3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent amber with a slight off-white head. Mixed resin/citrus aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is very brown sugar with a good dose of hop - but the malt seems to be in the ascendant. Despite that there’s hop burn - and I’m now ascribing that to floral resin. Finishes amazingly balanced - with lots of hop.

Orange pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malt along with tons of pineapple and grapefruit. Nice pine, floral hops, and a really nice tropical aroma overall. The flavor is really nice and tropical as well. Big pineapple and lots of grapefruit. Pine bitterness balances out the caramel sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a hazed, deep golden hued body with a lasting off-white head. Aromas are quite pungent, hoppy, spicy, dank, CTZ like, medium caramel, a hint of diacetyl like butterscotch. Aroma is mostly hops though, weed, strong, fresh, grassy. Flavors are hoppy, citrusy, dank, lightly bitter, floral and tropical fruit. Lively carbonation, fuller bodied, warming. Quite a bit sweeter than I would like, but nice and fresh hop character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, Neil), pours a hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out loads of resinous hops, pine, and some dry caramel malt. Flavour is uber dry ad hoppy, with loads of dry pine, floral hops, and just enough crackery malt to back. Super dry and refreshing, with a lingering hoppy astringency. Bitter and dry, just how I love my IIPAs. Excellent.
