Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours cloudy golden with an attractive white head and a citrus aroma. There is a robust caramel malt flavor with significant hop bitterness and a dry chalky finish that remains on the palate. bhensonb (15079) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 6, 2012

500mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, soap, some herbal notes, Belgian yeast, and hay. Flavour is very Belgian-esque, with lots of yeast, very dry floral hops, some feint horse blanket and hay-like malts. Very dry and Belgiany, executed very well. Leaves a very dry and very bitter aftertaste. Great, highly quaffable IPA.

Bottle. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some pine hops that are joined by grapefruit and a bit of a musty grain backing. Flavor is much more dank with pine and grapefruit with a light grain backbone. DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bomber from Blue Dog, and I made sure to light check this one as I had already rated the black version. The pour was chill hazy morning urine yellow with 2-finger frothy white head that clang and laced well. Nose is great; huge hops, black pepper, florals, pineapple, orange marmalade, honey, tangerine. Tastes semi-dry, very floral, peppery, with a lot of pineapple, black pepper, mango, and a complex finish and overall palate. This one is great, but be cautioned that the finish is super bitter and IBU-laden, which is a good thing to me.
