Met a guy from the brewery at norms so gave it a try. From bomber pours slightly cloudy golden with full receding head. Smell is hoppy and portends what is to come. Drinks nice but finishes way too hoppy, seems dry hopped and needs more balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured in a darker shade of gold, clear, nice off white head and minimal spotty lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus fruit, and some floral notes. Taste is certainly bitter, hoppy, lots of citrus fruit; there is also some balance from malts, but overall bitter and hoppy (and that’s not a bad thing). Nice, enjoyable and quite drinkable.

22 bomber to tulip. Pours clouded orange, white froth sticky head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and light caramel. Taste of the same with some fig, raisin and a dry bitter finish with bitters changing over to trop and big cacao. Weird. But so interesting and complex.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Ample pour with a big top over the light orange-gold beer. This has a subtle spicy tilt, and finishes with a mushy malt-hop marriage. Tad thin on the palate, but a decent drinker. (#6015, 8/4/2015)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep gold body that has a copper hue and a slightly hazy body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up resiny smelling pine hops and then just slivers of sweet malts and a floral kind of soap sensation. The taste harkens back to an earlier time with it’s biting resiny pine hop bitterness and adequate sweet malty base. Well off in the background is a blend of earthy tea and vague sort of soft hop fruitiness. Fun beer for sure where the resiny hops are big but there’s plenty of depth and body going on here allowing for a semblance of balance.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy copper with a thin, very sticky white head. Lovely aroma of sticky sweet grapefruit and orange rind, a bit of floral resin and a caramelly wafer undertone. Big robust flavor with sweet citrus zest and bitter peel, a touch of pith, sweet caramelly undertones, nice quaffable bitterness,and a strong earthy leafy/herbal resin towards the dryish finish. Aftertastes of resin and bitter grapefruit peel.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Okay. Standard IPA flavors but with strong perfumy, floral notes. The floral notes detracted from the flavors and really lowered the overall taste/aroma.
