Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
In short: A IIPA with dried fruits and white sugar sweetness. Rather ordinary
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed probably fresh, tasting session with Montreal losers
The look: Cloudy orange topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is fruity and sweet which conveys a strong dried fruits sensation. Taste is grainy crackery malts, quite sweet with a refined white sugar sensation, dried orange cubes and other dried fruits. Medium bitterness. Lack of freshness sensation and I pretty sure the bottle was fresh. I see that this beer is getting mostly positive ratings but I didn’t like it much, so maybe I’m wrong and everybody else is right… but I cannot be sure, even my inferiority complex is not good enough.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Bomber from the little liquor store near 285 & Arizona in Buena Vista, CO. Hazy orange blossom honey color with a moderate, slightly sticky white head. Aroma is peach, lightly floral, and a slight touch of pine. Flavor is a bit less subtle, with a shot of oaken booze, loads of bitterness from piney hop resin, and a twist of sweet caramel just before a thin, faded finish. Body is too watery and the finish lacks character, otherwise this one would be a home run like their regular IPA!

rader58 (782) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Picked up a bottle while driving through Salida. Pours a hazy honey color with hints of golden yellow. Aroma of pine, citrus and floral hops with a slightly sweet molasses. Flavor is citrus and pine with a nicely balanced sweetness of molasses. The bitterness of the hops is very much forward, but the sweetness is subtle and quite welcome. A dry, bitter pine hops finish. Very nice! Wish I had more...lots more!

mensch (256) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Carmel colored, lacey cream head. Wonderfully rich aroma, piney first, then resins and a little onion?! Mouthfilling bitterness predominates, but still plenty of juicy malt with toasted carmel -- a hint of old ale. Finishes with dry and lasting bitters. Tasty and complex.

Just an average double ipa. Straight forward bitterness without a lot of complexity

Beaver (1311) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium frothy white head that goes to a film that laces the glass.

The aroma is piney, resinous hops with a little melon and grapefruit.

The flavor is a little biscuity caramel malts with a huge resinous pine hop bitterness with a touch of melon. The bitterness is sticky and lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of watery.

Overall, other than the mouthfeel, this is a very good DIPA. It’s a bit of a one-dimensional hop bomb but there’s good piney/resiny flavor with the bitterness. I’d like to see a little more fruitiness. But this is good!

Bomber poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of pine, orange, apricot, vanilla, melon and light tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a lightly dry finish. Flavors of carmel, pine, orange, apricot and light tropical fruit with a smooth dry lingerin g bitter finish.

22 oz bottle. This was bottled within the last few days. Pours a thick beige lasting head, with attractive lacing, over a clear dark golden body (SRM 10-15)......nose is a blast of hops, piney resin, citrus (grapefruit), floral.....tastes of very slight early sweetness and then balancing grapefruit, pine bitterness flow in.....mouth feel is medium, carbonation low. Very cleansing on the palate, dry throughout, not super bitter, hop is constrained compared to many, and very well balanced. I’d like to taste the against Pliney the Elder.
