Bomber from Lakes Deli in Santee. Pours a surprisingly light hue, definitely on the bright side of yellow gold. Aromas are lovely of citrus hops with just a touch of pine. Taste is bright and crisp considering the amount of pale malt it takes to hit this ABV. Hops kick back in fruitily on the finish. As others have commented, this is a real easy drinker for the ABV and style.

Clear gold pour, white head that lasts a while. Aromas of cities fruit, nice dose of pine in there as well. Taste is bitter hit up front, sweet malt then finishes with a lingering bitterness coupled with residual sugar. Pretty damn good.

Poured from a bomber into tulip glass, cloudy golden - orange with a medium sized head. Nose is very complex, smoky malty citrus, blood orange, with a hint of pine. Taste leans toward the sweeter side, but there is a real dryness to the finish that grabs me. Overall very good.

Citrus, resinous, spicy aroma. A little soapy at first. Similar hop flavor (not soapy), with a light sweet, bready mouthfeel. Substantial but smooth bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Encinitas ale house... Hazy slightly transparent golden brown pour and topped with a creamy white head...slightly metallic upfront with sweet citrus honey middle... Semi-sweet herbal citra notes, sweeter through the middle and finishes off with an earthy bitterness. Medium bodied or just above that. Sweetness overbearing. Doesn’t seem all that fresh.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass a cloudy amber yellow color with a thick beige head.
Aroma of citrus & pine with a sweet malty overtone.
Flavor of Amarillo hops is foremost. Thinking sweet pinecones. The balance with the malts brings sweetness to the table with a finish of bitterness that is almost perfect.
Overall this is an incredible DIPA.
