Ohhhhhhh shits! Hop destruction! Awesome. Clean dark gold with a thick steady puffy head and dirty ass lacing. Giant nose of tons of hops, slightly freezer burnt vanilla ice cream - the kind only found in Neapolitan ice cream, citrus - grapefruit, minor quality of peach, melon, some caramel. The Tate is exactly what I love - a hop disaster soley created to demolish my palate. Spice burn, citrus raping, leafy pounding, caramel padding, savage beat down. Honey, lemon, grapefruit, leaf, perfume. Daring, punishing and an all around fist fight. Not the most complex or best put together iipa but am I really going to consider that - not at all. Price point and a bitter sodomy makes me stock this. Period.

Not sure about this one, I don't like the overpowering taste of pine. Just my opinion... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber - it pours a mostly clear copper with a thick overflowing fluffy straw colored head. Big funky aroma with a lot of barnyard, pine resin, citrus peel and a marigold floral undertone. Very bitter flavor...big pine resin, intense citrus pith, barnyard funk, hint of medicinal funk and light malt. Long intense lingering bitterness.

Flavor is barnyard, caramel malts, LOTS of pine, citrus peel (including lemon and grapefruit), soap. Pretty tasty.
