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 Bottle. Holy Cow. Destroys my tastebuds..and by destroy I mean makes sweet love to them, and doesnít call the next day....and doesnít return text messages or e-mails......sobs. Extremely good DIPA, especially for the price. Woot

malrubius (2609) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 23, 2009
22 ounce bottle in pint glass. (Whatís with the snifter recommendation for everything?) Golden with lasting head and full lace. Extremely piney resiny grapefruit aroma with mild toasted honey biscuit. Mild toasted honey with floral grapefruit candy sweet fruitiness and tangy citrus bitterness. Lighter than expected body, very drinkable and refreshing and delicious. Not astringent or bitter-for-the-sake-of-being bitter. This is not a hop-novelty. Awesome. More please.

From bottle. Strong fruit and hops aroma. Full mouthfeel. Great value - $6/bomber. Definitely worth the money.

Fresh 22oz bomber that I picked up a couple of days ago. Pours a deeper golden yellow with a good white head that laces my glass nicely. Nose is resiny hops with grapefruit, pineapple and some floral presence. This one isnít as sweet as I like, but does have plenty of bittering hops. I really enjoy this brew from Lagunitas and you canít beat the price. Solid DIPA for sure.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
You almost miss the Belgian or Farmhouse character through the hops. At first taste it is just a Double IPA. Dark golden amber with a lasting head and lacing that extends from top to bottom of the glass. Strong, but not heavy. earthy hop flavour. Thick, but not syrupy, body. Not overly sweet. Hops are most noticeable at the middle to the finish. The aftertaste is where the light farmhouse funk rises past the hops making you delay the next sip.

Pours clear orange color with white head. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine. Similar fruity flavors with a sweet malt backbone. Nice hop bitterness. Thick and chewy mouthfeel. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 On tap at Deep Ellum. really incredible aroma of fruits and hops, very nice. Taste of strong hops, not as much fruits as observed in the aroma. Really nice IPA

crackedmachine (479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2009
This version is 7.7% ABV, 102 IBU (although it doesnít taste like 102 IBUs to me). Pours a transparent, dark orange, with a very thin head. The aroma is insane. It smells like a freshly opened package of hops, but with an underlying sweetness. Following that, the taste is about as would be expected. Hops and more hops, although I donít find it terribly bitter. More floral, piny and sweet grapefruit. This is a ridiculously good beer for hop lovers.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 21, 2009
22oz bottle, 7.7%abv. Dark gold with a thick white head. Floral and citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit and light pine hop flavors with medium bitterness and medium-sweet pale malt flavors. Medium bodied, and on the light side for style. Frankly, not really nearly as hoppy or bitter as I has expecting, still a bit better that Maximus, but not a great improvement for a year-round IIPA. Iíll definitely have to pick up another bottle at 3.99 though.
