4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Pours a beautiful hazy, sunset orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thick lacing around the glass. Nice carbonation which tells me this will be a refreshing ipa. Smells of resinous fruits like grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and pineapple. Also get some pine and like a bubblegum smell from the sweet malts. Taste is very much like it smells. starts with the resinous fruits such as pineapple and tangerine. Then in the middle there is a great balance of malt: get bready flavors as well as a creamy carmel sweetness. Then the finish is an incredible blend of the sweet, carmely malts and the resinous hop qualities. Get a prominent bubblegum flavor, as well as hints of pineapple, pine, grapefruit, and lemon. The bitterness gets more astringent as it goes through the flavor profile; however, the sweet and bready malts also get more prominent on the finish, so there is a nice balance at the end. A nice dry, crisp, clean finish. Medium body with a creamy and crisp mouthfeel. Wish I could get this more often. Just an incredible IPA.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy and piney hops, alcohol, caramel and bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Excellent brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Perfect IPA- aromatic, rich flavored and has enough body to be spiied not drinked. Pours pale amber with some orange notes, thick, rich lasing top. Aroma is so complex and intense - malty sweetness backboned it just allows you to be seduced by citrus, pine, resin, sweet fruity hops dance on your nose. Taste is medium sweet and very nice balanced by medium+ hops bitter, leaving resiny, piney aftertaste. Medium+ body, thick-oily texture, soft carbonation, long, pleasant, mild resiny finish. Complex, flavorfull, enjoyable.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. A nice hazy orange/amber color with a frothy white head. An aroma of resiny hops and floral notes with a distinct malt sweetness. One of the most solid and true west coast IPA’s I have had. Pick one up!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy pale yellow fading to orange with lots of carbonation and a large foamy white head. A bit of wet lacing. Powerful aroma of sweet tropical fruits like tangerine and a touch of pine. Taste starts sweet with tangerine citrus that flips quickly to grapefruit and then a rich resonated piney hop bitterness that lingers. Mildly bitter aftertaste with an echo of citrus. Well-balanced with a subtle caramel malt backbone and a solid relatively dry mouthfeel that is neither overly carbonated nor cloying. This is a no-nonsense, straight-up outstanding AIPA.
