Bottle bought from trader joes under a different name. Taste is hoppy at first like a standard americn IPA. very well balanced and good. Enjoyed this Aurelius (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Consumed under the moniker of Boatswain American IPA. Powdery, lightly sweet, nutty?, vague caramel aroma without much in the way of hops. Not an AIPA aroma at all, but OK. Standard US bomber, throwback label with 1800s typesetting. Clear, dark tea brown, an extemely clingy, thin, saltine-colored head. Metallic and overbrewed, moderately sweet. Medium body, loses carbo. *Weeps* - it was only $2.49 for 22oz! How can you screw that up?!?!? Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee. swanmann (778) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 14, 2013
bomber from Trader Joe’s in Santa Rosa: it’s clear and rich burnt orange with about an inch and a half of web-y, fluffy foam. It smells mostly of caramel. The taste is caramelly sweet with a slightly sour brown note; some aspirin type bitterness dries out the effect slightly. Nickytoethumbs (12) - - OCT 14, 2013
This beer is alright - nothing special, just a decent beer to enjoy on a weeknight.

11 oct 2013, bottle. Orange, clear, some bubbles. Nose is sweet raisin malt. Med body and a tad fizzy. Kind of apple raisin malt. Meh.

Another bomb(er) from Trader Joe?s. Pours amber. Light head, bitter flavor. Nothing special here. shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Long Island, NY - 22 oz. bottle poured a clear amber color with a little white head. Aroma was way too malty for an IPA with no hops to be found. Taste was excessively malty and dank. I don't know what else I should have expected from a 3.99 bomber. Horrible beer.

22oz bottle, Boatswain American IPA, thanks Peregrinari. Crystal clear copper body with medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, strawberry, some caramel, light vegetal. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, caramel, some orange, resin. Medium body, low carbonation. Not great, but not terrible. Still, hardly seems like an IPA. scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bomber from Trader Joe’s - as Boatswain American IPA. Amber pour. The aroma is faintly malty, with a whiff of alcohol. Moderately bitter throughout, dusty old hops, brown sugar, not much flavor. Nero55 (944) - Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle. Light amber with small white head. Some light aromas of hops and some malt sweetness. Light body with some hop bitterness upfront with a sweet finish. Too sweet and not enough hops for an IPA.
