Bomber from Winooski Beverage. Hazy amber, large dense fizzy tan head, food retention. Aroma of grain, caramel, piney and spicy hops. The taste is caramel malt, menthol, tropical fruits, citrus, pine. Medium bodied, low carbonation, a bit flaccid, moderate lingering bitterness.

dresden (1479) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 15, 2015
Honey golden and clear. Big piney aroma. Caramel malt is thick and bitter with a pine and grapefruit. A few years ago I would have gone crazy for this but these big beers have changed so much and this feels like it’s missing something, despite being a great and we’ll executed beer

Bill Becker (820) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a hazy orange gold with one solid head of long lasting foam. The smell and taste is of a solid malty backbone and tropical fruity hops. Balance is nicely done with a very smooth mouthfeel. Delicious.

Shark_Pants (613) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2015
This is a very ’juicy’ IPA - lots of resin, pine, fresh citrus, honey malt in both aroma and taste. Not too heavy either. Highly enjoyable.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 14, 2015
Poors a clear deep straw yellow. Aroma is cascade and flavour follows on. Wish I could have this brew fresh from the tap because even though it has that awesome cascade aroma and flavour it’s faded with time and travel. Good beer none the less. Some really nice lingering bitterness.

Davros (2831) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours amber with a large head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, sweet clean malt, some soft pineapple. Aggressively hoppy flavours, lots of piny, resinous notes and a fair bit of clean malt underneath.

BOTTLE. Hazy copper pour with good foamy white head. Subtle floral hops & malt on the nose. Sweet biscuit malts, turning to a hoppy middle with bitter finish & sappy mouth feel. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel
