4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, moderate gusher. aroma is well balanced grainy pine and distinct grapefruit. maltiness is pleasant and comes in bounds, earthy and organic. appearance is deep gold near ruby with active carb and floating island head, ring as well. flavor is substantial lightly darkened citrus up front and BIG lasting bitterness on tail end, booze is present but melds well into big, beefy maltiness. never comes across as offensive or even reveals on its own, just partners with the grain bill and rolls on through.

Draft - FW has this down. Nice citrus, piney, and slightly floral hop aroma and taste. Super solid sweet malt back bone. So glad these are starting to come in 12oz bottles.

Jedno z lepszych IIPA ever drunk. Mocna goryczka, w zupełności nie zalegająca, szybko znika. Aromat sosnowy, cytrusowy. Te nuty pojawiają się w smaku, z małym dodatkiem karmelu, ale odpowiednio wyważonym. Świetne piwo. Przy takim woltażu zaskakująco lekkie i mega pijalne. Tzw. zdradliwy skurwiel.

A great beer. Terrific IPA aroma and fresh taste. High bitterness and alcohol but still very easy to drink. Expected more sweetness and was happy not to find it. One of the best IPAs easily.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5/8/15 from bomber. Big 2 finger head on amber color. Not a strong aroma. Pine citrus spicy hop flavor. Balanced but leans toward malty. Not as good as Pliny the Elder.

Bomber - the aroma is a blast of citrus hops with a touch of maltiness. The appearance is perfect - clear golden amber, light & stable head, great lacing on the glass and great carbonation. Intense citrus bitterness with a hint of pine gives way to a malty body. A light herbaceousness couples with a millisecond of sweetness then followed by a long layered bitter hop aftertaste.

I WENT TO LIQUOR STORED LOOKINGS FOR PLINY (YEAH I LOVE IT) AND I ALL COULD FIND WAS THIS CRAPPY BEER FROM TIRE MAKERS. NO RUBBER TIRE FLAYVER LIKE OTHER FIRESTONES BUT, IT NEED MORE HOPS AND DEOS NOT TASTE ANYTHING LIKE PLINY. NOT AN IPA, AND I ONLY LIKE INDIAN STYLE IPAS’. IT HAS GOOPY FEEL IN MY STOMACH AND LESS ALCOHOLS THAN A USUAL LAGER STYLE. IT; COULD USED 100PLUS MORE IUB’s OR AT LEAST SOME MORE FLAVOR FROM HOPS. VERY BAD, I WARNED YU. YOUR WELCOME.
