Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle brought from CA by my neighbor. When it was too cold, it was really unpleasant, but as it warmed the orange/citrus came through better. Hoppy but not over the top and doesn’t rise above the other Imperial IPAs I’ve had lately. Bottle.

daleharshman (932) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bomber purchased at Bine & Vine ($7.49). Pours a slightly hazy red / dark amber color with two fingers of off-white foam. Aroma does not exactly jump out but there are notes of pine, honey, and a bit of citrus. Flavor of smooth caramel with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and herbs. The sweetness trumps the bitterness here. The high ABV is quite well hidden here. A very malt-forward and not very complex DIPA, but I still find this highly quaffable. (24, 734)

Bomber poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, lemon zest, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooith. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange and light earthiness with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 The more you drink this the more you love it. Well hidden alcohol. 5.69 @ Grocery Outlet. This hits on all cylinders. Packed with flavors. Toasted sunflower shell, hops, bitterness and body are very enjoyable blending together in unison. Don’t pass it up! Rerate: I had tis again at the same price! This beer is frickin’ unbelieveable! I may be my DNA beer match! Dry toasty sweet hops! Brilliant. Bad Ass Beer!!!!!
