The brew poured a light amber color, with 2 fingers of a bright white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma is pungent and consists of pine, mango, pineapple and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with only the slightest trace of a malt backbone. The beer is well carbonated and has a light-medium mouthfeel that finishes bone dry.

I had this beer at Original Gravity in San Jose and again at the Better Beer Garden during the SubZero festival. At Original Gravity it was $6 for a 16 oz pint. As the beer was set on the coaster, the first thing I noticed is the beautiful copper color, thin wispy head, and large CO2 bubbles racing up the sides of the glass. The nose is a little reserved, although there is a hint of danky hops. Upon the first sip, the palate is flooded with wonderful hop flavor, almost a little unexpected because the nose did not hint at all this hop flavor. Pleasant bitterness to balance the hop flavor with enough of a malt backbone to provide structure. This could easily be a 4.75 or 5.0 beer if it was dry hopped, but it is still worth trying if you find it on tap somewhere.

bomber into a tulip.

pours a dark golden color with a big 2 inch head. smell is very fruity and hoppy...impressive nose. taste starts out fruity but quickly turns hoppy and ends with a very bitter finish. ooh, nice! medium bodied, medium carbonation.

overall a very impressive IPA! recommended.
