12 oz bottle courtesy of Snojerk321, poured into a tulip. Pours a deep amber/caramel brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is initially of piney resinous hops, pineapple, and grapefruit. As the beer warms, more of the sweet caramel malt comes to the front. Taste is bitter, with a lot of deep rich caramel sweetness - the balance is more in favor of sweet than bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation. Very nice IPA, but a little sweet and rich for me, I tend to like my IPA’s a bit more crisp and hop-forward.

Bottled, definitely a little bit old. However this was quite good, if it tastes this good when its old I would like to try this one fresh. It has a nice aroma, very citrusy, definitely the noticeable hop is the cascade, it is quite a nice mix of the hops and malt. Recommend a taste of this one

22 oz Bomber. Pours out an orange / yellow color. Fruity smelling with floral notes. Taste is sweet and smooth. Bitterness is there, but not overwhelming. Has some interesting tastes that I cant really pinpoint, but it makes it unique, which isnt a bad thing in this case. Decent, drinkable beer.

Great imperial. Super fresh. Bitter green hops. Mouth buzzer. Doesn’t have the sweetness I like. Slight soapy aftertaste.

CampesinoTino (770) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Bomber. Burnt orange colored in appearance with a half-inch of white head. The aroma is predominantly hops resin and caramel with a little bit of candied oranges in the background. The taste begins with strong earthy, herbal hops bitterness and grapefruit citrus flavors followed by toasted malt, tangerine and caramel. The finish is bitter and citrusy while the alcohol is fairly subtle. This is one seriously bitter and hoppy brew that more than delivers in the hops department. Another solid San Diego style DIPA.

Another brew from wavers1 in the free beer contest. The aroma is slightly metallic like hard water or briny like the ocean. Nice hoppy flavor. Nicely balanced tasty west coast IPA.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Aroma is sweet candy malts, similar to a barley wine. Some dirt, earth, and piney hops are there as well. The flavor is the same. Very sweet malt in the forefront followed by a slight astringency and some piney hops.
