4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another high-test IPA that sat in my fridge for about two years. At least it stayed in my fridge, and seems not the worse for wear. Smell is mostly hops, but in the grapefruit and papaya mode. Light golden body, almost like a Bud until tI see the reddish highlights around the edges. Big, bold Imperial ale taste. Hops keep it very bitter, but still can’t disguise the extra sweetness on top of a big alcohol payload (and this was listed in RB as 9.5% abv when I got this). Geez, I think the last 3F’s bomber I had all to myself was a Dark Lord. This is equal in comparison as a different style/ Lighter in taste, I’d say, than a Hopslam, but still kind of thick and syrupy, leaving a coating along with the lace on the side of my IPA tulip. Holds up great when stored cool!

Pours murky yellow. Malty with a creamy mouthfeel. Mild citrus Orange hops with a hint hint of spice. Long mild malty hop finish.

Bomber from Hot Rod. Milk Suger is definitely a unique approach. Creates a complex beer.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Pruf! Creamy foam, creamy orange body. Big worty sweet grain aroma. Firm heavy IPA body with a twist of lacto smack in the middle. A bit of a honey note, but generally feels to me like it accentuates a character in some strong ipas of creamy, bitter grain. Tasty but I’m not sold on the style. Creamy string bitter finish with some hot alc notes.

Big thanks to Matt for sharing the bottle. Hazy orange pour. Nose is heavy on the malt, as expected. Hops sit behind some sugary malts. Smells like wort. Like walking down a street when the nearby brewery is mid-boil. Chewy. More bitterness in the flavor. Finish is candied citrus resin. Interesting add with the lactose. Really not bad, though I’ve never been big on midwest IPAs.

Wow, holy cow. Malt body with velvet smoothness leads to pure crisp hop flavor and a touch of alcohol heat. But still drinkable. The malt keeps it from a pure hop bomb, but tons of hop flavor that lingers on the plate. A touch resinous but a big beer that you can sip and lose track of. Must love hops.

Old notes. Draught @ Mikkeller Bar Sthlm 6/9-14.
App: Somewhat hazy golden amber with a creamy dirt white head leaving some lace.
Aroma: Sticky sweet bitter aroma with grapefruit, mango, apricot, litchi and resin as well as sticky caramel and some toast.
Taste: Also on the sweet side with apricot, grapefruit, lychee with caramel and toast and a resiny herbal bitter finish with a pinch of alcohol.
Palate: Bigger body with soft carbonation and a sticky oily texture.
Overall: A sweet and robust sticky DIPA with lots of jammy fruits like apricot. Bold, but well made and tasty.

Very good. But I prefer malt sweetness to cow. Great hop qualities. Odd palate. I’d have again.
