3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a large 2-finger head with good retention and leaves lots of lacing. Man, you can smell this one across the room! Huge hop aroma of citrus (orange and grapefruit), dank malts, and biscuits. Taste is very strong and more earthy tasting hops than citrus. But there is also a good citrus taste, heavy dank malts, pine, and biscuits. Dry finish of citrus and malts. Excellent palate with a medium body, somewhat oily texture, average carbonation. Very good IPA. Different and stands out.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours bright orange with a dense white cap. Nose is the goods - big grapefruit, dank, quite resinous and very tropical. Taste is big grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits and heavy zest. It has that familiar sticky sweet toffee back bone. Probably not completely fresh but tastes good either way. Nice beer

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Thai Me Up. Pours with a fantastic soft off white long lasting head. Aroma is fairly moderate of floral and fresh hop goodness with pale malts in the background. Flavor is full blast or caramel sweetness, fresh grapefruit pith, hop acids, and deep cedar. The feel is so full frothy, fresh, with a deep subtly biting bitterness taking a taking a long, long ride. Absolutely top notch hop bomb / fix.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Devil’s Advocate. A golden ale that sports little to no head. A refreshing aroma with hops prevalent. A definite hop taste with citrus undertones. Kind of has some double IPA elements but doesn’t commit to that style. I enjoy it. I would hop at least a henge to taste it again.

Tap at devils advocate. Pint glass. Small white head and gold color. Smell is subtle. Kinda yeasty , then some sweet and sour balance. Sugary. Some citrus. A lot of body. Finish is a little flat. But still a good beer.

From a bomber. Pours hazy amber copper with a foamy, frothy beige head. Tastes like hops, dry grapefruit, some pine, bitterness, malty and nutty. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like nutty toasted malt, grapefruit, hops, and resin.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was served in a snifter from a 22oz bomber, the nose has very strong grapfruit notes with a very slight grassy smell. as for taste it again overpowers with the grapefruit note (likely due to the chinook hop) but despite its almost 9% abv it has a light feel and is easy to drink. overall i would recommend to anyone

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma is grapefruity, piney, doughy, perfumy. Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick off-white pillowy head with excellent retention; leaves some lace. Taste is pretty standard for style. Starts out sweet and finishes with a lingering bitterness; bit of an alcohol burn in the finish. Doesn’t taste experimental. Good but average.
