3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold with a sticky, tall, white head.
Hop aroma of pine and citrus.
The flavor is a juicy malt base that holds up a resiny, citrus hop flavor and bitterness.
They describe it well.

Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white head. Big pithy citrus aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, faint toasty grass bitters, more citrus pith, some straw.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours clear and light golden colour with not much head. Seems like not enough carbonation. Aroma of grassy floral hops, a slight bit of pine. Taste is a bit different than the aroma - thin and slight bitterness.

Bomber. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Big hop aroma. Lemon and grassy flavors though not very complex overall. A mediocre IPA that is still quite drinkable just not that memorable.

bottle... a bit ugly, dark gold with deep cooper notes, murky, light watery tan head... the aroma at first is some nice dank notes but then it becomes skunky, average... this seems a bit old, skunky with light grass, watery, not much here
