4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amazing aroma, full of pine and citrus. Pours a clear amber, with just a cap of white head. This is truly a hophead’s friend. Slick, oily mouthfeel, just enough malts to avoid drinking a hop tea. Nice lacing on the glass, and a long bitter finish. I’m going to be seeking this out again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bomber to a pilsner glass. First hit of the nose for me was an odd
lemon pledge. Hazy amber and yeasty pour. Big first taste. Apricot syrup booze right off the bat. Rounded malt supporting the middle. Very well balanced through the clean fairly dry finish. The crisp green apple at the finish left me wanting more. Super complex but well balanced.

Bomber. Clear copper with a foamy, off white head that lasts in spots and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, biscuit, light earthy mineral notes, herbs, pear and banana. Flavor is grapefruit, pine resin, light biscuit, earthy spice, herbs. Medium bodied, smooth with a slightly dry, warm and bitter end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, snifter. Pleasing clean gold color. Mild balance of sweet malt to start. As it warms it becomes more complex. The bitterness increased and the balance of malt and hops with a hint of sweetness impressed my palate. Very interesting!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Honey, flowers, citrus are dominant in the aroma with some notes of pine.
Taste is a good mix of malt, grapefruit, pines and honey.
Everything is more contrast and explosive compared to, for example, Hardcore IIPA from BrewDog.
This beer is really bitter. Every IBU unit is noticeable all the time.
But this high bitterness level is not disgusting, but magically pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, bright golden-yellow, with minimal head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma smells of apricot or spoiled peaches, with a touch of hops. Flavor is very sweet (almost verging on barley wine sweetness), with apricot/peach, some hops, slight booziness, and a slightly bitter finish. Not particularly piney, dank, or resinous in my experience.

65 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego. Bottled 10/2014.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Sweet piney caramel aroma, hops are a bit mild, some apricot notes too. Orange on the flavor, resin, malts and apricot. A bit old, low carbonation, decent flavor though.
