4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
$9.50 for the 650mL bottle purchased from Leary’s earlier today. To tulip, it pours a sediment-heavy dark tangerine with a sudsy, foamy and lacy snowy white head 1½ fingers in length. Beautiful. Aromas of sunflower seeds, pinesap, bittering hops, candied limes, ginger root, cotton, agave syrup, turbinado sugar, American yeast, wolfberries, aluminum, and specialty-grain bread. Tastes of everything described above, with the addition of Carared, bitter orange peel, and sea salt by mid-palate to swallow. Zesty and really nice. Haven’t had this beer in nearly three years: I don’t know why I stopped drinking this.

Bomber shared long time back poured dark orange color and it was very hopped up on the aroma and the flavor so well balanced, extremely hoppy and flavorful. Wish we could get it here.

On tap at hallingshead deli. Pours a orange gold slightly hazy with a medium frothy head. Aroma is tangerines and citrucy tropical fruits with a underlying sweet caramel malt note. Taste follows the aroma with some spicy hops notes and a cinnamon note aswel midway and the backend. Very Good!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (22 oz). Thanks to Ernesto for this one! Hazy orange with a huge off-white head, good retention and really intense lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt, lots of fruits and light alcohol notes. Taste is moderately sweet with fruits, malt, light perfume and light to moderate bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Beautiful and easy drinking DIPA. A tad too malty, but also quite complex for the style and enjoyable.

smells like Hop resin. nice. looks cloudy and rich, no head to speak of.Taste is buckets of lovely Hops. Fresh bottle from quality liquors thank you Vinny. Wow. This is wonderful. slick resinous mouth-feel. The hops fading into a nice malt rush then the hops comeback for a reprise. One of the best IIPA’s around. The hops they use just kick-ass. Dynamite Ale!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted multiple times at GABF. This became my all time favorite at the festival. Almost all I tasted for 3 hours were IPAs and IIPAs and I went back to this one as the standard (at least to my palate). It sums up nearly everything I find likable in this style. I would swim, bathe, shower, and sleep in this if possible. How’s that for hyperbole?

Cloudy golden pour. Lemony Citrus aroma. Lots of hope flavor, grapefruit, spice, along with a good malt backbone with a hint of sweetness. Very nice.
