Pours cloudy dark amber with one finger sandstone head. nose is citrusy and hoppy with notes of peanut hull and pine. Similar flavor, piney with lots of peanut shell. Lasting bitterness and too much body. Needs to clean up a little.

Bottle shared by Tim from The Bottle Dispensary. Pours rich copper-orange with foamy but small white head. Nose is resiny, citrusy hops and a decent amount of sweet hops. Not as much citrus and tropical fruits as I hoped for. Taste comes through bracingly bitter. Pretty average.

22 ounce thanks to Seth. Little head. Flat malt bill. A bit underwhelming for the style. Maybe not very fresh either.

DiarmaidBHK (4429) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2011
Has a nice hoppy aroma. Pours amber with a thin white head. Doesnt leave a lot of lacing. Nice grapefruit on the tongue but theres obviously some maltiness balancing it out since its not overpowering which is too bad. Kind of thin on the finish.

raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2011
I had high hopes for this brew, got it on sale in IOP, SC, but it kinda sucks. Taste like heavy old bread and lots of booze, with a twangy after taste. I am only drinking it for the buzz at this point. Too bad cause there other beers are great.

Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is bready, grains and tropical fruit. Grainy flavor, yeasty, buttery. The off flavors actually take away from the hops. Bitter and dry but, im not sure if its just astringent or another flaw

topherh (1925) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bomber pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is caramel and old citrusy hops. Flavor is light sweet caramel, bitter, citrusy hops. Seems this might be old. No way to know with no date on the bottle, but this was "not a tongue-twisting treat for the hophead in me"

Amber pour with some lacing. Aroma is of sweet grapefruit, oranges, some caramel. Taste is slightly bitter, some grapefruit, orange, finish is crisp. Nice example of style.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours a reddish brown with small white head. Some particles suspended. Aroma is raisins, hops and some yeast. Medium body, good carbonation. Plenty of hops, grapefruit, some sweetness with a nice bitter finish, but not too overpowering. Overall a tasty IPA, especially if you like it on the hoppy side.
