Very sweet! There is a strong berry flavor to this - perhaps raspberry - yes I think it’s raspberry! Not my favorite IPA but certainly drinkable for a change of pace.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
IPA 8/15/13 Pours gold with a big fluffy white head, classic Stone quality brewing. Aroms has grassy, floral, tea on nose. Flavor is big, some straw-like malt accompanying robust spicy and leafy hops with strong bitterness in tow. A bit hot and alcoholic towards finish. ABV contributes a weighty lick on an otherwise crisp body. 3.7.

One full tick up from the unbelievable regular Stone IPA. This is one we should hope they keep in long term production.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit and orange, floral, grassy notes, and orange pekoe tea. The orange pekoe tea is a main component of the flavour profile accompinied by citrus grapefruit notes, resinous hops, the malty toffee notes are in the background but still help to balance everything out. Solid.

Malty sweetish aroma with some grapefruit hops. Taste is some grapefruit but mostly piney bitter hops. The malt balances well though making it very enjoyable. Bit of a sweet finish but well balanced.

bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a lingering off-white head. It has a pleasant aroma led by citrus and floral hops. The flavor has big hops bitterness with complex hops character that spicy/herbal as well as some citrus. Medium bodied with a bitter finish, this is a strong, dangerously drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hmm, not one of my favorite IPAs. It has a good cloudy amber pour w/ a good retaining white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is surprisingly mild at best & not all that enticing. The taste is fairly subtle as well. There’s a big bitterness kick upfront but it quickly fades & almost finishes clean. The 9.5% is hidden well but this just doesn’t have the flavor complexity I was hoping for!

Bomber from Country Club Liquors. Nose is light pine resin, floral, and some sweet caramel malts. Hazy urine yellow with a medium, heavy lacing, pale yellow head. Flavor is only lightly bitter, hints of fruitiness, and a hint of alcohol warmth. Finishes with light bitterness.
