3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to overlord for the bottle. Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a tulip. Color is a moderate amber with a bit of an orangish tint. Two-finger white head falls somewhat quickly with an average amount of lacing getting left behind. Nose is very nice with a pretty hefty dose of both tropical and citrus fruits. The taste scales back and doesn’t hit as hard as the nose, but there’s still a bit there and a nice bitterness. Small malt presence. Drinks quite well and I was glad to be able to try this. Thanks again, Mike.

On tap at Young & Jackon’s 200515. Big big beer with a tonne of big bold hop aromas and flavour. Thick in the mouth and leaves a resinous feel on the tongue.

Definitely the best thing I’ve had from these guys. Big floral piney nose with pale malt in the background. The hops hit the tongue on initial sip. Full bodied, moderately dry, nice malt backbone. Well balanced. A fair amount of tropical fruit. Very nice IIPA.

Bottle at home. Hazy yellowish orange pour, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, tangerine, mango and some wheat. Flavor is quite bitter, citrus fruits, slightly spicy and somewhat floral with a hint of butter. Nice and very fruity IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Beverages4Less. Was looking forward to this one, having enjoyed a similar brew from KS. The pour was extremely inviting, a lustrous gleaming orange with a two-finger creamy head and abundant sticky retention. Aroma is fairly nice, with inviting sweetness a bit to the fore of the bitter, piney hop smell. Nice creamy mouthfeel. But the taste was a bit of a letdown, with bready malts dominating and some oxidation evident. Seems like this one’s past its prime.
