4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz. bomber dated 6/4/13. Pours deep amber with a thick, off-white, two-finger head that dissipates to a nice foam cap. Great lacing. Pure hop aroma - pine resin and grapefruit rind. Bitter up front, as one would expect from a beef billed as a triple IPA. Nicely balance, however, not bitter for bitters sake like too many west-coast Imperial IPAs. Bitter on the back end as well, finishes slightly dry with a little heat from the 11.5 ABV. A full bodied, slick mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well crafted triple IPA.

A booze bomb trying to disguise itself with hops. Lots of citrus. Golden pour without much head or lacing. High booze in aftertaste. A little overrated due to imbalance. Tap at blind tiger.

Ganska mild doft men tydlig sådan av tall barr. Smaken fruktig , druvor , torr åh tydligt tall barr. Fin öl som säkert gjort sig bättre i riktiga IPA glas. Hotell rummet hade bara vanliga jävla glas. Hmmm

On tap at the Ginger Man, New York. Pours orange to amber with lasting medium white head. Lots of hops, fruit and pine in aroma. Sweet flavor, pine, bit spicy, fruit. Lasting fruit bitter finish. Alcohol is bit warming, but well hidden. Really great one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Dennoman. Bomber sampled @ RBBWG IV. Golden, almost clear. Nose is sweet onion hops, oily hops, lightly funky hop juice. Taste is onion & garlic hops, hay, light barnyard hops, almost pure hop oil. Oily hop juice body. Not really to my style but interesting & fun. I can really see hop-heads going crazy over this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BA gathering hosted by Dave. Pours out a nice amber color with a small head. Aroma is of juicy citrus hops, pine, light acidic/bitter hops, mild alcohol and some sweet bread crust. Taste is complex, ABV is slightly more apparent on the taste, pine, citrus, juicy tropical fruit, resin, evergreen, mild grass, some grains and some hot alcohol in there, but it doesn’t take away. Nice Beer!
