4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz into a tulip. Firm head summons a good beer as it leaves no holes and surrounds the glass with foam. Dissapates quickly and leave a thin film throughout. Tatse is hoppy and up front, just how a brew of this type should be. Organic apple, a mixed bag of citurs with a primary resident being grapefruity. This is a very flavourful brew and keeps one coming back for more. Nicely done here. Color is a meduim bodied orange with bronze and some caramel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy light amber with a 1 finger creamy/bubbly near-white head. Lots of fruity hop over a slightly roasted malt backbone. Near full in body. Lots of sweet caramel with lots of fruity/floral hop. Iíd say this one is toward sweet rather than dry, but itís a close call. Itís bitter, but not the harsh NW bitter. So flavorful. They did not skimp on ingredients. Itís almost chewy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Amberish, slight haze, large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft sweet hoppy nose, very pale citrus peel, overall somewhat musty and a little aged.   Hoppy, yet not real bitter, and not terribly sweet either.   Seems more of an IPA that perhaps has a bit more malt forward.   This reminds me very much of an IIPA that has been around for a while.   No idea on age of this, but seems a bit aged.   Its not broken, but it has this certain basement/mustiness that makes me think its got some time on it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Hops seem to slowly come forward towards the finish.   Not a real bruiser, but respectable in its own right.   Not real bright, but also not dull.   Yeah, as this finish it becomes a little more biting.   Could use a bit more citrus sweetness and then this would be stellar.   Fairly tasty otherwise.   Thanks Jeff!

another big thanks to davey101 for this guy. From a 22 oz bottle pours a darker orange color with a thicker white head that leaves slowly . The smell is of citrus and malt and pine. Taste is good hoppy on the front but finishes very sweet and carmely. This is an over all good balanced beer. I can see why they bottled this one Iím sure it was a huge hit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle shared in line at DLD by Roonai/Deyholla. Thanks! Pours a nice glowing darker orange hue, solid glow with some hop haze, a bigger offwhite near tan head sits atop, laces well, stays decent sized overall. Aromas are a melange of citrus, grapefruit, lemons, moving into some sweet malts that really seem to stick, a bit much. Some toffee, biscuits, caramel. More florals and grass. Initial is medium bodied, maybe a touch heavier with a big fruity and citrus front, dry hops and florals mesh into lemons, grapefruits, and some melon. Grass and faint pine move into a fairly sweet malt dominated middle. Toffee, biscuits, caramel, bread dough, and toast. Finish is dry with lingering citrus hops but also trailing sweet malts. Not my favorite DIPA, it is fairly sweet, but it is well made enough.
