3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber gold with a foamy beige 3 finger head. Aroma is very floral. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is very mild malt with a lot of floral and a little citrus for hop. Finishes definitely bitter. Bitter lingers. Having said that, it does seem a bit under flavored. Don’t know why. It has a lot of bitter. Maybe I’ve been over doing Impy styles. This is a really good and bitter IPA.

Rich orange pour, white head. Thanks to walter for this one. AKA Dionysus. Tart oranges, citrus peel, resin, honey, syrup. Flavor is bitter and hoppy followed by a nice honey malt and fruity note. Pretty good brew!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
medium light burnt orange color, medium to dark tan head. first guess is noble or noble-like hops, which has to be the willamette (earthy, mineralic, dried grass), and along with what seems like a small amount of cara-pils or marris otter it has a somewhat chalky, soil-like dried vegetable smell and flavor (the zues hops I guess add the high acid/low flavor bitterness, which seems a bit transparent - I prefer high acid columbus-like hop character to be combined with more fruit/citrus cascade-like hop character). rough body, the MO of full sail, but a quality of their house character and mashing that doesn’t bug me too much. decent IPA that leans east but isn’t something I’d find myself craving.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note and faint malty notes. The taste is very bitter, resiny and herbal hops with some green apple notes. Medium bodied. Interesting, but not really to my liking.
