COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied and noticeably more amber in color than most California IPA. Our flagship IPA is bursting with fruity hop character, balanced well by a rich, silky body. The Simcoe hop makes itʼs distinct presence known with pine and passionfruit notes with Cascade filling in. Itʼs hop aroma is complex and hearty, and is mirrored in the palette. This IPA has a pronounced malt profile with a touch of caramel showing, yet the beer finishes dry. The bigger body gives more of a base for the hop character to grow from, and more to balance.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy orange gold with an off-white head. The aroma has a very complex set of hops. Med + body. Flavor is lightly roast caramel, with hops that are fruity, citrus, earthy. I think one could pull out about any flavor from this beer. D..n good drink.

3.8
Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear gold body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of malts and a light degree of hops that are grassy, a bit of pine, some floral and a dash of lime peel. The taste begins with an even hoppiness that’s pine and floral and grassy all at once where there’s a good bit of hop bitterness going on. To midway a little bit of malts rise up to meet the bitter hops and mild flavor hoppiness and take this into the finish. Interesting take where it isn’t so much juicy but rather resiny with a decent malt base.
