3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.75% abv. $7.49 for the 650 mL bottle purchased from Bevmo (Temecula) earlier today. To pint, it pours a clear golden amber, and sustaining a bubbly off-white head resting atop. Aromas of pine needles, grapefruit, sourdough, lacquer, bong water, Bible paper, spelt, cotton, and green grapes. Tastes the same with the addition of chalk, chrysanthemum, and palm tree bark. Smooth and poundable. Nice IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber purchased at BevMo in Escondido ($7.99). Pours a hazy sunset-orange hue with two fingers of fluffy white foam which leave some nice lacing. AROMA of fresh-cut citrus (tangerine and grapefruit), wet pine forest, hints of stone fruit (peach, apricot), herbal-resiny hops, and some toasted malts. FLAVOR of bright citrus, pine resin, earthy herbal hops, with some honey malts. Finishes mildly bitter. I didnít drink this as fresh as I should have, but the hops are very well done here. Another fine lupulin effort from the folks at Drakes. (144, 843)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: thanks, Mike! Cloudy, muddled golden color which has some orange-ish hues near the center; almost full opaque & topped with a nice sized, chunky eggshell creme that leaves nice lacing as it recedes. Aroma is full of juicy hops; light, gummy orange flesh, tropical fruit peels, dank & resinous hops... Very West Coast in execution - stanky pines & sticky tropics with only a mild, cracker-y malt bill. Taste start with bitter pines, pungent lupulin oil, mild grass, & a faint hint of green onion. Mide-palate into the finish has much fruit; tangerine peel, pineapple, & pith-y citrus notes... Quite bitter on the back of the tongue with a very small hint of malt sweetness for balance; light biscuit-y & bread-like finishing character. A pretty damn nice & very aromatic IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled: recently Iím assured.
Apricot with a good peanut quilt, low clarity. Smells of citra, orange, lime, pine, weed, resin - all the awesome things from hops together. The nose does not fit any single IPA, itís blowing my mind - Iím expecting booze, but the ABV indicates otherwise. So I give it a taste, Iím surprised at the bitterness up front - then the citrus notes come back through and bitch slap my tongue. Biscuity malts follow through. Medium bodied with hi carb and an oddly dry finish. Nice beer, really nice beer.
