3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy golden amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is floral and pine with some mildly roasted malt. Med body, almost. Flavor is rather floral, then a little resin, then some mildly gritty/bready malt. More dry than not, and finishes bitter. Good drink. Want to try a double version.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Found a date on the bottle that says: "04.1614."
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy orange color with a slight transparency about it allowing for some light carbonation to be seen rising. The lacing is fairly thick and shows some nice looking rings.
The smell showcases a nice citrus to pine aroma and lets in a fairly nice sweet maltiness as it warms.
The taste had a nice bittersweetness all the way through letting the citrus and piney hops combine wonderfully with the malts. The aftertaste was the typical AIPA of sorts of letting a great bittersweet pine and citrus combine pretty good. There was a nice long dry bittersweet finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium on the body and still carried a good harshness to assault my mouth and tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA well worthy of having again.
