4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Mostly caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Overall, very good. Not as good as some other beers out there, but I would gladly drink this any day.

12 oz. can from Total Wine - Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt. Did I mention the aroma is toasted malt. Where’s the hops? This is a 2IPA, correct? Maybe I got a old can? The flavor isn’t any better. The finish is fairly smooth and has a hint of pineapple. Medium body. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. The beer isn’t bad, it’s just not a 2IPA. NO HOPS!

12oz bottle brought over by JoetheYounger, thanks Joe. Rating #14. Appearance is dark brown with a little orange around the edges, pretty dark for a double IPA. Big citrus aroma, grapefruit mainly, but there is a little orange sweetness as well. Light sweetness, mild hops and more grapefruit, but pretty nicely balanced, not too shabby. (1203)

Thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a clear golden orange from the can with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is light, but resinous citrus from the heavy cascade and a faint sweet maltiness. Taste is bigger, but a hint of soapy middle, bitterness takes over and lingers. Soft carbonation, good balance, minimal booziness, not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Relatively smooth for a strong beer, orange amber with abundant creamy off white head. Hoppy, piney aroma leads to very astringent taste, sharp bitterness lingers long after. Still smooth enough to mask to the high abv. Nicely done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Casa De Oro. Very hazy orange color upon pouring. Looks like a very unfiltered hefe. Sweet nose with only a moderate amount of hoppiness. Very dry and spiced hops up front. A bit of sweetness, finishing of with some sharp peppery hops. A little alcohol as well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is maybe a bit stale but has notes of grapefruit, mango, citrus, caramel and blackberries. Quite fresh aroma with a nicely malty backbone. Taste is light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of grass, caramel and biscuit. Medium bodied with a bit high carbonation. OK DIPA, especially for the price ($4).
