3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and a bit of pine. Taste of booze and pine and a nice tropical flavor hidden behind the pine and booze. Good bitterness. Overall a good beer that to me would be better with a less boozy taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma of slightly stale fruity, "green" and piney hops and some malt. Sweetish flavor with malt, stale fruity and piney hops and a very bitter finish. OK, could be fresher. Also too heavy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber purchased at Beverage Warehouse in Los Angeles ($8.99). Pours a hazy gold-orange-amber hue with two fingers of off-white colored foam. AROMA of tropical fruit (creamy mango and pineapple), peaches and cream, fresh-cut grapefruit and tangerine, rainy pine forest, and some honey maltiness. FLAVOR of sappy pine, sharp grapefruit, some tropical fruit, spicy hops, significant caramel malts, and a bit of booze. Bitter finish with a tinge of sweetness. Despite the hint of booze, this actually goes down quite easily for 10.1% which could make this a bit on the dangerous side. Was hoping for more tropical notes from the Kiwi hops, but still a nice "triple" IPA and one that I look forward to seeing every year. (670, 936)

Smells like a fresh hop. Taste is extremely hoppy with a slight pine taste. A fairly unique tasting beer, pretty enjoyable.
I had this from a bottle.

Pours a cloudy copper with off white head. Light lacing present. There’s a pine, citrus, and earthy aroma. Medium body that was smooth and creamy on the palate, with a mildly bitter finish that sticks around. Flavor’s of tropical fruit, pine, and spices.
