Bomber, from that unbelievable Beer Pimp, Brian. Poured a deep red amber with a small sudsy white lace. Nose has a lot of perfume and floral notes with some tropical and citrus fruits going on. Nice apricot-grapefruit hop taste, with just a mild astringent bitter finish. The hops are more tasty than bitter. The after is lightly dry, with a nutty bitter character and mild sweetness. Overall flavour has a well balanced tropical fruit, yet hop bitterness. Well made beer.

Pours a rusty amber orange color with a small head. Nose is a deep sweet citrus with a nice scents of pine. Taste is sweet with bustling citrus, quite full of flavor and taste. Finishes sweetly with a nice bitter citrus ending. Quaff Score 8 / 10

DATE REVIEWED: August 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: enjoying a nice haul from our State College weekend...APPEARANCE: clear, red amber body that streams a steady effervescence; dirty white head settles from a solid finger to a creamy resilience flaring with sunbursts of lacing--great to look at... AROMA: brilliant botanical array of lilac, carnations and grass; secondary scents of spices such as allspice and nutmeg--invitingly complex... PALATE: mellow, medium-bodied and drinkably relaxed; a thin yet consistent aftertaste holds to the back of the throat; creamy, if anything... TASTE: a solidly established pale ale, though not big enough for the India moniker--well-rounded, perhaps, by the soft, sweet malts that balance every sip; the malts--creamy, buttery--escort blunted hops along the journey, with a sessionable invitation... OVERALL: although a pleasant sipping beer, I find it tough to call this IPA anything beyond above average, as so many breweries are setting thee bar so high in this style...still, tough to slam a beer that is aesthetically pleasing and delivers on its promise with enough balance to convince--albeit temporarily--that the overhopped IPA is not the way to go ....

DrBayern (1140) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Bottle from Brian shared with my tasting buddies. Coppery amber with a solid off white head. Big pine and citrus aroma over a toffee background. Medium body and carbonation, quite dry with a lingering bitterness. The hops come on quickly with lots of bitterness supported by a study caramel sweetness. A very nice IPA in the West Coast tradition.

Courtesy of gunhaver. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is malty sweet with crystal malts, some citrus hops and a bit of earthiness. The taste has some pine and citrus with a decent hop flavor and a nice layer of hop bitterness. Dries out a tad into the finish creating a good balance for this tasty brew.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Transparent deep golden bronze color with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and a touch of pale malty sweetness. Body starts with good fullness and a nice amount of sweetness which is well-balanced with the resiny bittering and flavor hops before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A nice, very drinkable IPA.

Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2009
Well served very cold this beer is awesome. A honey amber body with a white head. Rich pine and citrus with a nice full hoppy honey character. As it warms the caramel comes out a bit more and its less impressive.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Draft, then bomber. Pours deep brownish ruby with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is juicy hops, fruit, caramel malt, mild peppery notes. Tastes rich, with a solid caramel malt bill, earthy, fruity hops, and a complex finish. Leaves you wanting more.
