3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Kevin for hooking me up with this! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a light tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit note with a bit of growing pine and a caramel/toffee backing. Flavor has a good amount more of backing sweet grains with some pine hops and just a hint of grapefruit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Spec’s - Memorial in Houston, TX. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a white soapy head. Nice citrus and sweet peachy aroma. Little bit of malt sneaking in there on aroma as well. Taste is very similar. Fairly aggressive on the tongue. Good brew. This actually softens up and gets a little fruitier/peachier as it warms a bit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a crystal clear light orange body and an aggressively large, tight bubbled, bone hued off-white head. Staying power is good as is the lacing. Aromas of orange, citrus, light butterscotch (uh-oh), bready, a touch of rotten fruit, lightly herbal, some pine notes. Some caramel and bready hints. No alcohol. Clean fermentation. Flavors are on the sweeter side of things (surprisingly nearly a neutral balance!), tea, citrus, some bitterness. Caramel, orange, grapefruit. Very easy drinking, not rough in anyway (by aggressive cohumulone, alcohol or otherwise). I wish it were a bit fresher, but at only 2 and change months old, I am not sure how much better it would be fresh (I have been a touch generous). Creamy, smooth, not harsh in anyway, a touch warming. A hint of vegital hop matter in the finish. Medium bubbles, decently dry. Good beer overall.

12 oz. bottle via trade with a DLD buddy from Houston- thanks Bryan! Pours a clear, bright amber color with virtually no head. Sweet aroma of citrus fruits, sweet malts, piney hops, and a little boozy heat. Flavor of citrus fruits, pineapple, sweet malts, grassy hops, and pine resin. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy mouthfeel that finishes resinous and sticky. Solid DIPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap at flying saucer in houston, probably the least impressive of the 20 tap beer i tried that day. pale golden, clear and with a thin head; odd notes of whiskey in the aroma; hints of lemon-scented cleaning products and schnapps; somehow had really lost its edge - surely must normally be better than this
