4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma has loads of fruity juicy hops, a generous caramel malt backbone, and resin. Flavour is super pungent with truckloads of piney and resinous hops, and just enough caramel malt backbone to hold things together. Extraordinarily hoppy, with a big puckering blast to the palate, with a medium astringency on the finish. Nice and dry, but also juicy. A most fantastic near-double IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours clear copper with a creamy/foamy near-beige head. Aroma is mixed floral/grapefruit over a shy caramel backbone. Med body. The hop is definitely mixed. It’s strong. The grapefruit rind tends to dominate, but I think there’s plain old citrus and some floral. Probably resin, given the impact on the mouth. Won’t need embalming after this. Purely preserving ale. Finishes flashily bitter. 108 IBUs! Brilliant.
