bomber into a wine glass Clear caramel amber color. Good half finger of white head. Sticky and leaves nice lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Very dank and bitter nose. Good caramel nose. Taste is very bitter, dank and pungent. Pine, grapefruit, orange and a lot of peel to go along with that. Oily, yet dry. Big and bold. Highly bitter and aggressive but quite nice.

Masterkush7 (494) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bomber bottle. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is a deep amber with a nice foamy head. The taste starts out a different type of hop then rolls into a nice hop flavor. Palate is bitter, but good for a double ipa. Overall, a good double. Well balanced

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
22oz bottle from Cask n’Flask, San Jose. Deep bronze crowned with a huge, heavily cratered cream foam. Floral, mandarin, blackcurrant, lychee, caramel and honey notes in a fragrant and hop-dominated aroma. Fine flavour with peppery, trifle-bottom booze and honeyed, husk-accented malt overpowered by aromatic tangerine and floral hops. Pine and soapy lavender. Not a sniff of the considerable ABV. Rounded and aromatic IPA.
