This is a solid IPA, and one I drink often. Poured 12 oz can into standard pint glass. Clear, golden amber color. Beautiful, foamy head with nice retention. Very nice lacing. The aroma is grain, oats, honey, peach and tropical fruit. The flavor is well balanced, a medium body, and the hops is citrus and dank. The malt is in the finish, leaving a sweet, pleasant aftertaste. Juicy and resinous without going overboard. A fine go to beer.

This is my go to when I want a good beer. I know I will never be let down by it. I'm no beer carnasuar or anything, but I know a good beer when I get it, and this is one damn fine brew.

Orangish coppery color, full on inch of head. Aroma yields substantial bittering hops that don't drop a lot of other smells.

Another very bitter ipa. Why is this in a bomber? So much metallic bitterness, lot of crystal malt, caramel etc. . . Oakshire makes some awesome stuff (Galaxy IPA) but this is markedly average. No off flavors, but really not a lot of flavors beyond metal, bitterness and caramel.

Amber with a decent white head. Nose is a bit piney with some rind. Taste is similar but resin is light. A touch of cat piss. Decent bitter linger, but not overwhelming. Body is medium light with moderate carbonation.

Look: Light clear yellow color. Clear and light head.

Smell: Very hop forward beer. Hints of citrus fruits.

Taste: Hop bomb beer. The hops are the show of the beer and has that slight grapefruit, orange taste to keep you drinking more.

Feel: Light, crisp, refreshing, hoppy.

Overall. Not a very balanced IPA but good enough to satisfy hop heads. Decent IPA
