Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our version of a West Coast Style IPA. There are 12 pounds of hops in every 7-barrel batch, with a solid malt backbone to hold up to the bitterness and hop flavor. Bright amber with orange hues and a dense rocky off-white head. The nose smells of pine and grapefruit with earthy notes and a hint of tropical fruit. The roundness of the malt carries the flavors through this hop-forward beer. The bitterness is persistent to the dry, clean finish.

Poured on draft into a pint glass at The Union Diner in Laconia NH. Pours a dark orange with a one inch white head that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is tangerine, apricot, honey, pine, and grapefruit.

Taste follows nicely some tropical fruit upfront, a little hones and biscuit in the middle, with pine and grapefruit in the clean finish.

Mouthfeel is less medium, plenty of life, not dry at all, and easy drinking.

Overall this is a nice IPA, a great beer to start people into hoppy beers.

There's nothing really bad about this beer, but there's nothing outstanding either. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Pretty restrained aroma of mostly citrus fruits and maybe some sweet malts. Taste is mostly citrus fruits and maybe a touch of pine. I didn't get pine in the aroma, but I taste it a little. Mouthfeel is medium with decent carbonation. I would say the bitterness is light. Very drinkable IPA for sure, but doesn't stand out in a crowd.

From tap at brewery, served in chilled pint.
A= Some haze, amber colored with a thick white head.
S= You can smell the malt sweetness with a slight piney hop aroma.
T= Caramel and some toasty malts, nice pine and earthy hop flavor, subtle bitterness balanced by the malt. Citrus notes perceivable in the aftertaste.
M= Feels full, but remains refreshing. Nice level of carbonation.
O= This is a tasty east coast version of a west coast IPA (there description). Would definitely drink again, goes great with their BBQ.

Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Pours a cloudy orange some yeast floating around, 2 fingers of off white head, mild lacing.
S - Good aroma, lots of ripe tropical fruit, mango, and papaya, sweet malt, a little floral.
T - Good flavor, those tropical notes are there from start to finish, mid front you get some dry bitterness, some floral notes, a little bready and sweet malt.
M - Chewy and full, somewhat dry soapy finish that lingers, being the downside.
O - Very good IPA, the aroma is the best part of this beer for sure.

A - pale amber and just a bit hazy. Nice retention and lacing

S - Caramel and citrus

T - More of the malty caramel and breadiness. Floral and pine hops.

M - Moderate to low carbonation. Thin but resinous

O - Bit too thin and watery for my liking. Definitely a good balance of the malt and bitters but needs more flavor, depth, and body.
