3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bitter and astringent IPA, with some nice citrus lingering flavor. Light, hazy amber with creamy head. Light aroma of grapefruit, citrus, hops. Taste is mostly hops with faint malt backbone. Pretty good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a hazy darker gold to orange with a thick eggshell head that leaves some thick, intricate lacing. Nice hoppy nose with grassy, citrus, hay, honey and sweet grain, and yeasty dough. Fairly sweet flavor, quite bitter. Medium bodied, actively carbed, a touch oily, bright, with a doughy citric bitter finish. Nice brew, mellow compared to hop bombs no doubt, but that’s why it’s a "classic." Reminds me of Anchor Liberty, which I love. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This isn’t quite what I thought it’d be. Pours had with a gushing cap. Aroma is enticing: I’m getting bursting hops & wet skunk weed here.. But .... There’s something falling flat on the taste here. There’s also a twang in the carbonation here that steals from the show. Interesting if not a bit underwhelming.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof, Bern
Hazy light amber color, with medium head. Mild malt aroma, some grass. Lean mouthfeel; there is an ordinary flavor of caramel with light toffee, very light cereals, lightly biscuity; quite strong bitterness, with resins, but no hop fruitiness.
It has no BBE date, but it must be old.

Good sized bright white head of fine bubbles. Light tangerine aroma with some soft malts and buttery biscuits. Color s a hazy golden orange. Moderate bitterness in the flavor with oranges, flowers, dry dusty grains and some dough. Flavor is good up front then kind of mellows out to not much! An ok IPA.
