4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber - pours an amber orangish yellow with a medium head that laces the glass nicely. The aromas are big and bold - citrus rind, bitter grapefruit, pine resin, malty caramel and a subtle floral essence. One taste and you know it's huge. In your face bitterness from flavors of intense grapefruit, kumquat, citrus zest, pine needle, bitter herb and a hint of molasses like malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Apex, post CBC
A: Orange semi-opaque body, firm white head, lacing.
N: Pine, biscuit, earth, light citrus - though I can’t say I pull too many such flavors out of this one. It doesn’t strike me as a dry-hopped ale.
T: Quite sweet; decent bitterness.
M: Alcohol burn, medium body that’s quite resinous, soft carbonation.
O: A DIPA with some high points but one that I believe has been passed in this day and age. I don’t find it particularly special for any reason.

Citrus pine hops! Overpowering citrus and pine hops! Mild malts. This beer is dominated by the hops in aroma flavor and finish. BTW the hops are fantastic.

On tap. Not a fan of too many ipas but this was good. Pineapple sweet fruit aroma. Nice lacing. Dry finish with a bitter pine after taste. Refreshing drink with a fruity and piney flavor without being overwhelming.
