Bonus from a recent trade. Sticky pine hop aroma and flavor. Chewy malt and candi sugar sweetness. Straight orange color. Remind a me of an orange cream sickle or one of those candy slices. Finish has a touch of spice bit a ton of pine hops again.

22oz bomber c/o Elise split with Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan body. Foamy, glass lacing white head. Clean and lovely IIPA. Lots of hop depth, as you might expect looking at the hop bill. The English malt sort of shows, and gives it some added chewiness, heft. Juicy tangerine, orange, pink grapefruit. Pretty solid IIPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Golden amber pour with a cap of dense foam. Aroma is a blend of honey, herbal hops, pine resin and tropical fruit. Taste blends resiny hops, tangerine and grapefruit upfront followed by notes of mint, pine and caramel malt. Thick and creamy body with medium carbonation and a final serving of grassy hops bitterness and citrus rind in the finish. Hopefully they’ll make this year-round. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I received this in a trade.
I poured this into a tulip.
There is no date on it.
The appearance is a clear amber to light red in color. There is a fluffy white one and a half finger head that dissipates within about a minute in spots but maintains a lumpy sort of look in other spots. Decent carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace.
The smell has a fair amount of honey flavored citrus hops with a decent herbal to earthy dank aroma combining and backing it all up into a nice tight fulfilling quality. Very nice!
The taste is combined well between the citrus hops and the honey to showcase a very nice bittersweetness. The aftertaste is honey sweet with a quick dry sweet finish.
On the palate, it sits about a medium in body with a decent sharpness from a normal DIPA but still leads me on with a nice "West Coast" maltiness that is somewhat smooth and ends up coating my mouth and tongue with a touch of honey.
Overall, I get it. This is a very nice West Coast DIPA that is very reminiscent of Hopslam but in the West Coast sort of way. By all means, I would have this again in a heartbeat.

Bottle. Golden pour, thick, substantial head that lasts. Aroma is light, oddly sweet, reminds me of candy, but maybe flowers is the proper description. Flavor is moderately bitter, resiny, with solid malt presence and a sort of oily mouthfeel. Finishes with a lingering bitterness that stays within bounds for my palate.

Highly herbal, and citrus. Very strong alcohol and boozy sweet. Smells light yet taste is pretty heavy. Interesting brewery.
