4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale hazy gold with a medium white head and good retention. Aroma is Super hop stank (in a good way) with loads of citrus and a little vanilla?! This smelled of hops when I opened the bottle from two feet away. Flavor is holy bitterness batman. Citrus hops abound. This is good palate wrecking shit. Have already bought more.

On Draft at Publick House in Temecula. This beer pours amber with notes of pine that drive deeper once it is on the palate. You get a dose of citurs hops near the end allowing for a bitter finish.

Fresh, resinous, piney hop aroma hits you upfront. Billowing white head on top of a surprisingly fairly clear golden orange body. The tongue is assaulted with a bitter piney hop taste followed by a wave of hot alcohol. Riding on the tail of this is a bit of sweet malt flavor, but it gets wiped out by the hops which now display a grapefruit character. The spray left behind is tongue numbing bitterness and the desire to get back up and ride the next wave. Great West Coast DIPA!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours orange with a large frothy head and lively carbonation. Aroma and flavor is similar. Citrus bomb, mainly grapefruit with hints of pine. Nice dry bitter finish. However, I am not sure I would say this is a iipa. Not as bold as I like in my double’s, but still an excellent ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Binny’s Schaumburg. Pours hazy orange with golden edges with large white head. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, mangos, peaches, some caramel, and fair amounts of hops. Flavors of sweet malts, orange, grapefruit, caramel, and a shit load of bitter hops. I always complain about lack of bitterness in IIPA and IPA’s, but fuck man is this bitter. Some alcohol warmth in there as well. Still solid and enjoyable once palate adjusts.
