Big, bold, and British! O.G. 1080, 100 IBU’s, AbV 8.5%. She is amber/copper in color with a strong persistent head. An intense hop aroma is deliverd by copious amounts of English Styrian Gold and Kent Goldings hops. She is full bodied with a strong sweet malty toffee/caramel backbone that supports the 4.3 pounds of hops per barrel making her a very bitter, but delectible woman.

Pours a deep reddish/orange with a small head - low in carbonation. Strong hop aroma dominates the malts. First sip is bitter and hoppy. Not too bad as this is a worthy is DIPA.

Bottle from Ty5592. Thanks! Pours cloudy yellow amber color with small head of mixed bubbles. Aroma has some plastic phenolics. I can’t help but wonder if this is artifact of trading during hot weather, or this bottle having a little age. Some melanoidin malt aroma. Leans sweet hiding some of the IBUs. Mild smooth pleasant bitterness. Easy to drink. I think if I had this fresh, I would probably give it a 3.8, but this plastic phenolic is distracting me.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottled: Pours a slightly hazy orange copper with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and some piny resiny hops. Body starts with a good amount of residual crystal malty sweetness and some piny bittering and flavor hops before a semi-crisp, bittersweet finish. Not as hop forward as a lot of IIPAs, but still quite flavorful.

Bomber shared by csbosox, thanks Chris. Pours a hazy amber color with a thick and strong head. Aroma is caramel maltiness that dominates the hops underneath, which are relatively sweet fruit punch like. Taste is a combination of lightly sweet malts and light sweet hops and some bitterness underneath that. The malts are surprisingly clean despite the sweetness. Its a cool sweet hop brew.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bomber shared by csbosox. Pours a hazy dark orange with a thin skin of off-white head and spotty lace. The nose is sweet and malty with subtle fruity and earthy hops in support. Medium-bodied and slick with a bitter, lightly grainy mouthfeel at the swallow. Round, sweet malt with a fruity/earthy hop backing and a moderately bitter finish. This is a nice brew; not spectacular for the style, but nice. Thanks for sharing this with us, Chris.

Bomber from the brewpub. Caramel malts and subtle earthy hops in the aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malts, biscuit, and earthy hops. Very smooth bitterness.

Tap GTMW 2008 Scant notes, but bear with me: Nice, vivid nose of orange hops and caramel malts. Taste is orange hops, caramel, with a solid backbone and some more alcohol. Finishes with a nice bitterness.

Thanks Derek. An imperial pale, a British hopped up style. Cloudy with off-white bubbly, and lace. A bold malt aroma, and yeast. Unfiltered, as there is black sediment there. Average mouthfeel. Big on the hops.
