UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a mostly clear copper color. The aroma has a strong citrus, floral, & resin scent to it. The taste is medium body & has a good bitter finish. Overall a very very good IPA.

650ml bottle from Valhallaís Goat. Hazy amber brown, reasonable head. Mild sweet hop aroma. Big spicy grain hop flavour, smooth with sweet aftertaste. Would prefer it to be not so strong but not bad.

Kind of an orange color, somewhat hazy, nice slightly orange head settled into a quarter inch cap and left nice lace.
Definitely pungent in both aroma and flavor, piney, hop resin, some grassy and floral notes, with a solid malty backbone.
Body is medium with medium carbonation, with a lingering pine resin and malt note.
Overall itís interesting, quite a malt-bomb of an IPA, but I did enjoy it. Iíd be interested in trying more from this brewery.

Draft at Falling Rock Tap House, served in a pint glass. Pours a mostly clear orange color with a finger of off-white head. Lots of caramel and toasty malts balance some piney, citrusy, resinous hop notes. A bit of spice, too. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Solid IPA.

Bottle @ home while watching the Athletics World Championships. Clear medium to dark orange color, medium sized white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is heavy malty, hoppy, lots of pine, resin and spruce. Taste heavy malts, lots of pine and resin, some hops, medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body and carbonation. Nice beer without a doubt, but I miss fruityness of grapefruit or tropical fruits. The bitterness is there but Iíd like it to be a bit more fruity.

Bomber at home. How is this not classified as an imperial IPA? Burnt orange color, good lacing, rocky head--beautiful beer. Nice strong aroma, simple and to the point. Bitter sitter. I mean itís good, but the aftertaste is a little strong compared to the rest of the profile, and it doesnít offer much in the way of floral or herbal tastes, in my opinion, itís just sharp. Itís clean, though. There isnít much here that sets it apart from the crowd, it doesnít justify the hefty price tag.
