3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
An IPA full of floral, hoppy notes in the aroma and flavor. Muted hints of malt. Dry, but not overly strong. Could use a bit more balance of flavor, but very good for a hoppy, dry IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big Bottle. Hazy orange brown with a thin, off-white head. Big lace rings. Aroma of grapefruit and nectarine. Pink grapefruit with a caramel toffee backbone. Bitter lemon drying. Zippy carb lightens up the strong malts but overall a bit heavy on the malts for an IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is tangerine, pine, caramel and floral hops. Appearance is a rich honey golden color with massive pillowy white head. The taste begins with potent ruby red grapefruit and resinous hops flavors followed by toasted malt, dried mango and orange citrus. The tropical fruit flavors blend especially well with the bitter hops and malt backbone. Mouthfeel is moderately creamy with medium carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. Yet another impressive West Coast style IPA that delivers a strong dose of hop goodness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Copper brown color with significant head. Malt and pine in aroma. Medium bodyFlavor somewhat subdued, at first seemed more malty than hoppy, almost with some roasted grain flavors although later in the glass hops became more noticable. Not bad but not one of my favorite IPAs.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange color with a white soapy head. Has an awesome grapefruit aroma, with hints of caramel and pine. Nice sweet start with a great hop hit. Would expect nothing less from a southern Cali IPA. Nice sweet, bitter notes on the finish. Lovely IPA. At 6% this is truly session worthy.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Bomber shared with steptin and bouche. Bright golden color, huge fluffy white head, massive lacing. Aroma of lemon trees, pine forests and grassy meadows. The taste actually brings you to mountain meadows and pine forests. Wonderful stuff.
Bottle shared with Nick and Sica from Connecticut. Nice stuff.
