3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, soap, some herbal notes, Belgian yeast, and hay. Flavour is very Belgian-esque, with lots of yeast, very dry floral hops, some feint horse blanket and hay-like malts. Very dry and Belgiany, executed very well. Leaves a very dry and very bitter aftertaste. Great, highly quaffable IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Blue Dog, and I made sure to light check this one as I had already rated the black version. The pour was chill hazy morning urine yellow with 2-finger frothy white head that clang and laced well. Nose is great; huge hops, black pepper, florals, pineapple, orange marmalade, honey, tangerine. Tastes semi-dry, very floral, peppery, with a lot of pineapple, black pepper, mango, and a complex finish and overall palate. This one is great, but be cautioned that the finish is super bitter and IBU-laden, which is a good thing to me.
