3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s hard to judge a beer like this, one that travels across the country into a store I frequent and then into my fridge. It pours a amber orange color with a medium off white creamy head. Big citrus aroma. Lots of orange and grapefruit peel. Flavor is big and bitter, strong citrus notes, notes of sweet malt and sugar cookie. Finishes with a resin and citrus hop note. Medium bodied, easy to drink. Pretty solid, albeit unspectacular.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours cloudy golden orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, pine and caramel malts - great nose. Flavour is pungent, with strong notes of piney citrusy hops, some grapefruit and other light tropical fruits, and a thin caramel biscuity malt backing. Very hoppy, with very little malt backing but just enough to balance the body - leaves a medium astringency. Excellent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber ordered on LetsPour. Pours a cloudy darkish orange color with a nice 1 finger head that fades quickly. Aroma is somewhat faint for an Imperial IPA. Oranges mostly with some light tropical fruit and flowers. Taste is a definite hop bomb. Very light sweetness at the start but a very strong bitterness citrus taste takes over. Not a big fan of this, tastes like I’m chewing on a bitter orange peel. Very dry and a little tart in the finish too.
