3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy classic golden color with a quickly attenuating pure white head. Malty aromas of biscuit, pineapple, and raisin. No real aromatic hops to speak of. The mouthfeel is a little oily with microscopic prickly sensation occurring midway through the finish. No fizziness, however. It has a medium to full body. There’s noticeable alcohol warmth after the finish that lingers and, perhaps, even increases. There is certainly more balance in the flavor than in the aroma. There is some Stone-like bitterness that appears midway and accentuates that prickliness in the palate. The malt is cut significantly by the bittering hops. There is a bit of saltiness 3/4 of the way through.

Pour is a burnt orange with an off white head. Little bit of mango and hop bitterness on the nose, peach, an almost spicy character too, and a nice bready malt character. Taste is somewhat bitter, lots of tropical fruit, quite sweet, with a nice bit of malt, and there’s a grassy spiciness to it as well. Medium bodied, good beer although I’d think they could do better given they brew one of the best IPA’s out there.

Bottle from 5K backlog. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Nose and taste of perfume, caramel malt, bitter orange peel, resin and cologne. Light alcohol in the finish. Tons of malt. A bit too perfumy for me. Medium body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey-amber with a thin white head, good lacing. Nose is pineapple, malts and some alcohol. Mouth is medium bodied, citrus (grapefruit) hoppiness and bittersweet up front, which rides a malty backbone through to a looonggg bitter finish. Not too complex, but a decent DIPA all the same.
