Lightly chilled 22 oz bomber into a shaker pint No visible bottling date.

Look- Medium amber, light haze. Loose, foamy head. Nice Lacing.

Smell- Earthy, skunky, dank pine. Semi-sweet graham cracker malt.

Taste- Straightforward, somewhat nondescript but aggressive bittering. More graham cracker and pine, not as fruity as expected. OK.

Mouthfeel- Medium full, finishes fairly dry for the style. Heavier than I'd like.

Overall- Meh, it's fine. Not avoidable, but not particularly good either. Nothing really stands out. For a moderately pricey bomber, it's lackluster. I wouldn't purchase it again.

It's a hazed gold with a solid quilt of bone white foam. Smells like grapefruit, onion, body odor, some more onion, some resin and hemp, a little orange. The flavor is bitter, more onion, more body odor and musk, some lighter grain, some orange and grapefruit pith. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a little wetness on the finish. A little too aggressive with the citra hops, makes it go from fruity love to veggie sadness.

From a 22 oz bottle, this is a yellow-gold brew, with a white, frothy head. It has a slightly floral, fruity smell. The scent of fruit is especially pleasant....peach and apricot. Slight sugar and flowers. Sharp and bitter hop flavor right in the foretaste. The flavor then softens as a pale and mild malt taste slides into the mid taste. The finish is a lingering hop bitterness. Nice brew.

22oz bottle. Clear copper with a rocky bright-white head. Sudsy lacing that sticks. Smells leafy, herbal and a touch piney, with a light mix of green citrus and doughy sweetness across the back. The taste is the same, with a mellow mix of green bitterness, herbal flavors and light tropical fruit. A neutral bready sweetness serves as a backbone. Dry, bitter and resinous on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slick creaminess and just a touch of crispness to the carbonation. Alcohol is kept in check. This was an alright IPA with a good mix of hop flavors going on with it. I just wish that it had been a bit more memorable. It’s hard to justify the more expensive bomber price on this though.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a lightly hazy medium gold color with 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma was good, lots of pine hops with a bit of citrus. Not much malt showing through. On the tongue the flavor profile was pretty similar, lots of pine and the citrus had more of a presence, especially on the finish.

The body was good, just a bit fuller than typical, but not heavy at all. Drinkability was pretty good, as the only non-pumpkin beer on tap at a local bars recent pumpkin fest, the 3 of these I had as palate cleansers really hit the spot. Certainly worth trying if you see it.
