22oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange copper color with a one finger foamy cream head. Mild on the nose with caramel malts, a hint of mustiness, and earthy pine. Taste has sweet pale and caramel malt with some light grassy hops underneath, doughy yeast, with hints of citrus on the finish. Light carbonation with a light to medium body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from State Line. Pours hazy orangy with off-white head and medium pace level. Nose is dusty citrus esters, hops, resins. Tasted medium in palate heft, with an overall sweet caramel malt flavor, resiny hops, and a semi-cloying finish.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent golden orange colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was musty and mild hop. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of mildly vinous and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
From bomber. Ass-like nose emits immediately upon opening the bottle. Pour is okay; nice copper with decent head. No lacing. Smells like ass. Tastes like stale grape juice over wet cardboard and raw meat. Label claims this beer is heavily hopped. It is not. This is the worst excuse for a DIPA I have ever had the displeasure of tasting. Absolute shit.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells like ass. Tastes like ass. I think, like the coffee beans, this has been passed/shit out an ass before bottling. Will consume for ABV, for science.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Holy alias batman. Pouring at Congregation Bottle Share in one of this beerís many guises. Clear gold pour with no head. Nose is white grape, huge apple oxidation, salty pickle. Taste is nasty: pickle, white grape, stale apple juice. Straight garbage.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is hardly and IPA let alone a double IPA. Super light and sweet. There are some hops present but itís nothing but a regular amber ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a big off white head. Aroma of red apples, malt, sugar and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some red apples, caramel, alcohol and fruitiness. Medium body, average carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 22oz. As Boatswain Double IPA. A dense, off-white to light beige head forms over a lightly hazy orange colored body. Some lacings. The aroma has hints of butterscotch and dms, even some cooked vegetables. Caramel, pine cones and citrus peel. Sweet flavor with some toffee and citrus peel. Orange hints and some bitterness. Full body, pleasant and soft carbonation. Toffee tending towards butterscotch, and some bitterness in the finish. In a double IPA, the caramel maltyness shouldnít win over the hops. In this beer it does, hence a low score. Think I was pretty nice with the score. 130821
