3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Whole Foods Market, Paramus. These guys’ labeling practices remind me of Legend in Virginia. That is not a complement. hazy amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big toffee malts with floral, citrus, resin and candied citrus hop notes. The taste is big toffee, berries, citrus, resin, peaches. Medium-bodied, lingering bitterness, fairly well balanced, a bit of heat. This is a big bold DIPA, Nice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at devils advocate. Not much in the aroma other than some sweetness. Hazy to murky amber. Sudsy, creamy off white head. Very sweet with more subdued hops. Clear why it’s not rated very highly in the style. Bartender/(owner?) really likes this brewer and also has the green mountain on tap.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much of a scent, light hops and caramel. Taste is a lot of sweetness, bold flavors of caramel and a slight bitter finish, quality brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark orange pour, tons of floaties, a little carbonation and a caramel and dead hop aroma. Flavor is slightly hot sweet hops, dry oranges, nice and malty with a slightly apricoty aftertaste. Average, but probably worth buy once @ $5/bottle.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty easy drinking for an IIPA. Aroma doesn’t jump out of the class for me, bitterness is somehow medicinal, great malt flavors as advertised, some of that barnyard I appreciate.. I like it, but doesn’t compare to the many Of the incredible beers in this class.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle was hazy red with off white/yellow head, aroma brought notes of deep caramel and toffee, some nice grapefruit, lemon, hints of biscuit and slight yeast characters, touch of spice. Taste is nice grapefruit and orange, some slight mineral notes, hints of dry spice and earthy notes, some slight grass but mainly citrusy and fruity, finishing fairly bitter, slight alcohol burn. Decent!
