4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to jimiantz for this. Pours hazy reddish gold with a small white foamy top and good lacing. Reader beware, I am drinking this past an "acceptable" age for a DIPA. Hops are still very prevalent in this. Aroma is a wall of centennial pine and quite dank. Taste is again a blast of hops, thick and resinous. I could only imagine this fresh, it would blow your mind. Obvious overage on the hop bitterness but still tons of sweet malt and caramel that tries to accomodate for the intense hop additions. Solid beer.

22oz bottle. Tulip glass. Not my favorite. Honeydew aroma, cloudy bronze pour, very little dingy head. Black pepper, grass and honey on the tongue. Biting boozy bitterness makes you think long and hard before taking another sip. Probably won't finish the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from box aroma. Pours a slightly hazed orange with a generous head. Aromas of some light tropical fruit and some pine sap. Taste is bitter upfront, followed by a sweet hoppy fruitiness and bitter finish. Pretty low carb which makes it highly chuggable. Decent, not mind blowing.
