alassio (86) - USA - JAN 30, 2014
In comparison to other citrus/pine mega-IPA’s (e.g., Hopslam, Hoptimum) this one clocks in real nice with huge rich hoppiness, syrupy richness, but also dryness. It has no cloying sweet to muck it up. In fact, it is almost tart, and the different aspects wind up with all sorts of definition: fresh & zesty; spring woodland hoppy; bitingly alive. This is a stunning beer, but it is big, big, big, and bracing too.

bartzluke (539) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 29, 2016
12 oz pour from chilled bottle into tulip. Orange, hazy, nice foamy head. Nose is bitter, citrus, a little pine, a little resin. Full body, sticky. Taste is mild up front with a strong bitter finish. Pine and resin throughout with undertones of orange. Not quite as complex as I like my DIPAs, but not bad by any stretch

Brentv (622) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2016
From bottle. Clear Orange pour with a small white head. Very fruity aroma. Taste is less intense and too easy to drink - not as big as expected for an imperial. A bit of caramel and rather dry. Not at all boozy. Medium and slick mouthfeel.

RocknSkol (15) - - MAY 17, 2016
Copper color with a long lasting off-white head. Piney-citrus aroma. Full-bodied and hoppy with a sweet malt background.

Luvystypotables (1522) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2016
An interesting g aroma of hops, fruit and citrus. Pours a clear gold color with moderate carbonation and a lasting white well laced head. Tastes of fruit, citrus and hops. Medium body dry mouth, bitter hops finish.

kyzr (1328) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Copper pour with average sized white head. Nose is big with pine and citrus. Flavor has a great pine hop punch with some notes of citrus. Has a little bitterness, but good malt balance.

Obfuscate (448) - Minneapolis, - MAR 13, 2016
For a Imperial IPA I don’t get any boozy ness. Malty and sweet. If you want a sweeter smoother double this is an good one.

KyotoLefty (8924) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2016
Bomber. Malty nose, pine, oranges, caramel. Glowing orange-amber color with a low, fine head. Sweet, slightly boozy flavor of oranges, biscuits, pine, something like orange sorbet. Nice fruitiness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4246) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2016
Hop Thermia 8.5% Bomber shared by KyotoLefty. A deep orange-coper pour with a light beige filmy head of foam. The aroma is very fruity hops with a bit of dankness and caramel. Very sweet pine and fruits while solid it doesn’t stand out in any way.

valpoaj (713) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Medium gold-amber pour with a billowing slightly-off white head - ample lacing left in its wake. Aroma is primarily resinous hops...some citrus notes mixed in there along with some spicy notes and something that’s odd, but I can’t put my finger on it. Generally good, but not all-in at this point. Flavor is very bitter...resinous, dank hops dominate...doesn’t have the malt backbone I was expecting. Some grapefruit hints, but again, not what I was expecting. Medium to heavy body for the style...this drinks like its ABV, if not more. Kind of ’meh’ on this one...far from ’bad’, but not quite good either!

rdb84 (518) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Draft at Grand Canyon park bar. Hazy orange, light carbo, small head. A: very light ipa and caramel malts aroma, some cola and lime. Ok but maybe too thin. T: medium bodied ipa, nice mellow exotic fruits, strong malt character (almost Speciale Belge), medium bitter development with bitter fruity aftertaste.
