2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Keg N Bottle #2: Color was a glowing honey tea like gold and created a thick fluffy head which soon rested to a layer of film. The aroma is strange and smells fruity and floral with dried fruits and mixture of hop combinations. The initial flavor is a shock of tart sourness with a little bitterness but not many ingredients are easily identified. There is a minor tasting of pomegranate and bready notes of grain with super funky yeast. Not as promising as the label description made it sound to be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear rusty copper with a frothy, off white head. Aroma is citrus, light caramel, pine and floral. The flavor is a bready caramel malt base with a medium hop bitterness and a very light spicy rye character. Medium body with average carbonation and a thick, silky mouth feel. This is a really good IPA, goes down very easy and lots of flavor.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle as an extra in a trade from smokepot23 - thanks Joe! Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with medium sized light tan head. Aroma is fairly malty, light touch of spiceyness and black pepper, touch of floral hops. Flavor is fairly malty, rather spicey from the rye, with herbal hops and touch of crystal malts. Finish is mildly bitter. This is decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber poured into pint glass. I love supporting my local breweries, I need to get to this place to check it out, just been trying bombers here and there.
This is a nicely floral aroma IPA, dark orange, head faded quickly. Taste is well balanced, a tad bitter and has a nice texture on the finish. I nice respectable IPA.

22 oz bottle. Clear reddish gold pour, sticky off-white head. Crisp hops, foral, citrus, rye, and semi sweet grain. Nice refeshing IPA. I have no problems with it, but not spectacular.
