22oz Bomber

Recieved in trade via AdamB84. An excellent trader. Pours a slightly hazed over copper with hints of ruby highlights. A two finger creamy dense antique white head formed on the pour that fell to one finger of even more creaminess. Big bursts of carbonation rise to the surface. Leaves drink history lacing.

A solid dose of biscuity and caramel maltiness start things off but are quickly beaten aside by the hop assault. Big sugary sweetened grapefruit and soe tropicals (mang comes to mind) take center stage. The hop presence makes this beer smell like candy.

This is what I expect from a Left Coast IPA. Big juicy hop attack. Again, the malt begins biscuity but toward the finish have a nice caramel flavor whic becomes a moot point rather quickly. That big sweetened grapefruit jumps in immediately and kicks every bit of the malt aside along with the help of some other juicy ripe fruits (mango and even some peach). This is definately a tongue thumper.

The mouthfeel on this beer is incredible. Medium bodied but with an unbeatable silky smoothness. The hops are like a buzzsaw bittering up everything they come into contact with. It's been a little too long since I drank a beer where the bitterness lingers like it does with Wipeout. Completely numb mouth, even lips. Perfect!

The drinkability is superb. This bomber is disappearing far too quickly and I find myself wishing I had a case of this.

My first sampling from Pizza Port. If their other offerings are as good, in their respective styles, as Wipeout is it'll be tough to find anything more enjoyable. An exceptional beer that keeps the assault coming.

A: Poured a nice light orange with about an inch of creamy head.

S: Surprisingly no hop or citrus present in this IPA. Smells of more light fruitiness, maybe melon.

T: Taste of light fruit and just a tiny bit of hops right off the bat. It then turns to a grainy taste.

M: Very smooth, but surprisingly there is quite a bit of alcohol towards the end for a 7%.

I had this about a year ago and remembered it being much better. More of your typical IPA than this time. Maybe I misremember. This is pretty good but there are much better locals that I would chose any day over this.

Review from 11/30/06

A - Poured a nice clean apricot colored body with some bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. Starts with a one inch head on the pour, but is now about half of that. Fluffy and bright white, sort of like the surf when it is coming in.

S - Strange fruitiness along with a big wet grain odor. Fruit could be pear or cantelope?

T - Hmmm...is this an English IPA. Not at all what I expected from a west coast brewery doing an American IPA. Light fruit (pears and apples) combine with a barnyard taste that I have never had in an IPA. Wet grain and pale malt in abundance. Very odd.

M - Medium bodied and goes down very smooth. The highlight of the beer imo.

D - This isn't a bad beer, just not what I am looking for in an American IPA, especially from where it hails from.

Thanks to Westsidethreat for the bottle.
