COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

Nice bready smell that starts this brew off followed by a delisous citrus rind pine resin flavor. Med body with light carbonation. Rind flavor lingers long enough to enjoy it but not annoy you. Nice bold hop flavor tickles my palate Just right. Nice job!

Bomber. Pours a hazy orange with a gorgeous head and lacing. Aroma strong of citrus and pine. Taste very elk balanced for an imperial IPA. Solid! ----Hophaze out

deyholla (9269) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is grass and earthy pine forward with a bread backbone. Flavor has bread and grass with a strong earthy pine note growing through the finish.

Bomber from the grocery store. Hazy orange pour with a collapsing white head. Aroma is citrusy, earthy, piney, light floral. Taste is highly bitter with light malt sweetness; piney, citrusy flavors. Not bad.

This is a good IPA which is not my thing but its good. I got a pint with a free pint glass and a sticker for $3 bucks at Oysters and Ale in Jacksonville so score.

mariuspoenari (428) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Lighter in colour and lighter in body than most DIPAs. Very nice hop profile, with citrus and pine notes both in the nose, as well as in the mouth, just as it’s advertised. The malt body does cut a bit of the bitterness, but doesn’t overwhelm, as it sometimes happens in other beers of this style. A bitter/salty refreshing aftertaste. Surprisingly drinkable, for its ABV, though it will get to your head easily.

jake65 (3125) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Bomber. Golden color, big fluffy white head. Tons of sticky lacing. Citrus and piney aroma, some maltiness. Huge hop flavor; slightly sweet and moderately bitter. Citrus, pine... A little malty. Sturdy.
