Drink from a 1 pint, 6 fl. oz bottle
Served in a pint glass

The brilliantly clear, medium amber liquid was ever-so-slightly clouded by a bit of the conditioning yeast late in the pour. A fluffy, bright white, three-finger tall crown topped the beer. Minimal lacing. A few small streaks stuck along the glass.

The aroma was hoppy and really pleasant. Sweet, fruity hops dominated. Juicy and citrusy. Lots of candied orange peel. Some tropical fruit notes came through as well. Hints of mango and pineapple were detectible.

The flavor profile was also very hop forward. Tangerine and orange peel notes were quite apparent. Fruity and juicy. Grapefruit was noticeable. Hint of peach as well. The hops were balanced by a subtle, pale malt backbone. The beer finished crisp and dry. Moderately bitter with notes of grapefruit pith.

The mouthfeel was perhaps the least impressive aspect of this beer. It was lighter bodied and contained a spritzy effervescence. Nevertheless, the beer was still surprisingly creamy and smooth.

There are scores of new craft breweries popping up in my area, and most unfortunately put out some pretty mediocre products. Berkley IPA, however, is an immensely flavorful version of the style that drinks incredibly well, despite its formidable ABV. This could be a dangerously sessionable IPA.

It's been a long time since I've had a beer foam out of the bottle. This one was explosive. It stands to reason that there is a solid head that settles in a lumpy way. Plenty of spots on the glass as the beer goes down. Light gold color with a definitive haze bringing a bit of white to it.

Floral hop up front with yeast in the background.

Pale, grainy malt start but the hop kicks in during the swallow--darkly bitter with a heavy yeasty finish. Relatively thin for the style. The high carbonation doesn't help here. Surprisingly short aftertaste. Think overhopped homebrew.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Pours a really nice clear gold color with two fingers of thick fluffy white head, some good lacing on the side.
S - This gets better as it warms up, some bready and biscuit malt, some orange and lemon, floral hops, a hint of alcohol.
T - And this is where it goes down hill, you get some decent fruity sweetness, then it just goes to this assault of bready malt, very floury, the hops get lost in the mix and you barely pick up on their floral quality.
M - Very very dry but still a little chewy.
O - Its unbalanced with malt, there's a few nice traits to it, but correcting the malt would be a good move.
