3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. The body is more golden than amber, hazy, with a thick lasting white head. Aroma quite hoppy, grapefruit, grass, a bit of pine. Malts are a bit chewy, hops are a bit astringent, grapefruit and green grass flavours. Very bitter. This lacked something that was hard to pin down, and it didnít quite come together for me. Iím still having trouble letting go of the Stone 16th Anniversary IIPA I had a couple of days ago.

The aroma is sweet and fruity - cane sugar, tangerine, mango. Medium bodied. Sweet and fruity upfront with some citrus in the back ground and then finishes nicely bitter. I liked it.

Bomber. Great aroma: very floral, with cookies and apple pie. Hazy yellow-orange, small head. Good balanced initial with some seriously deep hopping; mid is balanced well; final has some yogurt and sourness. Medium heavy body. Very well-balanced brew; not over-the-top. Tasty stuff.

Very good golden orange color with white head, nice legs. Lots of tasty floral and strong sweet aroma. The palate is covered with lupulin. Its real hoppy but lots of grain to back up the bitterness. Its rounded out and well made but hoppy!

The body was a little too thick for my taste. Understood it was an imperial but it lacked the crispness I had hoped for.

Cloudy dark orange with a tiny pale head. Aroma is passionfruit, touch of pine. Somewhat subdued on the palate with a short finish and some lingering bitterness. Taste is passionfruit, grapefruit, pine and lemon peel. Meh

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 On tap in a signature sleeve at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. A very nicely balanced IIPA.
On tap at St Augustineís on The Drive. A murky amber color, with moderate whitish head. Bitter hops up front. The hop profile is both bitter and sweet, but not notably citrus. The overall effect is crisp and refreshing. Not much malt coming through. A small malt note on the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Moderate aroma of malt and hop. Decent malt flavor, strong hopping and strong bitterness, but somehow with stale qualities; the resins are still present, the fruits less. The final is also medium dry.
Powerful but not impressive.

Bomber from letspour.com. Orange-gold pour with a thin off-white and light sheets of lacing. Aroma is earthy, citrus, caramel malt, hoppy. Tastes are juicy citrus and sweet caramel malt - then harsh floral bitter (in a good way). Palate is slick and oily, but with a light spike of carbonation - almost seems like itís going to be flat until the tingle comes on in the end. Strange one overall - taste changes in a hurry and a weird palate - good though.

Hazy orange, thin beige head. Aroma of strong citrus and pin resin. Taste is solid, lots of rind and resin bitterness. Malt body is good and thick. Pretty solid.
