3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the Foodery in Philly. A pretty dark DIPA, a darker shade of orangish-amber with a one-finger-plus off-white head and good lacing. Pretty nice hoppy aroma with loads of citrus and pine, with lots of malt complexity, rye, honey, and caramel. Caramel and honey malt base with some interesting rye notes. A little too malty if you ask me, but tasty nonetheless. Big citrus (grapefruit) and pine hop notes. Fairly full-bodied with considerable syrupiness. Pretty good overall - a beer with its own identity and some good things going for it. Only criticism really is that it’s too malt-forward.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Did I just walk through a pine forest? Ruby gold on the pour with a dense tan head and lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Creamy malt and juicy hops followed by a long bitter finish. The 10% ABV is well hidden enough to lead one to a fierce buzz. Nice lacing on the pint when consuming. This is a tongue bruiser for sure!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gorgeous amber gold, light retention for how thick the beer is. Gobs and gobs of grapefruit citrus on the nose more than fair amounts of pine hops as well, with a slight earthy perhaps cedar note, hefty malt notes as well. Cedar right off the bat leaves way for the super sweet and sticky citrus/pine, finish is earthy/spicy; good malt backbone! By far the best beer I’ve had for awhile, Sneaky bastard!

12oz bottle. Cloudy amber pour with a decent head and lacing. Nice citrus and piney hops and very drinkable - watch out. Similar to a Dogfish 90. Well done.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Newport News, VA. Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine needles. The flavor is grapefruit, pineapple, and finishes clean and grassy. Not very well balanced yet dangerously drinkable. I really liked this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very sweet and hoppy with both caramel malt and pine - citrus hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a large head for the style. The flavor is strong without being astringent with all the elements from the aroma. The palate is right for the style. Overall a well crafted IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a medium copper color, medium sized white head. Aroma was hoppy, malty, grapefruit notes, touch of grassy hops. Flavor was grapefruit citrus, with solid medium sweet malty backing. I let this one sit out for a few hours and it was awesome when it reached ~50 something degrees. Alcohol noticeable, but not overwhelming for 10 percent.
