3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber purchased from Whole Foods. I rated the IPA earlier and I’m again surprised this is the 2nd rating for something I bought at WF. This beer has a really off aroma and taste- its the same (astringent?) taste I had on the IPA, but more or worse on this effort. Its clear and nicely filtered but man there is something really not enjoyable from what could be considered a Hop Monster of a beer. Hopefully they keep tweaking things and this beer raises to the Cali DIPA level.

Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Citrus hop and malty aromas. Taste filled suit with pronounced pine cans caramel flavored. Good balance, body , and mouthfeel. A solid DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is very fragrant hops. Plenty of pine, resin, and some citrus. Taste is very hoppy, but not overly bitter. Nice oily and malty backbone, but there is no question that this beer is hops first and everything else second. Slightly sweet.

On tap at Abv. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet melon fruity nose. The flavor is big sharp funky fruit. Odd. Big malty base. Super sweet. Like a triple ipa. Lots of flavors. Melons. Resin. Biscuit. Solid.

This one is worth the price. Excellent malt/hop balance, great mouthfeel, solid finish. A good one to crack open after work and nurse during a game.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th May 2015: on tap in the Yard House, Irvine. Yet another hop bomb, this light amber one had a white head and an aroma of citrusy fruits dragged through the dirt. Bitter and hop laden from the first sip to the last, could have been any number of West Coast breweries DIPA (Hanger 24 for instance). Decent and a delight for any hop lover.
