3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Pine resin and floral notes on the nose. The assertive hop bitterness slaps you in the face up front, backed up by biscuity malts. Solid body. Lingers on the palate and is followed up by aftertastes of spice and citrus. Finishes very dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
May 13, 2011 - with blankboy, jerc & mabel. blankboy’s bomber. Slightly hazy amber with a decent frothy/fluffy off-white head. Smells good - citrus juiciness and citrus zest, a little resin sharpness - maybe a little > IPA bitterness, and a little fruity sweet (peach). Taste - simple, same as the aroma but quite floral too - dryly bitter, not in your face, fully attenuated. Average body, decent carbonation quite quite bitter and no residual sweetness all the way through the long finish. I always seem to really like these ones.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 650ml bottle on 6/8/2012. Pours a fairly clear dark golden with a smallish head. Has a lovely hoppy aroma, with citrus fruit, pine and caramel all prominent. In the mouth, this is a real hop monster. The bitterness is extreme, with a huge, dry, lingering resiny, grapefruity finish. The malt is way in the background, with a touch of caramel evident, along with some subdued orange marmalade sweetness. A really full on IPA, which is just a shade too unbalanced to really hit the bullseye (could use a touch more sweetness imo).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a loose and creamy film of tan mousse. Plenty of webby lace. Nice ripe grapefruit rind nose. Creamy medium body with a big forward burst of caramel and grapefruit. Long grapefruit finish. Had this IPA a million times from a million brewers, but, when it’s clean like this one, I won’t be getting tired of it any time soon.
