4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful reddish orange color with a thick pillowy head. Aroma is extremely pleasant. Starts with grapefruit bitter and citrus before going to a small but good malt note with a floral, resin-like hop finish with a bit of booze with all the notes perfectly in balance. Taste is not big but has a full body. Starts with a smooth malt grain note before opening into a citrus, grapefruit, pine and hop note which finishes to a very intense bitter floral finish. Overall extremely drinkable b/c none of the flavors are overly present but they are all bold and full-bodied. I would love to find this on tap somewhere to go with some spicy food

A pretty good citrusy beer. Has a solid aroma that is complimented by its taste, I’d have again.

12oz bottle. First off, wow. Second, I don’t like IPAs but this is not your average IPA. It’s bitter as a mofo but also kind of floral. Really good overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange color with a good sized head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a bunch of melon and citurs hops, but then also grassy hops in there as well.. like some fresh cut grass, it’s really nice. There is a touch of malty aroma, but it’s pretty hop forward all together.
The flavor has got a lot of hop flavor, mostly citrus hop flavor but it’s got some melon and fruit rind. It’s nudging towards the bitter end of Double IPA, and it’s a touch sweet, with some grassiness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber/brown body with off white foamy head, some lacing. Great citrus aroma, some pine. Taste is nicely balanced, bitter, hoppy, nutty warm booziness, the finish is a bit subtle. Lively palate. Only flaw is a bit hot and boozy. Overall a really great double IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Bottled 9.5 months ago. Not sure how DIPA’s age, but I guess we’ll find out! Pours a cloudy orange with lasting ring and OK lacing. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits and dank citrus in the background. I think the age has mellowed the citrus. Taste is malty, boozy, sweet caramel into an earthy booze and a barleywine vibe. Bitterness is complementary and balanced. We’ll see how much is natural and how much is age when I pop open the bomber that’s almost 4 years old. With more hop punch up front, this would be much better... so I’d like to try a fresh one sometime.
Update: 4 year old bomber is even maltier in the aroma, with a richer, more pungent tang and some floaties. Taste is thinner overall, though, and age is not on its side. It’s still decent, and I can imagine that with a fresher hop presence it would be really good.

Una double ipa assolutamente divina, che si lascia alle spalle dodici fatiche della mediocrità per aggiudicarsi un posto nell’olimpo dell’eccellenza birraia. Amaro deciso che si intreccia con la presenza dei malti, cullato da una sinfonia di note fruttate e una leggera sfumatura carammellata. Ottima, ottima, ottima.
