4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 32oz bottle (which is what all bombers should be) - Pours a clear orange with lots of bubbles and a big head. Citrus and pine aroma. Real nice hoppy flavor. The citrus and pine is well balanced and not real bitter. Overall a really good IPA, not to citrusy as many of them tend to be.....A friend said this beer matches good with a Sharp Cheddar cheese so I’m breaking out some Hooks 10yr Cheddar to see.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Lagunitas Chicago Taproom. Intense resinous nastiness in initial sip. Mellows out a bit after that and tapers into cereal grain and water flavors. Seems well crafted, but far too resinous for my taste.
