From notes on 4/29/14

Had a bomber of this on 3/10/14. I thought this was a great beer. Love the added complexity the oak added to the IPA. I thought it was very similar to Really Cool Waterslide. Slightly better. My only complain is the cost. At $9 a bomber, I’d rather just spend the $8 and get a 6 pack of Waterslide. 4/29/14: Tried this on tap, and it was even better. Still think the bomber is over priced, but for $4 on tap, I could not go wrong. So much more citrus taste. The smell was so strong, people could smell oranges across the table. On tap, this beer is even better.

Reviewed from notes. 2014. Bomber.

A: Pours a slightly hazed golden with a solid 1-inch thick off-white head which fades slowly leaving splotchy and spotty lace.

N: Citrus (oranges mostly) and bready malts.

T: Malts dominate over the hops on this one. Some citrusy notes do come through.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry and bready, dry finish.

O: Not amazing, but not off either. Decent and enjoyable.

poured 22oz bottle into snifter.

A - Clear burnt orange with big 2.5 finger eggshell white head and superb retention, drops to a thick collar. Lacing coats the glass in large webs. Looks gorgeous.

S - This smells like a blend of wood, earth, and citrus. Oak, earthy and big notes of grapefruit citrus hops. Some sweet bread is also inviting, very nice aroma.

T - First and foremost I get a quick, sweet taste of bread and malt, with some oak notes. This is quickly cast aside to let the bitter citrus hops into play, with grapefruit, some pine and hints of earth.

M - Medium body with a slick, oily feel. There is definitely a bitter quality from the hops and oak.

O - A creative and complex IPA that stands out. I like what 3 Sheeps has been doing and they are definitely a brewery I will keep tabs on. This IPA turned out quite well.
