4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An intense grapefruit, citrus and slightly floral aroma. Golden straw in color, and a very well-balanced body and bitterness. This beer showcases the cascade hop very well, and the fruity hop flavor is really representative of what an American IPA should showcase. Win.

Bottle. Deep clear orange with a thick head. Aroma is super bitter hop. Flavour is deep citrus, grapefruit with a tremendous lingering finish. Strength is hidden very well

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Absolutely fantastic brew. Color is golden amber. Smell of citrus, spicy hops, mild pine. Taste has several things i love, pineapple, grapefruit, slight mango, slight peach, mild pine and a sweet malt backbone throughout to balance and showcase the hops. medium mouthfeel and awesome laing on the glass throughout the beer. crisp hop finish leaves me craving the next sip. definitely a top 5 double IPA for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
perfect orange with about two fingers of creamy white head. Grapefruit, tangerine, maybe some peach and pine on the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Fruity notes from the hops are present, but the malt is shown nicely as well. No note at all of the 9.5%, this is a fantastic double IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Just when I thought I was getting sick of IPA’s...
Aroma is citrus and spice with a huge hit of hoppy pineapple and grapefruit
Taste is much like the aroma with a sweet malt background. I won’t call it a backbone but it’s there.
Palate is dry and thin, refreshing.
Overall: Some of my IPA love returned to me with this bomber.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear pour, sticky head, golden color. Smells of pine and citrus hops. Grapefruit notes for flavor. Nice bite on the finish, disguises the alcohol. One of my favorites.
