3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottle was a sample from the brewery, I heard some guy left to go brew somewhere else and then he came back to the fold and he and Russ made this little gem of a DIPA. Poured into snifter deep amber with a yittle bit of orange hanging out, small quarter inch white head. Leaving behind some nice lacing. I have no ABV info but I was told its up there, feels like 9-10%. one qualm I have is that aroma is low, I get a faint hit of pine but no nose to speak of. Mouthfeel medium, carbonation is likewise, very nice on the palate. High level of bitterness and very very piney. Finish is long and dry as well. this reminds me of liberator before it went insanely bitter this year (shit is crazy on the lemon peel) this is just the right amount bitter up in your face without being assualtive. Overall this is my favorite about to be distributed and available right brain brews. Prost!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a clear amber color with a nice 2 finger head that fades normally and leaves some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, citrus, herbs, earth, flowers. Taste has no sweetness, moderate bitterness. Very dry herbal and floral hops. Lots of malt in the bitter, dry finish. Nice oily and fairly thick mouthfeel. Overall, love the appearance and some other things about this beer. Itís a few tweaks away from being great.

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit earthy pine and grass with a earthy grain backbone. Flavor is full of pine and resin with an earthy grain backbone.
