3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank during hurricane sandy from greenpoint Brooklyn today. Bottled 5 months ago. orange clear with a huge cream orange head, partially lasting with good lace. Aroma is floral, mango, pine, pungent funk, and honey. Flavor is very bitter almost from the start after a brief fruity and malty sweetness; goes herbal and spicy, then tries to be astringent. But the body is very soft and velvet with full active carbonation. Long lasting. I?m surprised it seems to have held up so well but maybe that should be expected from such a big IIPA. A real pleasure and very drinkable.

Je suis pas fan ... Il y a un côté très brutale dans la façon que cette bière a d’amener les arômes en bouche ... J’imagine que le " massively hopped " est en cause ...Pour nos amis brasseurs, faudrait pas oublier que souvent " le mieux est l’ennemi du bien " Pour autant, ça reste correcte mais je préfère des bières qui se déploient en bouche avec délicatesse plutôt que ce style frontale. Je veux bien de l’impact dans l’amertume, mais là, je trouve ça trop "malté/biscuité" ( trop de "balancing malt" ?? ) ... ( a revoir ? )

Aroma of citrus, orange, caramel, pine resin, floral notes, malt, big hops.. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. One to sip on slowly, it doesn’t drink easily at all. Be prepared to take some time... Another thick and heavy hop bomb from Port Brewing.

Smells great with fresh hoppy smell and sweetness. Looks to be little unfiltered. Taste very flavorful with strong hop flavor good sweet after taste.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet maltieness mixes with a slight bitter and a moderate hop aroma from this hazy dull orangish brew with FOD. A bitter and citrusy hop flavor are upfront followed by straight malt sweetness and ending in a warm burning from the 10%. It's a full bodied brew with a good carb. Not a bad brew big beer big taste.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, fruit. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange brown with some white head. Nose is dank and citrus. Taste is thick dank, citrus and caramel. Hops overwhelm the malts. Good but a lot of work to drink.

Hazy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Massive citrus and pine hop nose, quite nice. Big beer with a strong malt presence with a ton of hop character. Some citrus and pine warming in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber, 2015 vintage. Tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma with slight pine resiny hops and a bit of booze. Pours amber-orange colored with a large off-white head with moderate retention and lacing. Starts with tropical fruit and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with bitter pine resiny hops and a little bit of an alcohol burn. Pretty good, but the booze in the finish is not something you expect from an IPA and doesn't fit in the overall flavor profile.
