Another bomber courtesy of Rob G (from his father-in-law); split four ways; no bottle date to be found, but I cant help but think that this is old. Aroma: Old school brewpub butterscotch malt heaviness with some citrus and a perceptibly strong, almost acetone-like bitterness. Appearance: Hazy, dishwater caramel color with lively carbonation holding up a thin tan cap. Flavor: Butterscotch bomb up front with some citrus for a moment, which is quickly swallowed up by harsh bitterness, bitterness, bitterness over the top blunt force bitterness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, bitter x4 finish. Overall: Without question the worst DIPA Ive had in my life.

Poured from the bomber, orange, amber, with a brown tornado in the middle, nice lacing, smells malty. Taste is sweet, gritty, boozy, grapefruit, and dry at the end. Im a bit disappointed by the low ratings but this site is full of followers, and Im partial cuz Im sort of a snake.

We tried this one blind and were stunned to see it rated 54 after tasting it and looking it up here. Cloudy copper color, aroma of mild pine hops. Taste is sweet malt, soapy, a nice peppery hops bite, though not too much, ABV taste and burn just a tad. Not bad at all. Wed call this a low-90s or high 80s. Worth a try if you like trying new stuff, especially local.

22oz Bottled December 2014. sweeter malt, hops seemed overly stale for only being a month old. just a below average ipa.

HonkeyBra (4034) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours a amber orangish color with a minimal amount of bubbles on top. Aroma of mild sweet malt and some herbal hops. Flavor is dogfood malt, sweetness, mild bitterness. Off putting. Medium bodied with boozy finish. Nah.

Bottle. Lactic orange and orange peel aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet orange/peach malt and moderately bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Nice balance.

Patrickctenchi (5952) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bomber: Slight;y cloudy, orange, with a small, off-white head. Orange, caramel scent. Taste is bitter peel, caramel malt. A touch of earthy spice,........increasing levels of alcohol bitterness. Very good.

BVery (9515) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. Rich orange pour - mostly clear. Citrus, butterscotch, and it comes off fairly boozy. Not bad.

tmoreau (3631) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, displaying a fairly clear, copper color, with a modest layer of off white head foam that diminished quickly to a thin ring & film, and left some spotty lacing. The nose was butterscotch, malt, a touch of sweetness, and more as ripened stone fruit than citrus. Medium bodied, okay carbonation, with a little soapiness, but somewhat redeemed by adequate strength to the herbaceous, earthy, and lingering hop bitterness. Not DIPA quality at this point, but the bottle was probably aged, and badly handled.

Tasted from a bomber at Lemon Tree in Chesterton IN. It poured a cloudy orangish hue with an off white head and streaky lacing. Hop and citrus aroma with a taste to match. Very refreshing for a double IPA. A great complement to Mediterranean food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
