3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mr. A’s in Palatine. Pours a golden orange with a foamy off-white head leaving some lace. Aroma has floral hops, pine, some citrus and some toffee. Taste is of sweet fruits, grain, spicy pine and some resin. Later in the glass, the toffee malts kick in and it becomes sweeter. Medium to full bodied with some definite alcohol presence. Finishes strong and sweet, with underlying bitterness fighting for attention, but losing out to the sweetness. Somewhat barleywine-ish, without the layering, probably due to late dry hopping that did not integrate well. 13.4

Had this on draft at two brothers. Reddish with sticky off white head. Has a dank bitter fruity taste to it. Boozing tropical aroma. Not bad. Not my favorite

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden orange with a thin head. Smells fruity, piney, a bit muted. Taste is piney resin with a hint of peach candy, but not too sweet. Some woody dryness at the back end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Heavy dank citrus peel, strong maltiness, seems to be bordering on Barley Wine.   A little perfumy too.   Almost has this candied apricot bite to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   As it warms the aroma even becomes like apricot or peach jam.   Fairly tasty brew.

22oz bomber- pours cloudy pale orange with cream colored head. Nose is pungent citrus pineapple and guava, resinous hops and some woody herbal hues. Rich bodied and a fair amount of malt and honey sweetness, resinous hops, dry finish. Pretty solid beer but not upper echelon

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old tick. Fresh hop dipa, maltier one, that equals a pretty bad combo, fresh hops just not for dipas.

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy dark straw toward orange with clingy off-white head. Nose is resiny hops, citrus, florals. Tastes dry, floral, assertively hoppy, with notes of pineapple and tangerine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 22 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Floral, grapefruit-citrus aromas kick off this one, and, once it mellows, some caramel malt and earthy aromas take over. There might also be some nuttiness buried in there as well - specifically walnut - but it seemed to come and go. A crystal clear amber-orange color is topped by a creamy white head leaving behind a light lacing as the drink progresses. A sharp hop bitterness greets the tongue on initial sipping, but this mellows to a more smooth bitterness complemented by a caramel malt sweetness with some citrus notes. This mellowing occurs both in the swallow and as the drink warms up. It’s a light bodied beer with a light-low carbonation level. It’s not as sticky as I was expecting an Imperial, wet-hopped IPA to be, and in fact, is pretty dry and crisp. A not offensive, floral, spicy, citrus bittering is left behind in the aftertaste which sticks around for awhile.

Bomber from Andersons in Toledo. Amber pour with thin off-white. Aroma of caramel, floral, citrus. Tastes are more of the same - sweet malt, pine, grapefruit. Nice and even with a light bitter finish. Good.
