4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amazed I had managed to miss this one until now. Growler fill from the new beer shop by my house! Clear pale orange, good head. Aroma initially of beautiful pure pink grapefruit. As it warms, picks up some gummy malts and a hint of pine hops. Flavor is a masterful balance between gummy malts and grapefruit and pine hops. Yummy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small, white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is grapefruit, misc. citrus, fresh hops. The flavor follows suit: citrusy DIPA with real hop intensity, nearly a note of freshly ground pepper. A touch of honey sweetness in the back. Lingering hop bitterness. Alcohol is very well-masked.

Refrigerated brown bomber dated 2/10/14, abv on bottle 8.3% poured into a snifter. Pours clear orangish-amber with small off-white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, low carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is herbal hops, some malt backbone, and finishes bitter hops. Would have liked to try this fresher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle - pours golden orange with burnt yellow highlights. Medium bodied head with decent lacing, circular and quickly diminishing. Picking up lots of fruit with some spice on the nose. Oranges with good citrus and yeast. Full bodied with lots of bittering at the end. Malt bill nicely balances out the hops for a long pleasing finish. Really decent. Big ups to Jordan for the hook up.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 On draft. Nice flame orange color. Not a lot else going on to justify that ABV. Lots of alcohol burn. I guess there’s some citrus present, but it’s overwhelmed by the alcohol. I haven’t any idea how this one pulls the ratings it does. A big meh.
