Very complex hop, citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Crystal clear. Great lace head. Excellent carbonation. Flavor is unreal fantastic. More is better like the commercial. I want more

Heretic is doing some great stuff, Bottle from Bytemesis Thanks, this aroma has held up remarkably well, lots of grapefruit shining through. the taste is really well balanced, though I’m not sure it was the brewers intent based on description, still a really solid IIPA and at 8% it was easy to drink.

Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Massively hoppy aroma, smells like a freshly opened bag of hops. Some pine and resinous notes too, alongside sweet clean malt.
Very hoppy flavours too, but there’s a fair bit of clean malt to balance things. Very resinous, with spicy hops too. Pretty tasty stuff.
Spot on moderately high carbonation.

Tap. Clear golden orange color, excellent foam and lacing. Pleasant smelling floral character. Bitter flavor obviously, more citrus based. Surprised by this, much better than i expected.

Lots of malt and hops like you’d expect, but with a finish that was bitter and quite herbal or grassy.

Pours cloudy and gold out if the bomber. Strong and hoppy, with just enough malt to keep it from going too far. Despite the very strong hops, my taste buds still work, a definite plus.

22oz bomber. Pours a murky copper color with big head and nice lacing. Aroma is of big earthy hops with lots of mango, pine, grapefruit, pineapple and caramel malts. Taste is sticky, piney citrus hops with a solid malt backbone. Great DIPA!

Pours a Nice golden orange with a medium thick off white head. Aroma is more candied fruit and honey than a normal west coast style dipa, but still intriguing. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, and just a hint of caramel malt balance. Very good beer, but over priced at $9/·bomber

Bomber. Big citrus nose, with large shots of caramel. Hazy light orange/brown color. Grapefruit and bread dipped in honey / mid gets some balance, but hops are a bit extreme / finish has another layer of hops, with just a hint of the caramel. Medium-heavy body, with hops felt as a texture. Maybe light alcohol for an imperial, but it certainly tastes and feels like one. More or less a hop bomb. Pretty good.
