Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours darkish amber/gold with a very transient head. Aroma seems to be peach backed by resin. Med + body. Flavor is very bitter/hoppy. I’m voting for resin, earth and fruit. It’s a mouth burner! There is a hint of malt backbone. It finishes with fruit coming forth more strongly. This is really good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber picked up at the brewery pours with a clear gold body that has copper hues and supports an off white head. The aroma pushes up a mix of mango, tangelo and floral hoppiness ringed thinly by some spicy onion like hops. This is an inviting aroma. The taste starts with a three headed hop attacked from tangelo and mango and spicy mildly dank onion like hoppiness as well as a thin rings of floral hops out at the edges of the flavor. It gets a little more sweet and juicy with citrus and mango to midway before those notes fade into the finish. Darn nice IIPA that is full in flavor yet somewhat tame and soft in sweet citrus juiciness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hollingshead. ($7.50 for 16-20oz, whatever the tap spits out) Pours a light yellow to slight orange with very minimal head. Again, goes back to how this was poured and the glassware. The old man was doing it so you got a better value, IE not 4" of head. Aroma is peach, honeysuckle flower, slight grass. Taste is very fruit forward to the front of the taste with stone fruit again dominating but then dissipates and becomes very sweet. Overall, not a bad DIPA but something I’d not buy a bomber of.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Finally trying the regular version. Light amber colored beer with a white head. Smells tropical and peach candy forward. Big time pine, a touch of booze, and some caramel maltiness. Nice grapefruit, as well. Really intense palate. Tons of pine and resinous bitterness. Sweet caramel and peach candy, along with some pineapple. A bit of floral character, nice grapefruit, and oranges. Pretty solid, though a bit sweet.
