3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle from Tís liquors): Pours a semi-cloudy orange body, small white head, quickly diminishing. Piney hoppy aroma. Some malts, dry. Dry taste, hops, acidic. Bitter. Warming up, not as bitter, but still dry & constricting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, via kmweaver. Pours a clear copper to orange body under a nice frothy off-white head that receded to a creamy film leaving heavy lace as it receded. The nose is not as bright as I hoped for, itís actually pretty well balanced, not what springs to mind for a true West Coast IIPA. Floral and lightly piney hops with a hefty sweet caramel malt base. The flavor again was alot more heavy on the sweet malt than expected. The focus of this really seems to be the malt. The hops are there for sure, piney and citrusy up front with a slight resiny stickiness on the finish. Only moderately bitter. Iím getting a bit much iced tea crystal-maltiness on the finish as well for my tastes. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a slightly syrupy texture and moderate fine fizzy carbonation. Overall, a decent enough beer in and of itself, but a letdown from what I had pictured in my mind coming from Oggis.

Lost of hops as you can imagine. Some citrus and other hop oils. A bit wierd and dirty. Moist and greasy with some sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber in color, large foamy off-white head, good retention, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Citrus, pine, and hop
oriented nose.   Smells quite nice.   Does smell a little rough, or green tho.   In other words, very zesty.   Aside from the
strong hop/citrus rind presense, I am getting spikes of earth and grains.   Lingering citrus rind.   A little puckering, to which I
would say this could use more malt backing.   A little lopsided as far as I am concerned.   Fairly full bodied, mouthfeel is
moderate.   I am pretty peculiar about my IIPAs, and this one does need a touch more sweetness, and a bit more malt.   Just not
syrupy enough for my tastes.   While it hits the mark on bitterness, its a bit raw and rough without a touch of sweetness and a good malt
backing.   Enjoyable, but too one sided.   Thanks Larry for the bottle!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a murky amber, thin white head. Nose is heavy malts and fruits. Orange and grapefruit up front in the flavor, hops...malts..caramel sweets. Finishes creamy, little carbonation and...hmmm. This is weird, I was thinking a hop bomb, got a malt bomb with a decent hop backbone. This is all backwards for an IIPA but I enjoy . Fresh bottle as far as I know.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from BevMo, Encinitas. Hazy medium amber color with medium off-white head. Aroma is a lot of fresh orange, very dominant, pine hops, caramel and other malt sweetness. Flavor is all that fresh orange, it seems that someone cut open a fresh orange and squeezed it into this beer, medium bitter pine presence, sweet malt. Medium to full creamy body. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear burned orange/apricot with minimal soapy off white head. Smells of piney hops, bready and a sweet malt. Tastes of bittering hops with a sweet balancing malt profile then a bready/tea like bitter lingering finish. Medium and refreshing in the mouth with good carbonation. Big beer but very drinkable. A west coast DIPA for sure.
