4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle into big sam adams glass. Amber straw ale w/ average white head, looks innocent. Nose is fucking thick & oily. Citrus, grass, pine, everything- at once. Carbonated yet syrupy mouthfeel that puckers and lasts. There are a shit ton of malts to pull this off, but all I can focus on is the hops (of course). Herbal, sticky, acidic hops. What separates this 100+ IBU IIPA from the rest though, is really how deep & unrelenting the bitterness digs. You hit so many different flavors: lemons, limes, & grapefruits. Pine needles between teeth & sap on fingers. Diesel herb & Lemon Head candy. Great beer!
Rant: How does this beer NOT have a 100% style rating??? Oh, & I just lol’ed at so many ratings like ’not even as hoppy or a palate wrecker as -insert whateva’ your favorite/typical amazing 7% IPA is-’.......Yeah, OK.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Where and how: bottle 355? ml
Aroma Bold? Yes! Hop galore, West Coast in single capsule. Sharp, even tad peppery line, citrus with fused sugars on smooth vodka.
Top: lighter yet lasting white top.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : .
Taste: Quiet hoppy, well very hoppy yet not super aggressive bold bitterness as one might be afraid to be. Citrusy with hint of rhubarb. Profile that hop heads will love it. It has all right keys in play.
Other notes solid old school 2 IPA.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours brown amber with a nice white foam. Aroma is earthy, caramel, blackberries. The beer is very bitter and tart to start. Feels like it’s all alpha-acid. I am not digging this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Unclear orange copper, lasting firm fine tan foam. Pungent grapefruit herbal hop aroma. Bitter grapefruity citrus herbal spicy hop taste well balanced with sweet caramel malt. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. More of a palate shocker, and: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome beer. Very hoppy aromas and flavors but balanced well enough with a slightly sweet malt backbone. Bitter but still drinkable.
