3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting] Amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, grapefruit, grass, and lots of citrus fruits. Taste of citrus, pine, grapefruit, light sweetness, and bitter hop finish. Bittering seemed a bit too high, just like a really fresh Ruination.

The sweetness on the aroma blends with the hops. Taste very hopy but with a twist.. literally a twist from mouth full to swallow. Very good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beer Run. Enjoy by 02.15.13. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of fresh resin, pine, citrus hops and faint caramel malts. The taste is citrus, resin, candied citrus, pine hops, some tropical notes, faint caramel malts, a touch of banana and green banana. Very aggressive assault on the tongue, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Medium bodied, and shockingly, persistent lingering bitterness. Nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 02.15.13. Enjoyed on 01.17.13. Clear copper pour with a short off-white head. Beautiful nose of ultra fresh prickly pine, lemony citrus and a clean malt backdrop. Very bitter, medium sweet flavor. Also very nice. This beer doesnt seem like its near 9.4 abv. Medium body, creamy texture, and a long, long bitter finish. Off the charts. I need to cellar a few of these...

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Bottle enjoy by 2-15-13. Appearance: crystal clear golden pour with quickly dissipating foamy white head. Aroma: beautiful big floral and citrus, grapefruit, and some sweet malt and pine resin. Taste: floral hops up front, juicy grapefruit, tangerine and sweet caramel sugar malt in the middle, ending with grapefruit pith and piney dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel: thin slick body with medium carbonation. Overall: AMAZING! One of the (if not the) best DIPAs I’ve had. West coast style. Beautifully balanced malt backbone and multilevel hop profile.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Obviously) very fresh IPA. Pours with low carbonation, and has a nice orange-tinged translucent appearance. Taste-wise, three things stand out: freshness in hops; citrus taste; and well balanced bitterness -- not crazy bitter. Among the three "fresh" IPAs I've had, I slot this below fresh Pliny the Elder and above fresh Rogue GYO wet-growth (in the green bottle). Recommended, and good stuff!

On draught at Papago. Pours clear copper with an eggshell head. Aroma is massive citrus, unripe mango and tropical fruit. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied and somewhat slick. Bitterness and alcohol give a little bite in the finish. Very good beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2/15/13 edition. Drinking at home out of bomber poured into pilsner glass. Aroma- very nice clean hop aroma with citrus notes. Appearance- golden/light orange color with little head and carbonation. Taste- this is amazing stuff. Great amount of hops but soo drinkable. Palate- even the palate tastes clean as can be with wood fired hops flavor. Overall- one of my favorite beers of all time. Wish i could have more!
