Cheap bomber from the liquor store. Wasnít expecting too much and what I got was pretty on par. The boozy part will put me down for the night. Love Zappa though Iíve yet to have a great beer with his name attached to it. Seems like a Bastard, but just not there. For the price, Iím ok with it. Just need to be sure to drink lots of water before bed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bottleworks, Seattle
Hazy light amber color with compact head. Wonderful aroma, pungent hops (but less than usual Nelson Sauvin), perfume and talc, Brett. Lean body; mild malt and toffee flavor, some fruitiness, Bretts, bitter orange peel, strong bitterness, astringent final.
Clearly infected. And it worked out well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a very cloudy orange with a medium beige head and loads of sediment. Aroma is very earthy and yeasty, with bubblegum and rock candy. Doesnít smell like an IPA in any way. Flavour is fucked up, with loads of the Nelson Sauvin hops, maybe a bit of brett, and white wine. Almost tastes infected, but more like a saison. Strange stuff - it tastes very good, just totally off-style. Hard to get my brain away from thinking itís an IPA. Itís alright.

So,basically this tastes like an attempt at an Arrogant Bastard knockoffs pretty well done in that regard, though a bit more noticeable in alcohol. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
8.5% abv 22oz bomber IIPA for under $5? Nice. The bottle pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, some crystal malts and a bit of caramel to go along with faint cherry like fruity esters mixing with citrus flavored gummy bear hoppiness. The taste begins with some fruity sweetness thatís citrus hard candy hoppiness mixed with sweet malts and crystal malt sweetness. To midway a pleasing light degree of earthy tea leaves surfaces along with an upwelling of faint cherry like fruity esters. Into the finish I realize there are moments here and there that have a resiny pine hoppiness. Overall this beer isnít all that cohesive.

Bottle from Whole Foods, Sacramento. Pours cloudy amber with an attractive beige head and a funky toffee aroma. There is a harsh caramel malt flavor with a very bitter finish. Seriously unbalanced.
