4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great name for a beer that fully illustrates the flavor. This does taste like sauce made out of hops. And, again, with the $3.99 price on the bomber. I was sad to see my shop was out of this when I recently went there. I should have bought some to stock up. And by stock up, I mean drink all of them in one night because my "Off switch" would be passing out on my couch after a bunch of 8.1% bombers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Ruddy orange, with an even, earthy aroma. This drinks with a thick malty base, almost syrupy. The little bit of rustic bitterness of hops merely floats on the wavetops. (#6169, 4/17/2016)

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaska. Doftar starkt av tall o en lite fruktig doft. Smaken tydligt av persika o päron. Riktigt krämig i munnen med en bra beska. En härlig dipa. Roligt att få en god öl på långfredagen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a hazy goldem with a white head. 8.2% ABV in this version. Nose has some perfumy hops. Rich, malty body - perhaps more fruity than malty. Soft on the palate, solid late bitterness. Ok, but naturally lacks crispiness in the hops. 220216

Bottle. Pours a nice cloudy orange/amber color, with a small off-white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral and a little peach. Taste has an initial sweet mix of grapefruit and pine, that is quickly overpowered by the massive hops that stays as a bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 Oz: not the lift or balance for me. A little green and lacks what I’m looking for in a DIPA.
