Bottle from CBB. It pours a deep gold with a nice head of foam. Earthy pine flavor, kind of bark like though. Interesting aroma.

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark amber-orange beer with a modest foam left; aroma of peaches and apricots; light resiney hoppiness; full-bodied, a fair yet subtle carbonation; very bitter; long caramelish, very fruity and piney hoppy finish - assertive and robust

Very much one of the better IPAs. The uniqueness here is that there’s a pinge of malty sweetness, almost floral in taste. I can’t say I have had another IPA like this one, and that’s a good thing.

Bomber. At Belgrade tasting. Thanks ippopotamo36 for hauling this from Italy! A long way around to try a West Coast IPA in Bg. Hazed orange. Decent foam. Grainy malt, some fruity hop, but nothing too distinct. Nice enough but doesn’t stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: tulip glass. Pours nice cloudy orange, soft white head. Nice spruce, slight resin on the nose, mildly bitter, oily finish. Again, maybe a fresher bottle would carry through the aroma but it’s mostly malty and bitter - this IPA has boundaries. Still, quite a nice summary day brew....
