Hazy amber color, huge orange aroma with lesser notes of grapefruit and citrus as well as sweet malts. Medium to full bodied, lightly sticky, fairly sweet. Big orange flavor, doesn’t feel like an IIPA. ASA or BW that hides alcohol well.

Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours ruddy copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma is orange zest? Lots of malt too. Med + body. Flavor is sort of barleywine brown sugar with orange. And then some honey. This is really much more of a barleywine than a DIPA IMHO. Well done on the heat. Not a problem there. It’s a quite different drink - the adventuresome will be rewarded.

The aroma is strange, almost like a little bit of rotten egg? Little sweetness Very strange, appearance is butterscotch, bitter/sweet taste, good IBU. The alcohol can be tasted even well after the swallow. Something about that smell just doesn’t do it for me, very strange.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Inland Empire. Double IPA??? What the what. Pours a chill haze deeper red. Weaker head. Very odd medicinal nose with dried citrus, potpourri, and honey. Taste similar with big perfumed citrus, mint, honey. Some raspberry cough drops in the nose. Very sticky, medicinal. Strange, syrupy. Not a DIPA. Just very bizarre. Fiance’s rating: 2.1

My favorite beer from these guys. The heavy hitting malty, hoppy brew is probably one of my favorites period. The honey and orange mask the alcohol so well. Delicious!

Bomber poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Pours an almost cola like color with light barely coming through the edges. Aroma and taste is sugar, dark stone fruit, caramel. The hops barely come through on the end but there’s still an almost cloying sweetness at the end. Not bad, but a little heavy on the sweetness.
