3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 22oz. Bottle. Golden amber, with nice big fluffy head, which hangs on to the sides. Malty nose mixed with fruity hops. Big flavors of sweet malts with fruits like mango and pineapple. Hop flavors along with well balanced bitterness. Some burn in the finish. Usually I don’t like my Imp IPAs too malty, but there is almost enough hop to counter this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber poured into pint glass. I recognize the aroma of the Nelson hops, but this is more pungent on the nose than other Nelson hopped beers I’ve had. Its really cloudy (where Alpine Nelson is perfectly clear) with a mandarin orange color. Malty taste and chewy texture. It is a decent beer but wont hold up to other exceptional Double IPA’s.

pours beautiful deep orange, with minimal head. Bitter hops on the nose, and a white grape like fruit note that’s very pleasant. Flavor brings bitter hops, with a nice fruity character. Passion fruit, tropical fruit and wine grape. Alcohol has almost no presence. A good DIPA

20oz bottled I shared with my good firiend and a hop addict from San Diego, Paul, at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios. It was my last beer at the end of my L.A. Visit. Aroma of citrus, malt, some alcohol. Color was shiny golden yellow. Taste citrus, bitter hops, malt backbone. Alcohol present but smartly hidden. Overall a great fresh and hoppy DIPA with more hops and less malt. I like that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of rose petals, caramel and alcohol, hint of toasted nuts. Appearance is copper/amber colored brew with thin head and semi clear color in the light. Taste is initially sweet from lots of malted barley, but not crazy the first of the taste is sweet brew and 3 seconds later the hops come to the rescue and even out the sip. Leaving a slight layer of spice and earthy hop on the tongue. Overall its not bad, well crafted and balanced but it needs a little something its overall sweet but nice to sip.
