4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Floral, pine and resin hop aromas. Very aromatic.
Appearance: Pale gold with a rich white head.
Taste: Light sweetness balance by a medium bitterness. Not too overpowering.
Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish.
Overall: A very solid, well developed beer. The hops are balanced nicely so they donít overpower the beer, but are still readily apparent. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a clear, golden straw with a frothy bright white cap and big bubble lacing. Aroma of resinous pine, citrus rind, caramel, and a bit of double bubble gum (which I guess is a chalky candied wetness).
Taste is sweet with a big punch of bitter. Gritty, sticky palate. Dry finish, but not really long.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy blonde. Aroma has some phenols - pool cleaner- with pear and other orchard fruit. Touch of the same orchard fruit character. Kind of a light character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This one was poured into snifter and a tulip several times. No differences were really noted.
The appearance was a nice hazy orange to copper color with a decent half finger-ed white foamy head that dissipates within less than a minute.
The smell had a decent amount of bitter piney hops burying some sweet caramel malts, but those malts eventually come out as it warms.
The taste was sweet and bitter at separate times with a sharp crisp light dried fruit aftertaste and then a super dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a fairly decent sessionable quality to it. The carbonation was a bit more subdued than most DIPAís Iíve had but nothing too underbearing.
Overall, this was a super dry DIPA with a pretty subdued carbonation to it that made it pretty sessionable. I wanted to say this could go good with its respected food, but one might want to have a glass of water along the side due to the dryness of this beer.

650 ml bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of pine. Flavors of pine and sweet malts. Not bad, but expecting a bit more. These IPAís are all starting to taste the same...
