3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark amber to copper cored pour with a 2 finger, soapy beige head. Aroma starts with super fruity hops with a nice bite, a full gamut of citrus, lots of floral and a little tart tropical fruit, then some tart berry, mild toast, sweet biscuit and some floral/fruity notes that I can’t exactly pin down. Flavor is tree and berry fruit, caramel and biscuit up front, then citrus, floral, passion fruit-tropical, earthy and herbal hops, lots of fruity, berry perfume and light, but noticeable spicy, phenolic notes. Medium body, oily, syrupy and a hint of creaminess throughout along with a medium carbonation. Really tasty stuff, there are a couple off notes, but overall it was very enjoyable.

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Good amount of citrus in the aroma. Definitely got hints of pineapple and tangerine. Some floral bitterness at the back. Bitter at the start, then tropical and fruity, then moves to dry and bitter with a very balanced finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Ingles. A nice accompaniment to some wedding baking. Decent IPA but not as impressed as I should be considering price and Rogue. Pours a deep orange with a generous white head. Tons of hop presence in the nose- big aromas of citrus, pine, apricot. Taste continues with same flavours- nothing really stands out and a decent balance. Just somewhat muddled. Adhering to the "less is more" theory as of late. Somehwat malty. Would not have guessed 8%. Doesn’t drink like a double. Seems to be having an identity crisis. Decent, but not outstanding.

Nice hazey amber colour, very typical Double IPA. Small white head. Very nice aroma. Fresh tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple, orange. Taste: very hop forward. Not much sweetness. Bitter aftertaste. Still fruity though. Bottle was not as fresh as I hoped for. Decent American IPA.
