3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of Suttree. I couldnít locate any date information on the bottle. The pour is a lightly hazed golden amber with a Ĺ inch dirty white head that falls fast. The aroma is floral sweet hop, sweet slightly resin malt, and a minimal amount of sweet alcohol. The taste is sharply sweet right away, floral, pineapple, and then the malt syrup sweet. As this beer warmed, the sweetness integrated a bit better, and the floral and pineapple became the main feature. Some pine hop becomes evident as well. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and only a faint dry alcohol finish. Overall, decent enough - though a bit too strong on the sweetness for my tastes. Thanks for sending this my way Phil.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden orange from the bottle with thin ring of off-white lacy head. Aroma is bready grain up front, then a nice piney hop presence on the back end. Taste is more resinous, nice grapefruit and pine notes from the hops with a bittersweet caramel malt finish. Pretty decent, a lot better than the normal Kashmir.

There was not the strong aroma present that would usually be associated with an Imperial IPA. That, however, was deceiving. The flavor was strong in this full-bodied ale. Also was very smooth for an Imperial. Good job.

Bomber pours clear golden with ring of near white head. Smells of alcohol burn and piney hops. Flavor is slightly better than the aroma but it still kinda burns on the way down. Not particularly my cup of tea.

Growler from Charleston Beer Exchange. Hoppy, smooth, and pretty strong. Definitely worth another buy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Medium white head atop clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, some alcohol, grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, pine, orange/grapefruit, some alcohol. Resinous medium body, some acidity. Adequate IIPA, but the alcohol presence prevents it from being something special.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Proof bottle shop. Orange pour with a medium frothy off-white and good retention. Visible carbonation. Aroma is soft caramel, tropical fruit juice, bread and pine. Tastes lean a little to the malty side with caramel sugars and then some of the bitter herbal, floral, pine. Background citrus. Buttery medium texture. Can feel the warmth, but not evident in the taste. I tend to like the more bitter DIPAs, but this was quite good. Well played.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy with some floral and sticky notes to it. Taste is nice and bitter, yet malty enough to balance it out and be smooth. Me gusta.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden copper pour with white head that lingers as thick white ring leaving some lacing. Very nice looking IPA. Tropical and citrus fruits mix with bready malt, floral/piney hops and lemongrass in the nose. Body is surprisingly light /med for such a big brew. Crisp carb and med dry finish. Well balanced with caramel sweetness, nice hop bite and some spice in the finish. Overall a very good DIPA. Alcohol is well hidden and itís very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another great beer from a fantastic small brewery! Clear deep gold color that produces a tight white head that gives up easily. The creaminess of the palate defies the filtered appearance. Biscuits and crackers are aided by light floral hops on the nose. Up front itís sweet but not cloying followed by a wash of grassy, piney, peppery hops. The ABV accentuates the peppery flavor. I think Iíll go back and get another!
