3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, long lived, off white head, with some lacing, over a hazy, dark gold (SRM 6) body.......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel, light toffee/caramel......taste is light toffee/caramel, pine, grapefruit peel, light floral honey, finishing with a lingering, but not overwhelming bitterness, tinged with licorice.......mouth feel medium, light alcohol warmth, carbonation adds tingles on the tongue. This is a typical "American" I/DIPA. It is is hop dominated in both aroma and flavor, but is sufficiently complex to be well balanced. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Über. Pours bright golden with medium lacey head. Aroma is big tart and fruity hops. Taste is huge hops: juicy, floral, and piney with a bitterness that lasts through the finish. Light biscuity body that offers no resistance to the hop parade here. Deceptive, the 9% sneaks up on you as this is so easy drinking. The hops are mastered here, the best-in-class DIPAs have a bit more going with their malts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber for Binny’s Arlington Heights. Pours lightly hazed golden orange and white head. Aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruits with a bit of biscuity malts. Flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, nice malt base, and good amount of bitter hops. Nicely balanced and drinkable IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Milltown. Pours a soft straw yellow with one two fingers of sticky white head. Sickly hoppy nose, tons of resin and citrus rind with raw hop leaf and cone seeping through. Very dank and heady. Flavor is super intense, takes on that mothbally character some overhopped beers have for me. Tastes almost like a chemical on the finish. No me gusta.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a pale orange gold, very slight haze. medium head, white with decent retention, nice lacing.Nose is hoppy, pine in the front, little bit of citrus and tropical fruit. Full mouthfeel, almost oily, but fades rather quickly and not as much hops bitterness as I expected. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great color, head and lacing. Huge aroma - should get a 10 but... the skunky, oniony aromas from Amarillo and Simcoe hops overwhelm the more desirable citrus, pine and floral notes from the Columbus and Centennial. This also comes through in the flavor. I would like to love this beer. It would get about a 4.7 without the nasty hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Eureka Burger. Rating #72. Hazy orangish color with a white head. Sweet malty and light tropical aroma. Toasty flavor, very malt forward, which threw me for a loop. Wasn’t a real big fan to tell you the truth. (2475)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber with a fairly small head. A lot of hops to the aroma without overpowering the nose. Good level of hops, though balanced well to cut the bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shiny golden color. White head gets thinnish soon. Strong floral hop nose. Taste is biscuity and hoppy. Citrus with a biscuit and gravy backend. Weird. Really funky amd foody. Its got plenty of character and should be enjoyed by more women and children all around.
