Bomber purchased from Whole Foods. I rated the IPA earlier and Im again surprised this is the 2nd rating for something I bought at WF. This beer has a really off aroma and taste- its the same (astringent?) taste I had on the IPA, but more or worse on this effort. Its clear and nicely filtered but man there is something really not enjoyable from what could be considered a Hop Monster of a beer. Hopefully they keep tweaking things and this beer raises to the Cali DIPA level.

22oz bottle. Crystal clear light amber body with medium off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit/tangerine, light pine, dank. Taste is moderately sweet, juicy grapefruit/tangerine, light pine, bread. Resinous medium-full body, light acidity, surprisingly drinkable.

Hey!! 2 deutsche Klassiker im fetten Nadelwald, irgendwo in Nordamerika. Harzmalzhoppybrecher der fetten Sorte. Giftig, trotzdem a little bit sweety und dann jaaaaaa, The Bitterbomb. Gras, Cake und viel spritzige Fruchtigkeit harmonieren fast perfekt. 0,66/8?? DEMOLEN Onlinestore. Fett. Thanx...

Not quite as clean and crisp as the Lupulin, a hint spicier and pinier. Less dry. Solid beer.

Knee Deeps IPAs are pretty kind to me. I havent had a bad one yet. Hoptologist pours yellow with white suds. Dank aromatics with cannabis, damp pine needles, and flowers. It tastes like earth - grass, trees, and leaves. Toward the finish theres some fruity sweetness in the forms of tangerine and orange marmalade. Thick, chewy feel. The 9% ABV is completely hidden. The 102 IBUs are certainly not hidden. Finishes dry and mostly crisp. Lovely.

Tap at Fujiyama. Bit of caramel, citrus, resins. Nice grapefruit flavor, white peper, a bit heavy and thick but pretty decent.
