3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy orange gold with an off-white head. The aroma has a very complex set of hops. Med + body. Flavor is lightly roast caramel, with hops that are fruity, citrus, earthy. I think one could pull out about any flavor from this beer. D..n good drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aromas of hops: floral, citrus. Light esters and some caramel bready notes. Flavors are medium bitter with a bitter balance overall. Mostly citrus from the hops with light undertones of earthy and more herbal hops. Some caramel/crystal malt flavors. Medium dry with medium carbonation. Alcohol creeps a little bit for what I was expecting. Pretty good overall.

pine and citrus up front, with a decent malt backbone for balance. dryer than the others, and a touch older (2-3 mo) just like the Mayberry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear gold body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of malts and a light degree of hops that are grassy, a bit of pine, some floral and a dash of lime peel. The taste begins with an even hoppiness that’s pine and floral and grassy all at once where there’s a good bit of hop bitterness going on. To midway a little bit of malts rise up to meet the bitter hops and mild flavor hoppiness and take this into the finish. Interesting take where it isn’t so much juicy but rather resiny with a decent malt base.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, just a couple weeks old. Deep golden near amber hue with touch of coppery sunset highlights, a lovely head and lacework. Not really a west coast styled IPA however. More akin to what you find on the east coast with a sightly malty and nutty background. Oh there still be hops here with resiny, piney and light tropical notes, faintly dank as well. Solid mouthfeel and dry metallic finish. Is a good somewhat balanced brew but nothing I wouldn’t be able to buy locally.
