3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange, nice dense white head. First whiff is a little bit of brown sugar or caramel, then a wave of citrusy, grapefruity hops - I need an air freshenner that smells like this, actually. Flavor is most hops - nice mix of grapefruit and pine. Decent bit of sweetness in the background, too. Enjoyable beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Albertsonís in San Diego. A nice whiff of hops coming off this orangy gold IPA with a billowing white head. Dry, black pepper and pine hop bitterness grips the tongue and is balanced out with a nice toasty malt background. Leaves a lasting bitter taste with some grassy, herbal notes. Nice West Coast IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the local. Very clean nose at first when cold where you can hardly smell anything but what appears to be a very clean hop profile. A little bit of glue and mild diacetyl round out the nose. Flavor is a bit green finishing with a nice bitterness. Diacetyl lingers and doesnt help the underdeveloped flavor.
