brokensail (12519) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the man! Pours copper with a creamy/foamy/bubbly light beige head. Hop aroma is dank! It’s not harsh. It’s just very heavy duty. Floral and citrus, probably. Full bodied. It’s got a lot of light roast malt. It’s almost suggesting barley wine. But there is a load of citrus, floral and resin hop. Curl around this and take a nap. Succulent. Finishes both dry and sweet. Taste is just wonderful. Makes my salivary glands ache with pleasure.

Not in your face hops, faded or this is it as should have been recent batch. Still nicely drinkable, thanks StephanSD.

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldn’t want a pint of this. Decent.

olio (7371) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a large white head. Hops and tropical fruits on the nose, orange peel, some pine needles and lots of caramel malts. Sweetish orange, mango, some apricot, caramel malts and resinous hops. Full-bodied, bitter fruity palate, lingering sweetish caramel finish. Nice balance and alcohol is well hidden. On a side note, goes well with spicy food.
