Golden orange pour with a white head. Aroma is biscuit, citrus and sweet cereal. Hop forward taste with a citrus and resin, sweet malt backbone. Pretty tasty, alcohol is very well hidden.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. Newly released and distributed. Elegant aromas of citrus, papaya, mango, honey, and florals. Awesome! Good weight and mouthfeel, with fuller texture and soft, creamy carbonation. Balanced bitterness compliments flavors of citrus, pine, papaya, mango, and florals, with a hint orange sweetness. My new favorite seasonal release from Bear Republic. Good stuff.

Yes, very fresh and piney something recent batches of Pliny has been lacking. Couldn’t put this beer down. Worth pouring into a nice ipa glass as the presentation is outstanding, and the legs worth noting. Hope they brew this recipe year round!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Aroma is all floral an citrus hops. Pours dark copper with almost no head. Taste of big bitter resinous hops and more citrus. As it warmed, the biscuit smell and flavor really came out. Malty, hoppy and pleasantly bitter. Excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is incredibly hoppy, with caramel, cinnamon and pines. Copper/gold appearance with decent lace. Taste is ridiculously hop forward with caramel and bready malts. Finish is super dry with pines and herbs. Overall, this what I call an IPA. Every classic IPA flavor but just so pronounced. A rating.

Great aroma, when you pop the top, it fills the room with hippy goodness. A very well rounded IPA.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium to deep gold, qhite, lasting head qith abundant lacing.
Full body, silky texture, intense and long flavor.
Bitter but perfectly balanced by the malt, warmth of alcohol brightens what could be a heavy drink otherwise.
Very hoppy, resiny, malty.
Delicious, like most from these brewers.

Bomber. Pours a reddish amber color with thick white head. Nose is all resin and pine. Full mouthfeel, with citrus up front and grass and pine/orange/bitter hops toward the back. Impressive.
