3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is primarily resin. Med body. Flavor is like resin with some zest. I’m not sure citrus should count as spice - but? There’s a fair amount of floral to go with the resin. It’s quite bitter. Bitter like citrus rind in fact. Very different.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Galbraiths in Auckland. Sort of a test, to see if the IPAs survive the trip. Cloudy yellow orange color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of bright orange, pineapple, lemon. Taste is orange infused rising white bread dough, spices. Very nice. Staff says it takes them about a month to get this, and I think it survived quite nicely.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in color with a white head. Mild citrus, some hints of pine, and maybe floral notes. Coriander, pepper, and maybe some woody herbal notes. There’s a decent amount of citrus peel to the flavor, but something is off about it. Coriander, pepper, and pine. Strong bitterness on the finish. Mild malt sweetness. Meh.
