CLear amber pour with good ring of offwhite head. Big piney citrusy foresty hop profile. Caramel malt afterthought gives a nice balance. Lingering hop bitterness. Gotta say, this is actually a damn fine ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared from a tall brown bottle into snifters. It poured a pretty deep reddish amber colour with long-lasting beige foam. Definitely a double IPA, extreme hoppy notes emphasizing woody and resiny traits, next some citrusy and peppery notes plus the complimentary aspects of juniper berries, balanced nicely by a strong amber ale grainbill. Some crisp graininess and caramel sweetness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, slight warmth but otherwise well-concealed alcohol. Dumb name (juniper trees are not even related to pine trees) and dumb packaging (seriously, STILL twist-off? címon, know your audience!) , but otherwise a very well-crafted beer. I wanna give credit where creditís due, but Coors makes it SO hard.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a sweeter hop smell. Appearance is a clear brown. Taste is a very hop forward. Very piney. Palate is bitter. Overall, a decent beer. Hop heads will prolly enjoy it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is of roasted malt and piney hops. Pretty descent aroma. Taste is not as good as the aroma. Lacks a full body and the flavors really are faint relative to the aroma. Palate is a bit watery.

From the 650 ml. bottle marked MAR3114-C210011342. It is a deep mahogany amber pour with reddish hues and great clarity. A modest off-white head. Aroma of pine needs and juniper berries mainly as promised. Medium body and smooth. The taste tends to highlight the juniper berries over the hop bitterness although there is still plenty of that there. I kind of liked it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear caramel with a quickly fading tan topper. Aroma is very dank with resinous piney hops, malt and mild juniper berries. Taste is full bodied with the juniper evident. Sweet and malty with fruity notes, some pine and finishes rather bitter. Low expectations exceeded.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate spruce aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a much better DIPA than I was expecting from Blue Moon.

Bomber pours a amber color with a thick off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, caramel and juniper. Tastes of all the same. things in the smell with The juniper berries pretty noticeable with a decent hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Iím pretty impressed Coors actually made a pretty solid imperial ipa. Nice balace and good flavor.
