3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a crystal clear deep copper gold with a thick head of foam that is solid, long lasting and laces the glass. The aroma is pine needles & biscuity malts. Full bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel it has a soft but persistent earthy "green" bitterness that evokes a walk through a pine forest. Really interesting stuff for lovers of bitter hoppy IPAs.

Bottles. Close to as advertised. What's missing: Can taste the extra alcohol. A little too dry under it all. Somewhat like sucking on a tea bag. Pissed that's it's more expensive than regular products. Definitely prefer Gale Force, which was $2 less for a sixer.

big broom straw thru out the experience. hoppy a bit in the backround with grapefruit citrus. slick and a bit syrup like the brew is somewhat sweet which gives a candy like dimension to the grapefruit. some caramel in there.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Unclear orange, fading off-white foam. Citrus floral herbal hoppy aroma. Bitter citric pine taste, spicy earthy herbal and floral hops mostly mask the faint c-malts. Average carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Dry resinous harsh finish. Rough and unbalanced. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, tropical fruits, and light pine. Taste of bitter pine and spruce with grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple. Lingering bitterness, alcohol well hidden. A good DIPA.
