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.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with a snow-white fluffy head. Hoppy, sprucey aroma with a piney twist. Flavor was initially bland but brightens up as it warms. Decent bittersweet citrus notes, some biscuit like maltiness, a touch of maple syrup. Mouthfeel is thick enough, decent amount of spritz to keep it interesting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from the State Store. Pours a very nice dark orange color with a large white head. The aroma is caramel, some citrus and spices. The flavor is not very good, it has lots of bitterness but not a lot of hop flavors, not fruity, lots of caramel malts, something akin to dirtiness, earthy. Some of the traditional IIPA is in there but not enough and what is there isnít pleasant. Still, it is drinkable. Reminds me of amber ale with some dirty bitterness in it.

Iím not always a fan of the hoppy beers Full Sail produces, but they did a fair job here - hazy orange pour - soapy lace - malt in the aroma is equal parts sweet and biscuit - the citra hops really pop in the nose, adding a bunch of fresh citrus character - bracingly bitter up front, with the cascade really coming through - sweet crystal malts comes from behind that, but doesnít hang around to long - dries out pretty well, becoming very Biscuity, which works well with the second punch of hops on the tail end - a lot of citrus and peppery character in the finish - pretty good, especially for the price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On sale for $3.40, so figured Iíd give it a try. Pours clear orange red with nice lacing white head, aroma has notes of grass, caramel, citrus notes with tangerine, grapefruit, some slight biscuit. Taste is fairly clean, with notes of tangerine and orange, some grass and pine notes, touch of biscuit and caramel, finishing bitter and dry. Not bad!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very rich sweet aroma; inbetween a 90 and 120-minute Dogfish. The flavor is a bit less in mouthfeel than what youíd expect but has a very strong finish. Lots of bittering hops, yet just not that great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at PIB, pours hazy copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is intensely citrusy hoppy; harsh bitterness / very one-sided. Flavour is very one-sided as well on the hops; pretty sharp with no malt balance. Not so well-made to be honest. The hops are almost stale and very hash (not in a good way, this coming from a IIPA lover). Drinkable.
