3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to BMan1113VR: Pours a clear bright orange with a well-lacing spotty white head. Has a sharp citrusy grapefruit hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness underneath and floral pine. Starts with a fairly-full pale malty sweetness quickly giving way to a fresh resiny hop flavor and bitterness before finishing slightly drier, crisp and bittersweet. It masks its alcohol fairly well and has a powerful hop profile.

Nose is nice and fruity, lots of grapefruit and orange as well as pale malt sweetness, hints of sugars are here and there. Pours golden orange, nice clarity, nice head retention. Very fruity initially, nice malt hop balance creates a fruity iipa. Citrus, grapefruit, orange, pale malt, light floral and pine notes. Lingering citrus skin resin notes. Nice drinkability, not overly sweet, well balanced. Very good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Hi Times. Pours clearish orange with a small white head that leaves good lace. Smells musty and earthy hoppy with some citrus. Tastes astringent and sweet and musty hoppy. Not that great. I guess its the malts that are weird. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Roseville, CA. The aroma on this is basically sweet and mostly candy sugar. Maybe a little citrus hop in the nose, but not much else besides that and the sugar. Transparent copper with a nice frothy off-white head that is pretty resilient. Starts a little sweet with some sugary malts, before this becomes pretty toasted and almost burnt in the middle. Some soapiness is also in there. Finishes with some grapefruity hops that are mildly bitter before a harsh ethanol burn. Yikes.

Big delicious Double. Excellent lace, nice hazy orange. Beautiful beer. Damn good. Malty, creamy, grainy, perfection. Super grapefruit beer. Grapefruit rind through out. I just had Brew Dog Hardcore IPA and Rampage wins hands down. Super super delicious from beginning to end.
