Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on.

Bottle. Poured copper with a frothy off-white head that settled to a ring. Floral aroma with a light alcohol backing. The flavor found floral hops and caramel. Medium body and a mild bitterness.

Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours hazy orange with medium white head. Aromas of orange, vanilla, creamy pine and citrus. Round body, slightly aged it seems as more caramel flavors are showing up. Smooth finish, easy drinking at 10%. Pretty good.

beerbaaron (1194) - Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Cloudy orange cream color. Frothy, medium white head, mostly lasting, lots of lace. Aroma is rich, sweet, citrus, orange, peach, grapefruit, caramel, floral, maybe a little vanilla(?). Flavor is much the same. Big, full body, smoooth hoppiness, creamy, mild lingering bitterness, a little dry. Very good.

Aroma not very pleasing, slight dirty sock smell Taste malty with a herb hint to it. Much better tasting then smelling. Nice clear color. Would drink another, just avoid smelling. Guess I am used to the flowery odors.

ccex (921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bomber purs aclear orange/amber color with decent off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, but there;s a touch of the requisite citrus and floral hops here, too. Body is medijm with average carbonation. Tastes sweet at first with some bitterness in the short finish.. Body is medium to full. Alcohol is discernable, but there’snothing foul in this. I’m glad to have tried this one, an average or better IIPA.

halfonit (1163) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a deep and dark amber/brown color with a thick off white head. Aroma is of hops, malts, bread, some caramel, and some earthiness. Flavor is quite a bit more malty than I was expecting. There’s definitely a hop presence and some booziness that comes right up front but it then smooths out and finishes with a subtle sweetness. Glad to have had this one.

ElGaucho (2200) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bomber. Caramel notes in in the nose are hindered by old, wet leaves. Mostly clear light amber with a thin, off-white head. Nice lace. Flavor is much better than the aroma. A very unique double IPA. Softly carbonated with caramel notes. Hops are hidden behind the alcohol. Warming, moderately sweet. Some pepper in the finish. A good brew, and one of the few I’ve had from the state of Idaho.

daleharshman (900) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($6.29). Pours a clear orange-amber color with two fingers of long-lasting creamy white head which leaves some really good lacing. Aroma of sweet spiced caramel, spruce/pine forest, grapefruit zest, and some floral hops. Flavor of soapy caramel, grapefruit, pine needles, some sticky fruit, bready malts, and vegetal hops. Finishes somewhat bitter, somewhat sweet. Doesn’t conceal the big 10.85% quite as well as it should, but it’s not too boozy. Quite malty…seems to lean more toward a hoppy barleywine than a DIPA.

jhgrantjr (417) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Poured a golden color with a big creamy looking head. Lots of lacing. Immediate aroma of hops, but its a malty hop smell, makes it sweet. Taste is slightly bitter, but malty with some caramel. Don’t think this leans towards the floral side. Much more pine and malt. Medium bodied to full, with a thick and sticky taste. This is especially true as it warms. The malty character comes out and it becomes thicker.
