2.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is great but as far as IPAs it had an odd flavor on the backend. Not bad for the most part. I would definitely drink it again. I love to drink California brewery beers. Always drink local.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber from Binny’s in Schaumburg, IL. This must be well aged or badly mishandled, because no way this bottle would be a 90+ rated beer. Clear yellow-orange pour with a small soapy white head. Cardboard, stale hops, a bit of herbal - I can’t get much of the good stuff others found in this. Damn shame.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Wittales. Clear light amber pour, white head. Aroma: spicy and herbal, pines and thick caramel. Taste: Moderately sweet, a little bready, caramel with sharp bitter finish. Palate: medium+ body, slick/thick texture, average carbonation. Overall: had never heard of this one before. Pretty typical IPA with a few months on it (I presume - no bottle date).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, not a whole lot else – big pine and a thin malt backing. Flavour is identical, with monolithic piney hop notes, some juiciness, and a bready caramel malt backing. Nice pine-dominated IPA, but nothing overly special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Orange juice. Not beery orange juice, just orange juice-as-IPA. Faint chocolate malts as it warms, but overwhelmingly sweet, sweet OJ. Too sweet, too one note.

(bottle) Wanted to sample a local brewer while passing through the California Central Coast on vacation. This was a nice find. Decent IPA with grapefruit and citrus flavors. A nice find.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Citrusy and floral hops, mild bitterness and some mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is dry citrus, grapefruit and floral hops, grainy malt and mild to moderate bitterness. Drinkable. Soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle. Pours a copper amber cololur with a frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, some herbs and grass. Flavour of bready malts, floral bitterness, sweetness, herbs and quite rich grapefruit notes. Medium bodied. Dry, lingering bitter, slightly sweet finish. Good, but not as fresh as I hoped for.
