4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of head, orange colored body. Smells of grapefruit and hops. Smooth beer taste of hops is excellent without a major bitter aftertaste. Only downfall was that I expected it to be a little higher alcohol content. Great beer, less bitter than Hopslam but lacks the real kick I was looking for.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 I’ve tried this on both bottle and keg and its truly magnificent the best IPA ive had in the UK (sooo hard to find) impossibly dry with enormous grapefruit,citrus and lychee flavours quite acidic there’s loads of hop types in here as its rather complex for an IPA which isn’t my favorite style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale, orange-golden with a thick creamy head that keeps on building. Hop bouquet is tremendous and exquisitely rounded. Piney spiciness upfront, followed by a wonderfully flowery fragrance, and held together with a twist of citrus. Flavor is immense and indeed ruinous. Very sweet and piney, candy-like, with a hint of orange. Perceived bitterness is actually quite mellow considering. A grassy, acrid character comes across which I’d attribute to dry-hopping. Malt profile is hard to detect. Relatively clean on the palate with an enveloping bitterness. A classic IPA and quite agreeable if you’re into the ridiculous. Myself, I prefer a more subtle, flowery hop dimension rather than something this robust.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a medium frothy head. Aroma shouts Western style IPA with classical citrus and pine hops. Taste is fairly bitter, but in line for this style. Also has a medium body with a fairly dry finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew to enjoy.

Une belle amertume malheureusement pas
Assez révélée par un nez plutôt faible.

Bomber. Poured a nice gold color with a small, mostly lasting white head. Nice clarity. Super hop bomb-a-thon aroma, touching off notes of pine, citrus (orange), grass, and flowers. Some butter and honey. Initially quite bitter with flavors of pine and metal. Lightly sweet in the middle with some alcohol warmth, then the bitterness picks up speed again for a very long, dry finish. Velvety smooth, medium carbonation. Not my style, but I can appreciate this brew.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Makes a fluffy white head, with a nice pale golden body, nice lacing on the glass. Nice floral aromatics, piney hops, sweet malts, very balanced nose. Starts out bitter as f*ck, then enter sweetness and piney flavor, its yummy. Bitter dry finish, alcohol is there but not overdone. Medium body coats the mouth nicely and leaves a light sticky reside on the throat. This one is spot on, the ABV is just right in that you could enjoy a few of these and not completely leave yourself face down, dick in the dirt. Praise Stone.

Bottle, pours dusky amber with short head. Fruitful and piney aroma. Flavor is hops all the way, melting to a slight malt texture at the end. Good, but not as good as other IPA’s I’ve tried.
