bomber. copper pour with a thin off white and frothy retention. aroma is butterscotch, sweet candied malts, plum. tastes are pine, overly spicy, earthy, alcohol, soap... I wonder if this has gone bad. got it at fermentation bottle shop, so decent chance - everything is dusty there. anyway - didnít like. 5.8

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of roasted and caramel, light orange and dough for the yeast, with a hint of date in the background. Head is large, creamy turning rocky, slightly off-white with excellent lacing and good legs and is mostly lasting. Color is crystal clear dark amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, a bit syrupy and has a soft carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. A little more malt dominant than most DIPAs and it lacks balance in the flavor. Twas a little disappointing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Rich Oís: poured peach orange with a medium off white head. Big pine aroma with light citrus. Flavor is all hops with just enough malt to balance it out. Well, almost balanced. Very piny, resiny hop flavor. Moderate grapefruit. I dug this one. Great job NABC.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Rich Oís/New Albinian. Excellent IIPA. Orangish pour with a nice tight white head. Resiny pine and grapefruit nose. Flavor is more of the same, but with a solid malt spine that does not balance as much as it offsets the hops. Dry finish. Wish this wass bottled!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 22oz bomber, pours a clear golden/amber with a decent white head, the aroma was kind of dull with a little bit of hops on the nose, the flavor really didnít blow me away either, very malty with a finish of slight fruit and hops, kind of a metallic finish as well, I wonder if this is an old bottle or something.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky yellow orange and served with no head. Mild grassy nose and pretty damn bitter. This comes of like just a jumbled mess to me.

nice growler brought up from Indian. golden amber hue, lotsa foam although poured rather vigorisly nice lacing. nose has lotsa pine and some citrus fruit, with some caremel malt sweetness as well. flavor is a hops tap dance not overdone very balanced and interesting like an english IPA but with more kick

Crushed with Honkeybra at the brewery. A definite hop bomb. Floral, kinda spicy, and citrus flowing through the aroma and flavor. Nothing incredible, but pretty damn tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Press a hazy yellow gold from the bottle with thin ring of off-white lacy head. Aroma is big caramel malt and booze, slight earthy hop. Taste is a little more balanced with some piney notes, but still a little sweet. Meh.
