BeerandBlues2 (11054) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22-oz. bottle. Pours lightly hazy rich copper with a huge, frothy and sticky off-white to light gold head, long retention (still over an inch after 5 minutes), and excellent lacing. The bubbles are tiny and slow-to-rise. Aroma is immediate fresh, fragrant fruity and floral hops, light notes of peppery alcohol, subdued caramel and honey malts, and an apricot essence near the end. The flavor starts out too heavy and hot on the alcohol, which is surprising for an 8% ABV beer. Heavy hop flavors of grass and flowers peek through the alcohol and there is a hint of sweet malt under it all. The alcohol really dries out the finish and leaves some hop bitterness behind. Medium body though the alcohol makes it seem thinner, heavy warmth, and medium carbonation. I had high hopes for this beer based on its appearance and aroma, but it really falls apart after that.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bomber from Capone’s and Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours clear dark caramel colored with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malty, with florals, piney hops. Tastes sticky, resiny hoppy, with notes of caramel, florals, and a very IBU-laden palate that stays very hoppy and resiny throughoiut. Needs a bit more malt balance.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012
i wonder if this was an old bottle as the hops were really subdued. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, moderate pine and grapefruit. The flavor was tangy caramel and nut with notes of grapefruit, pine and black tea. Medium length sour and tangy finish with lingering nut, caramel and hops. Medium body. Ok.

kramer (5501) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Tap, Hbg location. Pours a hazy copper body with a small tight bubbled off-white head. Nice citrusy hoppy nose with fairly restrained maltiness, letting the hops shine bright. The flavor shows an aggressive bitterness, citrusy with lots of grapefruit. Moderate lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with a little resiny stickiness and moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice beer, especially for ABC.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
22oz bottle from Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA. A slightly hazy amber with a billowing cream head; the aroma has pine and citrus hops aplenty; the taste is rather mellow with fruity hops and some carmael malts; then the hops slowly build to give a clean, crisp, bitter, finish; leaving a pleasing warmth in the stomach. Rather good.

ben4321 (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Norm’s, 3/22/12

Aroma: The nose has some floral hops, booze, a little bit pine and earth, and a touch of orange
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange-brown color with a small off-white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is mostly sweet and sticky, with quite a bit of booze, and a little bit of hop bitterness
Palate: It is medium bodied, the feel up-front it is a little sticky, later is gets drier and hot for an 8% beer
Overall Impression: I wasn’t really impressed with this one. Personally, I didn’t get nearly enough hops here. There wasn’t really any resin or citrus, and there was way too much heat for an 8% DIPA. I just couldn’t get over that weird, dry-hot finish. It didn’t go over well. Maybe if this was a 12% Barleywine I would have liked it better, but as a DIPA, It just didn’t really work...
