COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Bomber from the local shop down the road. A sparkling, golden-orange body with a lasting, filmy head and blanketing lacing. Looks sticky and vibrant. In your face grapefruit and lemon aromas backed up by fresh flowers and heavy pine. Good abundant scent to make the mouth start to water. Bitingly bitter feel with a medium, dry body. Fairly warming to the belly with a lingering bitterness. Fresh oranges and lemony grapefruit followed by resinous pine and a noticeable biscuit/bread malt backbone. Not as over the top as I was anticipating considering the 102IBU claim on the bottle, either way it was more than satisfying.

very nice and fresh aroma--prominently pine and somewhat spicy; lightly cloudy, golden body with white soapy head and fair lacing; excellent flavor--notes of grapefruit, orange zest, and dough; smooth; great drinking overall.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head recedes to skim rim. Resin and pine aromas. Deep dark caramel upfront with a lasting grapefruit finish.

I was surprised by the sweetness and overall fruity nature of this one. Almost barley wine in flavor. Very good overall.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2011 Clean light gold, brilliantly so, with an oily white head that left a uniform thin lacing down the glass. Clean concentrated hop aroma, crisp with orange peel. Light bodied, clean consistent focused west coast hop character. Not a lot of depth but plenty of flavor. Sessionable beer for hopheads were it not 8.2%. 040511 Liking this more than the previous 3.4. Abrasive blend of Summit and Simcoe. I think. Gives me my big resiny fix.

The aroma has a wow factor with pineapple, grapefruit, biscuits, caramel, and an overall fruitiness. The appearance is deep gold with an amber hue. The head is large and fluffy. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is a great beer. I love it.

Bottle from Knightly Spirits. This just hit the shelves so Iím drinking it quite fresh. Pours an orange color with a somewhat thick foamy off-white head that settles to a thin layer. Nice lacing. The aroma is a wonderful scent that is really just a whole bunch of fresh hops. Honey flavor, melons, mixes with a pretty good grapefruit and pine hop combo, although not as intense as the aroma, and thereís some sweet maltiness to keep this balanced. Sharp bitter finish. Iím not sure if the hops are really Imperial IPA level but this is still a nice drink, tasty, yet easy drinking and nothing really out of place. Maybe Iíll pick up another bottle or two of this, especially at the Lagunitas $3.99 discount.
