2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent enough IPA. But, as a Dogfish Head IPA definitely a let down. Their standard run if IPAs is better. It tastes overly dry hopped. The hop flavor is good, but not enough bitterness to match it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber - pours a clear brilliant golden orange with a thick, fluffy off white head. The aroma reminds me more of an English IPA with hops and malt coming thru. Nice fruity hop flavor blends well with the light caramel and fruity malts. A little boozy. Not bad, different

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours gold with an off white head. This is a bit hazy overall. There are aromas of pine, floral, pineapple, and some bread. There is an initial sweet flavor with citrus, floral, pineapple, pine, and bread. It is moderately bitter, with a moderate body and some alcohol warming. Overall for the ABV it is a fairly easy drinking hop driven IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with light notes of black tea, graham cracker, scorched honey, lemon zest. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Pretty good flavor balance and mouthfeel for the style, but the aroma is meek and somewhat odd (but thankfully not the usual raw/green hop bomb that most in this style are). Ok but not terribly enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good aroma. Nice copper color with a white frothy head. The palate seemed kind of thin. It was bitter but also dry and not that well balanced. I’m a little disappointed. hopping for a bit more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bomber. Pours a light gold and makes a sudsy, big macro beer head with a bit of lacing down the glass. Aroma is of corn, floral, Pilsner, and a bit of hops. Tastes of biscuit, caramel, and lightly hopped. Surprisingly high abv for the taste. It's a good beer, but a bit too much macro beer taste for my liking even though I'm giving it a good grade.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2016 release, golden pour with a white light fluffy head. Nose is floral, Belgian spices, very light and mild. Taste is similar, lightly carbonated. This is a nice beer that doesn't show it's 9% ABV. I would prefer the 90 minute IPA any day.
