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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

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.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Golden colour, large white head. Strong aroma of resinous American hops, also hints of orange marmalade. The flavour is distinctly hoppy throughout, with a piney and grapefruity bitterness, but is still not too extreme.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an unclear and orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is malt and hops with peach and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by the generous folks at 16 Tons. Slightly hazy orange pour with a big off-white head and plentiful lacing. Absolutely enormous citrus aroma, with oranges, grapefruit and tropical fruits all playing a part. Flavir doesnt quite match the smell, but is big on citrus with just enough caramel malt thrown in for balance. Great beer.
