3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy light gold color with a thick sticky head. Nice grassy aroma with notes of fresh cut grass and orange citrus. Straightforward DIPA flavor of lemon, orange and grapefruit citrus with the malt base subdued so as to keep the profile light and crisp. I prefer this approach to a good DIPA. bitterness is medium strength and fairly well balanced. Good carbonation with a refreshing palate. Very tasty. I look forward to trying more of M.E.ís brews

Shared bomber poured to snifters with yeasty cloudiness to the orangy color, decent soft white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose started with malt & sweetness, then grapefruit, pine, and some orange scent. The flavor presented nice, moderate hop bitterness with some lingering quality, medium body and hidden alcohol. A well rounded, solid single IPA, but not hefty enough to claim DIPA status, imo.

Golden color out of the bottle with a lasting foamy off white head. Nose of hop pellets and grapefruit. Thick mouthfeel, Syrupy with lots of orange marmalade, grapefruit rind and yeasty bread. Long grapefruit zest bitterness in the finish. Nice IIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bev4Less. Let me just say, I met one of these guys at Bev4Less a few weeks ago... awesomely personable and knowledgeable. Good guy who makes good beer. Pours hazy golden. Decent amount of lacy white foam head. Bready malts, herbal and resiny hops, a little bit of cheesy and earthy yeast tones, and some banana funkiness that compliments rather than detracts. Medium sweet (a great sign for this style) medium bitter... yes, this is not heavy bitter, and well-balanced throughout the palate until... oops, the bitter end... but that came after a nearly 90 second delay. Impressive. Full body, creamy, somewhat sticky texture, lively carbonation and a nice, looong bitter finish. Really, really good beer. Nailing it guys. Now, keep it up.
