Appearance was clear golden with lasting creamy huge 3 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are sweet 2-row, Vienna, crystal malts then the citrus and tropical hops come to play, no alcohol. Taste are sweet malt backbone upfront, then berry, tangerine, orange, melon and lemon. Alcohol comes in the backend. Palate was smooth creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then, lasting smooth well balanced finish. A wonderful DIPA, try it u wonít be disappointed.

A great brew. Bottle to tulip. Nose is huge grapefruit and tangerine with some resinous pine notes. Caramel and some sweetness. Flavor is similar. Very balanced sweetness amongst the big citrusy hop flavors. Very nice.

1 pt 6 fl oz bottle. Clear yellow amber colour, white fine foam head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of orange, grapefruit, resinous hop. Taste is malt caramel balanced against a citrusy hit of orange & grapefruit hoppy bitterness with resin, pine, vanilla, alcohol notes. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, warming dry lingering bitter finish. Very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, split a few ways. Poured a golden orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some notes of citrus and pine. Flavor was sweet malts. Flavor was a touch like an grapefruit and an orange moving through a pine forest. Nice citrus notes, bitter notes. Alcohol is there. This was pretty good.

Bomber from El Cerrito. Clear orange pour with a smaller foamy white head. Awesome citrus hop aroma - fresh and juicy. Rich citrus taste - tangerine. Big beer but very drinkable. Awesome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of citrus hops, much lighter than I expected but very inviting. Pours a crystal clear orange with a thin white head. Flavour is of light crystal malts a slight sweetness kept in check, maybe too much, by powerful bitter hops. A slight astringentness on the early finish, changing to a perfectly balanced mildly sweet and bitter long finish. Warms the gullet.

On draft at the Blind Tiger Ale House, NYC. I had three of these as my session beer of choice. A truly crafted IPA in every sense. Well described commercially by the brewer. Elevated ABV is unapparent in flavor.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Hazy amber with a thin head. Amazing aroma of orange/tangerine, with some light raisin. Starts sweet, with orange and grapefruit, and leads into a bitter finish. Full body with high carbonation. Great!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Lots of pine, some citrus. Notes of peach, maybe pineapple? Tropical fruit of some sort. Very hop-forward. Very good. Been looking for this for about two years, I finally found it at some place in Philadelphia that sells bottles and seems to be a bar as well. And the Eagles were losing the preseason game too. As a lifelong Giants fan, I hate the Eagles. That just makes this beer even better.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Portland shared by kevinsenn. Big tangerine aroma, like Christmas in the summer. Golden colour, more or less clear with good head. Sweeter than a typical IPA with a bitter finish. Canít tell if the light burn on the tongue is from alcohol or hops - probably a combination, but itís not unpleasant. Well done.
