3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2011 What a great surprise from Full Sail. Beautiful orange color and with flavor to match. The orange and lemon really shine, but are perfectly matched by the 5 different hops. Nose is ok. Palate is great - fruity sweet up front and bitter as hell on the back. This may be one of the best "Summer IPA’s" I’ve ever had. I opened this intending on sharing, but I think I might just drink the whole bomber right now.

Bottle. Rusty amber with a moderate, fizzy white head. Aroma is hoppy but not the hop bomb I was expecting. Tropical fruit, mango, peach, caramel, light grapefruit and sweet malt in the nose. Taste is big tropical fruit, soft pine, grapefruit juice, peach, sweet malt, soft caramel and melon. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a slight syrupyness to it. Finishes with more tropical fruit, floral hops, pine, grapefruit, melon, caramel, herbal hops and sweet malt.
