4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Pours to a glowing golden amber body with lots of small bubble carbonation and a super dense, fully lasting, airy, creamy white head and awesome lacing. All beer should look this good. The aroma is juicy and malty. Lots of hops, some hay, some grass, a little resin, a dash of earthy cheese perhaps? Very nice when blended all together. Odd sounding when broken apart. The flavor is quite hoppy and malty. Biscuits and dough meets delicious hay and grass hops. Some light herbal components. Dough and bitter hops. I quite like these hops. Very complex all blended together. The palate is bitter, but balanced. Medium -full bodied and creamy. This is a wonderful beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... Pours clear and amber with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features a medley of tropical fruits and a note of orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and bright, with a moderate measure of hoppy bitterness and a lesser ration of honey and biscuit sweetness. The mouth-watering finish is fruity and a touch sweet. Bottle courtesy of ctipping and/or landhoney!

12oz tulip glass on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with some grapefruit and light grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a high quality DIPA that is well balanced and tasty and definitely worth tasting.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Super indeed...fantastic aroma leads to a drink of earthy resinous pine forest. Also, a sticky candy like sweetness perfectly balances the hoppy bitterness. Finishes clean and leaves a lacing covering the glass top to bottom. Awesome.

Backlog. On tap at Hops & Pie. Gold and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Resinous and piney hops in the aroma. Medium to heavy bitterness in the flavor. Pretty tasty, but I remember enjoying it more when it first came out.
