3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ancient backlog, from tap. Aroma of resin, flowers, pollen, citrus. Flavor again very resinous with big sweet malts as well as lemon and marmalade. Not too sweet for a DIPA when all is said and done. Gets a bit grassy as it goes. Still quite solid.

Bomber thanks to my cousin Linda. Deep gold, slightly hazy with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet, resiny, fruity nose. Taste of the same with alcohol very evident. Very carbonated with some nose bubbles. Medium palate. Very drinkable and well done.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Cloudy yellow / gold brew with a white foamy head that clings. Grassy hop aroma, medium body with thickness that coats the mouth. A lasting finishn that is more soft than sharply bitter. A very good stronger IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny piney hops.
The flavor is sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits with a big resiny piney floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery with low carbonation.
Overall, a solid DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange and hazy. Moderate head. Nose is rich with resinous, tropical fruit, ripe grapefruit, pineapple, and other fruit intensity. Even some soapy hop aromas mixed in. Flavor is some sweet bready and caramel malts with a semi sweet but bitter finish. Medium body. Rich texture with moderate carbonation on the back end. Like this one. Thanks trukpro!

On tap at Cafe Pasqual’s in Santa Fe. Quite nice with lots of fresh hops. Went really well with the southwestern lunch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a yellowish orange with a spongey white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has caramel and pine. And caramel. And pine. And caramel. Very sweet smelling - to the point of feeling my teeth rot. Taste is of sweet caramel, spicy pine and bittersweet orange with a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes somewhat dry and to the sweet side of bittersweet. Some alcohol. A thick caramelly resinous brew. No clue on the bottle date.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour is a clear, orangey golden color with a full, white, creamy, fluffy head which settles to a fluffy, rocky layer and leaves scattered, sporadic lace. The nose is a bit bland with pink grapefruit, black pepper, light florals, some pine, light caramelly notes, and some cracker. The flavor is similar with equal parts cracker, pepper, caramel, and resin, still some pink grapefruit, and light rustic notes. The palate is nearly full, nearly lively, oily, and velvety. The beer finishes with a moderately high bitterness, black pepper, resins, slight caramel, and some rustic lingering. Actually a decent IPA/IIPA beer; the fruity citrus and slight caramel added sweetness to the quite bitter, spicy, and resinous beer. The dryness was matched by spice and citrus to avoid any over dry beer. Not very familiar with this brewery but I like them so far.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Poured cloudy (suprisingly)...cleared some with some time. Good carbonation and a medium head. Pleasant sweet floral and honey nose. Nice medium body and deep gold orange color. Good bitterness upfront-not a hop bomb-and a clean malty backbone with a sweet finish. Great balance. Would definitely get again (next time I’m back in NM...).

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery. This was effing solid, just like their single IPA. Nose of orange peel, malt, resin and dank hops. Flavor very much the same - a perfect bitter twang where the hops overbalance the malts just so. Fragrant and refreshing.
