3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, creamy head. Very nice malt aroma, malt mash. Nice malt flavor; the bitterness is high, the hop gives just a light citrusy touch.
Don’t expect much of a West Coast style beer, just a good old IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a creamy off-white head. Mixed evergreen and grapefruit aromas. Med body. Flavor is very mixed. Sort of a contest between pine and grapefruit rind, and the latter survives into the finish. Just excellent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours golden in color with a white head.
S: Wow, moderately hoppy. Amazing. That’s not to say this beer is without the seemingly necessary pounds of caramel, toffee, and bread. A bit of citrus peel and pine are the hop aromas.
T: Toffee and brown sugar with just a little bit of hop flavor. There is a touch of grass and pine, only a moderate bitterness. The flavor is not as good as the aroma, which was only barely acceptable.
M: Medium bodied with just a medium carbonation.
O: This one gave me some false hope, but it was another failure.
