3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. No idea what the label has to do with anything. Pretty, pale marigold orange and an anemic ivory head. I appreciate that the beer is pale, not red or brown as so many 2IPAs are. The nose is rife with tropical fruits and Christmas tree, also toffee malt aroma... but weird plastic and lychee lurk in the shadows. Tastes semisweet and insanely fruity, but not neccesarily hoppy, with a big presence of sultanas and white rum, and hints of orange and MD20/20. Thin razor bitterness and bracing alcohic heft. Creamy without being "thick". The aftertaste combines fruity apple and hot asphalt. Some jagged edges and quality issues throughout. Except for the abv, doesn’t seem especially "imperial".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l can. Smells really good this. Piney, really fresh, lots of strong pungent hops. It’s both citrussy and peachy sweet. Looks really good also with a cloudy peach orange colored body and a medium sized slowly fading going islandy and sidesticking white top. Really nice aroma indeed. Tropical almost. It has a nice thick oily texture in the mouth and it’s just below average on the carbonation. Fruity, really ripe fruity in the taste this one. Strawberries, some surprise black currants thing also going on here. It’s really bitter, but still well balanced with a thick oily malty backbone. Lots of flavor, a lovely aroma. Nice DIPA indeed. 28.08.2016
