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 Total Wine. Pop the top & worship the hop. Big whiffs of pine & tropical orchard. Such a beautiful hop perfume. Deep notes of resin, mango chutney, orange marmalade & honey dripper malts. The real game winner here is the two-for-one prize of high octane hops & high drinkability. Where many double IPAs inevitable either bury the hops in too much malt or forget that drinking should be a pleasure. Sure, I’d be game for even more hop firepower but this is such a pleasure to drink. I can only imagine how much better this would be fresh & on tap.

650ml bottle. Clear golden orange in colour with a long lasting thin white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very hoppy, lots of caramel, pine and citrus. The flavour is again straight up hops but with wonderful balance with toasted caramel hops, good sweetness as well. Hoppy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and hoppy. This is a wonderful DIPA, love the balance between the hops and malt.

Way too sweet for me and my wife also. Carbonation very weak. We love strong IPA’s in the 70 - 105 I.B.U. range but the strong sweet flavor of this one overpowered the hops.

24oz bottle - in a tulip, after opening the bottle you immediately taste the hoppiness, very grassy/resinous taste, crisp and fresh. Dry and rather bitter aftertaste (has 100+ IBU - so you know what you’re getting in to). Maltiness is very slight and not to sweet, accompanies the hoppiness very well.

Aroma dominated by the hops, primarily grapefruit aromas. Some bready malt aromas in the background. Color is a a clear, light amber. Small off-white head. Mild sweetness, strong hop bitterness. Medium body; distinctly crisp on the palate; medium carbonation; long finish with carbonation first, then grapefruit hops and finally a little sweet bready malt. Overall a good IPA. Personally I prefer somewhat more balance from the malt. While this has some malt presence, the hops really dominate.

Pours a clear copper with a head that just keeps growing. Has that really piney aroma that first pulled me in to US IPA’s. It’s a ton of piney hops in the flavour with a delicate bitter finish but it feels a bit watery and oily at the same time.

Strong pine resin aroma. Pours clear effervescent light gold with a thick foamy bright white head that fades very slowly leaving foam on the glass. Soft mouthfeel with strong pine and citrus flavors and a grassy hint. Strong hops bitterness but is better balanced than the aroma would lead one to believe.
