2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Costa Mesa brewpub - Pours clear light amber with a foamy white head. Nose is caramelly sweet malt, muted pine hops, and not much else. Taste is tons of sweet honey malt, muted pine hops, and a long malty finish. Medium body with nice carbonation. Just too malty and not enough hop punch.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Strongly hopped grapefruit nose, with a toch of pine. Good hop presence. Good amount of maltiness in the finish. A little graininess as well. Alcohol is well hidden. Solid little sipper. Refreshing on a muggy day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle courtesy of freddy. Pours an amber-yellow color with a big off-white head. Very potent nose with lots of citrus, especially oranges and tangerines. The flavor is that of a hoppy-citrusy IPA with grapefruit, oranges and papaya set in a caramel malt base that is rich in toffee. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Very tasty brew, me like.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a slightly red with white head. Aroma is nice floral hops, some malts and a touch of citrus. Taste matches the aroma. Floral hops make this flowery but in a good way.

The definition of a great imperial ipa. Pours golden orange with some carbonation. Great hoppy flavor that gently lingers on the palate.

Bottle: Another strong, potent, over the top DIPA: it’s getting boring. It just may be time to explore other beer styles. Food Pairing: Strong cheese.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 The more you drink this the more you love it. Well hidden alcohol. 5.69 @ Grocery Outlet. This hits on all cylinders. Packed with flavors. Toasted sunflower shell, hops, bitterness and body are very enjoyable blending together in unison. Don’t pass it up!
Rerate: I had tis again at the same price! This beer is frickin’ unbelieveable! I may be my DNA beer match! Dry toasty sweet hops! Brilliant. Bad Ass Beer!!!!!
