Bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a beautiful hazy orange/copper. One finger head resolves to leave a little bit of foam and a hefty lacing.

S: Smells like a nice toasty caramel with some floral undertones. Fairly mild and no hint that it's an IPA.

T: Not for the hophead. A balanced combination of mild citrus, toasty malt and orange. Pretty tasty, just tastes more like a wheaty pale than an IPA. Gets a good bit breadier as it warms.

M: Somewhat thick, but simultaneously crisp and refreshing. A decent session ale with minimal alcohol sensation.

O: Just too bland and lacking in hop flavor as an IPA for me. Decent if you want an unfiltered pale, though. Ultimately delicious and well brewed.

A - Pours with half a finger of white foam on top of a hazy, copper body. The head fades away quickly and leaves only minor traces of lace.

S - Fruity hops with notes of melon and lemon as well as some bready malt and toffee.

T - Sweet, grainy malt up front with a hint of floral hop flavor. The hop essence increases slightly in the middle as more toffee and yeasty bread pile on. Some fruity hop flavor comes out in the finish, but is quickly plowed under by lots of thick, rich malt which overpowers the modest bitterness.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly sweet finish.

D - This is a pretty nice, very drinkable beer but it is kind of an anemic IPA. The hop aroma is noticeable, but not nearly as pungent as a hop lover would hop it might be and the flavor profile is thoroughly dominated by the malt. This all makes for a very nice pale ale, and it could be a great IPA if it had about 4x as much hop character as it does.

A > Pours a medium-light amber, small white head that doesn't last too well.
S > Aroma is light, fruity (pears, grapes), mildy hoppy (floral, pine).
T > Flavor starts slightly fruity (mostly pears), middle is thin, ends mildly hoppy.
M > Medium body, mild carbonation.

Bought this on a whim..5 bucks..not worth it though

Enjoyed in a pint glass on 10-8-11.

Pours an orange rust color with a semi-clear consistency and a resilient head. Nose carries a mild but zesty lemon citrus and floral sweet aroma. Tasty ripe orange and lemon citrus acidity really hits the palate with a well-rounded bitterness. Sessionable IPA for sure...
