Bomber from HH22... Nice pour: Light golden orange color, decent head. Fruity, piney and tropical hop notes. Caramel malt notes. Taste is the same... Light fruitiness, light grass, light tropical notes, with a nice caramel malt base...Bitter after taste, with some alcohol noticable. Medium body. Overall: Decent IPA. I dont know how fresh this is but I would drink it again. Thanks tim Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
12oz can. Rating #80. Bright orange/amber with a little haze and a nice lacing dirty white head. Mild aroma, light pine with grapefruit showing up in the finish. Nice bitter bite, mild citrus and no flaws, pretty good drinker actually. (1646) Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
Pours an orange color typical of IPA’s. Aroma is floral with hints of citrus possibly tangerine. Taste is a bit on the bitter side with a citrus and floral taste throughout. You can taste the malt and hops in the beer. This beer is for people who like a bitter beer. Overall sub-par in my book but I am not a huge IPA fan in the first place.

Big hop aroma. Golden coloured strong in alcohol and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a nutty and floral malt finish. headheldhigh (100) - Walnut, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
On tap this brew pours out a golden yellow with a nice head. Smells of hops pine trees and lemon peels. Tastes of California hops and citrus fruits. Don’t expect Pliny the elder Arrogant bastard or DFH 120 but a refreshing ipa. Went well with hot wings and smoked cheddar.

16 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma is nice and hoppy with pine and citrus orangey notes. Some grapefruit is pleasant, too. Nice aroma. Transparent copper-orange body with a small, off-white head present. Trace lacing. Starts lightly hopped with floral notes before this becomes very husky and toasted with lots of tannins in the middle. Finishes with a scant herbal hop character and light bitterness. Epic IPA, eh? The only thing epic about this is how forgettable it is... beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Pours orange in color. Aroma is strong and woodsy. Taste is strong too. But it stops heavy hopping midway through and has a solid set of flavors. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Tap at Mammoth mountain. Pours copper with a frothy off white head, nice lacing. Nice nose of citrus hops and caramel malts. Medium bitter on the finish. marcus (10466) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours light copper with a generous beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a sweet hearty caramel malt flavor with a citrus and pine hop bitterness. hayduke (5599) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 5, 2011
This 22-oz bottle came from from BevMo in Sacramento, CA. It poured a clear copper with very nice foamy off-white head that tended toward light yellow. Medium body and a very slick and oily mouthfeel The flavor is lightly roasted caramel malts with a big hop profile with a good dose of citrus, flowers, and pine hops. Lots of resin in this one. The finish is long, dry and bitter. I like this a great deal, and would serve with pride to any of my beer loving friends.
