3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from Dutch’s Bar & Bottle Shop in Cincinnati, OH. Pours a clear, copper-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is dull pines with some grapefruit resins, oranges, and a medium sweet caramel malt backing. A bit of a vegetal floral backing too. Flavor is similar. Dull pine resins, grapefruit and oranges, some grassy and vegetal hops, and a medium sweet caramel. Finishes dry, lightly sweetened, and has a medium-high bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad IPA, but dry, bitter, lightly sweetened, and fairly lifeless. Eh...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pours clear reddish amber, dense off white head that recedes to a pleasant ring. Nose is dough, earth, caramel malts, honey, pine, grapefruit hops. On the tongue, caramel malts and honey sweetness, peppery, citrus hop bitterness from evident dry hopping. Nice bitter finish that lasts for the style. Medium bodied so quite drinkable. Solid offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Athens, Ohio. Amber in color with an off white head. Hops and malts take over on the aroma. Sweet malty flavor overwhelmes the hop flavor. Was expecting a better IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber from Herchick poured into a Schlafly Tulip glass. Thanks Bob! Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a huge amount of off-white head. Aroma of a lot of pine and citrus with just a touch of caramel. Taste is heavily bitter. Pine resin with some citrus on the back end. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, great! I would love to drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was the only bottle of my samples. Pours a dark amber with a small head. The aroma has a nice bit of pepper, pine, citrus with a bit of sweetness lingering. The flavor starts with just a bit of the malt but gives way to a big hop kick.

Bomber from bittermestupid. Thanks Greg! Pours copper with a slight beige head. Aromas of citrus and somewhat roasted malt. Med+ body. Flavor is light pitted fruit, citrus and a background roast caramel. This is living up to 80 IBUs. Finishes with a dry, hop burn. A very good IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 22oz bottle. Pours mper with a slight white head that fades to light lacing. Citrusy hops aroma that’s not overpowering. A little bit of sugary sweetness comes through on the nose. Taste is bubblegum and oranges, a really interesting mix that work. Very dry mouthfeel that leaves me feeling like I’ve been drinking a light champagne.
