3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange and grapefruit with a hops aroma. Oddly very malty flavor at first. The aroma didn’t match the flavor. Extreme bitterness takes over. Too bitter and unbalanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a nice opaque deep gold body that has a copper core and supports a near white head. The aroma offers up a mix of juicy smelling mango and tangelo and pineapple and then it gets into some resiny pine hoppiness. The taste starts with a mix of resiny pine hops and citrusy orange hoppiness. Toward midway it picks up spicy onion like hoppiness just as it starts to pick up some citrus hop juiciness. It attains mainly a blend of citrusy hops and resiny pine hops that are just not working together 100%. It’s fine and tasty but it doesn’t come together perfectly.

Aroma was very contrast and happy. Appearance was clear. Taste was good. Not to happy for the style. Very enjoyable IPA.

If tasted without other IPAs and on a summer day I think probably great. Small (at best) hints of fruit. Subtle hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
qa double ipa for a fortnight and a day #10...Smell is muted fruitiness and a vaporous boozy quality that I’m not excited to pull from an over 8% brew. If this is dry hopped, I’m not getting it. Heavy solvent taste and bittering hops. Seems the Bittering hops are taking center stage. I realize balance is overrated, but this is an astringent mess. For the alcohol level, this beer does nothing to hide it.
Mouthfeel and drinkability pull an average. Feelin a bit confused by this beer.
Really don’t enjoy slamming a beer, because there are so many good beers, great brewers, and it’s a tough gig. But, this is a major letdown.

Bottle thanks to Bob! Pours a hazy deep orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grapefruit and resin with a hint of underlying sweet citrus. Flavor starts with bitter grapefruit and has a growing sweet citrus note as well as a touch of pine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a creamy off-white head. Mixed fresh citrus came as the cap left, and the pour smells of light caramel and lots of citrusy zest. Med body or better. It starts with instant hop burn, shows a little caramel, does citrus then moves on to zest and mixed citrus fruit. Finishes dry and bitter. And citrus. Wow.
