3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is pretty typical for a IIPA, with pine and citrus hops, a bit of floral, and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour is very bitter, with shitloads of citrusy hops, a big floral quality too, and a sufficient malt backbone. Hugely dominated by the citrus. Semi-sweet without destroying the hoppiness. Solid IIPA, but short of anything overly stimulating.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours clear copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Lots of citrus in the aroma. Med body. Flavor is citrus/grapefruit rind over malt that is just barely withstanding the hop. Goes a little piney towards the finish. Why does everyone keep trying to do these hoppy DIPAs? Because they taste really really really good. Like this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 On draught at the brewpub, served in a snifter. This beer is a clear bright orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing. Piney hops aroma with notes of citrus and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hoppy character that has pine and citrus notes, along with a nice malty balance. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
