Strong hop aroma. Full malt body, infused with super fresh hops, which are citrus forward with some pine. Bitterness in just the right amount; this is not a hop bomb. Perfectly balanced, and recommended! A-

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer I tried was not called "15th Anniversary;" merely Hopvine IPA.
Serving: from tap at Schooner Exact Tap Room.
Aroma: moderate cat piss hops.
Appearance: small, frothy, white, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-yellow body.
Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and moderately bitter, grapefruit finish with average duration.
Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Great hoppy aroma but not overly bitter.

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy dark orange with bright golden bronze edges. Dense creamy tan head that doesnt hang around forever. Loose stringy lace. Enormous sweet orange and orange rind nose, tangerines and grapefruits. Intensely fruity. Hop showcase. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel mid palate with sparkling fruit notes all over. Balanced, harmonious, and distinctly powerful. Beautifully done.

This beer is hoppy...a bit more so than I normally prefer, but unlike some other high hop beers that I have drank, this one began to grow on me. My wife surprised me with a growler of it, and I wasnít sure I would finish it...that is not going to be a problem.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Strong citrus aroma with a hint of caramel. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is astringent citrus with a decent caramel backdrop. Maybe some resin. There is a mild hop burn that builds. Itís really not far from a DIPA, flavorwise. Very, very nice ale.

Big citra hop bubble gum nose, pale malt sweetness, a little crackery malt. Golden orange pour, nice head and lace. Flavors of citrus hops, nice and tropical bubblegum, crackery malt a little sweetness. Nice citra finish. Good shit manne! You could probably put citra hops in poop and I would like it.

Bomber. Maybe Iím a little stuffed up but I canít pull much off the nose. A little pine and caramel. Flavor takes a little while to adjust to. Super earthy, piney, almost nutty/peanut buttery hop flavor. Pretty stiff bready malts. Flavor is just deliciously balanced and hoppy without a bunch of bitterness. The mouthfeel is exquisite. Creamy and smooth. Highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Schooner. This has transitioned to a yearly seasonal, no longer just for Hopvine Pub. Listed here as 6.1% abv. Probably should be a new listing, but Iíll put it here. Pours bright golden amber with thin lacey white head. Aroma is mild, slightly nutty pale malt, with fresh floral and citrusy hops. Taste is light crisp caramel malt, with big fresh hops - nice earthy, bitter grapefruit notes. Aggressively hopped such that itís almost a fresh hop IPA. Nice changeup from the 3 Grid - not necessarily hoppier, just fresher hop notes.
