22oz bottle. Clear, orange\amber color. White head. Overwhelming nose of citrusy hops. Loads of citrus, hops, and some pineapple juice scent as it warms. Overall aroma smells like a dry hopped Double IPA. Flavor of sharp hops. More hops on the palate on top of the already hop floral nose. Hops, hops, hops. Under all of the hop bitterness, there is a silky\sticky malt backbone that has flavors of pale malts and puffed wheat. Wheat malt and citrus, finishes with a bit of alcohol as well. This beer is definitely not a Wheat Ale, this is an Imperial/Double IPA for sure.

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus rinds and pine hops. Wheat and grass with some pineapple. Taste citrus and pine hops. Sweet malt backbone. Pineapple and wheat are subtle throughout. Sticky on the palate. Medium bodied. Slightly dry bitter finish with a a sweet lingering aftertaste. Definitely made interesting by all the different characteristics.

Pours deep hazed gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes soapily. Passion fruit, pineapple and grapefruit aromas. Thick with sweet caramel and wheat upfront turning quickly tropical fruits and resin before the bitter grapefruit pith finish.

Mesmerizing orange color, loved the pour. Boasts a good bite, unexpected but pleasant. The "mystery" ale was intriguing, leaning more towards a pale ale. Loved this beer. Highly recommended. Brash has done it again!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very similar to the Ninkasi Triceratops DIPA. Cloudy, apricot color and a thin head. Very complex concoction of citrus and pine hops that had me as confused as the Grinch on Christmas, but delighted nevertheless. Shared with friends who weren’t used to brews of this nature, but it was well received.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromasof biscuit, cat piss, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, dank bud, grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Very smooth, citrusy dIPA combined with a sweet wheat beer. The best part is that the IPA dominates over the wheat: the sweet wheat balances the aggressive citrusy hops. Very nice and smooth sipper. A sleeper of double - it drinks like a smooth IPA.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells like IPA, new car, and alcohol.
Deep orange gold and opaque. Solid lacing and head retention.
Tastes like a big IPA but the hops have a unique licorice and rye whiskey character that I haven’t had too much of. The taste changes a lot from start to finish and the transition from note to note is slow so you notice everything. A lot of licorice and anise/ouzo as it goes back. Aftertaste is similar with bourbon/rye whiskey. Excellent structure and great taste.
