Notes: Once, there was a dictator so evil he forced upon the masses an industrial beer that had no soul. But then, one good-hearted man, or perhaps many posing as one, rose up and concocted a despot-dethroning flavor bomb that could save the world. Gamma Bomb IPA. A piney India Pale Ale. Exploding with hoppy goodness. Pull the pin.

Pours a deep amber with a small dense white head.
Aroma is very floral to me. Some citrus and pine as well.
Flavor of orange peel, melon, passion fruit. Finished dry with a slight pine bitterness.
Medium full mouthfeel with little carbonation.
Overall a decent IPA although not one I will be looking for again.

Purchased from Kroger as a single can for $1.99. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

L - Pours hazy orange with a one-finger sticky beige head that quickly dissipates.
S - Pine sap, citron, passion fruit. Hinting at honeysuckle.
T - I shit you not, this tastes like one of those Fry's Turkish Delight chocolate bars. Rosewater, lemon, pine sap, and honey. No real sense of malt here, but not bitter in the slightest. It's like a hop-bomb, minus the overly bitter notes.
F - Strong. Astringent. Very light carbonation. Full-bodied.
O - Although the score may reflect differently, this isn't close to being my favorite IPA. However, this one is tasty for sure. It'd pair with bar food or pizza-by-the-slice extremely well. It's enjoyable to drink, but it's pretty strong. I probably wouldn't drink more than one of these in a day, but it's a nice experience regardless. I wish it had more maltiness, though.

12 oz can at the 2019 Dublin Irish Festival. 11 June 2019 canning date stamp on the bottom of the can.
This is a bolder tasting IPA than the aroma suggests. The aroma and the flavor both suggest citrus fruits and baked bread. Moderately bitter for style.

Between Yellow and Orange in color. Smells tropical and tastes between fruity and tropical. I can taste a lot of citris and bit of maybe papaya and also a bit piny. Goes down nice

A tad pale for an IPA, with a slight golden hay color. Smells citrusy and sweet. Smell and aftertaste remind me of orange juice. Very bitter, overwhelms the fruit notes until the aftertaste. One of my favorite every day beers.

Look: Pours a thick, long lasting head. Hazy amber appearance.

Smell: Fruity, mostly citrus and hops.

Taste: Very bitter, enough to overwhelm the citrus flavor.

Feel: Body is surprisingly light for the intense bitterness.

Overall: Seems stronger than it should be, but tastes better at room temp.

Edit: Tastes better at room temperature, so adjusted score accordingly.

Smell like blueberry with spice, taste is very spicy, didn't get much coconut taste but was very good nonetheless.

American IIPA poured from a can into a Bruery tulip. I like the appearance (it's a nice hazy light orange), but the pour is a bit undercarbonated and even rough handling fails to produce much foam. The nose is delightful. Ripe oranges, peaches, some lemon rind, pineapple, and grapefruit.

The beer has a medium body and a flavor that follows the nose well up front. Lots of fresh toast and tropical fruit with a hint of marmalade sweetness, then around mid-palate some cedary, pine-like notes start to kick in. The hops intensify to a weedy, hemp-like abrasive pitch that makes me think there was some over-extraction here. Finishes dry and earthy, with bitter, sappy flavors lingering.

I'm no expert, but I think the brewer has the foundation of an excellent beer here and just got carried away with the hops. I like the fruity bitterness up front, but the oniony flavors on the back end are unpleasant on my palate. Still, I'm sure there are some who love it.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Hazy darkish gold, with fairly low visible carbonation and a thin white head that fades quickly.

S: Tropical fruits, resin, and citrus peel. A biscuity malt sweetness with mild caramel component. Some mild ethanol sweetness in the background.

T: Orange citrus and tropical fruits with mild pineapple. Resin and oily bitterness. Biscuit sweet malts, again with just a hint of caramel though it stops short of obnoxious. Modestly bitter in the hang - resin and more pith.

M: An average heft to the body for style. The alcohol seems a little prominent for this average ABV as listed. Carbonation sensation is a touch lower than average.

O: This is an IPA that drinks rather like a DIPA, and not necessarily in a good way. It isn't my favorite in its hop or malt bill. But it's decent. Scores given are to style, though my personal preference would likely be a bit lower.
