3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden, medium white head. Earthy potatoe aroma with strong piney and apricot hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dry with a frim but never overwhelming bitterness. The best Left Hand brew for me this far.

Low aroma/ fartspray. Clear light copper. Heady. Lace. Neutral malty double ipa. Ive had this before and remember loving it, yet this is pretty average. Sweet. Kind of feeling pissed I paid $10 for a bomber. Oh well, this may be near its time. I know this is better. Rated as is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange-copper color with small white head. Floral, resinous, maybe honey, not so fruity aroma. Taste is a bit boozy, heavy body, slight bitterness. Feels almost like a wine. Low carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Pine resiny hop aroma with notes of floral hops. Pours copper colored with a large soapy white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good floral hop flavors as well as a bit of caramel malt. Finishes dry and very bitter with quite a bit of pine resiny hops. Good, but the sharp bitterness is a bit harsh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at New Bohemia. Smallish tulip glass. Nice copper color. Off white head. No real lacing. Aroma is a little metallic and slightly alcoholic. Taste has bready and caramel malts running throughout. Not much for floral or hop notes. I’m kind of missing those elements. Leaves a mild bitterness for its finish. Decent but there are plenty of better double IPAs on the market.

This is a hoppy beer, but wouldn’t quite call it a hop bomb. I’ve had hoppier imperial or double IPAs than this. But, I am more of a malthead, so the balance worked well for me. Also smoother than most IPAs/doubles. A good one to split with a friend.
