3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours translucent amber with a slight white head. Strong citrus, nee cat pee, aroma. Med body. Flavor is very, very citrus, with something else that’s very fresh hop, and the caramel backbone is very, very back. This is arguably a hop monster. Finishing quite hoppy and bitter. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange pour with a white head. Citrus and pine hops on the nose, but a slightly underattenuated malt profile. Light grass, some floral notes, and a nice bread note. The flavor is a little bread forward for an IPA, but decent citrus, some pine, floral hops, and a touch of grass. Not quite what I’d expect from a west coast IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a crystal clear looking gold body supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up a big inviting mix of aromatics that include mango tropical fruit and malt sweetened grapefruit like citrus. Nice. The taste is pleasing with a firm level of grapefruit hop bitterness and what seems like a dash of malt sweetened mango tropical fruitiness here and there as well. There is a hop resin bitterness that helps dry this out a tad into the finish. This is a delicious robust IPA.
