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)

WHoa, wayyyyy too boozy for only 8%. Between the alcohol flavor and the stinging bitterness, i can tell you that this beer is not for me. there’s some earthy, pine flavors in there somewhere. I’m so glad that somebody left a bottle of this in the lobby and i didn’t pay money for it.

On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest 2010. Pours a bright golden orange. Big, citrus hops, lots of caramel malts - a really great balance overall. Very hop-forward, but not at all sharp or acerbic. Really tasty stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 22oz bottle, new to market today. Bottle lists abv at 8%. Pours a darker orange honey golden, clear with a slightly off white head that is on the creamy dense side and leaves behind some moderate lacing. Nose doesn’t lean one way or the other on the hop/malt side...mostly a sweeter fruit punch like aroma. Kind of full on the body and leans toward the slick side...not bad and works with the perfect carbonation. Fruity, touch of bittering, full malt...though doesn’t cross over the line by much, drinks easy and a good value at $4 for the bomber. Happy to support a local brewery and will go get some more while fresh. Could use a new label though...we don’t need any other Seattle area brewers using Pirates in their marketing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice deep gold. Nose is earthy, with hops, pin and a bit of sweetness. Taste is a bit weak. Overly sweet for a double IPA but very drinkable.
