TimE (4120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2015
Light amber color. White head with quick dissipating head. Big sweet malty nose with lots of tangerines which works well with the sweet maltiness. The mouth is very big with lots of maltiness, but alcohol is relatively well hidden. Stone fruits. Well integrated, but probably could be better with slightly less alcohol. Big tangerine and citrus finish. Yummy stuff.

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from City Beer Store, SF. Clear golden, solid offwhite head. Orange zest, grapefruit, herbal hop aroma. Also some spiciness in the mouth. Very bitter, but with a solid malty backbone. A good one.

blklab2007 (2092) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle poured an orange amber color with a thin coating of off white head. Aroma has big hop punch, citrus, sweet tropical goodness, sweet malted core, with light alcohol. Mouth feel is medium with good coating and average carbonation. Flavor has a crushing dose of hops, citrus, tropical, not overly bitter, and a big malted core punching out some heat.

BuckeyeBoy (3611) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2015
22oz bottle thanks to Adam. Pours out a orangeish golden topped with a white head. Nose is tropical fruit citrus hops and a nice caramel sweetness. Taste is tons of hops 3x from a normal ipa. More of the tropical fruit citrus big grapefruit pithy bitterness and heavy malt bill. I liked this one.

beeratarian (166) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pour is orange to light brown, can’t see through haze, with a thin off white head. Aroma is caramel, pine, tropical fruit. Flavor is much the same. Nice pine and dank hops get quickly overpowered by malt and caramel. Drinks and pours more like a hoppy barleywine. Finish is bitter and lasting after the caramel fades. Very big and barley-like. Maybe fresh off tap would be a better dipa. Still worth trying if you like the big stuff!

Bomber from waterboy, thanks Ric! Shared with ck1 on Spit Cup weekend. Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is hoppy sweet with caramel and pineapple. Taste is citrusy, with grapefruit and pineapple. Solid underneath with caramelly malt. Some alcohol presence too. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes citrusy bittersweet. Solid one. 14.3
