3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a clear amber/red with a thin to medium yellow head that leaves excellent sheety lace. Massive piney hop bomb with a slightly sweaty nose along with kumquats. Taste is massive piney hops, sweat, kumquat peel. Instant headache ensues.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First rating for this local brewery -- not sure why I’ve never gotten around to trying any of their stuff. Bomber from Holiday Wine Cellar ($6.79). Pours a clear orange-amber with one finger of white foam. The hoppy aroma has notes of fresh-cut grass and citrus and perhaps tropical fruits. Flavor of bright fresh earthy hops with sticky pine sap, citrus, and grass. Nice balanced malt profile. Bitter but with nice hints of sweetness. Nice level of bitterness in the finish. (209, 368)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Poured a copper color with a slightly off white head that continued throughout and produced a hint of lacing. There is a wonderful bouquet of floral aromas, thorn bushes, fruit, and a touch of pine. On mouth this is a warming IPA with an ever so slight sweetness in the beginning and a nice side action of hop bitterness towards the end.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle ordered from South Bay drugs. Golden copper body, fluffy white head w. nice lacing. Nose is dank, a little garlic, alcohol, green pine, weed, tropical fruits (mango?), and an east-coast like malt backbone. Really solid, if the alcohol was more restrained it would get a 9. Flavor is stronger dank/garlic, really nice bitterness throughout with lots of pine resin, honey covered grilled peaches, tingly alcohol. Pine comes out more in the finish than the opening along with some nice caramel flavors. Really super stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a coppery orange with a thin head. Aromas are dominated by pineapple, resin and citrus. Flavor is very sweet... that sticky and sugary malt presence that I don’t really care for in an IIPA, with a sharp resin finish that stings the palate a bit. Alcohol is obvious and makes this even more rough around the edges.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Clear shiny orange-copper with a lasting ring of cream. Nose is luscious orange-grapefruit, caramel, and resin. Flavors of grapefruit, caramel, resin, and wood are in nice balance. Light-medium body is smooth, lightly warming and to the dry side with all the hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to OrlGamecock for sharing the bottle. Pretty standard IPA. Nothing offensive about it. Lots of piney hops. Decent enough.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a opaque dark amber hue with a white head, great lace and retention to it. Aroma had strong hop notes. A nice mix citrus, pine and even a floral note to it. Flavor was nice and hoppy, but lacked any significant caramel malts. Alcohol seemed well hidden. Finish was dry. A good 2IPA.
