UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Bomber. Mostly clear orange, modest foamy off-white head fades. Aroma of citrus tropical hops. Herbal citrus hop blast, caramel malts, some grapefruit, tropical ’Stralia hops become more evident as it warms. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Some booze towards the end. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Sweet grapefruit that finishes with tropical fruits and sweet malts. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Candied orange, pineapple, grapefruit pith and resin. The resin overwhelms although is balanced with the sweetness. Mouthfeel is rich and appropriate and alcohol is well masked. Overall, decent but I had higher hopes.

Bomber. Pours amber, lasting white head. Nose is quite dank (my friend said skunky but that’s not the right word is it?), a lot of stonefruit, some grass. Flavour is not overly bitter and hops come out in the finish. Citrus, stonefruit, some grass. Nice caramel backbone. Fuck the early addition high alpha acid paint thinners, this is how I like my IIPAs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014-08-30. Hazy dark orange body with a nice frothy off white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with a good amount orange citrus, light resin. Flavour is similar with a good amount of sweet orange and mild orange peel. Very light resiny undertones. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Not super complex, it feels just a touch too sweet and lightly dull around the edges but has a pretty nice citrusy hop character throughout. Enjoyable Bottle shared by Wilco

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep gold with a thick white head. Aroma is fresh squeezed orange juice with grassy, earthy hops. Flavour has citrus fruit with bold, bitter piney hops. There’s obvious balance, with a light cereal sweetness, but the hops are on the fore front leaving a long, bitter finish. A bit of a rum like alcohol finish as well. Well done, but the bitterness is a bit sharp.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. A massive hop-splosion that batters the palate. Tons of pine and resiny bitterness with chewy citrus over a blended malt background. The flavours didn’t pull together for me; I found it a bit muddy. Too much going on and none of it subtle.

650 ml bottle. Pours an orange amber with light head. Aromas of oranges, resin, pine and toffee. Nice, smooth, and fruity. Flavors of toffee and pine, with light citrus and resinous notes. Bitter finish but not overly so. Well done.
