Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bomber pours hazy light orange, kinda like the label actually! fair white head. Nose is sweet fruity hops, kinda like fruit cocktail. Flavor is assertive hop bitterness, cantalope, and grass, and some rubbing alcohol notes. Medium chewy body. Linger earthy bitter finish. Decent, especially for a fair price.

BelgianBeerGal (4020) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Local 22oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper colour with a short white head and spotty lacing. Nice, gentle aroma of mandarin oranges, grass, and citrusy northwest hops. Definitely not an overpowering flavour initially. Very light hops and some citrus notes but once the back of your tongue gets splashed the bitterness starts. Relatively long finish with lingering bitter notes. Okay for me but not one of my favorites.

Bronzed body with decent head. Definite presence of the Zeus hops in the nose and translating similarly to the flavor. Bitter aroma and flavor, accented with some crisp grapefruit rind. However, this brew goes down the gullet with relative ease. A medium powered IPA.

22oz bottle. clear orange under a small white head. peach, mandarin orange and apricot scents. a light bodied beer light to moderate carbonation. bitter and dry with only a light touch of the malt in flavor. apricot flavor comes to mind.

Bomber from Hop City, Atlanta. Ive never been the biggest fan of Full Sails IPAs. Theyve always struck me as competent but slightly deficient in character and complexity. This one, however, I kind of dug. Modest hazy gold pour, with a medium, creamy head. Nose was far less "aggressive" than the commerical description suggested. Clean, fruity, and dry, almost like a nice pils. Medium dry mouthfeel enhanced that impression. Flavor was more conventionally IPA-ish in its hop profile, but it still had something of the earthy bitterness in the finish that faintly recalled Stone 14.

Hazed orange-amber with a medium tan head. Aroma of orange, citrus, grains, orange rind, pale malt and mild sulfur. Taste is tropical with orange, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and mild floral hops. Moderate lasting bitterness.

LilBeerDoctor (3887) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, bitter hops, spicy hops, and less toastiness. Good IPA, but I think I prefer some of their other IPAs (Elevation and Hop Pursuit). 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Standard pale orange appearance, nice head, fairly clear. Aroma was a change, as non-standard IPA hops were used - big aroma of bitter hops, but instead of the classic C notes, there were lots of floral and earth components. Flavor matched - just enough malt to hold things together in a beer that focused on an unusual hop profile. Interesting, although not my all time favorite. As it warmed, anise and orange marmalade notes came through as well. Bonus points for originality.

DYCSoccer17 (3686) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-op. Has the same husky, grainy Full Sail house character that I have become very bored with. Some spicy, grassy hop aromas come through...perhaps some Nelson Sauvin? Smells reminiscent of Anchor Humming, and that is not good. Just sorta swampy. Modestly hazy copper body (perhaps chill haze) with a good whitish head and nice lacing present. Starts sweet before this becomes toasting and cloyingly sweet, milky, and generally repulsive in the middle. Finishes with some spicy, grassy hops. Some floral notes are also in there. This is just entirely fucked up and reminiscent of vomit. What ever happened to Full Sail?
