2.71/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a clear pint glass. No freshness date. Paid $3.99 on sale at local grocer.

A-Clear copper amber with about a one finger, off-white head with modest retention and lacing.

S-Citrusy hops and caramel malts. Faint aroma is too malt dominant and more like an APA. At 105 IBUs and 7% ABV this beer is enigmatic. And, not very good.

T-This is bitter. Just bitter. Don't care for this.

M-Is difficult to discern beyond the overwhelming bitterness. What the Frankenlou was the brewer thinking? I should probably rate this lower, but I am a homer.

O-This is not good at all. Almost a drain pour, since giving me heartburn.

Poured from a 22oz bottle...

A: Slightly cloudy, rich, red amber color with a nice fluffy, off white, two finger head. Leaves excellent lace on the sides as the head recedes, and lace stays on the glass as I drink it down.

S: Beautiful hoppy aromas... Lots of pine and citrus rind... spicy. Faint malt sweetness appears under all this hoppy character, with a slight caramel note.

T: Taste follows the nose... A light burnt toast front is quickly over run by the pine needle resin, hoppy punch to the back of the tongue. The pine flavor stays... in fact, seems to intensify in the aftertaste. A little more malty sweetness would have been wonderful, but this beer is designed for Hop Heads.

M: Medium, sticky, creamy feel that is quickly wiped clean by the tongue drying bitterness of the hops. Nice balanced carbonation. Overall nice feel, but the aftertaste hangs on a little long.

D: I've never considered myself a Hop Head, but that may change... I liked this beer. A little long in the aftertaste, but this could quickly grow on me.

22 oz bomber from Roth's Sunnyside store, S.Salem.$3.99
This appears to be the same beer..but it is 7% and a regular IPA.
Quite dark amber for the typical IPA, with a gorgeous creme coloured thick frothy head.
Hoppy hoppy aromas of course it is 105 IBUs.Spicy,herbal type mostly.
Extremelly bitter,piney hop flavour far more than the nose let on.After the first sip though the tongue becomes aclimatized and its a very nice long piney delicious bitterness.Malt is very strong also but no enough to balance the hop.
OK mouthfeel..not the greates but far from bad.
Overall a very hoppy IPA from 7 Brides. Good stuff if your a hophead.
