3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from HalfTime. Pours light golden/orange amber with a transient white head. Aroma of light citrus and some herb/veg. Med body. Flavor is rather herbal with some background citrus. It’s a good hoppy beer, but at 7% I don’t think it qualifies as imperial/double. Finishes dry and pretty bitter.

Bottle at a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and graininess on the nose, soft sweet toast, a bit of dusty hops. Grainy, sweet with some caramel and some light earthy hops. Moves into a long bitterness. As with most Saranac beers, this is not terrible.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Pony Bar HK with Linh and Vi. Pours an amber body with white lacing. Aroma is plain - maybe some muted malts, lots of caramel, and grainy lager notes. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of grain, somehwat offensive. Not an IPA, no where near a double IPA. Awful.

From a 22 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that recedes leaving lots of lacing. Feint hop aroma. Flavors of resiny pine and grass. Not the best combo of hop flavors. Bitter finish.
