intense aroma of grapefruit and lime. appearance is a shockingly plain golden that defies the wildness inside. i could keep my nose jammed in the glass for a good long time. flavor almost stands up to the nose -- more citrus, the bitterness practically burns. there are lots of good IIPAs out there, but few can provide this kind of aroma -- and thats what pushes this into the upper echelon.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Pours hazy golden-orange with minimal head. Nice citrusy aroma with a bit of sweet fruitiness and slight caramel notes. Flavor is abundantly hoppy and resinous, with tons of pithy grapefruit, lemon, and orange notes. Nice dry finish. I havent been overly impressed with Lagunitas in the past, but this one is very good.

Aroma of citrus, peach, caramel, grapefruit. Background smell of earthy hops. The appearance is a orange color, true to the style, a little on the lighter gold side. The flavor is a hop explosion, mainly citrus hops, but also a solid malt backbone, caramel, fruits. The finish is a mix of fruity sweetness and citrus hops. Like a mix of peach and grapefruit. Thin/medium mouthfeel, a little oily. Excellent IIPA all around.

sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bomber picked up at the local bevmo. Pours a dark straw yellow with a solid 1 finger head. The aroma is of super fresh hops (reminded me of opening a bag of hops on brew day). Mouth feel is remarkably smooth and balanced for how hoppy it smelled. Tastes of citrus and smooth malts. The aftertaste has a pleasantly sweet kick to it. Damn good IPA.

Amazing bomber by Lagunitas! Has a 1 finger head but dissipates into a thin layer with great lacing. Color is a golden goodness with the flavor of pine, pineapple, and yet very bitter but on the other hand wonderfully sweet. An amazing DIPA! My second to of course to 3Fs Dreadnaught.

Bomber, man. Pours gold with a fleeting but lacy white head. Aroma is a biff-bam-pow of fruity hops. Flavor is juicy fruit hops, with an focus on peach and pineapple. Malt background is muted and there’s a bit of alcohol burn in the finish. Very good and a reasonable price for such a big hop monster.

Bottle pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrusy hops. Flavor is lots of hop and citrusy fruits. Easier on the palette than I expected.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2009
Fantastic big fruity citrusy & pine hop aromas that are nicely followed through in flavors. Peach and dry-apricot. Has a nice citrusy sweetness, aroma a bit of earthy wildness, all in the hops. Finish is softly green and lightly bitter without over-riding the subtle tastes and aromas, great balancing act. Kind of pineapple-lemon fragrance... I love the fruit character here which is from masterful use of hops against an integral supporting-role pale malt. Quintessential reason to seek IPAs.

Bottle - Wasn’t gonna try it but glad I did. I thought it would be good but it is better than I anticipated. Just a good solid beer! Nice aroma, color, flavor. Cheers!
