3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, slightly reddish amber, bit of an off-white head. Aroma is decidedly hoppy with a grapefruit underpinning. Strongly hoppy flavor has more than a hint of sour citrus, more orange than grapefruit, and just a touch of honey sweetness. Lively texture is on the viscous side and leaves behind a pleasant and persistent tingle. Hop to it.

Crystal clear orange with a thick off white head. Kind of dull citrusy aroma. Starts with a harsh but dull hop bite. Medium bodied, smooth. Fairly well balanced.

Beer #17 Asheville trip. Medium orange, had a slight head. Aroma citric and slightly floral hop. Flavor was a dead on match, with enough malt backbone to keep it together. They also had a dry-hopped cask version of it that had just been tapped - very similar, but the green hop flavors of the dry hopping really came through in the cask version, almost like a Randall. A well done IPA, although for me it wasn’t quite my favorite hop profile.

Bomber-what a nice surprise as I never came across the brew. Pours a dark orange with a small, white head. Large citrus and hoppy aroma. The taste was similar. Nice grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Really good stuff. Brewery, 4.00.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Hazy, amber body. Frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Long-lasting bitterness. Taste of raw grain, alpha acids. Leafy hops. Not a favorite combination, but this works better than most like this. Good balance, but couldn’t drink more than one glass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40F.
Pours clear copper with a one finger off-white head that recedes to a light cap with large foamy bubbles on the ring, leaves some webs of lacing behind. Fairly dark for an IPA.
Aroma is primarily grapefruit, some orange, a little pine, with bread and caramel malt underneath. Simple. Moderate to good strength.
Flavor is nice grapefruit rind, earthy hops, bit of pine, decent caramel malt backbone in the middle, good bitterness on the finish, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, little sticky, moderate carbonation, feels a little watery at times?
Average IPA. Decent grapefruit kick and that’s about it.
