RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber. Slight white head and spotty white lacing. Grassy, citrus aroma. Taste is cereal, bread, light bitterness. Overly malty. Meh.

pineypower (3171) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours out an odd dark reddish/brown color with a small white head, this is a nice looking beer, but not typical IPA look. Aroma is way too much bready, doughy, caramel malts with an odd dirt/fresh cut grass hop mix and maybe some old citrus fruits. Taste is watery, herbal tea, bread, caramel, mild grass, spicy hops, some lingering herbal bitterness.

dmac (5827) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
22oz bomber from Canals Fire Road EHT. Poured far darker than most IPAs. Clear yet slightly watery rusty amber body with a foam bubble white head. Aroma is earthy, dirty hops, older citrus fruits and a touch of chocolate. Thinner body with average carbonation and chalky finish, light carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, rotting oranges, earthy. Not bad nut the more I sip it the less I like it.

Cybercat (5322) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a clear, dark, brownish amber, almost mahogany, with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is not particularly strong but has hoppy and fruity components. Decidedly hoppy flavor is mainly woody with a subtle citrus and apple undertone. Texture, though fizzy, lacks firmness. If not a great IPA, certainly worth a fair shake.

jtw (1161) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2013
a nice dry-hopped aroma of citrusy cascade hops atop a fluffy head atop a hazy golden amber. green and piney, with a bit of malt and no discernible alcohol heat. medium bodied and milder in the flavor than aroma, at least hops-wise and it finishes a relatively dry and clean grapefruit. very nice, and definitely lighter fare than some of the other IPAs around. Id like to see this in a six-pack rather than bomber bottles...

RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bomber. Ugly looking amber with lots of stuff. Hop and pine aroma. Spicy hop taste. Not really my thing.

Decent aroma and active amber pour with a simple but smooth taste and small aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In a tulip out of the bottle. One of many MI beers I'm trying after a trip. A classic cascade hop IPA. Tasty but not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by TheMattTucker

Bomber. Amber with lots of particulate. Spicy hops. Hoppy at the end. Not my favorite of the series.

Tmoney99 (13891) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.
