SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared a golden liquid with a slight bit of sediment haze while a foamy layer of head eventually broke down. Aroma is all hops along with a fruity smell that reminds me of the produce section of a grocery store or walking into a fruteria. The flavor is strong dosage of bitter hops that arenít as overpowering as most other Imperial IPAís aim for but instead has a moderate of citrus and pine like hops that have been rounded out perfectly with the malt, water and yeast used. Although this is not my favorite double IPA, I will have to admit that Hopocalypse is one of the smoothest drinking impy IPAís Iíve tasted considering their high IBUíS and ABV.

Bomber shared at Berliner bash, poured a golden color with aromas of light hops, caramel, pine and some malt. Flavors are pine resin, light caramel, light bitter aftertaste, a solid beer overall.

illidurit (2258) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bomber poured into pint glass. Aroma and flavor both exude piney green hoppiness with a firm caramel malt background. This is well balanced with no off flavors but Iím just bored of this hop and malt combo.

JaBier (5912) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a medium off-white head. Nose is big orange right away, along with malt, grapefruit and pine. Malty flavor with some pine before an earthy finish. Very nice.

Wonderful strong hop aroma. Intense hops that I havenít found typical of DIPAs. Mouth feel was perfect.

maxwelldeux (4219) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose was one of the more interesting DIPAs Iíve had - pineapple notes to it and seems light. Nice and a great drink.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours amber with a big creamy sandy head. The aroma is juicy and delicious bringing big oily resiny hops, not overly sweet though by any means, and some refreshing citrus. The flavor and body are humongous bringing huge zesty sweet hop notes almost overbearing on my palate personally.

Strykzone (5899) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This poured clear copper and sported a decent beige head. A nice pine caramel aroma. The flavor brings out some truly complex hops. I tasted rye grain first but then pine and citrus. Other hop flavors were tasted but not really identified. There is also all kinds of sweetness but it is almost buried under the hops. Some biscuit and caramel. Bitterness began moderate but grew toward the finish. This brewer spared no hops in making this beer.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Pours a clear amber orange with a large beige head and light lacing.Nose is huge hops with a cat pee aroma. Medium body with a lot of resin. Flavor is grapefruit and pine with a perfect caramel backbone. The finish is very bitter. This is a really well balanced DIPA. Lot to like here. My kind of beer.
