3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh, this is a pretty standard dipa for me - clear golden pour - thick, lasting head - fresh, peppery, herbal, minty hop aroma start things off on a positive note - the flavor doesn’t live up to this - it might not be as sweet as some dipas, but it is still fairly sweet for my taste, especially in the finish - bitter but not abrasive - decent earth hop flavor - not too bad, but not stand out - a bit of a let down, since I thought their regular ipa was fantastic.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out a darkish golden, near copper hue with a small rocky head. The aroma can be picked out inches away--candied grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, with a touch of cantaloupe tropicalness. Big full flavor with much hoppy bitterness, pine notes, a little leafy resin, grassy earthiness, with not as much of a tropical sweetness or malty caramel backbone as the aroma would have me believe. Made for pine-hungry hop heads, not for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a hazy amber with an average to larger frothy super off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus rind, grainy, slight earth coming out, maybe a touch of dry molasses. Flavor of dry citrus rind, toast, and dry old hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly creamy finish. This good but it seems to be a bit old.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Arrives from the tap with a pale tan colored head. The beer is a light amber hue that is jsut a touch darker than the Iron Horse (I think). The aroma has a solid citrus character, as well as a dank herbal character and pine notes as well. The beer has a peppery, almost woody character to it as it warms up.
Ample citrus hop flavors as well as a dirty, almost skunky hop note that adds some bite to the hop character. The beer is medium’ish bodied, though not overly heavy and it has a light enough carbonation that provides just enoug of a prickly texture. The finish lingers into a fair amoutn of bitterness as well as a peppery, herbal character that has a bit of rosemary and menthol character, definitely resinous.
A nice Double IPA, not quite as good as the Iron Horse, but once my palate adjusts back from that, this beer comes into its own with its juicy hop character. This is definitely a bit more resinous and dank, which is a nice enough contrast when you are looking for that sort of thing.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peanut hulls, unmalted and unhusked barley, and orange peel aroma. Cloudy amber, medium sticky yellow head. Overripe apricot, maraschino cherries, grain, bread crust, crackers. Very busy and certainly not boring.Some DMS. Spellbinding complexities, neat transitions, good balance, one of a kind, but slightly flawed. Entertaining.

Bomber dated 10-06-10. Hazy, burnt orange with a lasting cap of cream. Nose of orange blossom honey, fresh grain, and juicy citrus. Light-medium body is a bit too watery, but smoothly carbonated and well-dried by the hops. Flavor is resin, grapefruit, Honey-nut Cheerios, and some oak in the long finish.
