Bomber. Don’t know if I’m influenced by price, but damn if this isn’t the best bang for the buck on a great West Coast hop bomb. Pours clear and reddish orange, with a 2 finger white head. Huge aroma of tropical fruit, dank resinous hops. Flavor is helped by the full mouthfeel, and with no pretense of balance it does however start off with a light sweet malt flavor before the hops come rushing in to assert dominance over all. Very very drinkable. Man I wish I had this available all the time, at this price I would always have some fresh bottles in the fridge.

Hazy orange brew, creamy head. Amazing hop aroma, loads of sweet citrus fruits, tangerine, sweet mango, floral, slightly soapy. Very bitter, citrusy and resiny flavor, clean malty and bitter bitterness. Smooth, crispy palate. Great.

All the good stuff, piney, grapefruit everything a great USA DIPA should be. Definately not a session beer, but a good dose of hops!!

Poured into an etched glass. Pours with a thick white head. Lots of sediment floating in the glass. The beer is hazy. I’ve never had a ipa so hazy! Aroma was of citrus hops. Flavor is pretty bitter and crisp. Palate is crisp and finishes dry. Overall a good iipa, just didn’t look all that on style.

Buena retención de espuma. Corona densa y consistente que dibuja un buen encaje de bruselas final. En nariz es floral y herbácea con reminiscencias a resina, uva verde, mango y cítricos. Vamos que practicamente es todo Columbus y Simcoe aunque se entienden notas de Amarillo y Cascade. (También dicen que añaden Centennial, yo no lo encuentro pero es difícil separarlo del Cascade, al menos para mi) Posiblemente se han añadido todos los lúpulos a partir del min 10 antes de KO pero no va descompensada como suele ocurrir en este tipo de Ales. Tiene una precipitación exagerada de proteina-levaduras?? ... pero no se nota nada en la boca, unicamente la estética del barrazo que a mi, personalmente me gusta aunque claro, no sé si envejecerá muy allá si todo eso son levaduras... Al final cuando la cerveza se ha oxigenado y pillado temperatura va perdiendo parte de la intensidad en sabor del dry hopping que era para vestirte de rana y armar una fiesta entre rizomas y rizomas de lúpulo y por fin aparece algo de sabor de malta. No sé si estaría de acuerdo el gato Mongo en dar su nombre a esta salvajada. Lo que estoy seguro es que se la tomaría sentado en un sofá y con un monóculo.

Very huge yellow head, pitting in over metallic orange beer. Nose of exotic fruit: pink grapefruit, papaya, passion fruit, rosewater, tangerine. Really bitter, but in a very fruity way. Grapefruit, citruszeste, hopoils galore, going into resiny/piney touches. Bitter green leaves. Sticky from the hopoils, medium bodied. A good one, without extravangances.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 22oz bottle. Pours clear copper-orange with huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is heavy citrus, pineapple, with peach and some vanilla. Big hop flavor, mostly pine, with subtle malt in the background. Dry finish with slight alcohol warming and lingering bitterness.
