3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy copper orange color with a frothy lacing head that sticks around for a good length of the beer. The nose is hop heavy citrus with sweet caramel notes holding their own. The palate is big juicy and hop forward but the malt sweetness keeps the bitterness in check. Big grapefruit, tangerine and peach flavors lead into a round sweet caramel mid palate that slowly fades into the bitter sappy pine abyss that lingers on and on....

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Five characters is all that’s needed to describe this one RateBeer. If I must say more, extreme IIPA. I love it, and may have incurred some minor injuries from partaking of it. Über dank and resinous from the super sticky lacing to the five minutes of aftertaste. The name is more of a warning than a catchy title.
Enjoyed this on 4pk release in 2012.

Bomber pours a golden amber with thick frothy off white head. Aroma of citrus an floral hops. Taste loads of citrus an pine hops with a nice sweet malty backbone. Not quite as hoppy as the name suggest but a good IPA. Nice carbonation good lacing. Very enjoyable

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Clear golden orange with a thick, dense, white head and some lacing. Big aroma of caramel, pine, citrus, floral and alcohol. Flavor is lots of bitter hops with a slightly sweet caramel malt and light alcohol bite in the finish. Medium body with a dry mouth feel. Really good IIPA/American barley wine, lives up to the name though.

Each time I say this is the hoppiest beer I’ll ever have, I am proved wrong. So here it goes again. Resinous pine sap aroma, wrecks the nose well ahead of the palate. Deep clear orange, looks innocent enough. Extreme bitterness...not even specifically hop accented, just a bitter solo over a malty baseline. That malt element makes the beer fairly smooth, in spite of the big bite up front and even bigger one on finish. Up there with the best double IPAs, although not quite as stupid as expected.

On tap pours copper color with little head. Smells of ganja, toffee, and slight pine needles. Tastes so amazingly complex and hoppy on many dimensions.It is resinous and sticks to my mouth like a hooker to her pimp. Grassy and piny hop flavors that are showcased on top of firm malty presence.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden brown on tap with pillowy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of hops, piney, citrus, slightly earthy. Taste is hops, hops, slight caramel malt, and more hops. Awesome DIPA if you’re a hop lover.

On tap. Clear orange-amber with a lasting creamy film. Luscious nose is a mix of grapefruit, caramel and evergreen resin. Taste is resin, beeswax, grapefruit, toasted rye bread, and just enough malt sweetness to sustain all the hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body is smooth with medium carbonation, and dangerously drinkable with no trace of the abv.
