3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Lynnwood, WA; 7% ABV
Amber color, quite dark, with red hue; medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma, blend of caramel, leafy hops and pine resins; and a hint of frankincense, The body is lighter than expected; some caramel flavor, correct bitterness, but the hop qualities are a bit missing, and the frankincense touch (or cedar wood) seems out of place now; a lingering acidity in the final too is not expected.
Weird. But not bad.

22oz Bottle pours a reddish amber with a dense creamy light tan head. Nice aroma of piney hops and caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and woody. Papery and woody with pine trees again. Feel is heavy and smooth and softly carbonated. Just OK

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel and earthiness with a crisp dry lightly bitter lingering earthy finish. A BIG disappointment coming from the PNW!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour. Nice caramelly IPA in almost a SN celebration vein. Not a hop blast, but rather well balanced. I really enjoyed this one. Great value.
