This was 1.99 at Trader Joe's.

Coppery hue to the yellow color. Very clear. Very little head, no lacing.

Not much on the nose. After a quick swirl, I detect some sour hops, and a nice whiff of alcohol.

More alcohol on the palate. Was there any grain that went into this beer? Some wet grassy hops, very little malt flavor to speak of. Metallic pepper mixed in as well.

Slightly under carbonated, thin mouthfeel. Alcohol twang sits around. Not good.

Overall I don't know what I was expecting for a $2 bomber. I guess I saw "Wisconsin" and automatically thought it would be at least drinkable. I'd have been better off drinking a hunk of their cheese.

I bought a bottle of Boatswain Twin Screw Steamer in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a copper/gold color, clear with a creamy white head.

Smell is sweet soft fruit aroma. Melons and pears, not the pine and citrus aroma one might expect.

Taste is sweet and mildly bitter at the same time. The sweet in a soft fruit flavor, and then a dry bitter finish. Not the citrus flavor of the style.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, wet and slightly cloying.

Overall an unusual representation of the style. A little too sweet for my liking.

3.09/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, couldn't find a date. Pours a bright orange with a one inch off white, that leaves some traces of lace. Smell is odd, turpentine, orange, pine, and cloyingly sweet. Taste is a little better, not bitter as you expect, the alcohol isn't as strong, some tropical flavors, and grapefruit. Body is medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and once you get past the odd flavors it goes down o.k. $2.49 a bomber and I know why, it could be worse, but not much.

I don't know I guess I had to see what a $2.98 IPA taste like. I knew it would be to good to be true but I am in Seattle..curiosity killed the cat for sure. A Natty Light drinker might be impressed! Great for trick or treat or a spoof on your best friend.
