The last of the three bombers I bought a few days ago. No apparent bottle date or abv. listed.

Look- Pours a very clear gold color with some soapy white foam.

Smell- Passion fruit, grapefruit, and some fresh rubber-like aroma.

Taste- Flavors of passion fruit, grapefruit rind, and some alcohol in the finish.

Feel - Not quite as thin as the other two IPA's I've tried from them. A little dry in the finish.

Overall- This is probably my favorite of the three IPA's I recently purchased. Nice appearance, aroma and flavor. I'll definitely buy more of these.

The name and aesthetic of this brewery seem to suggest their target market is middle age moms who go on the Kid Rock cruise: camo colors, with datura print that looks like bad tattoos. But whatever.

The beer was on tap at a Gary Rail Cats game, where Devil's Trumpet has their own booth. The woman told me that My Ghetto was their flagship and offered me a sip. It was pretty good, so I got a whole pint.

And that, my friends, is why you should never judge based on a taster pour. A full pint revealed the beer to be rather home brew-y: the hop profile was off: citrus bitterness at first, but then plastic and medicine in the back end. The beer's greatest fault, however, was its very weak body, which dragged down the middle and accentuated the hop's offness.

This might have been a bad batch. I dunno. It was pretty bad, though.

Froths up initially to close to three fingers of semi-dense foam, very light tan to eggshell white color, retention is about where it should be, lacing is sparse though. Very viscous liquid, looks like puree, warm apricot orange to yellow color, somehow you can still see a few bubbles zipping upwards. Thick dankness to the nose, wet leafy matter, damp forest earth, almost to the point of decay, tar, pine sap, more yeasty than bready, a spoonful of honey helps to get the peach, nectarine to pineapple fruit scents above a whisper. Full-bodied, the carbonation works it hard but it remains too bottom heavy to do more than slog across the palate. The dank hops predominate here to but to a more reasonable extent. A bit of pink grapefruit sweetens it some, cocoa powder, peppery and the pine element more assertive. The pineapple, nectarine, peach fruit quiet and lacks length. For an IPA you expect more refreshing qualities and more general verve. Got tired drinking near the end of one 12 ounce bottle.

Pours a beautiful copper color, with just the slightest bit of haze, and a soapy light tan head. Lovely beer. The nose has some piney notes, but the citrus aromas are more prominent with tangy tangerines at the forefront, and there's also a substantial malt component that adds some caramel flavors.

The taste is led by the tangerine flavors, which are substantial and really nice, and the malt flavor helps cut the bitterness really nicely. This leans toward the West Coast-style, I just wish the mouthfeel was a bit drier per that style.

22oz bottle poured into a pint, not bottle date

A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a one-finger foamy white head that sticks around for a while, lots of sediment settling to the bottom

S- nice mix of tropical and citrus hops with notes of mango, orange peel, grapefruit & pineapple. Underlying doughy malt

T- big blast of citrusy and tropical hop flavors up front with notes of mango, passionfruit, grapefruit and orange zest. Some grassy notes at the mid-palate, the finish is slightly malty sweet with a longer of more citrusy hops

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns creamy into the finish, high drinkability

O- 100 IBU bit not overly bitter, nice citrusy hops mix, very good
