Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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, even Double IPAs are less dominated by bitterness.

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.

Yellow amber in color with a white head. Big pine and resin aroma. Huge hop flavor with tons of pine and some citrus. Huge resin and hop flavor. Very enjoyable with a lovely bitterness.
