4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks so much to BLG for this. Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow with a moderate white head and good lacing. Aroma is big citrus and pine hop aroma with sweet malt and honey. Taste is a great blend of citrus hop, great warming bitterness to the palate and pine hop. Sweet malts and honey. Awesome beer. Wish I had more access.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice bright orange with a two finger off white head which fades to nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, biscuit malts, some honey sweetness, some tropical fruits, and a little booze. Taste is of bitter citrus, pine resin, honey, tropical fruits, and some sweet biscuit malts. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a dry, bitter, finish. Overall, a pretty nice , refreshing DIPA that could use a little more body

Very faint aromas of biscuit. Incredibly pale yellow-ish color. Massive bitter hops completely dominate the flavor of this beer. Intense presence of alcohol on the finish. Very subtle malts in the back. Overall, this is the exact kind of beer i love. Intense and bitter hops with big alcohol. I’d give this an A+ rating.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fresh bottle shared by Darrell Thanks Darrell.
The beer is hazy and light, golden orange with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers floral hops, some dank malt, a touch of lemon zest. The flavor is a bit of a disappointment. Medicinal and astringent, with toothpaste in the finish. Minty hops. Eh...not so much. Next.

Super delicious and fresh tasting. A bouquet of hops do a devious job of hiding the 9% abv here. Crisp, refreshing and pretty near perfect for the style.

Bomber from Windy City. Very hopped skunky nose. Quite pungent indeed. Strongly hopped. This brew has that sort of skunk bud quality to it. Alcohol is well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at brewpub-pours medium orange with a small soapy white head with some rocky things going on. nose is very strong C hops-big grapefruit and resin. flavors hold true to this with tons of c hop resin and bitterness. Not a very well rounded IIPA but does the trick. I wish i took better ratings on this one becasue i was too busy talking to some of the locals at the brewpub that were very friendly. some lite alcohol heat shows up in the finish. decent and will revisit next time im in the IE.
