3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of head on a dark straw colored body.
The aroma is a dank pine... interesting, but still nice.
The taste is a solid pine dank bitterness with a good malt background.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
A solid IPA.

Musty grapefruit and grain are the main notes here. Not destroyingly bitter considering the intimidating-looking hop bill - finishes dry, not super bitter, which is appreciated. Not a very complex flavor profile, but decent and drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice change of pace for an IPA. A great beer for people who donít normally drink IPAs, as itís definitely not a palate wrecker. It wonít take the paint off a wall. Very well balanced, most notably in the malt. Recommended pairing: mushroom pizza with lots of mushrooms and mozzarella cheese (and some truffle oil if you got it). Itís a very comfortable IPA.

Would be a decent pale alebut lacking as an IPA. Nice malt combo going on which saved it from being crap. The lightly citrus and grapefruit notes are nice, but far too light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle purchased at Bel Air in Woodland. Drink by 8/23/15. Not sure how old that makes this beer. The aroma has a weird, rye-like peppery note. Also some sweet caramel maltiness, too. Perhaps some earthy hops. Really seems like an English or east coast IPA. Body is a ruddy copper color with a medium to large, strong foamy egg-shell head present. Starts with a sweet, sugary caramel malty flavor. The middle is mildly bitter with earthy and herbal hop flavors. Abundant carbonation is present. Finishes with a little residual stickiness. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong resinous aroma, grapefruit and pine with caramel and bready maltiness
Pours a cloudy amber color with medium sized rocky off white head that lasts
Sweet caramel and bready malt flair with loads of grapefruit and piney hops. Well balanced.
Medium full bodied with medium co2, lingering bittersweet finish.
Enjoyable IPA. I like the malt profile.

Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy copper with an off-white head. Aroma is somewhat roasty malt with lots of mostly citrus hop. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt with a lot of floral/citrus hop. Pretty dry. Kind of like a highly hopped best bitter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours murky copper with an attractive off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a slightly bitter brown malt flavor with a very dry finish. This is indeed an unusual IPA with both British and American characteristics. Overall, pretty tasty.
