4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 On tap @ Karl Strauss. Pours a mostly clear rust brown color with a fluffy beige head that left some great lacing. Tons of pine, citrus and resin on the nose. Big hoppy flavor with a good amount of sweet malt to add balance to the beer.

On tap @ Blue Foot Bar in North Park. Pours a medium amber with a ruby hue. Great lacing left on the glass. Nice grapefruit aroma and a nicely balanced finish. A pretty good one from the usually boring K.S.

Bomber from Bevmo. Medium amber in color. Sweet nose of citric hoppiness. Thick mouthfeel. Fairly sweet with a big hop bite. Big and syrupy. Grapefruit dominates. Alcohol is well hidden. Pretty tasty with a good mouthfeel.

Flaske: Gulorange let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af jordbær og let citrus. Smagen er let sprittet men stadig godt humlet. Meget velfungerende øl.

22oz bottle. Rating #55. Dark orange with an off-white head with really nice head retention. Aroma was citrus upfront with a little pine in the background. Thin body and light hops, more citrus and very easy to drink, not bad overall, just seemed to lack that little something. (1150)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, no date from Hollingshead, $5.99. Clear amber orange with a two finger yellowish white head, creamy with good retention. Loads of caramel malt up front in the aroma with citrus, pineapple, and resiny pine hops competing for dominance, floral hops hiding behind. Flavor still has a hearty malt backbone, with the hops staying mostly the same until the finish, where they turn into mangoes and berries. Semi-dry finish with some lisght alcohol and bitterness peaking at a 4-5. Full-body with moderate soft carbonation. Pretty tasty non-West Coast DIPA from the West Coast.

Pours clear golden with thick, solid sheets of lacy head. The nose was spicy. The flavors, they were hoppy, spicy, piney, and a bit resinous... the body was thick and syrupy, yet not too much so...the hops tend to turn grassy...the alcohol is pronounced, yet not really hot...there’s a stinging wetness thoug...a residual bitter metalicness of the hops, but really...in an overall setting...its not too shabby for the overrated style of double fucknut IPA.

The Sauvin tropical flavors and aromas are big and center. Yes grape and vine aromas too. Backed up solidly by a more standard west coast hop profile - citrus and pine, this is a solid brew. A bit too sweet but otherwise very good.

Huge passionfruit nose - I thought this must be galaxy hopped, not Nelson. Fairly straight forward DIPA body and texture wise, toffee, caramel and a bit helping of citrus and passionfruit. Very tropical. Unique and fun.
