4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a lovely light amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is full of hops in all of their glory, citrusy, floral, all mixed together with a light caramel malty sweetness. Flavor is a pungent hoppy bitterness with a light caramel malt sweetness. Light to medium in body with a lingering citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Always been one of my favorites.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Appearance is a light golden bronze color with a cap of off-white foam and bubbles. Lots of pine resin, tropical fruit, grapefruit and lemon in the aroma. The taste starts with a potent dose of tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit rind along with some pine, hops resin and toasted malt toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a clean, bitter citrus finish. Overall, a fantastic West Coast style IPA with just enough balance and complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Apricot and citurs aroma; golden, caramel appearance; light, crisp hpppy taste with a hint of sweetness; lively on the palate with a bitter finish; overall a very good beer with the charcteristically hoppy flavor of an IPA, but light enough that you could find yourself through three before you knew it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright golden hue almost resembling a lager. Aroma is unique. I get lemon, melons, and a decent amount of booziness. It smells really fresh. The body on this beer is very light making it dangerously drinkable. Tropical citrus notes and a crisp finish with warming alcohol all the way through. Similar style to Pliny yet its own entity, really enjoyable and fresh.

This is an exceptional beer. I can’t understand how anyone could say that this IPA is overrated. There is a strong hops flavor with only a hint of bitterness. There is also a pleasant fruitiness that lingers on the palate. On a hot summer day this IPA really hits the spot. Hats off to the brewers of this outstanding example of an American IPA.
