Purchased chilled bomber from liquor store. Big hop aroma, super fresh floral and citrus. Wonderful mouthfeel and flavorful malt, I was deceived by the aroma thinking this was going to be another one of those huge hop-bombs that I love so much. It was not! It had a rich malty character, nicely balanced by a complex, bitter hop profile, slightly sweet and crisp without a hint of alcohol (the label states 9%). It is refreshing to taste a DIPA moving towards a flavorful malty backbone that is not totally overpowered by hops. Very impressive beer.

Smell is deep and full with signs of citrus. Taste is extremely well rounded while still full of hops. Superb! Hops of all colors. They say big malt balanced and i would agree. With how well it is balanced i would say they could have made the hops more piercing but only a smidgen and this is my only hesitation for saying this is a perfect beer. I look for strong hops but well rounded in an ipa and this is spot on! Bravo

22 ounce bomber for $7.49 at North Park in Westminster. "Seven Seas" title is gone, but rest of label looks the same. The ingredients and alcohol level match, so I will assume this is the same beer.
I popped the cap with the bottle at about 50 degrees. It poured a translucent honey hue with a dense white head which was slow to dissipate. The nose was enticing. Taste revealed one of the best balanced IPAs I have tried. Chewy on the palate and with a lingering bitter finish. The 9 percent alcohol is well hidden. This beer is excellent!

Very nice with a full hop experience. Pine resin aroma, some grapefruit and lemon and some grass. The flavor is almost entirely citrus, esp. grapefruit. Lacks a bit of balance that could have been provided by more caramel.

Rich gold pour with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grass, unripe stone fruit, tropical fruit. Flavors are nice a hoppy with a sweet tropical note. Great beer!

Pours a hazy straw with little head. Great aroma: earthy, dank, citrus qualities combine to form a beautiful tropical fruit aroma. Perfectly balanced and you would never guess that this is a 9% beer. Dry, crisp finish with no lingering bitter or cloyingly sweet notes that often accompany double IPAs. This one’s a keeper.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2011 On tap @ the brewery’s taproom. Hazyish orange with a foamy white head. Long lasting head with tons of lacing. Aroma packs a hoppy punch. Floral and grassy hops dominate the nose behind some slight funk aroma. Taste was awesome! Generously hopped yet balanced with a pretty sweet malt body. Very full bodied array of hop profiles, but refrains from being resinous or too bitter. Very nice! A strong reccomendation.
