A - Pale muddy body with two fingers on nice white dense head. Very nice retention and lacing.

S - Deep malts with a citrus tang

T - Lemon/lime citrus, and floral hops upfront. The flavor recedes to a caramel and earthy malt. I was concerned when reading the label that this is based on and English IPA, as I tend not to like the malt heavy EIPAs. But the malt is not as strong as expected and this beer lets the citrus hop shine.

M - Medium/light, with moderate/light carbonation. The body is thinner than expected which I think also lends itself better to the hops.

O - I'm liking this a lot more than expected. The hops stand out nicely against the malt base. And the body is light and refreshing. I will definitely gives this a go around again. (752 characters)

22 oz bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a medium white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet crystal malts and fruity, grassy hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts with some fruity grassy hops that have good bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, it has good bitterness but too much sweet malt and not good hop flavors. It's a bit vegetal too. (428 characters)

From taste notes. Appearance: brilliant dark gold to amber, 2” fluffy head dissipates to a film. Very finely bubbled head. Smell: malty, grassy citrus Taste: Light fruit and bread with a citrus rind hop accent on the finish. Lingering bread and citrusy hop aftertastes. Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to medium light body and carbonation. Overall: A very soft dry beer that would be good to serve with appetizers. (411 characters)

Bomber served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Hookiebobb is an amber orange color with very good clarity. The head is thin even with a straight-up pour.

Aroma is nicely hopped and fresh with pleasant orange and other citrus coming through.

Flavor is also enjoyable managing good balance between bitter hops and a mildly caramel-focused malt.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall a really solid IPA. Balanced and drinkable. It's good enough to make me want to try their other offerings so that's a good sign. (535 characters)

I love the hybrid of American and English styles in this beer. Great hop flavor with strong malty undertone without being 10% (125 characters)

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 7, 2015.

It is a straw yellow pour, vaguely cloudy, with a white foamy head. Some lacing. That part of the beer was the best part of the experience.

The aroma had little in the way of hops and smelled more like orange, apple, or pear. None of those citrus, grassy, floral hops I might have hoped for.

Light body.

The taste is basically the same as the aroma with a lot of fruit, some pale malts, but little else. (460 characters)

I picked this up at Cecil's in South Lake Tahoe. It is right above Stateline Brewery.

Appearance- clear copper color, pretty thick head

Smell- wonderful aroma of citrus and floral hops, piney hops too

Taste- very well balanced, citrus, floral hops

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought this beer was very good. It has an australian hop in it that I found very interesting. Very good beer! (404 characters)
