Draft - Cask. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a medium to heavy smooth bittersweet alcohol finish of long duration. A standout beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber courtesy of Secret Santa jmikolich. Thanks! Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium sized creamy slightly-offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, candied citrus, earthy and piney hops with a solid caramel maltiness. The taste is earthy, piney hops, a bit of a tropical note, mango and melon particularly, and pale caramel malts. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, just the faintest hint of booze. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from brewery. Passable DIPA, but somewhat overated. Orange coloured body with low amount of head. Neutral aroma. Alcohol was hidde by the hops and malt, and got some orange flavour from the amarillo and summit, but not all that much. Finish was more malty and ordinary.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 Sample at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer is a hazy orange color with a medium thin bone white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops aroma with some earthy notes. Medium body with flavors of toasted malt, citrus, hops and more earth. The finish is citrusy with a short hoppy aftertaste. Less hoppy than a lot of IIPAs, but above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Beer Engine. Deep golden pour. The nose is intensely hoppy. Bright mango and tropical hoppiness. Fresh and incredibly hoppy. Light pale malt sweetness balanced by a soft peppery character. Bitterness is restrained, but the hoppiness certainly isn’t. Fruity and chewy. An absolute hop assault, but it is really damn tasty.

[Cask @ Beer Engine] Poured a lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, sticky caramel malts, floral hops, ripe citrus fruits, and toasted malt. Taste of resiny pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, marijuana, and lightly alcoholic finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange amber color in the sifter. Sticky lace left by sa short lived off white head. Big sticky hop resin nose with some tropical fruit and candied grapefruit. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel. This is a hop bomb. Resin, grapefruit juice, orange marmalade, and english muffin. The finish shows some grassy bitterness under all the rest. It makes my lips sticky.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh, juicy, grapefruity hops. Nice nose. Lots of peachy and nectarine notes. A iipa that non-beer drinkers would like. Very jammy. Big body with low bitterness. Not in your face. A bit of lactic acid puts off the finish.
