Aroma muy floral y lupulado con algun toque a naranja. En boca empieza muy suave, dejando un retrogusto durarero y bueno.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber courtesy of pellegjr - cheers Joey my friend! Pours hazy amber/orange with big off white head and plenty of thick lacing down the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, blood orange, lemon peel, spices, soapy yeast, light caramel. Taste mirrors the aroma to the letter with plenty of pithy grapefruit and orange notes alongside some interesting spice notes from the rye. Some slight soapy notes in there too, but doesn't detract from the experience too much. Medium mouthfeel. Bitterness level is pretty zingy but by no means overpowering, light pine and heavier citrus notes linger on the palate. Interesting Rye IPA - glad to have tried it!

22 ounce. Bitter aroma and taste. Slightly sweet on top. Maybe the rye gives off the green pepper bit. Overall, carbonated taste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. The pour is a copper color with a thin off-white head on top. The aroma shows a sharp grapefruit scent with some spicy rye bread and herbal notes. The first few sips uncovers a sturdy slick sweet malt to go with peach, grapefruit, and spicy rye. Either I’ve started to get more familiar with Rye IPAs or the rye is a little more noticeable here than most others I’ve had. The finish is fairly bitter and spicy with some lingering citrus rind and floral flavors. This is a tad too sticky sweet on the palate. Otherwise I have no major complaints. It’s easy enough to drink and pretty tasty stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle
I was not sure what to make of this release when I read the description online. Even so I figured it was worth a bottle (or two) when it was obvious it would not be a brewery only release. Their other IPAs are better. Check this out while it is fresh for something a bit different.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated caramel base glows like a brilliant dying sunset. Eggshell head is dense for a while before relaxing to almost nothing. Rye bread, peanut butter, rose petals, and shiny new pennies sweeten the air.
Flavor / Palate - The warmth and bitterness make an immediate mark. Cherries and rye coat the palate with a dense texture. Maple, rose petals, and honey linger as the liquid transitions to a lazy bitterness. This might be a bit heavy handed at times but while fresh holds its own against other IPAs on the market.
