3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber from Spirits Brick. Pours a sligjtly hazy golden orange with an a large tight foamy white head. Aroma is sligjtly honey sweet, citrus rind, lemon, pepper, bread. Fuller bodied that is creamy with average carbonation and a full finish. Flavor of citrus rind, lemon, grapefruit, crusty bread. Nice but I wish the hops were a touch more bitter and Iím surprised at how how full this beer is, not necessarily bad just different for an IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with golden yellowish hues when held to a light and a two finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Large chunks of soapy lacing are left behind.
Sweet citrus hop aroma with lots of floral notes and resinous oils. Earthy with hints of pine and sticky buds but the nose of this beer is full of sweet tropical and citrus fruit. Lots of grapefruit and pineapple along with some lemon and orange peel. Faint grainy, biscuit malt presence underneath.
Medium bodied with a blast of bitter earthy hops up front but the dryness is quickly countered by sweet citrus notes, pale malt and alcohol heat. Floral and earthy up front with lots of dry, sticky pine flavor that lingers over the sweeter notes into the finish. Lots of sweet fruit notes mid-palate from the hops giving off hints of pineapple, grapefruit, mango and orange peel. Underneath there is a subtle grainy malt presence with biscuit and faint graham cracker notes. Some alcohol heat/boozy sweetness toward the end of the palate. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Iím happy that I found this one. Recommended!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(22oz bomber from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours a hazy golden color with 2 finger chunky white head. Carbonation is moderate though. Some nice lacing also is developing as the head dissipates. Aroma has some tart peach, rock candy, mango, and green apple. Quite nice. Taste is semi-sweet malt followed by some bitterness. Thin bodied with a dry, bitter finish. The hops dont overwhelm you and blast your palate. I gotta say, this is one really good IPA. Iíll definitely get more of this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange color with a lasting, foamy head. Smells of citrus, leather, and flowers. Pretty smooth with a bitter finish, though it tended to leave a bit of an unpleasant feel in my mouth. Very average IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. Bottle. Pour is hazy light amber with a white soapy head that dissipates to a thin film and thicker collar. Aroma is light herbal flowers and resinous. Taste is bitter hops that taste of herbal tea and flowers and finishes resinous and malty. Palate is thin with a chaulky dry mouthfeel. Tasty, but not overpowering. Good for a $3.99 bomber!
