Thanks goes out to beerwolf77 for this brew.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice cloudy dark golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, citrus, and pine notes. The taste is slightly sweet, a pretty nice hoppy note, with some nice malts thrown in, citrus, and some pine notes. Medium body, slight chewyness, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Drinkable, a pretty tasty IPA.

I hate the label on this beer, stupid troll. Beer is slightly hazy and dark yellow in color. Not much of a head but what little head there is sticks to the glass. No lacing. Carbonation is low and made up of largish bubbles. Kind of boring looking honestly.

Smells like an IPA. Malty with a strong grapefruit hop backbone. Aroma is not in your face but its pretty appropriate for the beer.

Beer is medium to low bodied, there is a slight sweetness up front and a lot of bitterness in the back. There is some midpalate connectivity with the citrus / fruity hop flavors. This is a nice sessionable IPA. Slight sulfur in the second taste doesn't really detract from it much. Overall a good beer.

A: poured an opaque apricot peach orange with yellow highlights that had good retention and a white bubbly head but it didi leave a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: It definitely had nice piney grassy hop character with good caramel malt presence along side slight citrus and some underlying booze.

T: the hop profile was pretty piney grassy like the nose with citrus grapefruit accents that help propel the bitter bite but it did have a good balance and sweetness from the caramel malts.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, citric, bitter hop, and sticky finish.

D: it drank really good but I'm glad that I was able to drink a more fresh version to compare how the hops have died out through time. Definitely a beer to try fresh.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this beer.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-brown color with a white head. The aroma is orange citrus and pine with a tad bit of malt. There is no doubt this beer is an American IPA. The flavor is resiny, piney and orange citrus hops with some bready malt. I also get some earthy hops. The citrus characteristics taste like orange juice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A great big thanks to lightindarkness for trading this to me and giving me the chance to taste this fine brew. I'm a big fan of harvest ales, and this is a nice one from one of my favorite breweries. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with a head that fades to a thin cap but leaves some spotty lacing.Beautiful fresh hop smell, herbal and citrusy and maybe even a touch vegetal- but pleasantly so. Taste has similar herbal notes as well as some citrus, but here there is much more of a piney note and the herbal notes don't go so far as to be vegetal. Nicely integrated, and somewhat soft in the mouth up front, there is a slight spiciness and herbal bitterness at the end. Very easy to drink, delicious.

Inflatablechair brought this one over recently.... Thanks Sam! This one tasted Uber-Fresh!!

Pours hazy deep golden/orangish... very nice head and retention.

Nose shows bright hoppiness reminiscent of thick fresh cut grass and plenty of pine... smells resinous with some background grainy malts that helps push the hops up and out of the glass.

Flavor has just bits of pine up front that quickly move into waves of weedy funky grassy hops.. some pithy citrus lets you know it is definitely American.. reminds me of alot of the other FFF hop forward beers, but that is NOT a problem... some pale malts play well with the hops.. I think this was from our 10/10/10 tasting.. The "freshness" was a big player.

Thanks Sam for not bogarting this one. ;-)

Poured from a bottle recently brought back by a friend from work (who was lucky enough to be at the brewpub a couple weeks back).

Pretty tasty IPA, with a nice balance of sweet malt and hoppy goodness in the finish. The beer has some interesting green, leafy tobacco notes in the nose and on the palate, which I assume represents the wet hop character in this beer. The finish is dry, hoppy and clean otherwise, in what comes across as a pretty big mouthful of IPA. There are better wet hop IPA's out there, but regardless, this is a very well made, easy to appreciate (if you're a hophead) IPA.

Very nice beer...

A - Pours a crisp gold color, moderate carbonation with very tight bubbles, and a one fingered creamy white head.

S - Light caramel malt with a big citrus rind, pine notes with some pineapple sweetness.

T - Spicey caramel malt hits the tongue prior to the pineapple sweetness followed with a big wave of grapefruit bitterness at the very end. The spicy character sort of reminds me of a garlic/onion, but just a huge and mildly present. Finishes semi-dry and leaves a viscous and resiny fruit citric coating in the mouth that lingers for a few minutes. The aftertaste is similar to chewing a sticl of JuicyFruit gum. It's like a big fruit basket!

M - Medium body.

D - Balance isn't really there but then again, it wasn't brewed for that.

Definitely worth trying.
