3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Unclear orange, off-white foam fades. Tropical citrus grapefruit aroma. Bitter grapefruit, tropical fruit hop taste dominates, some evergreen, smooth backseat caramel malts. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, more aggressively hopped. ABV is extremely well hidden. Citrusy bitter finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Orangish amber, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft citrus and pith aroma.   Moderately hopped on the tongue, but neither strong on bitterness or big in maltiness.   Comes across as less than a Double IPA, perhaps more like a 1½ IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes like it started, like a moderate IPA.   Can’t tell this is 9%, which is nice.   Decent, well built, but doesn’t seem bright or heavy in the sense that most Imperial IPAs would be.   Thanks to the guys at Bottleworks for sharing!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Much better packaging than their regulars... since that’s (sadly) more important than the actual product I hope this is a trend. Pours light amber, white head. Nose of pine resin, grapefruit. Flavour is a metric shit tonne of pine resins, orange, grapefruit, some hop petrol, caramel. Nice beer! A real 3.5-er, lol.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and toffee with malt backdrop. Flavors of pine and orange. Quite bitter. A good hoppy IPA but getting a bit yesterday and is off balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquors for $7.90. Pours a small white quick-dissipating head. Nose of ripe Seville oranges. Funny drinking this as it’s very similar to Phillips Amnesiac yet has a slightly stronger hop presence. Great medicinal alcoholic finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is pretty light for a double IPA, with some piney and floral hops, and some biscuity malt. Flavour brings out loads of bitter piney hops, loads of crystal crackery malt, and some slight metallic notes. Very dry, somewhat metallic and bitter. Not the most dynamic of flavours. Drinkable, but fairly uninteresting.
