Bomber served in a tulip. Near clear dark orange-amber in color with a large beige head. Good retention and the lacing is quite resiny and sticky. Malty sweet aroma of caramel, toffee, and rye, along with orange citrus and light grassy hops. There’s also a touch of heat. Medium-full body, very sweet creamy palate, and a big, balanced, sticky finale. It may be the case that this particular bottle is past its peak as the malts seem to dominate the hops. Very good in any case. This is a rich, full-bodied beast.

22 oz. bottle, pours hazy orangey amber with a big white head. Aroma of rye, citrus hops, caramel malts, and a fruity character. Flavour of strong rye, bitter hops, and fruity characteristics. Unique, exquisitely flavoured.

Ahhhh, I haven’t had this gem since...well, since working for the Dictatorship that is Bottleworks/Brouwers a few years back. Regardless...Dicks has created quite the product for these guys. Little known fact...it’s a Double Rye IPA! Lots of fruit on the malts up from, which morphs into an almost barleywine style flavor within the body with the rye malt addition. Fairly sweet, plummy, and hopped rye on the end, this is definitely a good brew. Finding it outside of Bottleworks however can get tricky. Try Corner’s Deli on 85th and 8th if you’re in the hood. GREAT beer for a corner store, promise.

Aroma is bread, fruity, citrus, peach. The appearance is a relatively clear amber red, white head. The flavor is bread, caramel, fruit. The mouthfeekl is thick and oily. The finish is piney and resiny hops. I wasn’t expecting this to rise to the level of greatness, but it has.

Bomber thanks to Arbitrator. Pours mostly clear penny-copper in color with a two-finger foamy white head that fades to a thick foam layer. Smells like old resinous hops, sweet malts, and green apple. The flavor is sweet and malty. Pale and caramel. The hop profile is fairly muted, mainly orange and resin. Decent palate - medium body with medium-high carbonation. A pretty average IPA, possibly a little past prime, but not bad if you consider it a barleywine.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Hoppy citrus nose slight resin and some alcohol. Smells stronger than bottle indicates. Beautiful amber-orange color, hazy with some sediment. Off-white substantial head that leaves nice lacing on glass. Up front hop bitterness with just enough malt sweetness to balance. Grapefruit on back end. Medium mouthfeel with some alcohol warmth. A solid IIPA that I would definitely revisit. Not as rounded as some of the standouts available but still a tasty treat.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle I picked up from Bottleworks while on vacation September 2009. Dark amber pour, plenty of carbonation, and a stale hops aroma. Flavor was also slightly stale hops, some orange citrus and well balanced for being 8.5%. Decent.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 3, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Solid hop nose. Pours a rich Amber. Well balanced with solid piny hops. Mild bitter finish.Not quite imperial,but not a bad beer at all.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2010
[Bottle] shared by DalzAle. Pours a cloudy amber with a small beige head. Aroma is hoppy - grapefruit and orange being most prominent. There is also a bit of caramel malt presence as well. Flavor is quite bitter, nice forward maltiness, brown sugar and raisin, and a faded hoppiness. This was a nicely aged IPA - the malt backbone is strong enough to carry this beer through the couple years it has been aged.
