Tallahassee, Fl - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light copper with s sticky fluffy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Minty aroma with hints of green tea. Flavor has a fruity backbone with a pear-like essence. Some ginger notes makes their way through, some juicy fruit gum, a bit of unknown spice. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from Samís, Durham. The overbearing cuteness of this theme is already making me think negatively about this beer, before itís even in the fridge. Cloudy orange pour with a moderate head. Nose is spicy from the ginger and muddled from the tea, without much sense that this is actually an IPA. Mouthfeel is fairly lively, with crisp carbonation tend to accentuate the spiciness even further. Some hops do come through but theyíre more or less generically bitter, without much personality. Kind of like this beer.

22oz bottle, purchased for $9 from Beer Run. Poured into a snifter. Awesome noticeably ginger aroma, and green tea. Creamy, smooth, lighter carbonation, above average body. Good herbal mildly soapy hop aroma. Light lemon. Seeing the rice pudding. Definitely floral. Light wheat. Complex, light bitter, with some zest. Amber/orange color made hazy by lots of particles suspended in the body. Awesome, creative take on an IPA. More enjoyable than Stoneís green tea attempt, from what I remember... This is much more smooth and balanced. Excellent, interesting brew. Would love to revisit.

Bottle at Maggieís Attic. Well, this is interesting. Itís not massively hopped but the herbal spice seems to mimmick the hops to give it a sharp bitter edge. Itís very drinkable though with plenty of tropical fruit and coconut flavors. Grassy and herbal notes are consistant throughout. Thereís a dry bitter finish. Well done and really solid stuff.

8 oz. pour at The Pit. The aroma is sweet and malty with a fair hoppiness and some kind of spice, Iím guessing jasmine and looking at the description after the fact, was apparently correct. This is full bodied in a very good way. The hops are interesting. They give it a constant sting and a dry finish but donít quite come to life. Grassy notes are everywhere with hints at cheese and a woody flavor that is almost cedar-like. I like this one despite the relatively timid hops.

Thin off-white head of fine bubbles with decent carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma with some roasted malts, floral hops and a bit of toasted coconut upon deep inhale. Color is a medium orange with a slight haze to it. Wow, flavor is lively with jasmine, ginger, dry floral hops and some other spices and herbal flavors. Maybe even a bit of wheat texture and flavor in there. Strong hops presence and bitterness with a light alcohol presence. Finishes bitter and floral. This is a very well balanced and flavorful brew. Very good!
