3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to savnac. Bottle opens with a gush of foam. Pour is a hazy rusty brown color with a large, thick white head. Aroma is notably spicy and bretty-like right off the bat. Also notes of clean malt, light citrus hop, and a light gym sock aroma. Flavor is initially bretty-like and minty with notes of grapefruit hop poking through. Also a clean biscuit malt component with black pepper and light pine hop in the finish. The finish is really crisp and clean. This is really easy to drink and very refreshing. Thanks Ira!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got to try this recently thanks to, "AKFaust". Colour... cloudy golden-amber with a thin head. Nose... sweet spice, orange pekoe, hops and tropical fruits. Palate... particularly sharp, bitter and dry-ish (I mean that in a good way!) with tropical fruit stems and skins, stone fruits, boiled sweets and bitter-sweet finish. Thank you sir, may I have another (WHACK!)!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Perrys Liquor in Livermore, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a 4 finger foamy off-white head. Aromas of citrus and malt and Belgian yeast/spice. Body is creamy full with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly funky/spicy with enough hop to go way bitter. It has everything - grapefruit/resin/spice/caramel. The malt seems very unroasted. On a blind test I’d say Belgian Strong Ale. Very interesting. Extremely good.

Thanks to travita for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is piney and resiny hops with some citrus notes as well as some Belgian yeast character. The flavor is orange and resiny hops with Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very hoppy and very good Belgian IPA. Another great beer from Midnight Sun.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (editors, note that the bottle claims 100IBU) thanks to travita. Pours with a hazed golden body and a large white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is floral, fresh and spicy hops, grapefruit, lemon, weed and goodness. Taste of belgian yeast, herbaceous and dank hops, lemon, grapefruit (citra?). There is an odd yeast or grain based off flavor when the bottle was first opened, but that went a way as it warmed. Medium carbonation.
