3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle Batch 12. Golden pour, white head. Smell is sweet crackery malt, hard whiffs produce some citrus and herb aromas. Flavor has a nice bitterness, it is herbal, nice grassiness, the malt is there but adds more flavor than sweetness. Tasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma has some mild citrus hops and herbal notes, a doughy malt, but gets a bit overwhelmed with a buttery toffee that distracts. The flavor is earthy, citrus and a touch herbal hops, doughy malts, light caramel, a slight buttery notes with mild bitterness to the finish. The flavor is better than the nose.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber bottle and served in a tulip: Clean golden hue with a long lasting frothy head and very good lacework. The aroma has notes of citric and piney hops, slight dankness and pepper esters too. Biscuity and faint caramel malt on the nose. The taste is a quick dash of bitterness and juicy hops before fading towards a chalky malt midesection and astringent short finish with a touch of alcohol. The mouth feel is lively but not all that crisp, metallic and tea-baggy. Overall a quaffable brew but make no mistake about it, this is an IPA and not an APA.

Bomber to taster (thanks Beerpig317). Looks solid; a mostly transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes hoppy and malty with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but fairly forgettable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Batch #12. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a really nice lacing. Aroma is crackery pale malts with a nice sweetness and a good amount of juicy, citrusy florals. A slight pine note as well. Flavor is similar. Somewhat sweet, grainy and bready pale malts with a touch of caramel and a nice, juicy citrus floral hopping. Some pines towards the end as this finishes dry and moderately bitter, but a bit sweet from the malts and the juiciness of the hops. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation with a bit of an alcohol note. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Juicy, bitter, and a bit sweet while staying balanced throughout. Good beer.
