4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at the Blind Tiger Ale House, NYC. I had three of these as my session beer of choice. A truly crafted IPA in every sense. Well described commercially by the brewer. Elevated ABV is unapparent in flavor.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Hazy amber with a thin head. Amazing aroma of orange/tangerine, with some light raisin. Starts sweet, with orange and grapefruit, and leads into a bitter finish. Full body with high carbonation. Great!

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Lots of pine, some citrus. Notes of peach, maybe pineapple? Tropical fruit of some sort. Very hop-forward. Very good. Been looking for this for about two years, I finally found it at some place in Philadelphia that sells bottles and seems to be a bar as well. And the Eagles were losing the preseason game too. As a lifelong Giants fan, I hate the Eagles. That just makes this beer even better.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Portland shared by kevinsenn. Big tangerine aroma, like Christmas in the summer. Golden colour, more or less clear with good head. Sweeter than a typical IPA with a bitter finish. Can’t tell if the light burn on the tongue is from alcohol or hops - probably a combination, but it’s not unpleasant. Well done.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Sweet and bitter aroma. Earthy organic. Thick orange cloudiness in color. Super packed with flavor. Very rich profile from start to finish. Buttery. Big farmhouse grain to it. Pine resin biter sticky. A bit rough and in your face. Man I want to try this on tap. To quote Ric Flair "Woooooo!". It’s hard to explain the richness this beer has. This has that "I am going to kick your ass" personality to it! Love it!

Pours a light golden yellow with a small frothy white top. Aroma is citrus hops and light cereal grain. Taste is mostly citrus hop bomb with cereal malts.

22oz bomber. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, mango, citrus, grapefruit, and honey. Taste of sweet honey malt, citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, and a pine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the growler NYC on stone st. Pours a bronze sticky hoppy and boozy sweet taste. Not sure how its for summer but its a good heavy double iPa if you're in the mood for one. Classic west coast

pours gold with a off white head that is silky in appearance. nose of light pine and citrus skins. taste has a solid malt base that holds the bitterness is balance. pine and booze burn on the finish. moderate carbonation keeps this light on the palate.
