3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
[September 1, 2010]
Bomber from the CBX. Pours a cloudy bright orange with a white head. The aroma is not super strong like I prefer my IPA’s, but it is clean and hoppy. Notes of lemons, grass and cough drops. The flavor is bright, zesty and non-aggressive. There is juicy citrus all over. It’s a refreshing IPA and a little different than what I’d expect from a west coast brewer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours golden with a modest beige head and bits of sticky lacing. Nose is mostly floral with some citrus and grapefruit. Wet mouthful reveals a bit more of the grapefruit and a nice floral bitterness. Lingering finish is bitter, but lightly sweet. Basic and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp and refreshing but a little light on the hops. Grass and herbal notes. Touch of grapefruit on the finish. Some toasty bread malts give this a little more of a unique malt body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at Brewforia, pours a hazy dingy orange with a small sandy colored head. Faint fruity aroma. Peaches and apples. Dry lively crisp palatte. Not sure how this qualifia as an IPA. The bitterness is there...though I can’t find all 70 IBUs that Full Sail claims. ECM more lacking is the hop flavor. Not un pleasent, just not hoppy. I continue to be inderwelmed by their "sun" series in general.
