Bottle. Brown, almost completely foggy. Small light brown head. Aroma has grapefruit and citrus.
Taste has citrus, some malt on the background on the middle. Nice smooth aftertaste with a good level of bitterness. Hop levels are pretty high, really close to the maximum for this beer. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- pours a hazy rich amber with a light red one finger of head and good lacing. S- floral notes are strong with some caramel malts, Belgium yeast, bubble gum and pine resin. M- medium viscous body with a sticky medium palate and good carbonation. T- floral and resin notes start off. Cinnamon shows some vitality when colder. Sweet caramel malts, sugar water, candies apples and faint honey are next. Some clove character like a saison follow with the pronounced ending featuring some citrus character and more malts. Good autumn IPA.

Very dark for an IIPA. Pine cone aroma, not all found in the taste, which is slightly sour. Very creamy mouth feel

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4-pack for 6.99. Pours a clear golden amber with an off-white head. Smells mostly like floral hops but there is a malt aroma in there as well. Taste is quite balanced between the two flavors with a toffee malt flavor coming through pretty strongly. Hoppy bitterness dominates the end though. Body is thicker with a creamy texture as well. Quite a good DIPA that hides its ABV nicely and is dangerously easy to drink. Not a mindblowing beer but definitely a very good value for what I paid for it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Sendiks in Brookfield. Pours a sendimenty brownish amber with an off-white head leaving a little lace. Aroma has pine and caramel, and more caramel. Down through the glass, more citrusy hoppiness showed through. Taste is of sweet toffee, some grapefruit and some pine with a lot of chewy resin. Plus buttery brown sugar. Medium bodied and quite sticky with somewhat low carbonation. Finishes significantly more sweet than bitter, but with some of each, and about medium length. Mostly not been a fan of Laughing Dog’s stuff, and this stays true to form.

On tap. Dark orange pour with thin layer of head. Big, hoppy nose. Wonderfully bitter with excellent balance and well-hidden abv. Pricey, but a very good IIPA.
