3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Appearance is a hazy rusted orange and gold color with a half-inch of off-white foam. Strong floral hops and tropical fruit in the aroma with a bit of caramel. The flavor starts out with aggressive vegetal hops bitterness leading to some pineapple, grapefruit, mint and caramel malt notes. Also a noticeable alcohol burn toward the end. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with moderate carbonation and more leafy bitterness and citrus in the finish. Tasty but a tad boozy and bitter at times.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. The deScription says 10% ABV but the bottle says 8.7% ABV. Pours a hazy peach with a moderate head and good lacing. Nose is fruit, pine and earth with a hint of grass and yeast. Taste starts out sweet, evolves into malt and finally graduates to a complex bitterness. The whole mixture of nose, taste and finish is exceptional and hides the alcohol very well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651 ml. bottle. ABV 8.7%. Vintage 2015. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a hazy, particle laden, amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is heavy hops with pine resin, citrus peel, herbal notes, light grass, hints of allium, moderate cereal malts, no esters, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet, with light cereal malts, mild pine, resin, citrus peel, floral notes, light licorice, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, sticky, pleasant alcohol warmth, slight astringency, medium carbonation. This is obviously a different recipe than the original with the lower ABV. It is a pleasant beer with a somewhat muted malt backbone. It is appropriately dominated by the complex hop bill.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. At Både &. Vintage 2015. A hazy golden beer with a small off-white head. Piney, resiny aroma indicating a dry, bitter mouthful. Not much malts in the aroma, nor in the flavor. Rather bitter, lightly warming and dry on the palate, full bodied and nicely carbonated, with flavors of piney and resiny hops. Some pale malt notes in the far back of the swallow. A delicious beer indeed. 150821

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This pours a bright honey orange and has a nice fluffy orange tinted head. Big fruit and rich malts in the aroma. Flavor, too. This is big and burly. Bottle says ABV is 8.7%. Tangerine leads the flavor with oranges, pine, and citrus. Gobs of hop flavors. Some grapefruit made a brief appearance and perhaps some zest. Complex is a well earned description. Sometimes this was a big classic west coast IPA and sometimes it took off in a different direction. All of those things were good for me. I liked this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Mine started at about 68 degrees. his much cooler. Pours a clear orange color with a good sized creamy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit rind and some floral aromas. Full body and very resinous. Flavor is complex with grapefruit, pine, floral tastes. and tropical fruit. Hard to identify all the fruit flavors. I get tangerine. The finish is long and bitter with a lot of the grapefruit rind that was in the aroma. Overall a very nice easy drinking Imperial IPA.

Pours slightly cloudy golden. Aroma is balanced. Nice hops. Taste is also balanced, lots of hop bitterness, but also malt to back it up.
