Bomber. Pours a burnt copper orange color with a small head. Aroma is citrus with light pine and resin. Taste is citrusy and light and drinks rather easily with some pine and resin notes. Finishes on the same tasting notes with some mild lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 /10

Draft: great head on the glass. Great aroma with a pine smell. The balance between the malt and hops are spot on. This is a great double IPA.

nice citrusy nose, elements of spicey orange-peel & bold hops. pours a blaze orange with a off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Taste is really nice w/a zesty hop-zing and a very nice malt balance. The orange zest really stick around. over-all a very tasty Dipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a murky amber orange color with a thick foamy head that lingers nicely and leave great webbing. Aroma is musty citrus, fruit cocktail, and pine. Taste is ok. Sweet fruit juice with a mild bitterness. Pine in the finish. Odd aftertaste. Possibly an old bottle but not sure. Ok DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a solid quilt of light cream foam. Nose is juicy fruit, a bit too much so, but if toned down a hare, and complemented with just a hint of malt would result in a really fine nose. Nonetheless, I like the nose; I get a ton of tangerine, grapefruit (sweet), orange, pineapple and subtle hints of resin. On second thought, fucken A, good nose. Bitter, not nearly as much flavor as I’d anticipated from the nose. The bitterness is ushered past to reveal, well, body odor flavors. Some peach and weed reside therein. Medium bodied with assertive carb and an off-dry finish. This beer has sooo many qualities that could make it sincerely great. As of now, it’s a decent standby. 3.5/4.5/3.5/3.5/3.5

Strong malt backbone, which I always like in a DIPA. Less bitter than I expected. The hops are mainly citrus and tropical fruits with some pine, resin, and floral notes. Not the most complex DIPA, but very enjoyable. Lacks the long, sticky, hop resin aftertaste that you would usually get from this style.
