3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old penny color, firm khaki head. Fantastic lacing, among the finest I’ve ever seen. Dank and floral "green" aroma, nutty malt, salty, chardonnay, wet wool. Fruity flavor and toasty Munich malt with leafy, lemony hops. Citric aftertaste. Hop flavor and bitterness is quite mild. Thin palate. Pleasant beer but far too tame to be called IPA... an American amber at best.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a dark red/copper with a small white head. Strong Pine and resin aroma. Balance up front, more malt than hops. But the bitterness lingers as the hops kick in. Really enjoy the mouth feel of this one, very coating and thick. Points lost for the bold hop flavor to match the wonderful aroma and palate.
