3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Bottled 12/5/12. Consumed 12/9/12. Nice resiny hop nose. Tropical fruit hops, and an interesting biscuity malt profile. Clear red / orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Smooth, light carbonation. Creamy, dry texture, bigger body. Nice pine notes. Juicy hops. Grassy and dank. Some kiwi, pineapple, light grapefruit. Maybe even little mint. Good light bitter taste. Nice resiny bready aftertaste. At first I assumed this was basically an IPA based off the sound of it, but this is something different... Unusual hop flavor here.

@ Jake Melnick’s Chicago. deep amber colour, short lived head with no lace. On the nose and on the palate, this beer is a delicious hop explosion, tons of grapefruit and pine, with an aggressive bitter finish. So good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured clear medium orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up orange meat and zest plus peppery notes over sweet caramel and light biscuity notes.. solid. The flavor found orange meat and caramel at the core with peppery notes and spruce laced throughout.. finished grainy with more pepper and orange extract. Medium-plus bodied with an ok feel and flow through the palate.. spicy.. good overall but not great.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to motortoddhead! Thanks brotha! Deep copper, almost brown. Great piney/grapefruit nose with background onion/garlic, caramel malt, and faint berry. Flavor is a semi-sticky caramel malt interwoven with pine, grapefruit, and light onion/garlic. Nice dry bitter finish with grapefruit/citrus zest. Medium-ish+ mouthfeel. Somewhat creamy, from the hop abundance. Great stuff.

Pours a clear light reddish brown with a thin head on tap at the tap room. Aroma is sweet and sharply hoppy. Flavor is an immediate attack of alcoholic citra with a bit of a watery throat. Mellowed down the glass.

Clear copper pour with a nice cream colored head. Aroma is fantastic. Smells like a handful of hops. Piney, earthy, spicy, and citrusy with some malt in the background. Taste is resinous, piney, spicy, and citrus rind. Lingering bitterness. Very good beer.
