4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At RAF Chicago: Golden hued with large white head and solid lacing. The aroma hints of fresh pungent hops, caramel roasted malts, twangy grapefruit, and herbal notes. The taste is quite hoppy up front with a mild citric component. The malt and yeast is barely noticeable, but does provide some support. Bitter lingering finish. Medium-bodied with a crisp and firm mouthfeel. Almost double IPA in style, hopheads delight. Enjoy if you get some.

Poured a dark gold with white bubbles. Strong citrus hops consume all nose hairs. Piney hop taste with a sharp grapefruity bitter finish. This was really nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange, tan head, almost identicle in appearance to the Bombay IPA. Fruity, floral aroma. Dirty, earthy hop flavor, with a looooong earthy, resiny hop finish. According to the waiter, this was the winning recipe from a homebrew competition. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition festival. Pours golden / orange with a small head. The aroma has piny floral hops, sweet caramel malt and some diacetyl. Medium body that is a bit abrasive and has some semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts like the aroma, but the oxidized side and there is some syrupy sweetness. The finish is thin and overly earthy.

The only one I remember well enough to remember from my college days. This was a very hoppy beer but quite tasty. Wasn’t really sure at the time about the strong hop flavors as I am now.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the Cool Springs location the first week they tapped it. Either this year’s batch wasn’t up to snuff, or this has just been overrated since the getgo. Pours a near clear gold with small off-white head. Honey, floral, earthy, bitter. Alcohol burn on the tongue. Pretty average and kinda mellow. No real hop punch like I had expect from the ’hop god’. But it was one of the better Bosco’s beers I’ve had, so i guess compared to their other crap, this drink pretty good?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is pretty nice with clean, cutting citrus. Grapefruit is most noticed, but a bright and floral bouquet exists. The mouthfeel is rather light, but packs a drying punch. Pine, grapefruit, and light bready malts comprise the flavor. The hops really cut through this lightly sweet and very clean ale.
