4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a thin greenish head. Some hop particles visible in the beer. Very aromatic, lots of floral and citrus aroma. Tastes very hoppy, significant but not overpowering bitterness, notes of citrus and spruce. Warming mouth feel, slightly sweet malt overtones. Finishes with a grassy hop taste. Very hoppy but still balanced. This is a pretty fantastic imp IPA for certain, one of the best!

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, faded hops, earthy bitterness, some funk. Disappointing based on other beers I’ve had from this brewery.

Bomber to taster (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks solid; malty though. A mostly transparent burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of bitter hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a bit of citrus too. Solid on the palate. A solid example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, tasted at Tmoney99’s 10K tasting. Labeled 100 IBU. Hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Light, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Bigger caramel malt. Kind of resiny, caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Nice big hop aroma, but I’m not crazy about this DIPA. Tastes like it could be fresher; pretty malty and sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep amber-orange with lace. big malty nose, hoppy, old school: caramel, oranges, grass. Sweet flavor, a bit big on the caramel and toffee, with oranges and good hops. Decent but a bit too sweet for me.

Bottle to tulip
I can’t believe I’ve never rated this before. Caramel, citrus, huge resin. Clear reddish amber and a thin white head. This is sweet caramel, a light citrus, and resin.

this is a great beer, limited release which is too bad, very complex and terrific mouth feel, layers of flavour, wonderful aroma, impossible to not sit up and pay attention at the first sip, alcohol is a touch too high, don’t miss a chance to try this
