Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a minimal ivory head. Aromas of citrus, pine, light carmel and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and dry. Flavors of grapefruit rind, earthiness, pine and light carmel with a dry lingering bitter finish.

Had this on tap at mad mex. I knew they didnt make much and was kind of suprised to find it. The aroma seemed to be pretty balanced and had some some citrusyness to it and a lot of caramel and bready notes. Overall the aroma seemed a little lacking. The flavor was okay but not nearly hoppy enough and I was getting some off flavors that probably shouldnt have been there.

Bottle. Light gold and crystal clear. A modest white head that laces well down the glass. Not much aroma, perhaps some hops. Medium body, with a floral and resin flavor that starts out refreshing and ends a bit sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Pours dark gold with thin white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Hides most of the 10% behind some serious citrus and pine notes. Quickly sweetened by malt. Pretty good kick in the mouth. Nice Double.

Lowe1983 (1385) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some caramel, some slight grassy tones, and a little alcohol. Flavor starts off with the citrus and pine hops that give way to the sweeter malts. Decent but has a slight strange after taste. Overall not too bad.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Poured an effervescent golden with a large frothy white head. Strong and nice aroma of pine hops, some fresh cut grass, and some bitter grapefruit. Taste is strong pine and bitter grapefruit with some biscuity malt leading to a very dry and bitter pine finish. Body feels a tad soft. The beer is dry, but I canít really taste the alcohol. Surprised to find out itís 10%. Although not the richest IIPA Iíve had, and not balanced with sweet malts like in my absolute favorite IIPAís, this has some great crisp hop flavor that makes me happy to be a hophead.

23-Feb-07 Bomber Dark golden color, unclouded, with long lasting white head of soapy foam. Tropical aromas plus some nice pithy citrus (grapefruit) and very simple, mild shortbread-like malt backbone. The flavor is in keeping with aroma with much grapefruit and still very subdued malts. Mouthfeel is resinous, pithy, and sharp ending with a lasting grapefruit character. Pretty enjoyable stuff, if somewhat generic by todayís standards, this might have really blown me away just a few years ago.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Shiny, clear gold body with gentle carbonation and a sudsy white head. Aroma has strong mango notes plus orange and honeydew with a light pale malt backing. Substantial bitterness, which is coarse and assertive and a relatively dry sensation in the finish despite the fruity hop character. Drying, alcoholic mouthfeel. Reminds me of Hop Wallop, at least in terms of balance. A good DIPA, but late on the bandwagon to make a lasting personal impression.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours a translucent golden color with a huge white head that never goes away. When you drink the liquid and the head finally drops it leaves THICK, soapy lace on the side of the glass the whole way down. Quite impressive really. Smells of strong hops. Sweet, citrusy, grassy hops and a lot of it. Taste is hoppy as well but there is not much balance or complexity unfortunately. Still is good tasting just not the best IIPA out there.

22 oz bomber. Pours a clear golden color with an enormous white head and a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of faint floral hops and pine resin. Taste is much the same as the aroma, floral and piney hops. Very good overall. Alcohol is well hidden.
