Strong grapefruit after taste. Very dry finish. Another one and done. Too rich for drinking all night.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit one dimensional for a DIPA: from the aroma through the taste and to the finish, it was mostly dry, pine/resin bitterness with a long, bitter finish. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Overall, the taste was more of a typical NW IPA than a DIPA. But if you want your bitter/hoppy IPA experience with more alcohol, this is your beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz pour from chilled bottle into tulip. Orange, hazy, nice foamy head. Nose is bitter, citrus, a little pine, a little resin. Full body, sticky. Taste is mild up front with a strong bitter finish. Pine and resin throughout with undertones of orange. Not quite as complex as I like my DIPAs, but not bad by any stretch

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Clear Orange pour with a small white head. Very fruity aroma. Taste is less intense and too easy to drink - not as big as expected for an imperial. A bit of caramel and rather dry. Not at all boozy. Medium and slick mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
For a Imperial IPA I don’t get any boozy ness. Malty and sweet. If you want a sweeter smoother double this is an good one.

Bomber. Malty nose, pine, oranges, caramel. Glowing orange-amber color with a low, fine head. Sweet, slightly boozy flavor of oranges, biscuits, pine, something like orange sorbet. Nice fruitiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hop Thermia 8.5% Bomber shared by KyotoLefty. A deep orange-coper pour with a light beige filmy head of foam. The aroma is very fruity hops with a bit of dankness and caramel. Very sweet pine and fruits while solid it doesn’t stand out in any way.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold-amber pour with a billowing slightly-off white head - ample lacing left in its wake. Aroma is primarily resinous hops...some citrus notes mixed in there along with some spicy notes and something that’s odd, but I can’t put my finger on it. Generally good, but not all-in at this point. Flavor is very bitter...resinous, dank hops dominate...doesn’t have the malt backbone I was expecting. Some grapefruit hints, but again, not what I was expecting. Medium to heavy body for the style...this drinks like its ABV, if not more. Kind of ’meh’ on this one...far from ’bad’, but not quite good either!
