Yet another winner from Full Sails. Beautiful orange color with plenty of head. Nose is a bit stuffy but I get some citrus on the aroma. The body is wonderfully bitter with just the right amount of malt.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange copper with a small off white head diminishing quickly to nothing. The aroma is a floral hop and pine. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and caramel with a nice light bitter finish. A very good IIPA from Full Sail.

Delicious but unrefined IPA. Well done and worth the price.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a minuscule off-white head that immediately fades into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing.
Floral hop aroma with subtle earthy pine along with juicy citrus notes and sweet malts. Slight spicy and grassy but the fruit notes dominate the hop profile in the nose. Lots of orange peel along with some mango and grapefruit. Subtle malts with hints of caramel and biscuit.
Medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops up front that linger over the sweeter notes and malt backbone into a bone dry finish. Very earthy with lots of grassy pine dominating the flavor. In opposition to the nose, this beer is more bitter than sweet with faint citrus fruit notes, mostly grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet malt backbone provides decent balance with some caramel and biscuit. Boozy heat toward the end of the palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from Samís, Durham. Pretty average, with a fluffy sweet malty base and a nice smooth body. Hops are there as part of a general malty character - though it works well with the nicely creamy mouthfeel. But itís not the kind of fruity, refreshing thing I had in mind.
