Wow, this thing is pretty over-the-top! Lots of pine and spruce in your face! There may be some turpentine in there too! This is a high-octane hop fest! I like it! Just on the verge of the ABV becoming unmanageable.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 Bottles 3/24/14 Hazy golden orange pour thin creamy soapy white head with light sticky lacing .... Aroma of piney and grapefruity hops with a caramel malt and rindy grapefruit ... Taste is of piney, grapefruity hops and a bit boozy with caramel malts, very bitter and high on the Ibus .... Has a lingering bitter piney bite and rindy bitter goodness .... Solid stuff .... 8/20/15 fresher than the first time I had it last year .... Rindy and more pine in the mouthfeel and the ibuís are much more intense .... Finish is one long lingering bitter dry hopped bite

22oz bomber shared by Dan P. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, sweet citrus and tropical fruit. Nose is super fruity. Taste mimics the nose. Really citrusy and tropical. Not boozy at all. Really solid!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. I donít see any possible way a beer that is 11.3% (as per the bottle) with Simcoe and Citra could be bad. Just thought I should get that out of the way. Pours a light orangish gold with a decent head and aromas of ABV, fruit and resin. The nose was much more available at the onset, but it seems to burn off as this one airs or something. Flavor is boozy and hoppy. Darn nice. Lots of ABV warmth on the back end and a nicely balanced huge beer.

bomber shared poured a darkish orange color with white head. the aroma of malt and hops nicely balanced on the nose. the flavor has a medium malt backbone and solid hop nose...for a triple its not overly bitter and the alcohol is very well hidden and I believe the ibuís was like 132 or something like that...I think once over a 100 its all speculative but this was an impressive beer. well done.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very light yellowish gold, extremely clear with a light cap of off white head. Aroma is quite floral, lemony hops. Taste is vibrantly hoppy, wonderfully fresh. Extremely layered hop notes of lemon, citrus, resinous. Malt punches through the hop assault near the finish. Beautiful beer and the alcohol, though slightly warming, is not overwhelming and well integrated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, from the Best Damn Beer Shop, 03/05/14.
Almost clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show.
Nose is bitter hops, pine, caramel malt, orange pith, tangerine.
Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter hops, grapefruit, dank tones, pine bite, boozey punch, light perfumed notes.
Fullish body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close laced with booze.
Ok DIPA but not to draw, just a little overly boozey, the 11% is pretty evident.
