3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour, looking a nice bright hazy yellow with a firm white head. Nose was huge citrus--lemon and grapefruit as well as tart orange with a spiciness that showed itself on the tongue. Some tropical notes. Hoppier than expected, in a wonderful way. Citrus, fruit, and pepper, all well balanced in a full-bodied IPA. I could drink so much of this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus - light piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus/piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, some citrus/piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Too much alcohol considering the body - could use more bitterness and body to balance alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Samís in Durham, NC. No date! Oh well, I trust that it was bottled no more than 48 hours before I purchased it. The appearance is near perfect - a beautiful golden orange with a large, frothy white head and lacing thatís freaking LIFE-CHANGING!!! Seriously Iím a new man after seeing that lacing. Daaaayyyyuuuum! The aroma is good. Tropical fruits and citrus, maybe passionfruit and tangerine. The flavor is balanced, slightly east coasty but with a good hop kick. The balance is solid. Nice and oily on the palate with medium body. Gotta love IPAs. This is a good one.

Growler. Golden color with a big white head - honestly poured a lot lighter than I expected. Lots of tropical fruit and pine hop note in the aroma and flavor. Finish was smooth, kinda buttery. Very good.
