2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on 5/8/13 from a wax dipped and capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours clear golden with an average white head that leaves average lace. The nose is more caramel malt than anything with some resin hops underlying. The flavor is the same, with the malts really dominating and some decent hops bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long malty and bitter hops finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour at home split, dark amber pour, pine and hop aroma, bitter hop taste. This beer is interesting because in the bottle is a infuser with hops for bottle conditioning.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz waxed bottle poured. Thanks Tcon for sharing. Pours a reddish gold with a thin oily head. Love the floating flavor pack inside. Different. Big hoppy aroma. Bitter hop, and juicy malt flavor. A little piney. A little sweet as well with some caramel malt flavor. Overall decent, not great. Glad to finally grab an Arizona beer. Look forward to try more from these guys. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, slight pine, touch of cardboard, hints of spice, slight grainy, husky notes in there, a bit of caramel. Taste was a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, slight orange into a bit of pine, slight husk, finishing overly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to pint glass
Spruce, flowers, resin, fresh basil, and lemongrass. Clear light amber with a thin white creamy head, but very little effervescence, so little retention. Taste is nutty, with spruce, pine resin, abd loads of bitterness.

sample at NIIPAC IIPA CHALLENGE @Gene McCarthy’s, Buffalo, NY. OK IIPA, rather lacking in the required oomph of a great IIPA. some citrus, caramel malts in the backbone. ok

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Interesting idea to leave a "flavor packet" in the bottle. In the end this is a pretty good AIPA. It’s got an unusually creamy mouthfeel, lightly grassy character. Easy to drink. (#5911, 1/2/2014)

Bomber. Thanks Dustin. Bottle says not your run of the mill IPA. Well I’ll disagree. It is pretty mediocre. Not that it’s a bad thing. Hoppy, bitter. Nothing really stands out, but still enjoyable.
