Draught at GJBF Yokohama 2014. Sweet and fruity, biscuit malt, sharp hoppy finish. Good drinkablility, hop fruitiness covering the alcohol nicely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours dull burnt yellow with thin head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with just a hint of hops and some odd funky notes. Taste is big bitter juicy hops, with light citrus and pine notes. Nice caramel malt body that fades quickly into the background next to these hops. Big dominant bitterness. Not top of the class for DIPAs, but excellent for the price. I really had no idea Scuttlebutt could do a beer this good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber (8% ABV) from the brewpub. The appearance is a hazy orange and honey golden color with creamy beige head. Aroma is a sweet and floral blend of hops, toasted malt and candied citrus. The taste opens up with bitter, resinous hops and ruby red grapefruit followed by pine, orange citrus and alcohol toward the back end. The malt holds up against the hops onslaught for the most part. The body has a slightly syrupy, creamy body with moderate carbonation. The finish is mostly citrus and vegetal hops bitterness. Along with the Barley Wine. itís the breweryís most enjoyable offering that Iíve tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the tap. Slightly hazy medium orangey golden yellow with white head. Grapefruit hops, a sweet bready malt with a subtle bubblegum-ness, quite dry resinous finish. Almost a dry sticky palate. Flavours donít quite meld in my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was hazy burnt orange gold with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are toffee, sweet malts upfront then citrus, piney hops, hints of alcohol. Taste are smooth sweet caramel malt base upfront that gives way to grassy, piney, lemony and tangerine hops profile with hints of alcohol. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting citrusy, piney, grassy long finish. A good DIPA, just a tad to much pine for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle in my Spiegalau ipa glass pours a slightly hazy orange color with q thick off white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, tropical, resin and citrus. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thin and oily with ok carbonation ans a dry finish. Overall this is a more of a tropical citrus forward double ipa. Not as hoppy as I expected though. I like it better on tap. One of my favorites from Scuttlebutt still.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This "imperial IPA" has a very strong hop aroma and flavor, however it isnít as bitter as the Gale Force IPA. There is a strong malt backbone to offer a level of balance but with over two and a half pounds of hops per barrel it resonates hops from start to finish. With so much flavor happening you miss the 8.6% alcohol by volume so be careful when serving or drinking. Hops were added at every stage of the process...it was dry-hopped with chinooks for two weeks. 75 IBUís. Hops: chinook, centennial, columbus, cascade, bullion.
