3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma of hops and grapefruit, great looking beer amber color with a nice creamy head. Complex taste of oranges, slightly sweet with a hint of bitterness. A mild short lived palate, slightly bitter.

This is beer of true man. I will fight anyone who dare challenger me. I am drunk and dangerous. And I have boxing gloves. My knuckles don’t need them but your face does.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. This brewery has always been slightly inconsistent, given how young their beers are when they ship (or at least I presume that’s the primary reason). This one was a bit of a disaster. A flat, demoralizing pour, golden treacle. Nose was articial sweetener and grain. Slick mouthfeel, overwhelmingly sweet with little to balance it out at all. Bleh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy amber color with a moderate head. Nose isn’t too strong, but is very hoppy and bitter in it. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, yet remarkably light and easy to drink. Quite a good beer...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, caramel, and light grapefruit. Taste of pineapple, faint pine, and grapefruit. A pretty good DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, shared with friends. $6 from Beer Run. Nice dense half-inch khaki head. Leaves good lace. Mostly clear amber - red color. Smooth carbonation, dry texture. Caramel malts. Hint of pepper. Spicy orange citrus hop flavor. Light bitter. Kind of sweeter taste. Only light alcohol, well-hidden. Actually kind of refreshing, with the subdued dryness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Malty, spicy nose or caramel, cinnamon, grass, English hop, cherry and ripe apples. Deep orange-amber color. Fruity flavor, lots of cherry. Light body. More like an English strong ale or un-aged old ale than an IPA, but nice.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden color with slight amber hue. Aroma is mostly caramel. Not very hop forward for a IIPA. Taste is also ptedominantly sweet caramel. Hops are hidden until the end as it does have a slightly bitter finish. Medium to heavy bodied. Not very good for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle@Home. Nice sweet DIPA. Not not too harsh or grassy as many USA DIPA’s seem to be. Balanced, flavourful, highly drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy copper, with a quickly dissipating, foam head. Aroma of grapefruit & citrus, very hoppy and sweet. Medium to full body, with caramel, malt, hops, and a little buttery flavor. Finishes bitter, but doesn’t upset the smoothness of this IPA
