4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: From the cask at the Rehoboth brewpub. It pours a nice, deep gold color with a dense, creamy, off-white head. The nose is nice and hoppy, but slightly subdued underneath all that foam. The flavor has great pine, resin, and tropical fruit notes. Outstanding flavor! Medium bodied with low carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. This is a great IPA. I wish something like this was available every day where I live.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The cask 75 Minute IPA poured oragnge-amber with a strong white head that had staying power. The aroma was a nice mixture of syrup and floral and tasted sweet and transformed to mild salty with a smooth lingering light bitterness, but not as strong as the 90 Minute IPA. This beer had a very silky mouthfeel and was a joy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 Draft at CAH. Pours hazy orangy with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, tropical fruity, resiny, with peppery and caramel malt notes. Tastes very complex, with a big resiny hop flavor, tengarine, honeydew, black pepper, and some marmaladey sweetness. Well hidden alcohol, and this is as good as I figured it would be.
Re-rate 25-Mar-2012. Bomber from RR St. Pours copper with frothy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, resiny, sticky, with caramel malt, hops, florals, and peppery flavors. I’m kicking this down a bit because quite simply it doesn;t seem as good to me as either the 60 or the 90 separately. There is no synergism here, but rather this one seems less than the sum of its parts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright copper orange with a quarter-inch of head. Great aroma of citrus fruits, sweet malts, light caramel- well balanced. Flavor is much like the aroma with a faint maple note. Finish is slightly dry and with nice bitterness. Smooth bodied. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one but it was on point.
