3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose of light caramel and strong orange marmalade (striking!) with lighter greens and wood. Pours hazy orange with a too-large and excitable dense beige head. Taste medium bitter but really smacks with dense carbonation and a high degree of mineral flavor (think bottled mineral water). Generally clean with a little wheat/caramel like flavor on a slime, bitterness turns a leafy green with light resin and the minerals turn a bit too salty. Touch of cookie. Medium body but the carbonation bumps it up a notch. Lightly sweet, bit drier in the aftertaste. Touch of alcohol showing but barely, some interesting dark toffee flitting about the bottom after the citrus very quickly recedes. Overall very fresh, but also raw. [2015.11.02: 3.1]

Bomber. Clear golden amber pour, with a white head. Pine, caramel, fairly bitter, notes of citrus, bread, and some (honey) sweetness. Ok, but too much malt for my liking in an IPA.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy Amber color. Massive rocky beige head. Spicy toasted malt nose has notes of cinnamon and caramel. Slightly tart bready toasted malt flavor. Some spicy bitterness upfront. Seems unbalanced and in disarray. Not an atypical IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (5.25%) from Grocery Outlet. Medium amber in color. Lightly sweet nose with an earthy sort of hop character to it. Bready up front with a pretty strong grapefruit peel finish. A little bit of an earthy English hop character as well. Not a real hoppy IPA. Almost more of an esb or something.
