With all the good IPAs out there this one is mentionable. Nice citrus hoppy blend with a dangerously drinkable body and nice head. Growler

Bomber from hopsleeroy - thanks, Lee! Deep golden orange pour, with a cloudy center and an overall brightness at the edges. Nice fluffy head and medium lacing. Nose is initially sweet but soon reveals itself to be quite dry and bitter. Full mouthfeel, slightly prickly palate. Flavors are robust but very dry and crisp, shot through with citrus rind and hints of florals. Good one.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Charleston. Arrived at the table a very hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left ample lace. Very pleasant aroma of fruity grapefruit. The flavor begins with malt and is followed by some citrus fruit hops. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. A bit of biscuit emerges in the aftertaste, especially as the beer warms a bit. Very nice!

cfrancis (3407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2011
Got this in a great BIF package. Pours foggy golden with a quickly disappearing white foam and good lacing. Aroma is faint but mainly piney hop and mild malt aroma. Taste is a moderate hop bitterness, citrus with a little floral, pretty well balanced. Solid IPA but nothing earth shattering.

From notes: The color is golden auburn. The smell is good, but pretty much all pine. That fades a bit later and a grapefuit aroma comes in. The taste is good. Solid tasting ipa. I guess just given all the talk about this beer I would have thought it was better than this. It’s not terrible by any means. But, it certainly didn’t sweep me off my feet. The mouthfeel is okay. And, the drinkability is good.
