Really I think this is spot on. Perfect mouthfeel. Not very sweet but still sweet. LIght malt strong sweet strong hop. Golden and amazing. Light head. Strong california hop aroma and a balanced taste. High abv so be careful but enjoy

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the rye house NYC. Pours a bright copper color with no head. If a stereotypical overt hopped west coast beer needed and example this would be one of them. Good if you like the style but needs to be sipped

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber, couple of weeks old. Bright clear gold. Stunning juicy mango and tangerine aroma, light floral notes in there and just a hint of that big ABV. Taste gives mango, melon, tangerine and more pithy grapefruit. Some more perfumey notes get in there. Biscuit malt, impressively light presence letting hops sing. Booze well integrated, you can tell it's there but it isn't harsh. Pine needles come out towards the end, blending with the sweet tropical notes which linger. Amazing - my kind of hop forward beer.

On tap at BGH. Incredibly hoppy and fruity on the nose. Very smooth and full of smooth flavor. Good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of heavy citrus hops, candied oranges, caramel, and a touch of pine and herbal notes. It pours a transparent copper with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thick soapy ring. There is some thin soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with sweet citrus/orange and caramel. The finish has moderate pine, grapefruit, and some light toasty nights. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, it’s solid...but there’s too much caramel for my IIPA preferences.

Amazing aromas. Well Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic what else to expect. Crystal clear with white head. It starts with sweet alcohol hop flavor. Not enough hop to balance the big beer. Exceptional overall

Kicking back on a gorgeous fall afternoon, and this is the perfect beer for it. Big and bold in all categories, rich and powerful. Tasty, smooth with a kick. Pleasant alcohol burn from start to finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Date on bottle reads 08/11/14. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, dot or two of lace. Medium to bigger body. Feels lighter than 11%. Lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Moderate sweet taste, some bigger bready malty caramel character, but great big amarillo hop to back it up, too. Piney, kind of spicy, mild citrus (orange peel), moderate bitter, less bitter than you’d expect. Alcohol hides very well, way too easy drinking, good sweet malt balance helps with that I think.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured copper color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast hop and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a standout beer.
