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

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.

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!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Grand Canyon park bar. Hazy orange, light carbo, small head. A: very light ipa and caramel malts aroma, some cola and lime. Ok but maybe too thin. T: medium bodied ipa, nice mellow exotic fruits, strong malt character (almost Speciale Belge), medium bitter development with bitter fruity aftertaste.
