Ok i should have known from obvious marketing ploy here, but i just couldn’t resist. I love a good refreshing dry hopped ipa. This was not that. Starts off with a decent malt back bone and ends extra bitter and earthy. There is a little bit of balance until u swallow and then u have a mouth full of garden weeds. Yuck. Made it bout halfway thru this one, but the last sip not nearly as bad as the first. BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bomber on 8th Feb 2017 while on holiday in California. What a load of bollocks on the label. Slight haze to the golden amber body, full head on both pours. Hop centric with a citrus leaning in both the aroma and taste. Semi-bitter and easy drinking beer, no where near as hop bitter as I expected to be honest. islay (3004) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2017
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-11-17. Pours a cloudy bronze with a moderate amount of beige head. Light to moderate effervescence. Good lacing. Pungent aroma of mineral water, herbs, and pine. Malty taste features flavors of resin, mint toothpaste, and Orange Julius. Lightly bitter finish. Pretty darn dirt-bitter aftertaste, which I like. Medium to full body. Frothy in the palate. Perhaps past its prime; I don’t know. Old-fashioned, East Coast IPA with a nod toward modernization. A below average IPA overall. gripweed57 (2863) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep gold color topped by a moderate sized frothy beige head. Toasted malt nose with a big citrus hop bouquet. Some caramel malt up front, but the hops are all over it. Notes of pine, resin and grapefruit. Middle is all hops with citrus and spice. Finishes bitter with black pepper notes.
