Poured at GABF and was volunteer pourer. Superb beer and after having enough beer to make my eyes swim, that says it all. Malty and hoppy smell...even steven. Flavor of decent malts and the hops popped through so nicely. Also hard to believe it is 8.3%. Could be a dangerous brew in 22OZ bombers.

Another great beer from this place. 22 oz bomber. Hop aroma good. The best of this beer was the balance between the alcohol, hops and the malt. TYhe malt made this brew. Not one sided like other typical IPAs, There is theother side of the coin and this one nailed it.

"Interesting. ABV of a IIPA, flavor profile of a standard pale ale, just bigger and chewier. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit, and a good amount of biscuit malt. ok, but not what i was hoping for."

At brewery aroma good but not much there, fairly clear. Taste is where this one kicks in initial malt biscuit flavor with a great hop finish. Citrus, fresh cut grass and dry.

22ozbomber from liquor store on 101, crystal clear dark golden with big white pillow head. Grapefruit hoppy aroma with some grain peeking through. This one has more of a grain nite than most XXIPA, which was evident and like able. Finished extremely dry.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Pine, spicy hop, tropical fruit, grainy caramel aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Spicy, citrusy hoppy flavors with tropical fruits, and a lightly sweet pale maltage____drying finish----good.

Started out as a discombobulated mess!!!! Malts all over the place...hops not mixing with brew...just way too tight and astringent. Was told by budy to pout it in a proper glass and let air out. BOY what a difference that made. The biscut croissant malt charcter in aroma brought the citrus hops in line. The astingency melted in the heat of the alcohol. After half of the glass this melded into a fine well balanced beer. Big malt backbone, then hops bitterness and alcohol dryness finished this off making you want more. But at 8.3....good thing no driving. 22 oz bomber.

Bottle pour. Clear copper color with a small white head, but good lacing. Hoppy aroma. Light to medium body. Hops, pine, light caramel, and a slight but sharp bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at OAW as locals call it. Was told this was a extreme pale ale. Yes it was pale in color and yes hops where somewhat extreme for a pale ale. Big spicy pepper aroma from hops. Slight alcohol warmth after malt presence. Great brew

Just picked up this $9 bomber at Tom’s Farm in Corona. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up plenty of cherry and plum fruity esters (ok, what style is this?) as well as sweet candy like citrus notes. The taste is very much the same, sadly, where sweet dark fruity esters and malt sweetened muted citrus hop flavor rule the experience and run it right into the $9 per bomber ground (wtf!). Around the edges of the flavor I get a modest degree of resiny hops that don’t come close to pulling this aged mess together. I’m not too happy about paying full price for such an old tasting bottle.
