3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Colour... very cloudy amber with an eminently thick, pillowy, off-white head. Nose... quite hoppy and malty all at the same time! Palate... a burst of dusty/earthy hops with a dry quince like character as well as the quintessential grapefruit skin and pith aspect and a sweet/dry finish.

Draft pour. Clear golden color with white sheen. Nice tooty fruity, floral, honey aromas. Medium bodied. Dank, spicy ganja bud, grassy hop flavors in a solid honey biscuit base brew--good

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Big hop flavor with light caramel malt in the background. Grapefruit and other citrus comes out towards the end. Bitter finish with a big alcohol burn that spoils a pretty good Imperial India Pale Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours light amber gold with a creamy near white head. Moderate grapefruit aroma. Near full bodied. Flavor is light caramel with a great deal of hop - which seems to be grapefruit and floral. Itís only moderately harsh, and itís quite bitter. Nice drink thisín.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Alameda. Hazy orange pour with a persistent, short white head leaving heavy lace. Pine, malt and ethanol nose. Medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation. Caramel, ethanol, grapefruit, whisky, toast and pine. Long, bitter finish with a touch more caramel. Too boozy for my tastes.

This is a really good IPA. Potent Hops but there is a lingering bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: Smells pretty mediocre (and I might be a bit generous there). Some floral and lightly spicy hops with tons of bread and pale malts. A hint of citrus and even more sweetness, mostly toffee with a touch of caramel.
T: Fairly bready in terms of the malt flavor with some grassy hops and a light floral and citrus note. There is tons of toffee, a little bit of caramel, and a very stale feeling about the beer. Pretty "blah".
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Another lackluster IPA from the PNW, unfortunately. Wasnít a fan of this one.

Sampled on tap for IIPA fest @ Saraveza, pours cloudy golden with a small head. Aroma of piney hops, light tropical fruits and caramel. Flavour of buttery, resinous hops, caramel and bready malts. Pretty standard albeit well-made IIPA.
