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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an attractive copper color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is dank hops, juicy citrus, some pine, light tropical fruit, light bread and some dry alcohol. Taste is complex, dank hops, citrus meat, grapefruit rind, bitter pine, a punch of acidic bitter citrus and some light floral fruity notes in there. Malt profile is there but only adds slight balance. This is a tasty hop bomb.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep gold, clear.
Medium full body, high carbonation, low heat, intense flavor, long palate, tasty finish.
Very bitter, dry.
Intensely hoppy, floral, not negligible malt.
Invigorating and exuberant, not a session beer.

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.
