3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Malone’s 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 it’s 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.

Bomber shared with anderson01, thanks. Pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing white head that collapses into a skiff of big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of cat pee, tropical fruits. Taste is bittersweet and citrusy. Nice hoppy impy IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy copper in appearance. Thin to no head with like lacing. Charcoal notes. Vanilla and a hint of Caramel in the aroma. There is a Hoppy flavor to it. First thing I taste is hops. For a imperial I expected creamerer. The finish is strong and Hoppy. Thin body with some carbonation. For the price not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle, thanks anderson01- Pours a very hazy golden with a thin collapsing head that reduces to a blanket. The aroma is intense resinous hops, not much more. The taste is the same, all about the hops, and I like it, much better than I was expecting actually. Body is full and carbonation is hight as well. Overall I already said it, wasn’t expecting much and was peasantly surprised, solid offering.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky sap color, light lacing that lingers throughout. Citrus-floral nose with a little sour cream. Pleasant effervescence. Pronouced hop in the back with just a little resin, but doesn’t hang around. Very drinkable without any harsh alcohol pop. A really fine Imperial IPA.
