Thanks to my 2012 Secret Santa Montrosse for sending this beer my way. The beer was chilled and into a tulip it went.

A- The body of the beer is clear honey colored. The head is thick and white with major retention. Thick lacing marks this beers passage from my glass.

S- The hop aromas lead with floral notes giving way to fruity apricot, grapefruit and pine bringing in the rear.

T- The beer leads with a little sweetness that is swallowed up in pine resin and nowhere near the amount of fruity flavors. Bitterness is more than adequate to tame the malt. No alcohol noted in the flavor.

M- The body is medium and well carbonated. No alcohol is noted to the mouthfeel.

O- Not a bad beer drink but I will look elsewhere for my hop fix.

From the Bomber into the Tulip Pint

A - Bright gold, orange around the edges. Has a nice 1-1.5" head that disappears slowly. Leaves nice lacing throughout.

S - Fresh hops, big pine, resinous. Grapefruit and citrus. A little bread malt.

T - Big hops initially. Very little malt comes through, which is fine by me. Citrus, grapefruit, pine; all hoppy goodness.

M - Light-Medium body. Good carbonation. Very very drinkable.

O - Wonderful IPA. Great value as well. Seriously up there with the best.

Poured into tulip glass

A- pours a bright, clear yellow-orange color with creamy white head leaving outstanding thick patches of lace around the rim.

S- bright citrus hops with notes of grapefruit and lemon-grass, a bit if sweet bready-ness lies beneath the hops.

T- follows nose for the most part, some citrusy hop with some grassy tones, also a bit of fresh mint, the malt lies underneath providing a bit if sweetness. Flavors are well balanced and not overpowering making this one very drinkable.

M- medium body with perfect level of moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth and velvety finish. Hides alcohol very well as it is barely detectable.

O- very drinkable for the ABV, well balanced with a smooth finish, good stuff.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into Lagunitas glass

A - poured a orangey golden with a healthy 1-1/2 head. nice head retention and decent lacing. a 1/4" cap remains after the head dissipates.

S - Grapefruit, pine resin, and lingering citrus. small amount of breadiness.

T - hops hit you up front with a solid citrus background. the hops are followed by a sweet maltiness and a dry finish. as the beer warms the caramel maltiness is more evident.

M - Medium bodied, good carbonation, overall nice but much warmer as the beer approached 55*.

O - a solid representation of the style, big hop profile and half the price of most others of similar qualities. Would highly recommend to people looking for strong hop profile at an affordable price..$4.29 for a 22oz bomber!

Pours light amber color, white single finger head. Great balance of malt and hops. Has that warm imperial texture with sweet fruity finish. Piney and citrusy with subtle dry hoppy finish, subtle dark fruit finish too. Like everyone says, can't pass a try for the price.
