Picked up a bomber in South Carolina at a gas station...

A very solid IPA, nothing spectacular, but defnitley enjoyable. Pretty generic citrus notes in the nose, a little more subtle than I would prefer, very carmelly as well. A little more malt character than I like but relatively balanced. Give it a try, it may have been an old bottle. Cheers!

Big thanks to 67couple for unexpectedly sending this my way! Poured from a 22oz. bomber into my 7venth Sun tulip.

A - A great orange color, with a range from darker amber tones to toasted yellow. Lots of floaties congregate in the bottom immediately. A nice fluffy two-fingers of froth leaves sheets of lacing as I drink.

S - Nice gratefruit aromas instantly, with juicy fruits abounding. There's also a detectable malt presence, and a bit of a bready quality. Some earthy bitterness as well.

T - A melange of citrus to start, with some grassy hop bitterness as well. Caramelly malt and toast are at the transition point, with a finish of lingering bitterness that invites more tastes.

M - Rather dry after the swallow, but some good carbonation and a pleasantly light bodied brew.

O - A nicely balanced IPA, that is very refreshing at the moment. A very pleasant drinker that is not by any means intense or overwhelming with bitterness. Thanks Jon!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- A slightly hazy light orange with a one finger off white head.

S- Very crisp, sharp nose. A touch of citrus. A dry and plain malt backbone.

T- A clean beer at first. A plain malt backbone at first. A nice bitterness takes over and leads to a nice hop profile. There is a pungent citrus in this beer. A more herbal and garlicy hop profile but infused with fresh lemon and pineapple. A balanced hop to malt character. A nice drirnking an pretty well done IPA.

M- A good body and carbonation. Good balance. overall well done.

O- Not one to tell your friends about but a well done east coast style IPA.
