3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burnt orange,light amber/copper.Good froth/lacing carbonation.
Smells nice. Has toasty breadymalt,(buttery)caramel ,hops with fruit notes,kinda spicey also. Some resin/dank.Maybe more hoppy but somewhat a balanced malt/ butterycarmel aroma,works well together
Taste is smooth,slick,malty,hoppy, lots of pine in the finish,same characters as aroma.Strong grassy/piney( maybe rhindy too?) bitter.Malt falls off quikly and the bitter takes over. Great double ipa if you like em a little more bitter than average.Nice malt body very smooth.The finish/bitter maybe a bit overpowering,I think it would taste a little better maybe with less grassy pine bitter but probably sticks to the classic west coast ipa standard . Probably a palate wreaker. I like it. Pretty hell of a beer really. I like it more for what it is than what I like really.

Bomber. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a cap of off-white foam. Aroma blends citrus, tropical fruit and pine resin with a bit of malt sweetness. The taste starts with a strong dose of grapefruit, orange rind and resiny hops bitterness followed by notes of pineapple, pine and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and mildly creamy with an aggressively bitter, citrus peel finish. Overall, an above average DIPA with more than enough hops in the flavor profile.

I like hops. Absolutely love hops. This one Iíd prefer to eat with steak. Not really something I can drink by itself often.

Translucent amber orange colour with some white frothy head. Strong aroma of pine and hops. Taste is quite bitter, especially the aftertaste of bitter medicine and grapefruit, but a nice resinous element as well. Nice double IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden orange with a small white head. Nose is piney, citrus, peaches and pineapple with caramel. The taste is heavy sweet and low bitter. Perhaps it's old. The finish gives more bitter but not as much as fresh. The texture is sticky and sharp. The body is heavy and finish is long.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz pours dark copper with little head. Smells wonderful of strawberries and toffee. Great big mouthful of sweetness courtesy of the malts balanced somewhat by a lingering resinous hop flavor. A great drink thatís a little more on the malty side.
