I was really hoping the hops had held up while I waited for this to make back from my trip to Seattle. It definitely has and is definitely one of the best doubles I have had. Aroma is big orange and citrus. A little bit of sugar. Flavor is nicely balanced with sweetness caramel and orange candi sugar. A little bit of bubblegum. Finish is pleasantly bitter and relatively long with a good orange candy flavor. Nice balance and drink ability. Tasty

Bomber pours a very elegant amber with a thin white head. Flural aromas up front also lots of citrus and pine. Flavor is bitter citrus rind up front and very piney also a bit of malt smoothness and pepper. Body is medium withand some alcohol warmth and very astringent feel. Finish leaves a very bitter taste. Great ipa

A little expensive but a really delicious double IPA. Nice aroma, but mine was served a little too cold. There is a big malty body that helps cut the bitterness. Tons of hop bite at the end.

650ml boomer from High Spirit Liquors in Providence, Rhode Island. Pours a clear golden orange with a tall foamy head.. Some lace, but not very long lasting. Nice sweet citrus aroma. Flavours is citrus with zest bitter, pine, and very nice spicy sweetness. Full bodied, almost syrupy, nice lingering bitter. Alcohol - at 9.5% - not overpowering.

One of the best IPAs I’ve had. Strong piney aroma. Beautiful clear golden slight orange color. Taste of mild sweetness, little to no alcohol taste and a wonderful hoppy bitterness that I crave in my IPAs.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 Poured from bomber into a tulip. Pours a medium orange color with a nice, but small head.
Very hop based aromas of pine, resin, hops and a lot of citrus aromas as well. Big, but not overdone.
fuller bodied with a very good feel. Polished with a real smoothness to it along with flavors of resin, oranges, hops and some bits of pine flavors as well.
This is an extremely good DIPA. You don’t feel any of the alcohol and while it is a very hoppy beer, it isn’t in the way too much category either.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Smells of pineapple, orange peels, and some floral and grassy notes. Tastes of a thick acidic pineapple cocktail, with a medium to strong bitterness hiding below the surface. Fill bodied. High carbonation. Very rich, and very good.

Draft. Pours tastes of caramel, bread, spruce, alcohol, vanilla, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, has a nice taste starts out semi sweet with a huge hop finish. For as much hop that is in it its still balanced well that all of it works nice with the bitter fininish.
