Bomber. Pours a bright ruby/copper color with a medium white head. A rich nose of sugars, sweet malts, floral hops, crisp oranges. The flavor is big rich hops, sugary sweet caramel, toffee, tropical fruit, almost no bitterness. In terms of flavor, pushing toward a IIIPA. Quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour. Strong, bitter citrus aroma and taste. A bit of a sweet, flat finish. This one wasn’t too memorable to me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bailey’s Taproom. Pungent hop nose with a bit of sewer. Hazy copper color. Thick sourish caramel / mid goes a little sweet with rotten dates and then flattens out / finish is malty. Medium body. Nice enough. The rotten date note kind of unsettles everything. Doesn’t really come together so well.

Mediocre beer for mediocre man (which I am not). Will not be drinking again. I have better things to do with my time. Like trying to lick my own gooch. So far, I have been unsuccessful. I think I need rehab.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Past notes. On tap. Colour...cloudy gold with a massively thick white head. Nose...teaming with sugared grapefruit, dried pineapple and hop resin. Palate...thick, chewy and delectable with massive hops and a great balance between the grapefruity and piney hops. Tropical fruits abound and sweetness is present without being cloying. The bittering continues through the finish which is long and memorable!

Bottle from De Laurenti, Pike Market, Seattle
Hazy golden color, with medium sized head. The aroma is a bit cornish, sweet, then maybe fruity. Good body, round but lean, smooth, not sticky, no crystal malt feeling; it also has a good toffee flavor, very strong bitterness, piney resins, light fruits, and some cereals.

Great nose, great IPA taste, and great finish! My second favorite at the 2012 Concordia Alehouse Imperial IPA blind tasting contest.
