite nicely. crisp and refreshing.

#1100 22oz. Bottle. Aroma of citrus grapefruit is there with out puting a nose in the glass. Golden body with good head and lacing. Some particles floating around. Good citrus grapefruit flavor along with a stong bitterness in the flavor also. Well balanced gives the dry citrus aftertaste of an IPA. Good Stuff, refreshing brew.

From 22oz Bottle. Pours a lush color of honeyed tangerines with a finger of bubbly white head. Pleasant aromas of sweet tangerines, a hint of rye seed, petunia petals, a little bit of honey, and a slightly bitter bite of cilantro seed - interesting hop and malt combination going on. Lightly carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel with a moderate hop bite. Medium spicy level with some malty gingerbread cookie flavors. Moderate hop bitterness with pink grapefruit and orange zest tones dominating. Final smack of light ginger and cinnimon spice. Clean, tasty balance between malt and hops overall.

This is an excellent IPA. Very fresh and aromatic. Very alcoholic. The hops are really complex in the final brew. I really appreciated the malt backing it up. Highly recommended. Much better that Boonville.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Bottle. Orange hazy color, a little lighter than Id like, with a few bubbles. Aroma of orange and to a lesser extent grass hops with some brown sugar. Smooth, smooth pine hoppy taste with a nice malt backbone and a pronounced but not overwhelming bittersweet finish.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
From the Columbus gathering, brought by Sliffy. Orange color with a light tan head. The aroma was grassy with some fruit, pine , sweet malt and alchohol. The flavor had a good amount of balance though a bit metalic at times. The hops came through in the front and then creep back in the finish...though the finish was a bit thin. Pretty decent brew overall.
