Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fredís the man! Pours copper with a creamy/foamy/bubbly light beige head. Hop aroma is dank! Itís not harsh. Itís just very heavy duty. Floral and citrus, probably. Full bodied. Itís got a lot of light roast malt. Itís almost suggesting barley wine. But there is a load of citrus, floral and resin hop. Curl around this and take a nap. Succulent. Finishes both dry and sweet. Taste is just wonderful. Makes my salivary glands ache with pleasure.

mcberko (13952) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldnít want a pint of this. Decent.
