On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a golden yellow color with a big, fluffy white head. The aroma is potent with citrus and guava. The flavor is spicy, citrus an potent piney notes. The mouthfeel is thick, juicy and fruity. Really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a thin bone white head. Aroma is heavy piney hops, sweet malt. The taste is smooth, creamy, hoppy, resin, sweet malt. Body is fuller than I’d like and carbonation is medium to almost low for the style. I liked it, was worried when I saw the score, It is okay, not great, the hops they use impart almost no bitterness, it is more of just an intensely resinous taste, which i am not complaining, my main complaint is the malt is a little thicker than I would prefer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was opened with Shawn at his flat. Again, going to make this as short as I can: much too malty; very Vienna/Crystal-forward with not enough hops, and what hops there were tasted medicinal and plastic. Kind of an odd soot flavor by swallow, as well. Also displayed pine needles, moldy pineapple, and asparagus by each gulp. Pass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Aroma exudes loads of herbal hops and some tropical fruits (passionfruit). Flavour brings out passionfruit, muted spicy herbal hops, and some biscuity malt. Fairly odd flavour profile, seeming quite dank and dusty. Not the most well-executed IIPA, but not problematic in any way. Decent stuff.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Nugget in Davis, CA. Pours translucent light amber with a slight off-white head. Aromas of cat pee, floral, resin, caramel. Not harsh. Med + body. Flavor is cat pee, floral, resin, caramel, and the hop is just a tad harsh. We are talking typical NW here - would say overkill, but there just can’t be too much hop. Finishes bitter and very hoppy. Another brilliant ale from MSB.
